Every new member starts out with a rep level of 50.
Rep power (Determines how many points you give a user when you rep them)
Register Date Factor - 1 point per 365 days
Post Count Factor - 1 point per 1500 posts
Reputation Point Factor - 1 point per 2500 rep points you have.
If you negative rep someone, it will be half of your green rep power. So if you are able to give someone 100 points, if you gave them red rep, you would give them 50.
You can give another user green or red rep by clicking the rep icon . It will then take you to a page and ask if you agree or disagree with that users post. Do be careful, flaming via rep will be treated as though it is flaming on the forum or via PM and you can be warned/banned for doing so. If someone does flame you via rep, or stretches out your rep page with a large picture, PM a Super Mod or Admin and we will take care of it.
You can check who has given you rep by looking at your User CP. If you see grey rep, it has been given to you by someone who has red rep. Gray rep=0 points. The only way you will know if it was meant to be positive or negative will be based on the comment they leave.
You are limited to giving out rep 10 times over a 24 hour period and must rep 15 people before you can rep the same person again.
Reputation means nothing. It allows members to have a bit of fun.
To help support the site and increase your options on the site you can choose to buy either a Premium or Lifetime Membership. Paypal is fine.
With a paid membership, you will receive:
-Access to the arcade
-Access to the chatbox
-Usertitle editing rights
-Ability to use gifs in sigs
-VIP section for paid members
-Much more PM space
If you wish to buy a membership for another user you have to get their name and password from them, login to their account and purchase it that way. If whilst doing that you do anything to that users account, even make posts, you can be banned. If you allow someone to buy a membership for you it may be wise to change your password afterwards. If you have any issues please PM an Admin.
Paid members are not above being warned or banned. You are treated the same way as any other user and paid members can find themselves permanently banned.
File Exchange & Wrestling Multimedia
To stop lurkers joining just to access the File Exchange and Wrestling Multimedia, members can not access the section unless they have 50 posts. If you are caught spamming for media access, you will be banned.
Name changes are available for paid members only via the thread in the VIP section. Do not PM staff members requesting changes.
Why do certain non-staff members have different name colors?
They are champions in our Debate League. Each champion gets a name color change of their choice. Once they lose their title, they lose their name color.
Non-paid member signature uploads
Non-paid members upload signatures different from paid members. To use a signature, to go edit signature, and scroll down to the upload picture section. Use option two to upload a signature.

Can I get notifications when I'm quoted?
Short answer; no. Long answer is still no. Unfortunately our version of the forum doesn't support this ability, however a simple work-around is to use the search function, then advanced search then type in your username and it will bring up whenever your name is mentioned (like a quote). It's not a perfect solution but it's the best we have.
Note: If you have special characters in your name like full-stops etc. that work around will not work.
Why do non staff members have colored names?
Members who participate in our Debate League and obtain one of the championships receives a colored name of their choice as a gift for being a champion.
Re: *Forum FAQ* Your answer may be in this thread!
On my phone, I see my old sig instead of the rotating one, not sure why. Not a big deal because I like both, I am wondering if it's because the site is still going through some tech stuff with Administrator.
Note: weird, I see the rotating one in the preview post.

Re: *Forum FAQ* Your answer may be in this thread!
How do you get a transparent avatar? people like Ziggler Mark (I think that's his/her username) have one and the last time I tried that, I couldn't seem to do it unless I made the background the same color as the background color it'll be on when I set it up (which is somewhat grey).
