What Are Reputation Points?

I am just curious, with regard to the csCart Forum, what are reputation points? For a long time I had zero, now I have one that says neutral. What does this mean?

I have wondered the same. It seems the more you post the more points you get.

Perhaps a cscart team member will comment.

Check buttons on the right side of each post. You can vote the post up and down. This affects reputation points. But it looks like they mean nothing on this forum.
