Reputation or rating

What is reputation and why did we do it?
Reputation or rating is made to assess the user's activity on our site.
Reputation is affected by voting for comments written by a registered user, as well as voting directly for a particular visitor in his profile.
In order to vote for a user, click on his nickname and a pop-up window will open, where you can raise or lower his rating.

Also, the rating increases when adding your articles on the site.

The higher your rank, the more you influence the rating of other visitors when evaluating their comments and voting for the user in his profile.
