    Not the green circle, but the green box on the right hand side.

    Those green tiles under the location and post count are reputation tiles. The more tiles you have the more reputation you have. Supposed to be a form of measure for others to know if you know what you're talking about or if you are a helpful type person.

    Each post has a set of scales on the right side. If you like what some one says or they have helped you out then click the scales and approve that post with your short message. It's annonymous unless you leave your name.

    The more you try to explain those things the harder it gets. There is a calculation to go with the number of posts you have made too. Maybe Fatboy can explain it better than I can.

    The little green box is an indication of your 'reputation power'. It is supposed to be an indication to new arrivals seeking advice of how much you know your stuff. On some other sites that use this software, is has gotten out of control and become a sort of 'social game' and lots of people that don't really know what they are doing have all kinds of rep power.

    We can turn it off and will if it gets out of control and comes to the point where it no longer serves it's purpose.

    As it stands, someone has give you a 'reputation point' which is supposed to mean that you have helped them with their knowledge of outdoor cooking.

    Wear it proudly grasshopper.

    To all else, please make sure that we are only awarding rep points for help with on topic subjects, and not for humor or just because you like someone in general. Like I said, we will continue to have it as long as it is used to serve the purpose for which it was designed.

    And yes, who gives the rep power does make a difference as to how many tile you get.
