Thanks for link but it did not work all it said is.

you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

You won't have been able to see that post, Blue Jedi, because it's in a staff discussion forum.

I'll post the relevant bits here for you to see.

The reputation system was the one area of vBulletin that I hadn't had time to look into properly until now. It is quite confusing to begin with, but I think I have it figured out now.

This is how the reputation system works.

Under your username in your posts you will see a reputation power number and a status bar.

There are two values related to the reputation system. Reputation Points and Reputation Power.
Your Reputation Points total is the amount of reputation you have been awarded by others and for other conditions I will list in a moment.
Reputation Power is the number of reputation points you will award another member when you leave them some reputation.
As you gain reputation points your reputation level will increase. Each level is set to increase once a specific number of reputation points has been reached. Think of it working like the forum pips system where you rise through the forum ranks. In a similar way you rise through the reputation ranks as you gain reputation.

Each member starts off with 10 reputation points when they join and a reputation power of 1. This means that they only award 1 point of reputation to anyone when they leave reputation for another member.

New members must have also made 1 post before they can use the reputation system to award others reputation.

When a member reached 50 reputation points they will go up to the second reputation level and gain an extra pip on their reputation bar and your reputation title will move up to the next level. Higher reputation levels have different reputation point requirements. I will list the levels when I get time.

Reputation Power increases in the following ways so that you may award more points with each reputation you award. The number next to your reputation bar is your current Reputaton power.

Reputation power increases by 1 for the following reasons:
Every 30 days you are a member of the board
Every 25 posts you make
Every 50 points of reputation you receive
Restrictions to the system include only being able to give out reputation 15 times within any 24 hour period, and having to award reputation to 3 different members before you can award it to the same member again.

All of these figures can be changed so if we find the reputation system numbers are set too high for the activity and number of reputations awarded on the board, we can reduce and amend the conditions required to gain extra reputation altering power points.

Hope the reputation system now makes sense.
