Karma Replaced with "Reputation"
« on: October 07, 2009, 07:27:10 AM »
Alrighty, so we've changed the smite/applaud to more of a post-rating system.

You'll notice in the member information to the left of every post is a heart icon. Clicking this will allow you to give positive or negative feedback for a post or thread. This change also allows mods and admins to see who's been giving +/- feedback to individuals so it can be adjusted and abuse can be dealt with. Yes, that means you Jutes.

Anyway, it might need a bit of tweaking so please feel free to let us know what you think!

Thanks Jer! I think this should be a huge improvement! The only downside I can see is that it puts more work on the mods. I have faith in you guys!

Perhaps I'm blind but I don't see any heart icon Jer.

I also agree that this is a better choice for member rating. Hopefully members will use it with prudence.

Killer idea from the mods!   :D Much nicer than the smite system.  More accountability, etc.  If somebody's reputation is dropping the mods can let them know the kind of posts that are responsible so they can stop the behavior, right?

Then it can be a great teaching tool to help stop people cluttering the boards with garbage/nuisance posts.

Thanks for the work getting this sorted out!

Thanks Jer.  ever since I was robbed of my perfect Karma life just hasn't seemed worth living.

Sorry, this is incorrect. It does retain your previous karma but the karma levels are at 100 point intervals. Each action (positive or negative) now gives 3 points.

If anyone wants their karma set to zero let me know.

Interesting

ADDITION: If you click the heart 'accidentally', there is no option to back out of giving reputation (no X to close it, no Cancel).  The only way to close that little window is to leave the thread and come back.

Aw hah, its reset to 0 yet im already looked down apon? Off to a good start (This is my first post)

Actually, had you read the entire thread, I made a correction that it didn't reset. It took a combination of positive and negative karma, assigned a total reputation value to it and then applied that to the new system.

Additionally, since it's just a popup applet you can continue doing whatever you want and it will go away on the next link clicked.

Ah you're right. Ok, my mistake.
I just read the first post(s) by you, assuming you'd update those ones with the required information.


*edit*
i like how it shows a history of your reputation changes! This is fantastic.

History?

Go into your Profile.  theres a View Reputation, which keeps history - but only since the change went into effect. I'll +1 you to test it if you'd like.  (Actually i have to wait 56mins - i just +1'd someone else).

Does it show who's left reputation points for you or just the actions that you take?

The downside with the applaud/smite feature transferring over to this new feature is that some of us will be "looked down upon" for a long time.  I know it's all up to me.

But someone like GrantC isnt really looked down upon but he's labelled as that as well.

It would be nice to see positive and negative reputation, not just an average IMO.

It shows  the reasoning, Who it went to and who it came from.

So:

Topic
<Post that caused the reputation change>
date
<date it was given>
Comment
<Info typed in by reputer here>
To
Who it was to
From
Who it was from.


To just says your name, and from says who did it.

This is exactly why I made the offer of resetting to zero. Clean slate.
