Reputation points are given whenever someone excellent advice or help, or whenever you feel appropriate. To give them, you need to click on the scales under that persons name. HTH

Below your name, avatar, location, my tanks, etc... there are a few little icons. One is a light showing you are online, a scales for giving reputation and a triangle for reporting posts. If you click on the scales(libra), that is under the persons name you want to rep, a small box will open up asking if you want to give rep and also the option to leave a small message for why you are giving it. I hope that makes sense.

Here is a screen shot. I've circled the rep icon in red to help you locate it.

LOL I guess you don't need my pic now.
They only mean that someone thinks you are really helpful. It's just another way of saying thank you really, for helping out.

It's just a feature of the boards. You see the little green "lights" underneath your post count? These are representative of how many reputation points a user has. The intent is that users that are very helpful providing advice or help will obtain reputation, letting newcomers know that they're knowledgable and/or helpful.

I understood.
They only matter in that you are just saying thank you in another way. They don't do anything or gain you anything (except for little green boxes added under your post count). Rather they are important or not I suppose is a personal thing. I'm sure they are more important to some than others.
