    What is the orange meter under user's pics?

    I am sorry if this has been written about somewhere but I can't figure out what it is supposed to be. The orange meter under user's Pics & Names. Mine's empty, but I have seen others with it partially or completely full.

    I know BF used to have both Reputation and Warn meters but I have no clue what it is here...

    Tried to use search function but still have had no luck. Thanks.

      A valid theory but just reached alpha with my last comment yet my bar has been completely empty this whole time on the site. Yours is almost half full though.

        It wasn't a bad guess.

      It signifies a user's reputation, I believe.

        I believe it is calculated according to the total number of "likes" your posts have received. - There are graduated levels of how many likes per "rung" or "bar" on the "bar-graph".

        If you hover the mouse pointer over them, a title-popup will give an interesting little "comment" (for lack of a better term).

        If you have had any experience working on BBS software (like PHPBB, vBulletin, etc.) on a website, there are customizable admin settings where you can set the conditions of when a member's bar graph advances another notch. The same basic mechanism is used to render the member's status or "grade" on a forum, only the output is textual rather than graphical.

          I would say that it being based off likes wouldn't make sense to me either as so far I have recieved probably 100-150 likes if not more with no bar yet I have seen people with 30 comments and a few likes have several bars full. Unless there is a different factor I am missing.

          I can't hover over it though as on mobile.

            Anything is possible at this point.

            I am not sure what software they are using for rendering this website, and I have not played around with vBulletin yet, just PHPBB 3.

            And I am curious as to how you find out a member's total "likes" on these boards? - It seems that one's grand total of "likes" is what helps determine one's "reputation".

          That's what I thought too, but if so how is it determined?

            Here is an example of what I mean. This user has only 65 post. I went back and counted the likes total on all their comments which was about 10 TOTAL! Yet still they have two orange bars... It's really weird...

              Well, that's commitment I would say.

              Luckily I was able to easily search their comments and see likes on the same page.

            Forwarding this to one of the admins. Not much I can see when viewing your profile through the backend.

                I always thought it was based on likes for your reputation. Mine would keep going up with more likes, but it takes a lot of likes to fill it up.
                I've my account set to remember my pass and always have me logged in to save time! You've a 50/50 chance if I'm actually on or not.
                I can be bad about answering DMs because anxiety, bear with me.

                  As said above I have over 250post with over 100 likes with no bar while someone else has 10 likes Total and 70 post and has two bars. If it did have to do with likes it is in some very strange way.

                      These red pips beneath our usernames represent the user reputation power. Just as Pan correctly said, ZV reputation system is based on number
                      of Likes. The more Likes, the more red reputation meter bars show up. ZTHorse has given no information about how much reputation does each bar
                      represent, and/or how many Likes do we have to accumulate to get a bar.
