reputation points

Postby dazzerjeep » Tue Dec 17, 2013 5:08 pm

Just a thought, have you ever thought about rep points as most other sites use them, I find that this encourages people to post more on sites and to go that little further to help others, I for one could have given several out to members for being so help full, I would like your views on this if possible.

Like a rating system?

I have seen them on other sites, and they do offer a better guide than just the sheer number of times somebody posts... Christian, what do you think?

I've tried adding such a mod. Let me know what you think.

For the time being, I haven't enabled the flood control, as I expect the average member here to be able to moderate the good/bad votes.

Can it look a little more... professional?

Maybe a button?

(but I like the basic functionality)

Changing the layout would complicate the system significantly, and potentially compromise security. It could be done, but it would have to be re-done every time the forum and the mod is changed.
