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

    • It's not the Teflon that is the problem. It is the tiny amounts of gluten that are hidden in the cracks of previously used cookware. Personally, (and I have had this confirmed by the UCLA celiac center), it is not necessary to purchase new cook ware when going gluten free. Once you have cleaned the cookware well and cooked on it a couple of times with gluten free food, all of the gluten will be gone. What IS necessary is to not continue to cook gluten containing items in those pots and pans. Now that you have your new pots and pans (and hopefully a gluten-free colander and a toaster), label them all gluten-free or not). Don't cook any gluten containing foods in your new pots and pans and you should be good to go.
    • Short answer to this:  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating? All of us!!!!!! It's mourning & it's normal. Breaking down in the grocery store & sobbing? Yep. Normal & I think we've all done it at least once if not multiple times. I would love to say more but dinner is calling me to go make it so I have to run for now. HUGS!
    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
