I haven't been on the boards too long and was wondering how a person's "reputation" gets higher? Do people vote? Is it how many posts you do?

Do you see the plus and minus sign in the upper right hand corner of the post? The plus ups the posters reputation and the minus lowers it, so it's done by people saying if they like that post or not. Hope that helps.

It is not the number of posts you write, but if the information in a post was helpful to you, and you wish to give it a "thumbs up", so to speak, just click on the plus sign.

I do not think voting a post down occurs very often. I have only seen it once or twice in 2 years of reading posts on this forum. There's really no need for it unless someone is waaaaay off base or has posted something incredibly inappropriate, rude, cruel or unacceptable. Fortunately, the majority of our members are not inclined to post such things and the moderators/admin do an fantastic job of watching for appropriate content.

This "vote up " is not meant to be a popularity contest.It is more like a "this is great, helpful info, thanks!" or "this is funny, and I liked it, thanks!" :)

At least, that is how I interpret the "vote up" button. :)
