I just turned on the Reputation Function to the boards. Theres a little scale icon in the top right of each post. Click on it to bring up the Karma form.

If the person posted something really good, helpful, raise their reputation.

If someone posted something that offends you, or is just not nice, you can lower their reputation.

Good people deserve to be recognized, and not so nice people need to be put in their place.

Thanks everyone, try not to abuse this system so I don't need to turn it off. Hopefully this will keep this forum a happy place.

this is good. not to be hurtful on this meaning, but this will eliminate all the nonsenses posting and arguments.

go to members list, and click the reputation button and it lists from most reps to smallest.

to veiw your own, just click your own rep button on any post and it tells you.

Thats heaps good, will be funny to see how much minus reputation i get. Can you do it to yourself?

*edit*
it says this post has no reputation points so i guess you can't do it to yourself.

But on a much better note i have 11 reputation points
:D

Ah. So this is what those little green dots were underneath the post count. I had noticed them earlier today, and just thought they indicated that someone was online...but it made no sense that everyone was online at the same time.

Cool. It looks like everyone has about equal karma right now. I suspect Ryan's karma bar will grow a lot after we get those stickers in the mail. :)

How do we check the comments left when someone gives us a + or - on the rep?

If you go to your User CP, you'll see your recent reputation ratings.

hey guys remember to add comments to your rep approvals/disapprovals. I got a few that are just blank, and I don't know if it was a A or D.

Just so people know if they should improve their attitudes or keep doing what they're doing

You are unable to leave a disapproval without leaving a comment. Which is smart. You don't want someone running around rating everyone's posts with disapprovals without some feedback right?

I think it's safe to assume everyone approved of your posts dude :D:D

Just wondering a few things about this karma thing:
What are the distinctions with the reputation? If you have more disapproves then you get a red dot instead of a green one? Do you gain more green bars if people give you +rep? How do you level up? Does your HP go up each time you gain a level? can we get weapons/upgrades? haha I'm just playing around because I just never heard of that kind of feature before.

at least now people won't be worrying about post counts as much now. i guess this'll encourage more people to contribute greater information here on the boards :D

I have seen this feature on other forums. I believe everyone starts with something like +10 reputation. Your green bar grows longer when you get more karma. I don't know what intervals Ryan set each block to, but I guess we'll know after someone gets more than one block. (May I recommend we experiment on Deach.) And if you're not very well liked, and your karma drops to 0 or negative, I believe your green block turns red. And for some forums, mods can warn members too...which gives you massive red blocks.

I wonder if Ryan enabled the mod warn-stick powers...

CP is Control Panel. Go to the top of this page. You'll see the ukulele Underground logo. A bit under that, you'll see the thread path. And below that you'll see the bar that says "User CP, FAQ, Members List, Calendar, New Posts, Search...etc."

User CP is what you want to click.

I myself can't find my own karma/reputation there, but I assume that's just because I don't have any yet.

I don't see any ratings, or space for ratings, is that because I haven't been rated yet? Can someone rate me (good or bad) so I can see where it shows up? Better yet visit my youtube page and THEN rate me. :D

Much obliged,

Kevin

hmmm it doesnt say who left the feedback though hahaha. one of the fishing forums i used to frequent actually showed who made the comment. good or bad. so everyone knew by whom they werent liked haha.

I just checked and it said that I have a score of 11.
Do we start out with a score already, or does that mean that I already got 11 ratings?
Anyone know?

Acabo'oe; it's my understanding that you start with 10, and go up/down from there.

NukeDOC; IMO, the 'votes' or whatever should remain anonymous (to joe-user, anyways) unless the person offering it elects to either reveal themself in the comments (or by some other means). If something I post is useful to somebody, I don't shivagit who it is, I'm just glad to help. The negative side might be a factor though if some fool decides to get abusive.

Lastly, I'm a firm believer in thanking and encouraging people who contribute, and there are lots of them here, which is why I dig this forum so much. BUT, it seems that there is a limit to how many rep votes I can deal out in a 24hr period, and whatever that limit is, I suspect it is set too low for the amount of contributors we have here, so can we increase this?? If so, maybe increase it quite a bit at least at temporarily as there are lots of existing threads that are deserving of rep votes, but as set now, I feel like I have to conserve my 'thanks' but there are many here that are worthy.

Anyways, I'm glad this feature has been added!

Have fun!

Looks like you gave me ten? Is each postive vote worth ten? Anyway, now I see it, Thanks!!

Each vote is worth +1 or -1. But we all started with 10. As MOK said. :D That way, we don't end up in the negative when someone gives us a disapproval rating.

There are also apparently gray reps. I have one of those. And what I think that is, is neutral, because I got repped twice on the same post. And I have 11 karma. So, as far as I know, gray reps aren't bad.

Nope I was wrong. Grey rep means you've received a rep + from someone who doesn't have any reputation yet. Just looked it up.

Can we get a color key of some sort? That would be most helpful.

Theres only 3 colors:

Green = + rep from someone with positive reputation
Blue/Grey = + rep from someone with no reputation yet
Red = - rep
