Been discussed many times here. Go into forums and search for rep power and you'll find the answer.

Basically that little icon by the posters name (the green square) - it is derived from number of posts (every 1000 I think) and when someone clicks the justice system icon on a thread to say "I like" or "do not"... two mechanisms used to promote / reward / and otherwise distinquish a members involvement within the site here....

Rep power is a measure of forum contribution that is determined through some mysterious computer-driven calculation. To my understanding, one rep-power is awarded to a member for each 1000 posts he/she makes.

Other factors affect the Rep Power number as well, such as time since first joining SailNet and the amount of Rep Points a member has accumulated. Rep Points are displayed in the bottom of the User CP screen (upper left hand top menu bar).

These points are either increased or decreased, based upon the negative or positive "hits" other posters provide. To do this, click on the little scale icon in the upper right hand corner of the blue bar on each post.

EDIT:
Strange that the sailnet site went down again - my post was posted before I had a chance to finish.

snider,
It's also generally considered good form to give "rep" to others only for their posts in sailing forums and not what they post in "Off Topic". That way, when you see somebody's rep, you've got a pretty good idea they got it by being helpful and knowledgable. Personally, I do not assign bad rep as I feel that, if I object to a post it should be on material grounds and I should publicly share the objection rather than only privately berating them. A lot of members also include their name when assigning rep, so the receiver knows with whom he is dealing.

Well now I really am confused. If you get one of those little green boxes for every 1000 posts why have I only got one when I'm on approx 3500 ? I always knew it wasn't paranoia, the bustards really are out to get me.

TB, you also only have two but you are up to 3800 and SD should have , damn I ran out of fingers, so lots and lots.

The green boxes aren't rep power, but represent how quickly you're gaining rep power on average. The faster your rep climbs, the more green boxes you have... certain individuals have red boxes... that means they've actually got negative rep power growth.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
