What is the promotion system?
On the 25th of May 2010 we saw a new user ranking system introduced on the forum called the "Promotion System". This system is much more advanced than the previous system where users advance to new usergroups and gain a few extra features for their account.
What is the purpose of the Promotion System?
The purpose of this system is so that users posts more frequently on the forum but also break the forum rules less so that they don't lose their account due to banning and having to start from the bottom of the promotion system again.

For each rank, you have to go through 4 stars before advancing to the next rank. Obviously it gets harder to gain more stars as you advance through the groups to keep it challenging for older members with lots of posts. Here are the stars in order:
Bonus Reputation Points
As well as gaining extra stars and features with the promotion system, we also like to reward you with bonus reputation points for the posts that you make. For example, for every 2500 posts you make as a platinum member, you gain 25 reputation points added to your total! This system is entirely automated, so if you notice your total increase for seemingly no reason, this is why
To change your usertitle you must be a Habbox VIP or Donator.
Donators can change their usertitles by going to their User Control Panel and then Edit Profile (or click here).
VIP's can request their usertitle to have HTML in it - you can do this by clicking here if you are VIP.
Normal members without VIP or Donator will have a post-based usertitle (see Promotions System).
Please note staff members must have their job clear in their usertitle at all times

Reputation is something that enables other members to see what other people have rated you. How well a member is rated is shown with green or red blocks. A new member starts with 50 reputation points.
Reputation is split into 2 different categories: Positive and Negative.
People give out positive reputation for such things as:
When you do something bad you will most likely receive -Rep. You may receive a -Rep for the following reasons:
When you receive a -Rep, it takes half of the persons reputation power from your total reputation points. For example, if someone had 10 rep power, you would lose 5 reputation points if they gave you a -Rep.
Sometimes negative reputation can be unfair, if you feel this is the case then you can report it in this forum.
Giving reputation is quite simple, you simply click the star-like figure at the bottom of someone's post (this varies between skins), you can then select either "I Approve" or "I Disapprove" - you must then leave your comment, which is basically what you think about the post. Then click submit!
You can see your reputation level by clicking on User CP. Only VIP users can see who issued them reputation, but all normal users can still see reputation comments. Remember Green blocks add to your reputation, Red Blocks deduct from it.
Reputation Power (Rep Power) is that amount of points that you can take or give to someone's reputation. Your rep power increases by 1 point for every:
In your User Control Panel you are able to disable other members from viewing your reputation level (note: even when disabled Administrators can still view!). To disable your reputation you can do the following:
What are those green blocks under my profile information?
Those blocks show the amount of reputation you have. There are 4 different coloured reputation blocks.
In addition to coloured blocks, Reputation is also seperated into various ranks based upon how many points you currently have. Here is a list of them, along with their point values:
