It's a slow day.

If I've worked it out right, each rep "dan", for lack of a better term, is worth about 200 rep. Providing they're all equal.

Also, the maximum amount of stars you can have, I think, is 4, So to hit 1 gold you need about 30,000 rep. Maybe... I may have worked it out wrong.
@VeryPC, if you have about 3,400 rep, then it's a solid theory. [15 dan per star, 200 rep per dan, 17 x 200 = 3,400]

Le EDIT: wait... 30k is wrong.

48,000?

Le EDIT 2: nope... 16 dan per star [16 is the star]... 10,909 [mine] / ((16 [star] x 3) + 12) = 181.816666

I'm going to say about 150-175 per dan.

3. Dear me, what have I started! The only thing now is that I always want to be told that I am splendid to behold, therefore all my future posts on edugeek will have to be utter codswallop so that I gain no rep ever again!

You have a pony to tell you. I may need to investigate a similar suitable minion for my own purposes :-)

Ponies for all!

Al, if you have between 2700 and 2850 it's 150, 3150 to 3325 is 175.

150 puts gold at 36,000, 175 would be 42,000... I think. I'm working in the dark here.

Le EDIT: 180 per dan. Final offer.

43200 for gold, Al is on about 3240 - 3420.

Checking, 20k gets you where I am, you need 5 bronze to get a silver and probably 5 silver to get gold so it could be much higher.

Despite having to fight vbulitin every step of the way.

9. Let's break it down, the dark green pips are per 100, the light green are 200, gold are 400 and there are 5 of each so 500 + 1000 + 2000 = 3500 per bronze star, x 5 = 17500 per silver and by progression 5 of those must be gold at 87500

I think the amount of silvers required drops for every gold you have. 0 gold > 5 silver, 1 gold > 4 silver, 2 gold > 2 silver...and so on. I think you can only have a maximum of 4 stars at once. Le EDIT: Dafuq? I can't put things on new lines...

These are a whole lotta numbers - I'm just going to say 'thank you'

I'm on exactly 3150 and have a single brown bronze star plus 2 dark green dots, so I reckon 1 bronze star = 3000 rep which means gold dot must = 300 rep rather than 400:

5 x 100 = 500
5 x 200 = 1000
5 x 300 = 1500
---------------
total = 3000

There's an old thread where @ZeroHour introduces the thanks system and breaks down the green dot points, which confirms 1 dark green = 100, 1 bright green = 200, but does not specify the gold dots

New forum feature: thanks button

I suppose I should follow this through:

5 x 3000 = 15000
5 x 15000 = 75000
5 x 75000
= 375000

But, as @X-13 says, there isn't room for all the bronzes next to your silvers, or your silvers next to your golds, so the number required to get next silver or gold may decrease the more you have, or the system may just not display the extra ones.

Are we reaching the point where someone chimes in with "you know what, it doesn't really matter..."

I both hope so and hope not...

I'm in the middle of working out the algebraic expression to figure it out on the fly... God, I'm such a nerd.

16. I think they designed the rep bars in a complicated manner to taunt us, knowing we are geeks who can't stand problems that must be solved.

That has to be wrong... it's possible to have 5gd [gd = gold dots/dan] and not have the star, the star is for getting >3000 [You actually get it for entering/passing the first lg range [3001 - 3099]]

I am experiencing this first hand... I WILL NOT BE BEATEN!
