Topic: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

Like eBay. Like other message boards. Like life. You can get praise, you can get criticism. But, by making a game out of it, just like post counts and stars, your incentive is to raise your reputation up.

You can + and - others for any reason, but when you give them praise/smite, you and everyone else knows it's you plus you have to give a reason. If you give a point to someone (1 per person limit), they might return the favor as you post replies or start new topics.

You can also turn off the feature, so no one can rate you, but you can't rate others if you do so. (To do so, click "Profile" at the top, then click "Display" on the left, and note the new form at the bottom, "Display of reputation.")

Want to see what I'm talking about? I just gave props to "draco fett" for his topic on Boba Fett's theme music:
http://www.bobafett.com/boards/reputation.php?uid=17

We'll display who's got the highest reputation, plus who gives the most praise/smite.

Let the ratings begin. Be generous, be fair and be good. Enjoy.

And, as usual, please add feedback below. If it's good, let us know. If we've crossed the line, let us know, too.

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

I like this idea. It seems like fun, as long as no one abuses it or anything.

Just one question: Will the Negative points be shown as well?

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

Thylacine, good points. Negative points should subtract one from the total number, and on the detailed view, show the individual split.

I meant comments, not points. ^^;

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

Thylacine, no worries. Yes, all comments are shown if you click "reputation/karma" below someone's username. The number can be less than zero.

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

cool ive seen this on other forums before.

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

I like it big_smile  I hope I dont get too many minuses

Your god won't be there to save you, or maybe I will

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

Well that answer's todays question.

I like the idea, but I probably won't put it to much use.

I'll abdicate at the drop of a hat

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

I probably won't use it much either. I don't really care about it one way or the other.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

I don't mind it. I try not to screw things up and I try to add things in a positive manner. I just worry about it becoming a popularity contest because I never do well with those things. ( I was a geek even then.)

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

Or they really just don't like you.

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

Since it takes a little effort and there's a time delay on repeat "+" or "-" of someone, we'll see if anyone racks up a lot of negatives before either changing their approach or giving up all together.

Of course, if someone is spamming/flaming someone, that's a different case and we take those reports seriously.

Re: New Feature: Reputation/Karma points

If you look under each person's name you'll see a Reputation/Karma link. Hit the Green Plus box to add or the Red Minus box to take away. This will take you to a window where you can post a comment and then submit the point. Hope that helps wink
