    a comment is the content of a point. it can be left "empty". then the point will be pretty meaningless.

    as for the numerical value or the worth of the point, i dont get it myself

    I don't expect a reply when I leave a rep comment. It's just a nice little gesture to show someone I appreciated their post - no return necessary.

    Well in order to leave a comment you have to give a rep point. Just try this. See the the little scale on the bottom left corner of my post, between the circle and the yield sign? Click on that, and the rep point coment pop-up should come up allowing you to make a comment. When done typing, just click "Add to Reputation".

    What the hell is Vent? Is it a secret club?
    It's an audio chat room program. Just imagine, I could seduce you all-night with my actual voice.

    Hmmmm. Audio chat makes me think I would need some kind of device to speak into. I'm not sure, but i don't think I have this.

    There's also text chat. There's others who don't have a mic either, and most people don't talk anyway. They just use text chat. So you'll be fine.

    A microphone. Although there is a text chat portion of the program.

    "help" = "give cupcakes to" ?

    They're called "reputation points" because, on similar forums (and on this one, once upon a time), you click other users' reputation scales to lower or raise their reputation. Then all the world will know how other members value their posts: positively, negatively, very positively, very negatively, mainly neutral, etc. On some forums that have this feature, some members have a giant red bar under their names, instead of a small harmless green square. This means that the other members of the forum have continuously given that person negative reputation points: often because they just didn't like what the poster said. (You can also see posters with large green bars, which means the opposite.)

    You can see how that system can lead to hurt feelings, abuse of the originally helpful purpose, and because veteran posters are usually allowed more potency for any reps they give, can foster a clique-like atmosphere...

    So apparently this site had decided long ago to shut off the whole system. We can still send messages to each other in those boxes, but with no real purpose anymore.

    Ventrilo: You should sign up, though the signing up process is kind of confusing. You can text-chat with us, like on AIM, etc., and also can hear us speaking in real voice. If you get a microphone, you can do the same.

    So if I don't know if I have a mic then I probably don't have one, right? (honestly, I am not joking about being stupid about this stuff - this is getting humiliating)

    Also, I'm glad we've got the rep thing turned off on this site. And anyone who says it's because I would have a red line through my name and not because I am simply a kind person, is lying.

    Yes, probably.

    Do you have one of these?



    Or any of the infinite variations there are. If you don't, no voice chat for you! But you could still use text.
