So by now some of you may have noticed that we implemented a new reputation system on the forums last night, some of you will have played around with it to see what it can do, but most of you will probably not have noticed (or still be wondering why you have Italian flag coloured numbers by your login name. So you have logged in and you can see this (well hopefully you see your version and not mine): The green numbers are the likes you have received, the white are any neutral rep you have received and red ones are bad (tut tut)! So on to the interesting bit (hopefully), you will notice that every post on the forum now has an extra set of icons on the bottom right corner: These are there for you to upvote or downvote a post depending on whether you deem it is useful or not, similar to upvoting or downvoting on Reddit (posts do not float up if they have more votes, but downvoted posts will be hidden). Upvotes, downvotes etc will ping you an alert when you log in to the forum, so you can see if people like (or dislike) what you have posted. You will also be able to see how many likes/dislikes (and the type) that you have (or those of others) when you look at the posts: As you can see someone thought that Nerien's post above was informative (someone else thought it was optimistic, although it could just be Hsulf's love of rainbows).
