    For each post you make you get "1" gold coin.
    For each thread you start you get "2" gold coins.

    Reputation points are given for informative posts or maybe as a welcoming gift, or if you make someones day with a little laughter.
    You can give rep points by clicking on the little blue box with the "check mark/X" in it at the top of each post frame on the right hand upper corner.
    Hope this helps!!!

    Here is the current explanation of the Gold Coins:

    Coins are currently used to enter contests that specify a required number of coins to enter. And coins are used when being donated by one member to another.

    Here is additional info on the coins.

    You get gold coins as follows:

    * For every post you make you get 1 gold coin.

    * For every thread you start under the appropriate topic of a forum you get 2 coins/

    * If you refer a new member you get 10 coins. (this may be adjusted in the future if the referred member does not log in or remain active after registering.)

    * If you write an article that gets published in the featured article section you get 100 Gold coins.

    * Gold coins may be donated to you by another member.

    * You may donate coins to another member.

    * With the above said, you should also know that if a member bumps posts up just to earn coins, that post will be removed as will the coin gained for that post.

    Also here are some reasons for donating coins. The reasons can range from someone wanting to help another member that is too short on coins for a contest get in the contest by donating coins to the member that is short. Or to help get a new member going more quickly.

    Some members donate coins to others as a way of a thank you for an exceptionally good post or some deed that person may have done.

    Another reason that you will see some members donate coins is for the benefit of the BOC/Sponsor relationships, meaning a member will offer some amount of coins to any other member that buys a specific sponsored product.

    Hope that helps!
