What do the little green/gray/red squares mean?

You can see a member's reputation easily by the number of "gems" that are displayed below their avatar, on each of their posts. The Green gems indicate a positive reputation, the gray gem indicates an unknown reputation, and red gems indicate a bad/negative reputation.

How does the number of gems reflect the member's rep point count?

Each rep gem represents one "level" of reputation. The list of levels is below:

  • User has reputations disabled. Only admins can do this.
  • 0 - 99 points
  • 100 - 199 points
  • 200 - 299 points
  • 300 - 399 points
  • 400 - 499 points
  • 500 - 699 points
  • 700 - 899 points
  • 900 - 1099 points
  • 1100 - 1299 points
  • 1300+ points

If you hover the mouse over the rep gems you will see a tooltip showing their number of points (to the nearest group).

It is also possible to see someone with a black gem. This indicates that their reputation score has been disabled. Generally this applies only to admins.
