1)Rep Power is the number of Reputation points you give someone when you click the Rep button. It improves for a variety of reasons- length of membership, number of posts, Reputation you currently have etc

2)Poster Rank is the number of posts you've made in comparison to everyone else on the site
e.g Vaz has made 1,851 posts and his poster rank is #20
I've made 543 posts (544 with this one) and my poster rank is #106

3)The Arcade games aren't necessarily made by people on Heresy and as far I'm aware 40K/Fantasy based Free Games are fairly thin on the ground.

That's how many points you bestow when you give someone +rep
You take away half that figure (rounded down) when you give -rep

You get a pint of rep power for every 90 days of membership, every 500 posts, and every 100 points of rep you have. (My rep power is 24. As a bonus math question, about how long does that mean I've been a member? ;-) ). Only whole increments of 90 days, 500 posts and 100 rep count, but they are cumulative.

All that is is where you are out of our total member base in regards to post count. Basically that number represents how many people on the forum have more posts than you. I'm number 2, at least until I finish my master plan to kill off The Wraithlord...

Short answer: Because there aren't any.
Longer answer: Our arcade games come from a library of web-based games offered up for free use (or sometimes we have to buy them) and there simply aren't any available that are 40k/WFB-based.

Besides, sometimes you want a break from bolters and bretonians, and that's what penguin-tossing is for.

In theory you've been a member for 27 months but that can't be right surely as the site has only been running for about 26 months maximum?

How'd you get 27? He's been here since Dec 2006, so that's 1 month(approx.) and 2 years. A year is 12 months.

So 12(#of months) x 2(been here for two years) + 1(it's January, and he came in December, so an extra month) = 25!

You're off by two man .

it may have something to do with the amount of rep galahad has, and the amount he posts. he's a prolific poster and also has 600 rep, unless this is already factored in.

theres a guide to the way that rep works here, for those who may find it useful.

D'oh I just realised I didn't take into account the initial 1 Rep Power everyone starts with.

So it breaks down as follows for Galahad:

Initial Rep= 1 Rep Power
600+ Rep= 6 Rep Power
4500+ Posts= 9 Rep Power
24 months= 8 Rep Power

So come March Galahad will be up to 25 Rep Power (probably higher with the amount of posts he bangs out).

Wow, I did not think the rep was that high tech and had so much to it. Good food for though!

Gal's Rep power is truly Astronomical... Almost suffocated to death under it ()

That's higher than me Zond, but you have the advantage of time! Damn you Kronus!

Oh and;
