Does the "My settings: Latest reputation received" show 100% of ALL reputation points and reputation comments someone got since they joined city-data.com?

Or does it show only show a certain amount and has a limit to the number of reputation points received that it shows?

Well, the latest reputation received shows the latest reputation received. I'm sorry but...

I think the question might be about reputation comments rather than reputation points. Those do drop off eventually; I don't know what the capacity is, but the oldest rep comment I have is from December 2010, even though I've been around here (and getting rep comments) much, much longer than that.

The points, though, stay with you permanently. Or at least nowadays they do - a few years back, it used to be possible for members to give out negative reps that did take points away, but that function has been gone for a long time now.

Not precisely. The "latest rep" will show up in your profile everything that was done via the scales icon. Look at your own page: if someone decided to leave the comment box empty, it will still show there, the points only with no comment. The [+] link actions, OTOH, don't show anywhere except your rep total.

Really? I'm surprised by that. I thought the points that came from the [+] link showed up in comments as "Quick-reputation" if they were from a logged-in member, or else in the "Latest Reputation Received From Guests" part of my user control panel if they came from someone not logged in. Interesting; I learned something new today.

I'm also intrigued by what you seem to imply that all the rep comments I've gotten are still out there somewhere. Where are they hiding? Is there another page hidden somewhere? I've never been able to see more than a few months' worth at a time.

No, you're right and I'm wrong about the quick reputation, I'm sorry.

But I implied that all your reputation POINTS are still there: you can see them as the number total of your points. The comments are also stored but can only be accessed via the mod panel.

I am glad to see you are back on city-data!

Yeah, I know that feature shows the most recent reputation received.

But does it also show 100% of all the reputation points/comments I got in my city-data account history since I joined city-data? Or does it show only a specific certain amount of reputation points/comments in my city-data account history?

Also, I know the actual reputation points always stay. I am referring instead to the content of the reputation points such as which posts/threads of mine I got the reputation points for, the website links to them, and also the reputation points where I got rep comments.

It does show 100% of your history until it's too long to fit in there. I don't know the cutting point: 80 positions? 100? Someone with a lot of rep can count it for you.

Yes, the points, the comments and the links can be accessed by moderators indefinitely.

I have counted 310 reputation points and their content in the "My Settings: Latest reputation received" section for my city-data account.

Since I have 813 points total I assume that maybe it holds up to 310 reputation points. But maybe it can hold more than that.

I like that feature a lot with the reputation points, a section where it shows the history of all rep points, which posts someone get the reputation points for, all the rep comments, and the website links to the posts where people get rep points.

Do bear in mind that some of the reputation comments you've received were likely worth more than a single point; as members here gain reputation and post count, their "rep power" (the number of reps they can deliver at a time) increases as well. So it's possible that you may be seeing all the comments you've gotten, just that some of them came with more points than others.
