"Rep" is short for reputation. Reputation is a feature within the forum that allows members to acknowledge other members for leaving posts that are beneficial to the forum and it's membership as a whole.

. Do note however that the button mentioned in that thread is from the old platform, and since we're on the new platform, the new button is located next to the "Multi" and "Quote" buttons below a user's post. You won't see it in this thread as reputation cannot be granted in New Members and other Off Topic related forums.

That is incorrect, actually. Buying in the Marketplace requires 0
rep. However, Selling, Appraisals, Freebies, and Wanted all have a reputation requirement.
You can further read about the requirements of each here
