OK, so the bar represents how many votes for WATS I have recieved right?
It just baffles me and I'm curious. If you hold a cursor over it, it gives you a number. I dont think I would have that many votes for WATS, and I know i have had more applause points than that. Is it a meaningful number at all?

I would like to add my 2 cents......Several days ago, I noticed a familiar name in the 'recent applauds' list, but all I could recall of that member's posts were nit picks at wording or grammar of others. I even went in search of his recent posts, curious to see what he had said that merited an 'atta boy'. I'm still at a loss as to why, even after reading a doz of his recents.....?

Another example: If a mod noticed someone that goes out of their way to welcome new members all the time, they may get an applause for it. If linked, it would just be to the most recent instance of a welcome post not out of the ordinary at all, and you'd all think the mod had gone batty for applauding that.
