I've read this:
Hello, new to forum, I want to know reputation, etc
But it doesn't explain why I never have any rep points to give. I understand that if you give one particular member rep too often then there is a kind of block on giving more rep for a while.
But I don't seem to be able to give anyone any rep points be they old hands or newbes ...
What is the working of the rep points system that I am missing ... ?
