Searched in places (not too many admittedly) and I give up.
What does respect mean and how do you gain it? The one with a little + under your profile thing
I don't see a give respect button or anything alike.
Respect is the amount of "upvotes" (or downvotes- if negative- hopefully that will never happen
To give respect (or more commomly known as upvoting), you click the + button at the top a person's post (which is next to the negative sign)
Keep in mind that to get "+1" respect, you need 3 upvotes (to get you to 1.2 respect iirc)
Hope this sheds a little light and I'll leave it for someone else to find the respect/upvotes chart
