    Silver rep

    Just checked my profile and I have been given rep but it appears in silver/grey. Any idea what this is ?

    Dude... I thought it was a legend! it's a vBulletin special prize. Once in year, a person is randomly chosen. This person who gets the grey (grail) dot gets free pizzas for one year.

    No it's just someone that hadn't enough rep to affect your rating.

    Damn now that would be hot. What kind of pizza though?

    P.S. thanks for the help! I'd give you rep but I already gave you some in the last couple of days

    You learn quickly, my young Padawan learner.

    I'm far too hungry now at the mention of pizza to make any worthwhile contribution to this thread (duuudie answered it correctly, of course). So instead I will go the route of most rep threads beforehand and focus in on some pseudo random facet of vB that we will all become focused on for this thread. Today's rep distraction is pink lists, in honor of Valentine's day and Vinnie Garcia:


    • I'm listing up a storm here
    • Squirrel
    • :repwhore:
    • Rep threads are "sweet".

    I believe this means you got rep, but it didn't give you any points... from someone with negative rep. or something.

    Doesn't have to be negative rep- a new user, for example, doesn't have enough rep on them to give you rep, so they'll also give you a silver (zero) dot. Even if the new user has some rep it still might take a few points for them to transfer it on to you.

    In order to give rep you need a reputation of at least 10. All new users are given a reputation of 10 when they sign up. So, all users have one point of rep-power when they sign up. The only thing is, they can't give any rep until they reach 50 posts.

    It's also very different with negative rep. I believe you have to have a lot more positive rep before you can give any negative rep. I haven't fully looked into this, so anyone who knows vbulletin better than I might be able to clarify this.

    Of course, even if you don't have any power to give rep, you can still leave feedback, it's just that the rep you give will be neutral.

    I think the fact you have to wait til 50 posts to give rep is a bit harsh. There are lots of new users I've helped here who should be able to give me rep

    Haha... This is true.

    Your neg-rep power is half your pos-rep power, so I guess you need 2 pos-rep power in order to give neg-rep.
