All about reputation......
The colored "pips" below each member's username, next to or above each post, show that member's reputation score.
Each of the dark green reputation pipsequals 25 reputation points.
Once you have 5 dark green pips you move on to light green pips.
Each of the light green reputation pipsequals 50 reputation points.
Once you have 5 light green pips you move on to yellow pips.
Each of the yellow reputation pipsequals 100 reputation points.
Once you have 5 yellow pips you move on to blue pips.
Each of the blue reputation pipsequals 250 reputation points.
Once you have 5 blue pips you move on to ruby pips.
Each of the ruby reputation pipsequals 500 reputation points.
Once you have 5 ruby pips you move on to another color.
You can see other member's or your own reputation score if you click on the username or avatar. It will be displayed on the pop up information panel, on the right side.
How reputation scores are calculated:
New members start with 0 reputation points.
- Each time someone reacts with 'like' or 'Haha' on one of your posts you get +1 reputation point
- Each time someone reacts with 'Helpful' or 'Love' post rating button on one of your posts you get +2 reputation points.

Only registered forum members can hit the buttons, guests cannot.
Admission to the restricted area
You will need 60 posts, a reputation score of 50, and to have been a member for at least 1 month. Once you meet all these criteria you will gain access automatically (the system updates accounts every 5 minutes).
Any forum member who achieves a reputation score of 1,000 or more will become a lifelong member of the Senior Member's Area. Senior Members with reputation scores of between 50 and 1,000 have to post once every 90 days minimum to keep their Senior Member status.
Members with over 1,000 reputation points have lifetime immunity to demotion.Have you ever considered letting a lapsed member with a high reputation score get back in with fewer posts? When I originally got in I think I only needed 30 posts, now it’s double that and kind of burdensome, the posting is not the problem really, making sure it is quality is
