reputation

The way the user reputation works is based on other users in the forum giving you reputations points. If a user really likes the content of your post then they can click on the reputation icon and approve of you post and leave a comment. They can also disapprove of your post and leave a comment and take away reputations points. The system administrator does not have anything to do with your reputation. It is given to you by other users.

searching members location

The only way to do a search for members and there location would be to go to the MEMBERSHIP LIST--> SEARCH MEMBERS--> ADVANCED SEARCH. Then once in there fill in the location block for the area you want to search.

The only downfall to this is that it all depends on how the person typed in their location. If they typed something like “Portland, Me.” and you type “Portland Maine” then it will not find it. It has to be exact. If they abbreviated there stat and you try to do a search for everyone in “Me” then it is going to find every with “me” in it line “meridian” and things of that nature. This is why I have the not when registering to type out the whole name of the stay and not to abbreviate it.
