What's this REP POWER thing?

I see on posts now REP POWER followed by a number and having green boxes beneath.

From our moderators - can you explain this to me?

Also nice to see that a senior member is just someone who has been hanging around this list for a long time. Can be misleading as I know my own circumstances - and all that my knowledge encompasses is just sailing experiences and boat ownership for the past 8 years and a bit of sailing as a kid - where someone like Jeff has been involved in the busioness for his entire life ....

Just curious ....

It's been discussed ad nauseum in several other threads, which you can access through the search function. As to the Senior Member designation, that is merely a default one, based on number of posts.

It is a measure of your worth in life, whether you are liberal or conservative, and how good looking you are.

Two squares means you are perfect, beautiful, awesome, knowedgeable, a outstanding sailor, and modest. Anything on either side of two squares (more or less), and you have very serious issues and are lacking in one or more of the areas above.

Hope that helps. Other than that, I really don't have a clue and would not worry about it!! Seriously. Some of the most knowledgeable people on this site may only have a rep of one!!!

PS I have heard that Cam (the other moderator) checks his squares every day like a horoscope. No wonder he has been so depressed lately!!!

I thought the number of squares equaled the number of barbeque grills on the person's boat. Go figure.

You will never get two squares with that attitude. (smile)

Or is it that "Rep Power," not squares equals number of grills? CD - I see that your rep power is 4. How many grills are you sporting these days? I noticed a power boat with a grill on the pulpit (bow rail) last weekend. If we don't use our headsails, that may be a way to double the number of grills on our boats!!

EDIT - Meant pulpit (corrected)

Actually, my rep was 30 or 40 something. I had to give Cam and Sailingdog a bunch of mine. They need all the mental support they can get.

I thought it had something to do with the size of your spar. Guess I was wrong.

To quote Seinfeld, "Can you spare a square?"

I guess the real question is if they're one ply squares, or the nice double quilted
