    User reputation

    Lately, there have been some questions, issues, and incorrect use of the 'reputation' system, so I thought I'd clear a few things up.

    V-Buletin allows for reputation points among members. If you agree with a members post, and like what they have said, you may award them 'green'' reputation points. This is why you'll hear members say 'green sent.' The inverse - if you disagree with them, and do not like what they have said, you may take away reputation points, or give them 'red.'



    Here's where the confusion occurs. At the bottom left of every post are 2 boxes, one green, one red. You would think that the green box is for positive green points, and the red box is for the negative points, but this is not the case.

    The green box is for all reputation points, positive and negative. When you click the box, a little pop up will open and you'll have 2 choices, and the option to add a comment if you choose.

    To assign green points:



    Or if you disagree to assign red points:



    Clicking the red box does not assign red points, this reports the post to the RBW mod staff. Just like the bottom line in the window says.



    Recently many people have been trying to give red blobs and have been reporting posts to the staff. Which is fine, but many of you are not intending to do this.

    Lastly, some members have chosen to get into the red blob war, where they keep tossing negative points back and forth at each other. It is important to remember, that the amount of points awarded or taken away depends on the member issuing the points. DSix for example, (sadly) leads the the green list. If he gives you a green blob you get 150 points. And if he gives you a red blob, you'll loose 75. Verses a member who signed up yesterday - who gives and takes away 1 point at a time. Recently there was a war between 2 members throwing red blobs at each other. One has a weight of 75 and the other 9.

    If you are a member with low reputation points, and want to earn more weight in the game, the only thing I can say is go make more posts that people agree with.

    Re: User reputation

    Is there a way to see or calculate the amount of green/red points a user wields?

    That would suggest that you care, which would be sad :) LOL

    Tony - If I put some Kiss posters up in my bedroom will that increase my reputation?

    Yes and yes.

    The only reason I really mention it, is because many members are reporting the posts when they mean to give red infraction points, and it is confusing some of our staff. (cough, Eric.)

    No, only the admins can see this.

    Yes, your reputation goes up tenfold, but there is a stringent verification process to prove that you've actually hung the posters and intend to keep them there.

    By the way, those so inclined can disable their user reputation from being displayed in their control panel under 'edit options.'

    Of course I care. It could be a valuable commodity. Lets say you are haggling over the price of a snap clip. You could add something to the deal like..."ok I will pay 2.75 plus the shipping and give you a 100 pt green blob."



    P.S. these banana GIFs remain out of sync after repeated requests to have them fixed. (see now if I knew my reputation power I could add "don't make me give you a 78pt red blob if you don't fix them'")

    I think that makes them realistic...

    Yeah sure, more realistic dancing bananas. I would threaten you for your insolence but I don't know how many points my red blob inflicts.
