Questions about community reputation

Hi, 

I have two questions about how users are displayed on the forums here. First, I've noticed that usernames are sometimes different colors (I think mine is green, others are I think red or coral). What does that signify? I usually view the forum on my phone, if there's a different display setup on desktop. 

Second, what causes community reputation points to go up or down, and what are the different levels of reputation? Mine is neutral, for example, and it would be neat to know what that means.

Explaining the different colors: http://www.freejinger.org/faq/1-site-related-questions/#elQuestion-7

Community reputation is based on people up-voting or down-voting your posts. There are 5 "positive" votes, 5 "neutral" votes, and 5 "negative" votes.

  • Positive (adds one point to total reputation): Upvote, Love, Thanks, I agree, Ha Ha
  • Neutral (no effect on reputation): WTF, Rufus Bless, Bless Your Heart, Sad, Confused
  • Negative (subtracts one point from total reputation): Down vote, Fuck You, Move Along, Disgust, Angry
  • Thank You 4

1)  It's odd to me that angry, for example, is a negative towards the member.     On this site, I often so appreciate commenters that bring forward facts about particular fundies, although  the issue brought forward  angers me.       

I would like to be free to be angry at the fundie ignorance without that being seen as anger at the person who brought the information forward, or for my saying I'm angry to negatively affect the member's reputation..

2)    FYI, the link above (in Bethella's post) to question 7 in the FAQ about the meaning of colour-coding comes up with the error message below:

Sorry, there is a problem

The page you requested does not exist

Error code: 1S160/2

Right, I guess I didn't realize Disgust was negative.  I sometimes use Disgust because of the topic and it's not directed towards the poster.

I’m pretty sure Disgust is no longer negative.  Early on, many users wanted to apply it to the content of the post, not the member.  It’s common and generally accepted to use reactions outside of their original meanings; that’s what happens with Angry.  But you can tell from context how it’s being directed, and people who post things that get Angry are aware that it’s for the content. That being said, reputation points are pretty much meaningless and most of us really don’t care about them, since everyone has a right to their own opinion.

I made a correction to @Bethella 's post - Disgust is neutral not negative.

Beat me too it on the disgust category!

And she is correct - people use different reactions and it's generally pretty clear on what is intended.

(Except for Rufus Bless for me...I have a weird block where I see it negative but most don't and people have assigned a plethora of meanings to that one, which cracks me up.)

She is also correct in that most people don't care about reputation score.  For me it's only telling if it's negative, because you have to work pretty hard here to get a negative cumulative score since people freely toss around upvotes and such.

I equate Rufus Bless with me being a priest and bestowing blessings on the snark flock.

I approach it the same way. I also have some strange thing where I feel like once one person has Rufus Blessed a post I can't also Rufus Bless it because it's like knighting or annointing someone.
