You can also add reputation points by clicking "Thumbs up!" on a persons post. If someone has helped you or you like their post for some reason. Thumbs up! them.

There is also the opposite option. Thumbs down! Thumbs down will take reputation points away. If someone is posting garbage and useless crap, use the thumbs down! Please use it sparingly as users lose too many rep points they will lose the ability to use some site features.
