I was wondering if there is any correlation between content being liked and its ability to trend (the more likes and responses, the more of a platform it has)?

Also does the more likes per original content affect community ratings of an individual?

I can't speak to the back end processing from likes etc, but likes DO effect the users community rating. The more likes, the higher the rating.

To answer your first question regarding trending topics, a topic can become trending when it has attained a set amount of replies within a certain time frame. A like to a post does not influence whether or not a topic can become trending.

With regards to a members reputation, you nailed it. When someone "Likes" your content, you earn reputation.

Hopefully that answers your questions, if it doesn't or if you have any other questions just let me know :)

Thank you, so if you post content and no one likes the original post but people like the comments below your reputation is not improved by your contribution?

Correct - your reputation is only improved when content that you authored or created is liked directly.

What if someone posts a "confused" icon? Or a sad one?

@Ken S. or another question. How does someone earn a negative reputation, because I've seen that before?

Reputation is given for Like, Thanks and "Haha" reactions.

Negative reputations are disabled. There was a bug a while back that would allow for a negative reputation to be given, but we've since resolved that issue.

Might be worth bringing it back... there are still some "winners" floating around.
