Maybe its because you have negative reputation points or 0 points to Affect Someone Else's Reputation ...just my guess

Yep, currently on -4 rep so unable to impact on anyone else's rep as a result

So should i be always above 0(Reputation) to add reputation, or is there any proportion thing going on?

well ... having a positive reputation comes from people acknowledging you have knowledge enough to be considered a 'plus'.
having a negative reputation can come from giving incorrect answer, spoon-feeding code, ...
it's a bit logical that if the community considers you as someone who (maybe) doesn't have the knowledge, that the system regards this as a hint that you may not be qualified to judge on other peoples posts.

commented: Thanks for that +0

All your negative rep seems to come from WaltP and all for the same reason. Read his feedback and take it to heart.

That said, everyone deserves a second chance, so you're now positive again.

Thank You very much. I will keep in mind all the feed-backs. The thing is that i do give a lot of reps (Off course if there is reason). And all i was able to contribute was 0s...
Thanks again. You are a life-saver....

I guess the reputation feature must have been removed, i have recently joined, in my honest opinion the feedback buttons really help in appreciating an honest and a post that adds value to the forums.. Mods please bring it back

I guess the reputation feature must have been removed

It wasn't removed, it just looks different. On every post you'll find an up and down arrow along with a counter. The counter is the number of people who have clicked the arrows to vote on a post (positive and negative votes correspond to up and down arrows, respectively). When you choose to vote on a post, you have the option of also giving reputation and including a comment, this is where you'll find the reputation feature now.

So rather than removing a feature, Daniweb added one. :) Votes are a way of saying you like or dislike a post without being forced to give out reputation, and reputation can still be given out if you also want to leave feedback in the form of a comment.
