I used to think I had a lot of rep and read a lot of stories in RR. Only to then realise his name is everywhere and he reads even more and has significantly more rep. He is also a Time Mage and is able to obtain the first comment on a surprisingly large number of chapters in popular stories. Always a bigger fish out there. Unless you are Zethuron. There is even an achievement with his name literally on it!

 Lol, I don't think it will take much effort. :D

Blue is the third tier colour, so level 12 you get style 2 (mostly-visible gem with some stone on it) and colour 3 (blue).

And so on.

Personally, I like styles 2 and 4 the best, and I miss my purple jewel, but alas. Progress marches only onward.

 Since the thread got resurrected, and I wasn't on the forum back then... I just wanted to echo the option that 2 and 4 are the best looking, and I seriously considered adding some message to every post (after reaching desired shape and colour, although colour is less important) asking for not giving rep to my posts. Of course, someone would do it anyway, but one can dream.

I actually like 3 and 5 the most.

Before the guide, there was this post! And a few comments on the same thing in some stories chapters, but those are harder to link and its the same information anyway...
msng Wrote: Sharing something I put in a comment of a chapter because someone asked (with some minor formatting changes for the forum):
Quote:1) Everyone can only ever give rep twice in a 24-hour period to any one person.
2) Rep levels determine how much times you can give rep in total within a 24-hour period (from rep level 21 onwards, otherwise your limit is 20).
3) Rep points (not levels) determine how much rep you can give at any one time:

Over 200 rep and you can give 2 rep
Over 500 rep and you can give 3 rep
Over 1,000 rep and you can give 4 rep
Over 5,000 rep and you can give 5 rep
Over 10,000 rep and you can give 6 rep
Source: Axolot kindly provided most of the information I used to list the rep points needed to give x amounts of rep. Occasionally you can find some quite useful information in the forums.
