Welcome to Librarium Online!
question about rep:
my "score"is 44 if i recall correctly, but it shows as...1?
or is the 1 showing underneath the green things under the avatar
something completely different?
thank you for your time
I think(and I may be wrong.)
Each bar counts as 100 rep and then you have another bar if you get over that. eg. a person with 421 rep has 5 bars because they have 4 100s and are working on the 5th 100.
The number is the amount of rep power you have(the amount of rep you give someone when you rep them.)
You give this rep by clicking the sheriff looking star under the post you want to rep.
I'm pretty sure sonoftheemperor has it right. You have your reputation points (the 44 your mentioned) and your rep power (1) which are somewhat related but also different
There's a bit about reputation in the LO FAQ, although I'm not sure if everything there is accurate. It's good enough to explain it all, though.
It will be 2 bars as soon as you get 101+rep
The number under it is a little harder to calculate, Its connected to how long you have been a member and how much rep you have.
Stolen straight from the FAQ, how rep power is calculated.
+1 power for every 30 days you have been registered
+1 power for every 500 posts you have
+1 power for every 100 reputation points you have.

I must say people dont actually use the system enough. When someone takes their time to answer your question or look up guides for you etc the least you can do is post a thankyou and/or rep them. Since I started using Lo again ive recieved rep once, and that was the only thank you I've recieved.
Sure I spend time looking things up for people because I like to help, but its hardly an effort to thank the person who helps you.
EDIT- For anyone who cares I would just like to point out that I was repped for the first time in 24 days, and it was on this post.
