  • What do the forum status bars mean?

    I searched this and other forums and cannot find what the blue bar under our names is.
    I believe that the orange pips is "reputation" level, which increases with "likes" of your posts. Hovering over this will display an appropriate amusing phrase.
    But the blue line remains a mystery to me. Anyone know?

    I'm embarrassed to say I had to look this up!
    The blue bar is your "ranking" bar and is based on how many post you make.
    The Reputation bars is a combination of how many posts and how often one posts and is calculated automatically through the software.

      Well what do you know?! I thought 'rep' was based on 'likes'.
