Sorry to pester, but I dont understand it.
In my recently recieved rep, I have a green block and a purple/grey block.
What do they mean?

Rep points are what you get for making posts which are either informative, amusing, well-argued or interesting.


A green dot indicates that you were given positive reputation. A red dot indicates that you were given negative reputation. A grey dot indicates that the user gave you reputation, but it counted neither positive or negative.

Not all users rep points are equal. These are the factors that determine how many reputation points a user can give with each click: 1. For each year of membership (since join date) the users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power. 2. For every 1000 posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power. 3. For every 1000 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power. This all means that the members who have been here the longest, have the most points, or the best rep will have the most reputation-altering power!

Just repped the above poster for that. He's right.

If the rep is neutral, it means the person who gave it to you can't do it because they dont have enough rep to.

the post that is repped is linked
a person can leave a comment when they rep someone and often people will sign this with their name they dont have to, if they do then thats the only way you can know who it was who repped you.

This is the right idea but I dont think the details are correct. I think you get +1 rep power for more like every 50 rep points that you receive, its certainly a lot less than 1000

Yes that's right, or to put it another way the person tried to give you +rep but is not allowed to do so. It doesn't count badly against you, it was somebody trying to be nice to you!
