    If someone with a higher "ranking" dings you, it gives you a lot more negative rep than a noob and might show up as more red as opposed to just removing some green. So, someone didn't like something you said. I'd say don't worry much about it :) You should be able to see the negative rep comment in your UserCP, but it won't say who it was from unless they told you in the comment.

    thanks j , I'm far from worried, I still live in the real world too lol... Im gonna go look for the comment, I wish I knew who I pissed off, so I could do it more ;)

    I just checked, who ever did it didn't leave a comment, friggen coward... what ev' I only noticed it because I got a couple pm's about it.... But I just checked and I'm still young, have great kids, a hot wife, and a bank account full of money so I guees the red dots didn't change me much..... Although my shoulder still hurts, but not any more than before when I had green :)

    Green = Positive ...... Red = Negative

    Derailing someone's thread with tasteless pictures, comments like the one above, making racial, or stereo typing a culture, like Red = Indian, and just being a richard will make your green go to red.

    Anything said on this forum is in fun, nothing malicious or with ill intent will ever be said by me, if it appears that way someone misunderstood... I know there are some Older guys on here that may miss my humor, but I mean no harm. Plus who cares what someone says on an audio forum... There just happens to be a whole world happening outside them windows.....

    I will admit I joke around a lot, but all in fun, and if someone doesn't like it, then I guess I will just have to post with a line of red dots....

    I thank all who pm'ed me and added to my rep to get me back in green, I appreciate it, good looking out, fellas...

    Well, I was playing around with that "add to reputation" feature and added to yours to see what would happen.

    Guess since I've been around for a while, it carried some weight ;)

    lol, Great job PD :)
    To see how senior on rep you are you can click on Community -> Members List -> Click on Reputation to sort it

    Alex is the king of Rep and you and me humbly share the first page :)

    The issue is "Thanks" button only adds 3 points to rep count, while giving direct reputation, especially from member with higher rep carries significantly higher weight -> the change from single rep change from say Alex could be in several thousands of points

    At one time long time ago I got dinged for violating forum rule - I recovered from that, but it did took a long time... As soon as possible I'll give Imc some green rep - his posts been mostly helpful, especially for new visitors.

    You're welcome :D

    I was curious to see how much green I could do. Not bad from 2 reds I guess.

    it's show right below your join date, post count etc. Green = good. Red = bad
    Too see the log - click on User CP and see the "Latest Reputation Received" Table. Thanks gets signed automatically. Direct rep points aren't, sometime people remember to sign, sometimes they don't :)

    I dinged you into the red because you wouldn't quit derailing Adam's HT thread and signed my name to it. You just missed it.
