    I tested it on the OP and it worked fine - think it was just a post so he could get more rep :P

    Now I've gone and wasted a rep, doh !

    Can I get a refund ?

    I think this is a ploy by you to get us to feel sorry for you and give you rep!

    You dont lose any points as such when you give rep, you just cant give him rep for a while again

    Is there a reason that the 'Thank Post' and 'Rep' systems can't replicate eachother?
    I've been on the site for years and never actually realised that 'Rep' was any different to 'Thank' - if I had known I would have probably 'thanked' those who helped by using the higher value one.

    I'm not sure what the threshold is for it, somewhere around 115 rep power I think.

    EDIT: No that can't be, as you have 120, and mine is only 115, and you've had many more thanks than me.

    Now I'm confused.

    While we're on the subject is there any chance of changing the rep system so that you can see who's given you the rep? it'd be nice to know who's taken the time to give out rep.

    There have been a few cases of negative rep being given to members along with comments that probably wouldn't be sent or posted if they couldn't do it anonymously - this is rare as far as I've seen admittedly

    I'd disagree with this, as instead of anonymous repping, you'd end up with rep warring etc...

    The different green bars/stars come from the number visible in your settings.

    Giving rep gives more rep to someone than thanking them. It is also limited by the 'rep once per 15 people' rule. Thanks can be seen publicly, so you know who thanked your post, and isn't restricted to a number of times per number of people.

    Overall though, they both do the same thing - they effect your rep power, and add to your rep amount which lead to bars/stars.
