    new feature - reputation

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    hey guys, just wanted to explain one of the new features that was built into our new board system since i'm not sure if a lot of people have picked up on it.

    we now have a reputation system, where you can give users points regarding whether you found their post helpful/good/interesting or not so much so. to do so, you're going to have to click the little scale icon () which appears in the top right corner of the red bar at the top of any post.

    here is what the forum FAQ has to say about it:

    Reputation

    What is reputation?

    Reputation is a way of rating users depending on the quality of their posts. If the administrators have enabled reputation, then the reputation icon will be visible in posts.

    Reputation may be positive , negative or neutral . Negative reputation may only be given if the administrator has enabled this. Neutral reputation is only given when the person giving reputation does not meet the criteria set by the administrator to affect someone else's reputation.

    How do I give reputation?

    To give reputation, click on the reputation icon in the relevant post. This will reveal a form to complete with the reputation type and the reason for giving the reputation. If negative reputation is disabled then it will not be displayed in this form. You may not give reputation for the same post twice.

    How do I know what reputation I have received?

    You can view the reputation that you have received in your User CP (User Control Panel) where it is displayed at the bottom of the User CP page. Here you will see the latest reputation that you have received and whether this is positive, negative or neutral. Your total reputation will be shown as series of reputation indicators in your posts and profile. The more positive your reputation, the more positive icons will be shown. The more negative your reputation the more negative icons will be shown.

    How much reputation is given? What is reputation power?

    If the administrator has enabled this, the amount of reputation that each user will give (or take away if negative) is shown in the user's posts as 'Reputation Power'. The value of the reputation power is determined by the administrator and may increase over time depending on the settings they have applied.

    What if I don't want anyone to see my reputation?

    You can disable the display of your reputation by going to your User CP and selecting Edit Options. On this page you will find a check box labelled 'Show Your Reputation Level'. Un-checking this box will remove the display of your reputation and replace it with the Reputation Disabled icon. You can still give and receive reputation while your reputation display is disabled.
    we hope that you like this new feature. please don't abuse it (i.e. giving your friends a ton of rep, or giving people you're not so friendly with negative rep) or we won't be happy.

    talk about any comments or questions you have about this feature here!

    I noticed this while checking out the member list, but didnt really get. At first i thought it was to see who was online.

    But yeah, its a good idea and lets hope this can allow the good members stand out.
    DAMN IT! That is such a good idea!

    Well so far all the reputation I've gotten was for actually helping people. So I don't think we should worry too much about people abusing it.

    it doesn't appear as an option; it's an information box that should be at the bottom of the main CP page, underneath any pending friend requests and your subscribed threads.

    Is it supposed to be in the "Miscellaneous" option?
    Because for me, there is nothing in the "Miscellaneous" box. :S

    No, its right on the User CP page. On the bottom of the subscribed threads, it says "Latest Reputation Received".

    Since you havent got any, probably theres nothing there.
    DAMN IT! That is such a good idea!

    yep, that's it, i think.

    i'm sure you'll be getting some in no time, though, Medokin, since your posts are usually so good.

    Correct, if you haven't received any reputation nothing will show up in your CP.

    Also, to highlight another fact, there are certain rules around reputation which are automatically enforeced, such as the amount of reputation you can give to each member, and how much per day. Also as your own reputation grows the reputation you give to others increases.

    These are all things that run quietly in the background so you don't need to worry about them too much - I just thought it might be useful to let you know that these things are going on to help prevent abuse of the system
