If you are color blind Brian, then I am too. I do not see difference too. It is also scientifically proven that women can see more colors than men. We should wait for some female members to confirm.

Often times I have been chided for my sense of humour even though it was meant with best intentions
though you have not spoken to him much, have you gone through his posting history? If not I think you should. He is one of the most colorful character here on LQ.

No, it looks the same shade of green to me. But I am partially red-green colour blind...
Actually I have just gone back to page one and read about the new system in context and it actually seems to discrimate in favour of the clueless classes. Suits me fine, then. Bit unfair on those members who were into points scoring with the "Thanks" system though!

Yeah, a nice shade of green, especially after too much alcohol.

What does the bar mean? Isn't there any numerical representation of the reputation?

I was wondering if I can have the option to display the alt text underneath - Mine says something about undecided.... maybe the server was still calculating as it still showed as Green


P.S. @suprstar - Don't know if you were joking, but black is when its been disabled.

This could be open for abuse - but hopefully people posting good infomation will get rep'ed up for good infomation, and so on.... Extra points if your the first reply maybe? Even then need to be careful.

That's where the reputation system plays an important role !
That person will be Down voted (may be many times by different people).

Assumption: Some Reputation points will be subtracted on a down vote !

He will again have to gain some reputation points to continue further and thus he'll be careful !

Nothing happens when I click on the bar.

I'm using Chromium, if that matters.

Dunno, haven't got Chromium. What happens if you hover your mouse cursor over it?

Doesn't do anything if I click on the "bar" = green blob in internet explorer either.

However, on your OWN posts, you should have a little scales symbol, click this and it'll show your current rep.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Mods now have the ability to give rep and I'll be rolling that ability out in stages. You will not see the "scale" in posts by other members until this ability is rolled out to your usergroup.
