I know that if you have accumulated over 200 points that you can give reputation pointsfor qualtity posts, but is there a maximum number of points you can give out on any single day or week? What about negative points, is there a limit also, and can anyone give negative points?

You are allowed to give 2 reps (positive or negative, or any combination thereof) in a 24 hour period. Your rep point value is based on your own rep points, and # of posts, I believe. The negative rep value is 1/2 of your positive rep value.

I'm not sure of the exact formula, but my rep "power" is currently 14.

I have 16834 posts, and 848 rep points, FWIW.

If I give someone positive rep points, they get 14 points. If I neg someone, I neg them -7.

You can click on the FAQ link at the top of the page, and I believe there is more information on the rep system as a whole.

Hey RL, I'm gonna neg you to see how much power I have. No hard feelings, right?

yeah, just multiply by 2 after you see how many points my total goes down.

Don't forget that step. ;)

FWIW-I have over 4000 posts and a rep of 524 and my rep points given is 6.

I have had people give me as much as 20 and as few as negative 5.

Obviously, the higher your rep, the higher points you can give out.

Until you get to so many points that you can crash the earth by repping someone
