    I believe Rep Power should be based off of the combination of Trophies and post count so if you’re very active and people rate you well then you’d have higher rep.
    And this way I’d be more obtainable to get the yellow rep.
    Because now most of them of the people with high rep have been here for years.
    On top of that even if you do really good in debates and are well liked it takes WAYYY too long for your rep to go up.

    That's already in effect, the current rep formula is;

    Join date only accounts for 1/4th of the total possibilities, trophies/which include trophies for ratings are included, so even newer members can catch up in those areas.

    Oh ok that’s reassuring.

    Because I feel intimidated by the yellow rep ppl because if I Gate negged I might turn red and I don’t wanna turn red.

    Also this is pretty awkward this is the third post in a row that you’re here.

    How much rep power do you need to go yellow?

    There isn't a single person to my knowledge that can get you down to red solo, and rep abuse also isn't allowed generally (one neg isn't abuse, multiple baseless ones from same person are though). Mainly just make good posts, and it'll go up.

    Rep points =/= Rep power

    You need 4.5mil rep points to get gold, but that doesn't directly correlate to having that much rep power. Since you get 1 rep power per 2000 rep points.

    Not sure these days, with vBulletin forum software it was simple enough to pull out a list, but that's not possible anymore on XF. Highest I've seen is around ~14k rep power.
