A fool

It would be impossible to list all the many ways in which Religious Forums is unique, but one of them is those elusive things called frubals!

Have you ever hear the phrase 'instant karma'? Frubals (sometimes known as 'reputation') are are a very close equivalent. Let's say, for example, you see a post that you really like. You can validate that person by clicking on the little picture of scales that appears in the top right hand corner of that post. A pop-up message will come up, asking what you thought of the post and will have a blank space where you can write your thoughts on that post.

When the other member looks in the User Control Panel (User CP), they will see that you have given them frubals and be able to read the comment you have left them. This is a great way to let somebody know that you liked their post and you will soon discover the warm fuzzy feeling of receiving frubals yourself!

There are many terms used on the forums that denote giving someone frubals. Among them are "frubaling a post," "frubalizing someone," and "fruballed."

As our founder, Rex_Admin, has noted, there are a number of variables that determine how many frubals you give when you 'frubalize' a person. (And, of course, how many frubals you can give in one day.)

Register Date Factor:
For every 132 number of days, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

Post Count Factor:
For every 100 number of posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

Reputation Point Factor:
For every 250 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

Minimum Post Count:
How many posts must a user have before his reputation hits count on others? 50

Minimum Reputation Count:
How much reputation must a user have before his reputation hits count on others? 10

Daily Reputation Clicks Limit:
How many reputation clicks can a user give over each 24 hour period? Administrators are exempt from this limit. 10

Reputation User Spread:
How many different users must you give reputation to before you can hit the same person again? (Administrators are exempt from this limit.) 5
