I tried to give Terez some rep, and found that the only option available is "I approve." (Which I did, but still...)

I find this amusing, but is reputation even turned on? It would be nice to have the ability to give negative rep to...er...certain posters.

I've been trying to talk Tam into allowing neg rep for a while now...good luck. :p I think I just convinced him to allow Younglings to rep though...

hmm....your rep showed up as neutral rep rather than green rep. I think that's because you don't have any rep power yet. Tam's test rep showed up as green.

I think we should fix it to display rep in each post, too. There's no point in having the system activated if you can't see it. Well, you still see your rep messages - that's cool - but the numbers in the posts would be nice too. It's a fun game, even with neg rep activated (in my experience, it's rarely used, even though you can give it anonymously). :D

Elitist rep barely ever works. I've had experience with the system on other boards, and unless you give all options to everyone, it falls apart pretty quickly.

I'd like to rep...

thanks for your work on behalf of us Younglings terez!

How come I can't see my own rep? What is going on here?!

if you go into user CP it's underneath your subscribed threads.

Terez
05-27-2008, 04:05 PM
Because Tam can't figure out how to make it show in the posts. Yet. :D

I found it. It's not where I was expecting it to be....but that makes it more interesting.

Terez

I only have 12 points, though...according to the thing...and brood says he's got 29. That's messed up, since I'm the only one that's repped him!

:) @ crispy for some random reason that I don't know...

actually, rep is right below your post count....

hmmm... "Sarevok is on a distinguished road" ...

:p

hmmmm....I don't see it! Maybe it's a setting in user CP somewhere...

Oh, you're talking about the green squares. I'm talking about this (example):

hover over the little green block and the alternate text for the image will show you your rep status, but no explicit definition (rep power = 30) yet here in this forum

Terez
05-27-2008, 04:21 PM
Yes, I know. At Malazan, mine says "Rep-Whore". :p

It's a little red (or possibly green, in extreme cases) box. If you float your cursor over it, then it gives a comment like "Terez is on a distinguished road". That is probably inaccurate: driving and posting shouldn't be combined. Much safer to do it from inside your home, or something like that.

All you farts need to look at my example. ^^^^ :p

@Gonzo - maybe terez is not driving and posting... maybe she's posting while tied to the roof of a car? Or... maybe she's posting after she out on the side of that distinguished road? hahaha:D

That's great.

You don't need much to be on a distinguished road; I just joined and I'm crusing on it! :D

Hiding offline Terez? Very naughty.

And why does Illy get the screenshot? No fair :p


I definitely got 29 rep now, and only terez has repped me, which means I started on 17...
The rep power system here seems very odd - it's a point every ten posts, as far as I can work out.


I sympathise with Tam for having to try and sort this out on the AdminCP though - vBulletin is, if you'll excuse my french, $^^!%$%!"$"$%!"$^!$^!"$%!%^% for admins and mods :(

I learned that trick from you. :p

Because I had taken that screenshot already and it was already in my Photobucket. Then I had to take another one to show the Rep-Whore thing. :D

That makes no sense though. If you started on 17, then why do I only have 12 altogether? I've gotten rep from Tam, and it's green, so it must have been worth something...I also got neutral rep from Crispy.

You had 90-odd posts at the point... so 9 points from that, two from register date (at one per year), and 1 from your rep score.

Maybe?

Terez

Why worry about reputation? Why even care about it at all?

Terez

Because it's a fun game. Crispy and Brood and I have played it at another forum (obviously) and we like it. :p

In theory it's a good way to tell who contributes most to a forum - the idea being that valuable and well-thought out posts will recieve rep.

In reality, it's a popularity contest ;)

Terez
05-28-2008, 12:54 PM
I think it's a good way to let someone know what you thought about their post without spamming. :)

I think it has good and bad points. At the other forum, you can get shiteloads of rep for posting a funny pic, but only occasionally for posting thoughtful discussion. I guess it's the nature of a forum.

At the same time, it does exactly what Terez says--let's you express appreciation for a post without posting yourself, or PMing.

Part of me wants to see if we can limit rep to discussion forums, rather than the Non-Wot, even if that means I won't get any. :p

Terez
05-28-2008, 02:23 PM
Well, that would make sense if our Non board was like the Inn, but it isn't - we have serious discussions on Non as well.

And...

Funny sentiment there considering what you repped me for. :p

I'm not expressing a sentiment about it. It is what it is at Malazanworld.

Sure, but you said it as if it were a bad thing, or as if you expected it to be different here. :p Humor is good...
