    Okay I don't care about rep at all but this feature on the site is annoying me as I can't work out what it means haha. When you're on TSR on the main part, which has your watched threads, then below that all the new posts, then posts by people you follow then a bit below that it has rep received.

    It has the recent stuff you've been given rep for but what do the numbers to the left with the thumbs up mean? I assumed it was the total rep you had on that post but it isn't, then I thought maybe the total rep that person had given you but it's not that either. It's annoying me that I can't work out what it means :laugh:

    Bit of a pointless thread but yeah..

    The numbers indicate the number of gems the person who repped you has and by extension the number of rep points you get if that person gives you a thumbs up. For example, I have 12 green gems and so if I rep you you will get 12 points.

    Oh really? I had no idea that you got more points from people with more gems. Seems kinda weird. But cool, thanks :laugh: Thread's over I guess...
