The 'reputation' on my profile is marked neutral, who decides this and who puts the post into this category?  I also noted it is marked (2) but I only see one post under that category.

 

I reread the post and don't view it as offensive.  How do I see the other post if there is indeed two posts that have been reported?

 

I would gladly delete the postings as I don't want to offend anyone on this site.  How do I delete a post, if that is the case?  Can anyone see the reputation category and the posts?  If the posts were deleted would it be removed from my profile?

 

Thanks   :)

A positive number in reputation means someone " liked" your post by pushing the up arrow. This is a function that isn't used much on here. If you have been a member for a while, The " reputation points" were different before the " Upgrade" and you could have some left- over points.

What you worry about are warning points. If you didn't follow the rules of the forum, you would get a warning. A new warning shows when you log- in or refresh your screen. You have to aknowledge it before posting again. So you would know you had one.

Neutral is just the system default. Your reputation is neither bad nor good. But, like I said, its really not a function that is used any longer. People can no longer " vote you down".

Your reputation is visible to everyone. It is zero when you first become a member.
 
In each post, there is a little box on the right side, under the body, but above the signature (if any). When the post is first made, the box is grey and contains the number zero (0).
 
Other members can also see a green square to the left of that box, with an arrow in it pointing up. If a member wishes to, they can click the box with the arrow to express their approval. Doing so will increase the number in the box, and the box will turn green showing the number of votes. A member can only vote once per post, and never on their own posts.
 
Each vote is counted twice. Once on the post where it is made, and once in the profile of the person who made that post.
 
So, in your case, two plus votes have been made. It could be one each on two different posts, or two on the same post.
 
I do not believe deleting a post which has received votes would affect the reputation, but deletion is rare here.
 
For the sake of completeness, there was originally a red down vote button. It was removed last summer, but you may still find old posts where the box is red and contains a negative number.

This is in no way related to the mechanism for reporting objectionable content. Only moderators can see reports.

I hardly ever notice that little up arrow at the bottom right of the posts.  The old system it was more noticeable I think.  But it does work.  I added a one up to your post Sisterlynr.  But I think Peter is right, in the current system it is not used much, it just isn't as noticeable as before.

Okay. . . glad I asked.   :)   So that is similar to the 'like' on Face Book. . . . that's cool.  I have read comments and wanted to like or agree, without writing a reply.  

 

Just to note, this site led me to my diagnosis and I recommend it to to so many people.  I was desperate for a diagnosis so I could receive treatment.   I went online and found questions/replies from people on here.  Once I saw the photos and heard all the like symptoms, I knew without doubt I'd found the answer.  That led me to discussing DH and Dapsone with my PCP.   I'm now on the road to healing.  So many of you have been helpful and it's been a life saver for me!  Thank you so much.   :D

Ha! When I started I thought the green arrow meant "back to top". I couldn't figure out why that thing wouldn't work. But still.... I like you all, I really like you all! :D

    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here.

      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.

      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      I was told by the allergist that there are not tests currently for food intolerance, just testing for allergies.  Maybe it depends on the practitioner that you go to.  That would be a relevant question as well as histamine intolerance testing/treatment when choosing a practitioner.  It is helpful to keep a food log with reactions for reference for yourself and the health care professional that you might consult.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
