Manage Reputation Feature?

Manage Reputation Feature?

I was poking around, adding information to My Profile.  I clicked on "Display" and I see a box titled "Manage Reputation Feature."  The text says "You can disallow system of a reputation then nobody can change to your reputation. If you disallowed system of a reputation, you cannot change and view a reputation to other users."  I can guess what this is attempting to say, but it is incomprehensible to me, and I don't know whether "Yes" will disallow, or "No" will.

I would leave the default value "no"

@Will,  these darned validation characters are a pain in the a$$. I just lost an answer that I constructed because apparently I didn't notice a letter was capitalized.  :grrrrrrr:

@Mary, on some discussion forums (i.e., CyclingForums.com) members can earn "reputation points" depending on how well they answer questions--whether their responses are factual or not. These points can be given by members of the forum.

2013 mileage=12,169 miles;
2014 mileage=5,156 miles;
2015  mileage=6,200 miles;
2016 mileage=17,503 miles;

Janet Goldstein is the moderator of the forum and she has control over the requirement to use captcha.  It does not seem to be case sensitive.

I disagree. Sometimes it needs 3 or 4 tries.  This one pictured below failed and I had to reenter.  A pain to have to do a copy/save before each submit!

Thanks, but I know what a reputation is, and I got a sense of what the paragraph was trying to say.  But the paragraph sounds like Google translated it from a foreign language.  That was my point.

looks like a 9 to me.

I purposely typed the captcha incorrectly and my typed message did not disappear.

I'm willing to try suspending captcha provisionally (if, indeed, I do have that option), but if we start getting spam, I'd have to turn it back on.

Janet

Did we have a problem with spam on the Yahoo discussion list--that I was unaware of? 

If there a better chance, as far as you know, of getting span now?

I add my vote to those that hate the captcha.

thanks

We did have a problem with spam on BBCTalk, which is why I moderate so aggressively.
