    Question MORE Questions on Reputation

    We've discussed, and screamed, and yelled and attacked and asked about reputation. A brief recap:

    First, there are positive reputation points & ranks:
    ================================================== =

    1 dark green square = " is on a distinguished road " , 10 - 49 rep. points

    2 dark green squares = " will become famous soon enough ", 50 - 149 rep. points

    3 dark green squares = " has a spectacular aura about " , 150 - 249 rep. points

    4 dark green squares = " is a jewel in the rough " , 250 - 349 rep. points

    5 dark green squares = " is just really nice " , 350 - 449 rep. points

    5 dark green squares, 1 light green square = " is a glorious beacon of light " , 450 - 549 rep. points

    5 dark green squares, 2 light green squares = " is a name known to all ", 550 - 649 rep. points

    5 dark green squares, 3 light green squares = " is a spendid one to behold " , 650 - 999 rep. points

    5 dark green squares, 4 light green squares = " has much to be proud of " , 1000 - 1499 rep. points

    5 dark green squares, 5 light green squares = " has a brilliant future ", 1500 - 1999 rep. points

    5 dark green squares, 6 light green squares = " has a reputation beyond repute " , 2000+ rep. points

    ================================================== =
    ================================================== =

    Then there's the neutral zone:
    ================================================== =

    1 blue-grey square = " is an unknown quantity at this points " , 0 - 9 rep points

    ================================================== =
    ================================================== =

    Then comes the red (and eventually orange) boxes for negative reputation points:
    ================================================== =

    1 red square = " lurk-e-loo " , -9 to -1

    2 red squares = " has a little shameless behavior " , -49 to -10

    3 red squares = " can only hope to improve " , -99 to -50

    4 red squares = " is infamous around these parts" , -499 to -100

    5 red squares & worse = " bad beyond belief " , -500 or lower (automatically banned by vB software)

    Here at MiceChat, we believe in Self-Moderation. So, we've established the Reputation system to help us out. It works quite easily, in the fact that you can give points on any post.

    To give points on a post, click the button below that post, on the left. From here, a box will pop-up asking if you want to give negative or positive feedback. Select the option you want, and leave a comment, especially on negative reputation posts. Leaving a comment we explain to the user why you thought the post was not up to par. Note that the reputation system is not anonymous, in that any feedback that you leave can be seen by the user you send it too. You can check your recently received reputation by heading to your User CP. After you have left your reputation, click the "Add to Reputation" button, and you’re done!

    Now, it's a good time to explain how the reputation system points work. There are two types of reputation points:
    1. Reputation Level Points
    2. Reputation Power Points

    The reputation level points represent what level you are at. This can be seen by the green/red bars under your name in your profile, and on every post. The layout for the bars is that every represents up to 100 Reputation Level Points. Each stands for a total of up to 200 points. (Empty boxes are worth 0) You start with just 10 points.

    Reputation Power Points are what your 'clicks' are worth to another user (Giving Positive reputation adds your total Reputation Power Points, while negative reputation subtracts Reputation Level Points) You can't see this value. However, it's based upon 4 factors:

    1. Post Count - You will receive one Reputation Power Point for each 500 posts, and you need to give out at least 10 different users before giving out to a same user again.
    2. Registration Date - For every 30 days you have been registered, you will get 1 Reputation Power Point.
    3. Reputation Level Point Count - For every 100 Reputation Level Points you get 1 Reputation Power Point. You must have at least 10 Reputation Level Points in order for your 'clicks' to count.

    Now, what's all this for? Well, if a user has less than 0 Reputation Level Points then you can't post anywhere but the Litter Box. So try to get someone to give you some good rep, by posting a meaningful post in there.

    If you have -500 Reputation Level Points or more, you are automatically banned.

    Note that these rules are not set in stone, and any Administrator may change the banned/Litter User status.

    Have fun, and click away!
    Get it? Got it? Good. Now here's my question. When I arrived at MiceChat back in January, the highest number of rep, and I mean the mods, was Five Dark Green Squares and One Light Green Square. Now of course, they all have five dark green and six light green.

    So my question is thus: Will the reputation system continue to go up? The mods, and even regular folks like myself will continue to recieve rep, and their points will go higher and higher. Will the system still stop at 5DG 6LG? If so, I will be hard to tell if someone has 2000 points or 5000. And if it just keeps going up, then when does it stop? A year or two from now, will we be seeing rows and rows of glowing green boxes? And someone with that many points could have a lot of impact. If my Reputation Power Points were over 500, I could basically ban someone from the boards.

    Now, I am a firm supporter of the Reputation System. There are people who say it doesn't matter, but it does. I helps people know who they can trust. it gives people an outlet to let other people know if they especially like or dislike their contributions to the board. It also can help Admins; after all, maybe one day one of us regular members could become a mod (figment1986? ).

    Ok, now discuss, (mods?) but PLEASE, NO NAME CALLING OR BAD MOUTHING HERE! We have good, clean fun now, ya hear?

    I was going to send you a PM.....but you don't seem to have the PM thing happening...

    Another way to see how people rank is to click on the Members List and when the list comes up, click on Reputation and it will list people by how much Rep they have, starting with those who have the most.

    A little tricky someone taught me.

    Bad trick, bad! You figured that one because you're listed up there with the Mods and Admins. You are loved.

    But I must agree with Club 33... how will this change? New colors? Etc?
