I'm still not content with that answer. It's too vague. Is there any kind of mathematical way of explaining it?

Current reputation power is the amount of reputation members give to another user I believe (though it seems to be working funky for admins right now, I've given more rep than anyone here lol).

I'm working on finding the exact mathematical formula now, you have me curious. ;)

The other green dot thing is unrelated, that's how much positive or negative reputation points others have given you by clicking on the +/- button in a person's posts.

One thing I did learn...

If someone has an altering power of 36.

Giving out positive rep, they give 36 points.

Giving out negative rep, they give out 18 points.

Reputation Power is influenced by things such as Reputation points, post count, register date too...

I guess it's also subject to change negatively seeing as mine went back down to 0.

That's what I thought rep power was, but wasn't too sure.
