How can I see how many reputation points I have?
There are four ways:
1. The number of green or red bars next to your posts.
2. The message you see displayed when you place your mouse over the light bars.
3. Click your own "give reputation" icon.
How do I give someone reputation?
On every post, there is a scale icon beneath one's avatar and personal information. This is the reputation button.
Click it on the post you wish to leave reputation for, select either "Approve" (positive reputation) or "Disapprove" (negitive reputation) and, if you wish, leave a message. Then click "Add to reputation" to complete the process.

How do I see the reputations I've been left?

How can I figure out who gave me a reputation comment?
Unless you're a mod, or a Super Moderator or an admin checks your profile for you, there is no way to be certain. The only other way to know is if they leave their name in the rep, or you can figure it out by the comment they left.
What do the colors in the reputation recieved window signify?
Negative Rep: You lose points.
Null Rep: Member who repped you doesn't meet the requirements to give rep away. Your points stay the same.
Positive Rep: You gain points.
For every year that your a registered member, you get one point of reputation power.
For every 1,000 posts you get one point of reputation power.
For every 100 points of rep you get one point of reputation power, you must have at least 50 posts for your rep to count (when giving it to others).
You must have 10 rep for your rep to count (when giving it to others, and that means if you have negitive rep, it wont count).
You can only give 10 reps per day and you must rep 10 people before you can rep the same person again.
