Re: Introducing User Reputation

Interesting new feature. Looks like people already make use of the system. Let's see how it looks in a couple of weeks.
One thing I noticed is, that regardless of the number of green dots everyone who got poitive feedback is already 'a diecast icon'. I left positive feedback for someone who had the status newbie and he immediately changed to 'diecast icon'.

Re: Introducing User Reputation

I just saw something... When you want to edit your post after submitting there's a button underneath that says "Vote now" instead of the former "Save". Has that changed intentionally.

EDIT: Strange! I just tried again and now it reads "Save". Don't know where that came from.

That is what I mean about modifying the levels. The default levels with new labels such as "diecast icon" were too low. They have been adjusted.

Limit has been moved down to 5 per day.

Thanks, now it makes more sense
Another question : When I look into my profile under 'latest reputation received', I see some with blue/grey dots in front and some with green dots. I'd think the green ones mean positive and the blue/grey ones negative feedback, but the comments behind the blue/grey ones are also positive

Re: Introducing User Reputation

I received negative feedback, for leaving other members negative feedback. How does this work, I have become scared to vent frustration in fear of the return attack. I must agree with Matt, even though this is a brilliant idea, some people just think "Oh, he left me negative feedback, so I'll do the same to him" What is more annoying is that the members that I believe have left me negative feedback are the people that have been abusing the forum and the reason this system was set up! I know I sound like a whingy little girl, but this is a major flaw, and has stopped me from expressing my opinions. I would like to think that the members in question would've had the maturity not to retaliate, but oh well!

I also can't help but think that some of the members who in all respect deserve "poor contributor" at the moment, have adopted little clicks with W900, thus making easier for them all to buff their mates up to "Diecast Iron". Defeating the purpose entirely!

On the other hand it is great to see the "Legends" of the forum racking up little green bars, Doc, Furry, Wahoo are finally getting some of the recognition they deserve!

I can fully understand your concern. It's almost the same as E-bay where one person leaves negative feedback then the other leaves negative even though they may have been happy with the sale or purchase. That has happened to me there. People need to learn that this is a trail and there will be bugs, no system is ever perfect.

Well, whoever they are, they obviously think it's a popularity contest. However, Jim as already said that it's not and should be seen as a way to improve

Yup, I usually only leave reps for two things, when someone brings up something really good (like a well worded reply or something awesome into a thread) or when someone posts something that wants to make me do a facepalm. Like for example, so far I have already given 3 members a rep because they brought up great points!

My fear is that some members will start to "Abuse" it to show their dislike for certain members, and my fear is that those "abusers" might be not highly credible people while the person they keep leaving negative rep for might be a great member, like Brian or doc. I think one way to help reduce the larger scale abuse is to force a comment of why they rated the post. That way, they would need a good reason to do so.

Though I would like to know, what is the color code for them, because I see there are 2 grey ones and 1 green one in mine.

You've brought up a decent point there. I mean, it doesn't matter who the person is, if we stuck with this system and for example of the more well known members said something out of turn, similar to what I have done in the past, I wouldn't hesistate to give them a negative rep. That's what this system is for. Not to show who's friends with who or who's more popular than who, but to voice one's opinion against or for a comment made by someone.

Re: Introducing User Reputation

Well. I really dont know why did I allready got a red bar I think it is ok to do it, BUT it would be more acceptable to do it if you said why are you giving me a "bad reputation". You know this way, you can also help the other person like saying, "I think you should not post comments without meaning anymore" So the one you are giving the bad reputation to, tries to improve the problem that the other members are pointing at. It really doesnt bother me but I just would like to know, why my new "bad reputation". I dont think that I am a member to compare with Lollo or B727 or hikouiki, but in my opinion I cant even get compared with a kid of 15 years old posting spam or comments that are out of topic all time.

I accidentally "disagreed" with one of his posts which was supposed to be positive..... Is there a way we can retract our selection to correct it???

Lucas is a good contributer.... And I am responsible for ruining his present ratings... I hope can edit..... Can such a feature be made similar to the edit function in the posts???

no, you are not responsible for ruining someones ratings and you can't retract your reputation rating.. Only I can reverse them, but to tell you the truth, I don't have time to go in do it. It's OK, they won't be banned if they get a little negative feedback.

Well, whether it be positive points or negative points added to my reputation it's a great idea.

Re: Introducing User Reputation

= reputation less than 0
= reputation 0
= reputation more than 0
For each 100 positive rep points you get an additional green image

As they say Hamish the cream my friend will always rise to the top. I wouldn't worry to much about the negative feedback, the proof as they say is in the reading. You can't keep everyone happy all the time. Most people will recognise a worthwhile contribution no matter what shape or form it's presented. I hope the days of the quick one liners and witty comments are not dead and also hope that members are not put off posting for fear of getting a negative feedback post.
This is a forum where everyone should post (using common sense and good manners) without thinking they are sitting an exam or fronting a selection panel everytime their fingers reach for the keyboard. Never fear mate, it's not a 'Rugby World Cup semi final'. . Ohh sorry shouldn't have said that....
