    Ya, it take some time to get use to. Wonder what enhancement does it come with (larger size Avatar, pictures in signature, etc..) :p

    Is it no longer possible to upload custom avatars? That option appears to have vanished from my control panel. :(

    The 75 x 75 avatars are nice, but the new size limit should really be at least 100 x 100. There's still plenty of extra room along that left margin.

    They should be, but i'm not complaining. At least you can make out what people's avatars are now. With 75x75 i had are hard time making out most. Maybe it has a little to do with my poor eye sight.

    :mad: I liked it the way it was! Now it's all smooshy with this HUGE text that requires enormous amounts of scrolling to get past... ARGH. :smuggrin: No offense to the mods, who were trying to make it more palatable to the masses (a noble endeavor), but personally, I really think the new look blows. :thumbdown: *sigh*

    It allows SDNers to see how informative your posts have been. If people don't like your posts, then they can disagree on your opinion (by clicking on the second icon of that person) and their reputation goes down. I you find their posts informative, then people can vote and increase the poster's reputation. To sum it all up, the reputation to a user determines how good are his/her posts (whether their existence on SDN will benefit anyone). :)

    I think it looks pretty cool. Then again, I don't actually reply or use it all that often. That shall change.

    Ditto on the large avatars. My last smaller avatar didnt bring out Bickle's mohawk the way I wanted. :thumbup:

    My updated avatar is beautiful, well at least I think so. :laugh:

    Hey Calculus, you can basically put any picture or animation files that you can find on the web or your computer (the only restriction is that the image must not be larger than 75x75 pixels). You can change to custom avatar by going to User CP and click on 'Edit Avatar' on the left hand side. At the bottom of the page it will give you 2 options to copy and paste the hyperlink where the image can be found on the web, or to browse your computer and locate the image that you want.

    How many karma points do you need to get another green square? I have seen some moderators with a ton, like Dr.Mom.

    This is from a post by the Web Admin:

    For now, SDN Forums are using the default levels for the Reputation System. Frankly, they sound like something from a 'Lord of the Rings' fan site rather than a health-professions site.

    I'd be interested in getting your recommendations on how it should be changed (different titles, levels, etc)...

    User is infamous around these parts -250
    User can only hope to improve -50
    User has a little shameless behaviour in the past -10
    User is an unknown quantity at this point 0
    User is on a distinguished road 10
    User will become famous soon enough 50
    User has a spectacular aura about 150
    User is a jewel in the rough 250
    User is just really nice 350
    User is a glorious beacon of light 450
    User is a name known to all 550
    User is a splendid one to behold 650
    User has much to be proud of 1000
    User has a brilliant future 1500
    User has a reputation beyond repute 2000


    Concise explaining of the reputation system (how the points are given, etc...) - courtesy of WatchingWaiting.
