Reputation is used to determine the trustworthiness of a user on D3scene.com. It shows how much the user contributed to the forums. Usually the more rep (reputation) the user has, the better his name on our community is. This thread covers reputation, reputation-power and thank-you. Please read the full post .
So, what is this reputation, or "rep" as people call it?
It's practically the forum translation for the hinduistic/buddhistic 'Karma' belief.
Whenever you post something that helps or you contribute to the community, your fellow forum members have the possibility to give you reputation.
You can see the amount of reputation a user has in the postbit area on top of each post:

Tracky made a video guide showing how to give rep. Video is attached below:
What is Reputation power?
So, each user has something called "Reputation Power" or "rep power", which determines how much rep you give a user by repping him one time. We use this system because a reputation from a trusted global moderators of course counts more than the reputation of a normal registered user.
When you're being active for a time, you get rep power. You also get rep power for posting and reaching a certain amount of rep. A variety of factors are taked into the rep power algorithm.
What is Thank you?
Then there is of course the button. will give rep to a certain user as well, however regardless of your Rep power it will always add 1 rep to the user's reputation count. This is good if you have a high rep power, so you can decide whether you want to give him the full dose or just a bit.
Farm rep, be promoted to a better user group!
-If you gather 50 reputation points, the forum will automatically promote you to the Elder User usergroup, which grants you access to the Chatbox and thus you can communicate with forum members quickly.
-At 350 reputation you will be auto-promoted to Premium Member, which will grant you access to our Premium Boards and thus a huge variety of new possibilities and information.
-Once you reach 1000 reputation, you may apply for our 'Contributor' rank. The staff team will then vote whether or not you will be promoted. This rank is rewarded with a prize of your choice. It's either an official D3Scene Shirt or another item (with a limitation of how much it may cost ) and a fancy username color.
I think that's it for now. Feel free to notify me if something is missing.
