I have added user reputation controls to the profiles. You can vote positive or negative on posts and the users now have symbols (I'll try to find better ones, but these will do for now) that indicate their relative popularity on the forum. This is probably a good idea with a forum like this because it enables new users to somewhat judge the reliability of the posters. I'll update everyone on the way this moves forward, because we will want to tweak it till it reflects things accurately. Let me know what you think. When you really don't like someone now, you can vote down their reputation and help warn others how they stand in our community. Here is how the vB reputation 'dots' work: One green dot is given for every started 100 reputation points. From 500 points on, one bright green dot is given for every started 200 reputation points. One red dot is given for every started 100 negative reputation points. From 500 negative points on, one bright red dot is given for every started 200 negative reputation points If a user has 0 reputation points, a gray dot is displayed. If a user has chosen to turn off reputation in his Control Panel (under options) a black dot is displayed.
