Grey means the person didn't have enough rep them-self to increase your rep points. So it is basically an "atta boy"

Oh thats kinda odd. How does the forum start off when nobody has any rep then ? Is it just from being here a while and posting loads of comments and the system gives you a point or two then you can dish out more rep and it bootstraps ?

When I got it right you need at least one point of rep given by somebody who already got some rep.
After your first point you can grant 1 point - each 100 points of rep and 100 posts the rep you're granting is increased by one.

Hope I got that so far.

Exactly - there are a bunch of things that build your rep, including the number of times you rep and the number of posts you make.

you need 10 rep to be able to give other points when you rep - you start by giving 1 point and as you get more rep yourself (and more posts) the rep you give increase :)

...including the number of times you rep...

Could you give further explanations on that?
Is the number of rep I can give increased by the overall amount of rep I spread?
Or do you mean the more often I rep the same person, the less rep I grant?

Couldn't find an answer on that in the FAQ.

Thanks a lot!

I might have been mistaken on that one... The FAQ only states:

Reputation is a way of praising someone for contributing to a community atmosphere and posting worthwhile posts and content.

Underneath each persons name when they post is a little icon that looks like scales . By clicking that you can give a user reputation points for that particular post. But there's some rules. You can't just go blindly handing out reputation unless you really think they deserve it. The term for giving reputation is called "repping" or "giving rep". Try it, I'm sure someones made a good post today and deserves credit!

This website has customized settings for reputation power, here's the basics.

Default reputation: all users start at 0
Register Date Factor: for every 360 days, user gains one point of rep factor
Post Count Factor: for every 1000 posts, user gains one point of rep factor
Rep Point Factor: for every 100 points of rep, user gains one point of rep factor
Min Post Count: user must have 30 posts before rep hits count on others
Min Rep Count: user must have 10 points of rep before rep hits count on others
Daily Rep Count: users can rep 10 times a day
Rep User Spread: you must rep 10 different users before repping the same user again
