We are very glad to announce the addition of long awaited reputation system on the forum. What is this Reputation System?
This system is very much similar to the Facebook's like or Google's +1. This system is mainly introduced to prove a way for the members through which they can thank other fellow members on the board for their helpful response or for a useful post that they have made. So, if you give reputation to a member's post, you actually thank him for it.What are all the ways in which I can get reputation?
You can get/give reputation in two ways.
1) By creating new threads (posts) or making reply to the existing threads (response).
For every valid new thread that you make in this forum, you will get +3 reputation and for every valid response you make, you will get +1 reputation.
2) Other way is getting natural reputation from other members in which, you will be reputed (or in other words thanked) for your valid post or response. Am I eligible to give/get reputations to/from others?
Why not? Any member who has registered in TechnicalTalk.net is eligible to get reputations from others. If you have made at least 15 posts on this forum, you are certainly eligible to give reputations to others.How to give reputation for a post made by a member?

The reputation bar is the green thingy that you see below your reputation power in your public posts. Initially, you will have one reputation bar and its number will increase by 1 when your reputation number crosses 1000 every time. For instance, a member having 6234 reputations will have 7 reputation bars.Where can I see my Reputations?
You can see your own reputation power below your display name in each of your post/response. But, to see the exact number of reputations that you have received, you can view it in your profile page.
To see the number of natural reputations that you have received from other members other than the ones received for your posts and responses, go to your profile page, and navigate to the View Reputation

No doubt! A person can give a maximum of 10 reputations per day. This is to restrict members from giving more positive/negative reputations to other members, deliberately.A friend of mine is in business of making more posts in this forum. Can I give him more reputations?
We do not accept any unnatural reputation from members given to other members either be it positive or negative. In such a case, you will be warned and in some extreme cases, your account may even be suspended.
To avoid this, we have made a restriction that a member cannot give reputations twice to the same member unless he has given reputation to three other members.
