    Basically, if you agree with a post you can give it positive rep, and if you disagree you can give it negative rep. The amount of rep you can give depends on your post count, how much rep you have, and how long you've been registered. 100 positive rep points gives you another green gem

    But what really is the point of it?
    Will people stop talking to you if you have loads of negative rep?

    There isn't really that much point. It makes people feel good when the get positive rep though! People won't stop talking to you if you get negative rep unless you've really done something to deserve it.

    There's no way of knowing who gives you rep unless they leave their name
