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

    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
