the only noobie question thread...

hey guys i know a lot of people are often embarrased to ask some noobie questions, thinking theyll be vicitimised by hundreds of flame posts. So ive decided to start my own noobile question thread:

To get the ball rolling here are some things ive been wondering about:

1. What does OSSN stand for?
2. How does one go about increasing one's 'Power' ?


OSNN.net Adventurer

1. OSNN stand for: The Operating System News Network (I think this says this on the front page somewhere)
2. To increase your power you need to add to peoples reputation (the little scales icon) when they help you or make you laugh etc… The more reputation you dish out the higher your power

So increase my rep for answering you and you should see your power increase ;)

to increse power:

It pops up a window.

Reputation level and reputation power are two completely different things that do led with each other, if that made any sense.

You gain power depending on how long you have been here, post count or reputation level. Power is the amount of reputation you can add (or remove... soon, maybe)

Reputation level is the culmination of these power shifts.
i realise that, but when i click on the [image]http://forum.osnn.net/images/buttons/reputation.gif[/image] icon nothing happens, the page just reloads.


I may actually be insane.
It opens a pop-up window... :rolleyes:

If you're utilising a pop-up blocker of some sort, then you will need to enable pop-ups for osnn.net if it's too sensitive.
no i dont have any pop-up blockers. it must be the JAVA, i cant use hotmail, when i click on the Inobx,Junk mail, or reply nothing happens...so it must be the java..
