    This report covers installation, internal organization and algorithms of WikiRep, an environment for virtual communities with support for digital reputation. The first part is technical, it describes WikiRep installation procedure, briefly outlines source code structure, listing the most important functions, and provides details on how virtual reputations are stored in the database. Later part of the report covers WikiRep algorithms. Two approaches to defining quality of a digital reputation are analytically compared. The method employed for calculating adoption coefficients is described, with the proof that the coefficients are symmetric. Finally, the approach used to visualize value and quality of digital reputations is explained in detail.
