Question What is that little box....

The one right under a members post count. Most are gray in color and some are green in color. When I put the mouse arrow on the gray color it says "so and so is an unknown quantity at this point" and the green color says "so and so is on a distinguished road". Whats that about? I tried searching the FAQ section but had no luck for an explanation. Did I miss a post concerning this? Just wondering. Thanks.

I'm an unknown quantity at this point... Is that a bad thing?

It's part of your reputation. We are still trying to figure it out.

I can give you points or warn you. I believe after so many points you are done for. Look-up "User Infraction"

Jones on vbulliten infractions are different from reputation points which is what the little box signifies.
Infraction is something that Chilly has to authorize and then as a moderator you can hit someone with it. It's used on some boards like FTE (where I am a moderator) you can give infractions which add up points and at certian level the person gets temp banned or if enough add up then perma ban. or you can hit them with a warning that just puts a note that can be read by other moderators to keep track of problem users but doesn't give any points towards being banned.
