Lowest to highest-

REACTIONS AND POINTS
You can mark someone’s post by clicking one of the reactions below it. Certain reactions will award the person a point while others will subtract.
INSIGHTFUL– This point should be given if someone enlightens you on something you didn’t know. Whether it’s new information or a new perspective- it increases the value of the conversation as a whole. Marking a post as insightful awards 1 forum point.
DISAGREE- Users that disagree with a post can give their opinion with this reaction. Since a disagreement is highly subjective, this reaction doesn’t promote or bury the post or give any points.
AGREE– Pretty self-explanatory. If you agree with someone’s post go ahead and agree. Agree is worth 1 point.
DISLIKE- General Disapproval. Maybe someone said something naughty or wasn’t adding to the conversation in a positive way. This is worth -1 point
LIKE- A like is also pretty simple. It means you liked a post and is worth 1 point.
LOL- We love laughter! It’s the best medic! Uhh medicine. Anyway, it’s always a positive thing-this reaction adds 1 point to a post’s score.
FLAG: ABUSE/REPORT- If someone is being abusive, going out of their way to swear and curse, insult or harass you- use this. Please do not use this function lightly it will be dealt with strictly. If you don’t like or agree with someone do NOT use this. If a person has posted something in the wrong section do NOT use this. False reports of this will result in your own account being looked at. Abuse will subtract 1 point from the user that was flagged, so they are worth -1 point.
FLAG:SPAM- Please report any spam with this reaction- this includes any form of advertising. This is -1 point.
