How find Lex ID for playing email games?
When you want to challenge someone to an email game you need to enter their Lex ID to enter in the New Game window. I know their name (from chat or the forums) but it is impossible to find their ID.
Clicking on their Profile will tell you about their "REPUTATION" and the number of their "PROFILE VIEWS" but nothing about their ID. Lexulous effectively has two different Profile pages.
A quick fix would be to add the Lex ID to this secondary Profile page.

@mistertoad A second page? Just for a profile? I dunno. Me thinks there has to be a reason for getting so detailed but "reputation" seems a bit much. Of course, the bottom line is for creators to make money; I understand that. But a second page for a profile? The least we know about each other, the better off we are. Keeps the peace.
@mistertoad Thank you for sharing this idea. We will forward this to our development team.

I think (I'll soon be told if I'm wrong LOL) that REPUTATION is just the total number of posts that a player has made.
I'm not going to say you're wrong... but I believe Reputation also includes (or included) boosted numbers for the number of times people have "upvoted" your Forum contributions. It also used to take away points every time another player clicked a thumbs-down on one's post; but that system could be (and was) abused, and it doesn't work that way any more. More to the point perhaps, Reputation is essentially a function of Forums and not of the game site itself. Unless I am missing something?
Your reply has the ring of truth!
I notice that you make any claim about whether the number of posts is included. After reading your post, methinks that REPUTATION is probably based on the number of upvotes alone.

@thatguythere202 D0wnvotes. OH, brother, do I remember those. I could not believe how stupid people were combating each other with virtual downvotes. Boggled my mind.
p.s. It was a chaotic time in America and UK, politically, if I remember. So there was that..
