It was asinine to delete the reps. And "thumbs up" should not in any way be tied to someone's reputation. On the old site, reps were hard earned and only given when you did a write up, a "how to" or posted something truly helpful to the forum. A "thumbs up" could be for nothing more than a funny post.They replaced them with a reaction score and points, click your profile page, they show up there. You are doing quiet well in both @2,350 reaction and 113 points (I only have 820 reactions but same 113 points.) FFSupport only has 35 and 28, respectively lol. I am not sure what the points do (lots of us have 113 for some reason) but then i am also not sure what the rep points did either.
I have been a member here for over 5 years, had 34 hard earned reps and over 100,000 points. I learned a lot here but I feel I also contributed.
