Just noticed a rep meter under my name....what is that for? How does it change?
Cool. Like a said in another post, the people on this board are for the most part different than other forums that I attend so it may work out.I am counting on people to be honest when giving out Rep points. I will be monitoring it to spot any pranksters going around giving people negative rep pts for kicks. Hopefully it works as intended, for the betterment of the community.
Good Question. Saint by the Bay set up the levels for the Rep feature and off hand I don't know the ranges or levels. I am sure that if someone is getting consistently negative feedback it will draw our attention and cause me to take a hard look at the member in question. I really don't like banning passionate Saints Fans. I actually hate doing so, but anyone that is an obvious detriment to the community won't last anyway.Yea Andrus, many of the other unmentionable groups that I belong to have done the rep. ratings and they've worked out great.
Will ppl get banned for an ultra negative rep and what about some sort of super fan status for others with extremely high reps?
Well, I am unsure if this rep system is setup the same as on other boards that I am a part of, but if that is the case, then rep from someone with low rep is less valuable than rep from someone with tons of rep. This eliminates the newbs and low rep people from going on a neg-rep crusade.Hmmmm...this should be interesting.
Pros - The system will be nice to get positive feedback for a good post.
The system will reward those who post frequently
The system will curb frivilous posting or unwarranted criticism.
Cons - The system may curb someone from being honest for fear of retribution from a fellow member.
The system will allow newcomers and others who don't value forum reputation to sabotage the system.
Just some preliminary thoughts. Will be fun to see how this works out!
Thats great, now we can keep a tab on those negative post people who no matter how optomistic a fan is on this board have to come in and rain on everybodys parade and call it there opinion.People can give you positive and negative reputation based on what you post. If they like it, they will probably give you positive reputation. It they don't, you'll get negatives sometimes. Sometimes you may not get any at all. You can do the same to other people 10 times a day. Its that little button under your name with the check and the X.
