Oh! I figured it would show the exact amount of rep. Maybe I like this better instead, then.The neutral message is up to ten points, I think. As you get more rep, the hover-message becomes more fawning. (It's still visible if you have positive rep at all, since then the rep square becomes green instead of gray; the messages are just calibrated differently.)
But the best recent thing is full stuff in bachuru, wow. It's taking a while to get used to having an actual image to click for quoting. thank you!
