    The person who repped you has zero rep power.

    So when he gets a rep power of 1,does my total reputation point count change or it won't change until someone else reps me?

    I think the rep points given doesn't change over time, so even if they were to gain some rep points later it still won't affect the original amount they given you at the time. A bit of a bummer but there is no need to feel down about it as Namaiki said, there are other ways to gain rep.

    Just continue to be helpful and hopefully you shall be rewarded with your efforts.

    IMO in many cases REP is meaningless, I have learned much from posters with with less than 100 posts and low rep. I have noticed people using rep as a sort of "mini' chat session, so if you are here for a while and become popular your rep can go to a high number quickly without really helping anyone.

    Rep is over-rated and is not usually indicative of one's helpfullness, but more so popularity.
