    Its a reputation meeter. The more threads and posts of yours that people click the "thumbs up" like button on the more bars you get.

      If that's the case then any "Like" in the Open Forum shouldn't count. Everyone knows that "Thanks" were thrown around that Forum in the past like confetti at a 5th Avenue parade.

                I have a reputation but it's not worthy of hash marks.

                  When I removed my thanks you went to zero. I added my thanks again and you went back up. It appears the hash markers are specific to a single post.

                      Hash marks? I don't have no stinking hash marks! Can't even "like" my own posts. That's okay, I'll just color in my hash marks.
                      P.S. Anyone know why I get a yellow bar at the bottom of my screen after posting that asks if I want to save or open a file from Ridgid.com?

                        Consider yourself hashed.

                          First few days I had 4 and a few had 2. everyone else had 0.

                          today, the marks exploded for no rhyme or reason.

                          just as well, everything else is all screwed up with the new forum software.

                            The "marks exploded" because we continue to fine tune the site. The reputation meter is a new feature and we are still playing with it to see what makes sense.

                            Just another way for folks to see the contributions of those on the Forum. You get points for joining, liking, starting threads...a bunch of stuff. They build up over time. The description for each of the "bars" are listed below. What counts and point values is something we can administer but is pretty complex. We took a stab at it and think the rankings were a bit low at launch so we tweaked them. We are looking into making adjustments but still have some homework to do. As mentioned before, be patient with us...still trying to get this baby fine tuned!

                          Something is being downloaded onto our computers now when we post. Not sure what it is but as I said on another post I'll wait until they fix this. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about but better to be safe than sorry. Last post until this is fixed and explained.
