Say if I help someone out on TSR, then they give me a reputation thumbs up. I check how many points that thumbs up was and sometimes it equals to 0, while others are equal to 12?
Why is this? 0.o

It depends on how much reputation the person who gives you the rep has

Zero rep points come from posters who are new or who have no or negative rep power. Those who have received more rep points have more power in there rep. The green gems by someones name indicated how many points per rep they give. E.g. I give 8 points for 8 gems.

It works better if your profile pic is a cute girl.

Thank you all! Damn, didn't know.

But I also checked how many points my rep was and one time when I had 3 gems, it gave the OP 0 points :rolleyes:

Depends on how fast you got the gems. I think under 50 posts is 0 rep despite how many gems you have. Take that with a pinch of salt till someone else confirms.

I always thought that its 0 because the person that given the rep is a new user. I guess my assumption is wrong.

You get rep based on how much rep the person repping you has.
So if you answer questions from occasional bisitors and they rep you then you get next to nothing.
If you get approval from the popilar or great and the good of rof then their approvval is worth a lot more in terms of rep.
If rep is your aim then get approval from those who have lots of rep.
