I know I came acrossed somewhere that explained fame and apologize for posting this despite that fact. I currently can not seem to find that page anywhere. If someone could explain it here or post the proper link, it would be appreciated.
If by fame you mean the reputation system (the green dots), then you can read about it here: http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/faq.php?faq=reputation_faq#faq_rep1
That is one of the FAQs that you can access from the menu bar at the top of the page.
Thank you, the link was most helpful.
