Rep power

There are some members who obviously give seriously good advice and are handsomely rewarded for it.

A member like Sailing Dog has posted nearly 42000 posts and has a rep power of 9.

The next post on the same thread has 76 posts and has a rep power of 9 as well.

That is awesome - that's an average of just 8 posts per rep point. Well done, I'll be looking out for those posts in future - they must be really worth reading.

SD, you're averaging only 4633 posts per rep point - you have some catching up to do.

Or is there some sort of system working here??

It used to be accumulated by post count but SN changed that years ago. Now? Who knows....

Rep power seemed to correlate to the number of years on SN.

I feel like a slacker. I haven't even sunk a boat in this decade. I demand parity!

It is a popularity contest as clearly some have made a lot of posts of no real value and others with the same rep have posted things of great value to the community

They had to take away the ability to give negative rep because of the problems that caused when clicks of people disliked someone's different opine and ganged up to turn there rep -RED

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

If you click the little scales icon in the upper right of the post, next to Permalink, that is how you give someone rep power.....

I'm going for -9

That number and the little green squares are just bogus. Who knows what they really mean?

For example, do I really "have a spectacular aura about me"? Sounds like something you'd find in a stale fortune cookie.
