    I have noticed that when I click on my profile, then click activity. I get 2 rep points saying welcome to our forum. Not that I care too much about reps, but it seems an easy to get back points lost for putting Trump on blast or some other stupid political rant.

    Is this a glitch or normal.

    A peace and love

    It's normal, anytime you make adjustments to your profile, change layout color or avatar you will get 2 pts. In theory you could change layout colors all day and go up 2 pts at the time :snicker:

    My kids whine less about stuff than you do about your reps.

    That's probably someone putting you on or off block

    When I made my first thread I didn't notice the meta tag requirement. As a result, my rep points went into the negative (big time). I'm slowly crawling out of that hole but I'm not sure how/why which leads to my question. How do you get rep points (aside from receiving 2 points every time you change your profile)?
    Note: Shuli conducted a 2 part interview with me that aired (over 2 days) on the very first History of Howard Stern... then again, these days, that might earn me more negative posts!
