Talking Suggestion Only

greetings TF

i have a suggestion in here... since we are posting for so many times here to gather useful information, why don't the Admin / Mods think about the pointing system.

once the member post a good one we will assign a points to him. Like Positive and Negative. So that there will be a ranking here...

How about that? just only a suggestions...

reputation points? Good in theory, bad in practice. The kids here would never be able to properly use it. They can't hanlde that kind of interactive system. They can hardly handle regular chat.

We've discussed this previously and the reputation system is a good system (not available with our version of vB). With the newer versions, it can be set up so that it's not easily abused (even though there's ones that would try).

It's still not out of the question, but may be awhile before instituted.

In the latest version of vB, you can set it up many different ways.

For example, here's some ways it can be used:
  • Only positive points given by the general membership.
  • Negative points only given by Mods/Admins.
  • The amount of points given in a day can be limited.
  • Member's reputation can give them more "giving" power.
  • Some members can be excluded from giving points.
  • Etc., there's lots of ways that it can be used.
One thing that I really like with the newest system is that Mods/Admins can give negative points and when/if a member hits a certain level with negative points, the system can be set up to do a temp or permanent ban.

As we move forward, this still might be something that we use.
