    Thanks.
    That's the "Reputation" indicator, apparently. https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/...ons_reputation briefly discusses it. You seem more reputable than the rest of us.

    When I park a cursor over yours, I get "will be famous soon enough". The rest of us (apart from Spryder's, which is disabled) have "is on a distinguished road".

      Thanks for that Ginger but itís as clear as mud to me. I have an iPad and when I touch on the indicator I get nothing.

        You won't with a touchscreen device, no, whether iOS or Android. I gave the cursor hover messages because you'd said earlier that you used a phone and an iPad, so I knew you'd not see them, and thought that they were mildly interesting.

        What that "Reputation" bar apparently shows is the result of some calculation involving the number of posts you've made compared to the number of "likes" you've received. You've got a couple likes in the Julia Wallace thread, which may be the cause of that. On the other hand, as you seem to be the only one with a non-default score, it may be that the system isn't fully operational yet. Regardless, more coloured boxes are better.
