    Default Guide: Reputation system v1.4.1

    So here is a guide to using the reputation system (online full site only):

    There are now new options below each post which are (listed from left to right) Thanks, Add to user's reputation and Report post. Each one has a specific function and can affect the user's rep differently:



    First off is thanks, with this function you have your name placed at the bottom of the post for all to see that you thanked it. It's useful if you want to join someone's cause and basically this functions as a petition of sorts. Using this system will add +2 rep points to the user. You can only give a max of 5 of these out per day, once you have reached your daily limit the Thanks button will be removed. *It is important to note that you can remove any thanks that you have given when using the thanks system:



    Second is adding to user's reputation or the approval and disapproval system. This system is anonymous and you can add to or remove from a user's rep (+ or -) without having your name displayed below the post, the user won't know you added/subtracted from them either:



    There are checks in place to ensure that you don't keep giving rep to the same users over and over, in other words you must spread the wealth, before you can +/- the same person again you must add/sub rep to 20 other users. There is also a limit of 5 of these every 24 hour period. *It is important to note that you cannot revoke anything when using the approve/disapprove system, nor double up on a single post:







    Finally, is the report post function, which is the red triangle icon located on the far right of the post utilities bar. This is reserved for spam, those annoying advertising messages and the all encompassing problematic post; examples include posts that are deemed as harassment, fighting or rude:



    In order to view your reputation status, reputation power and the 5 latest reputation(s) received click the "Settings" heading at the top hand right of the website or just click HERE. They will appear green (positive), grey (neutral) or red (negative). Giving a thanks adds +2 rep to user, adding to user's rep gives + user "reputation power", the grey neutral doesn't change the user's rep at all and negative is -1:



    Your personal statistics are displayed under "My Profile" which will display your Total Thanks; which is the amount of thanks that you have given, as well as your number of times thanked in how many posts:



    The newest addition to the rep system is ability to view the the latest rep that you have given (up to 5) as well as the reputation power number. This number is based on different values including length of account creation, forum rep, amount of rep given to others... and other aspects which shall remain shrouded in mystery as per the devs' intentions. This number is tied to the thumbs up function and will add the value listed to any player's rep; for instance the 37 that is my current rep power will add +37 points to any user I award with a thumbs up, which is substantially more than the +2 associated with the thanks function, it also allows you to keep your anonymity unlike the thanks feature.



    That concludes the road guide to the reputation system, I hope you learned something and use the system to its full potential.

    Thanks goes out to BodMaster, DanielRH, Kaarataka, Onaraasider, razerfingers, Samhayne for being being featured in this making of this thread and a special thanks to Ellyidol, RedRyder and Zeus.

    You can only see other's rep bar and estimate that their rep is between two integers, for instance I see you currently have 2 green rep bars so I would estimate that your rep is between 101 and 200. This is just my understanding of the system. If you look at the pics that I posted earlier I had 147 rep points which equated to 2 greens bars, now I have 256 rep which equals 3 green bars. With the knowledge I have I'd say that every 100 points equals a rep bar (in either direction).

    [UserName] razerfingers
    -101 to -???


    [UserName] is off the scale
    -?? to -100


    [UserName] can only hope to improve
    -?? to -?? rep points


    [UserName] has a little shameless behavior in the past
    -1 to -?? rep points


    [UserName] has disabled reputation
    Disabled rep points


    [UserName] is an unknown quantity at this point
    0 rep points


    [UserName] is a name known to all
    1 to 100 rep points


    [UserName] is a splendid one to behold
    101 to 200 rep points


    [UserName] is a splendid one to behold
    201 to 300 rep points


    [UserName] has a brilliant future
    301 to 400 rep points


    [UserName] has a brilliant future
    401 to 500 rep points


    [UserName] has a brilliant future
    501 to 600


    [UserName] has a reputation beyond repute
    601 to 700


    [UserName] has a reputation beyond repute

    1101 to 1300


    [UserName] has a reputation beyond repute
    1301 to 1500


    [UserName] has a reputation beyond repute

    ^^^^ wicked thanks for this....

    Nice guide. I missed this one. Added to my PL and SL Stuff lists.

    Couple of questions, is there a way to find out how much 'rep' others have? And I'm sure I saw a thread somewhere with amounts of 'rep' required for each green bar. Anyone know where that is?

    EDIT: Found the numbers for the titles and also found a list of the various green bars but the numbers looked wrong, maybe taken from a different forum.

    2nd EDIT: I was very tempted to sneak in something about how awesome Gluttony is, and how I (being Redbridge) idolize him... lol. But. Not sure he'd want that kind of public affection showered on him. Hehe. (JK)

    Just a minor thing, I belive it's 1-99, 100-199, 200-299, etc.

    I have exactly 400 right now with 4 bars.

    Hey glut, I told you already via PM but great guide! Very detailed and super informative as for your question regarding the grey/neutral posts those are awarded when a non senior forum member gives reputation to someone. From what I can tell it will award you a grey rep bar but give you no actual rep "points" and when you click on the thumbs up of the post that was given the rep by the non senior member it will tell you "the feedback on this post is somewhat positive" (or something like that). Hope this helps and you can add it to your thread


    +1 rep

    Edit: Ironically enough I just recurved a rep from a non senior member and I can confirm that it gives NO reputation when a non senior member gives reputation

    *it is important to note that even tho those +1 rep doesn't give points the thanks for non senior members DOES still add reputation. Hope this helps!





    You may also want to add into your guide that if you click the thumbs up on your own posts it tells you your feedback for that individual post.

    Nice explanation buddy! Iv been wondering about this one too.

    When I have had grey 'Rep' I thought that it was a negative not positive, though not seen in the feedback as negative. Great to know

    A related question: How many posts does one need to have in order to be able to give thanks and rep?

    I've been playing for close to a year now and have been a regular stalker on the forums since the anniversary. I'd like to be able to give thanks or rep, but I am unable to do so. I do not believe in padding a post count, but I will admit to submitting 6 entries into a couple of contests as of late to try and get my posts up so I can give thanks and rep while stalking the forums.

    I apologize if there is already a thread regarding my question, I did not have much luck with the search function.

    You can offer thanks at any forum lvl and u can even give reputation. Its just the thanks that will build a forum members green bar by adding points to thier rep tho. Any reputation given by a non-senior member will not award points. Only thing that you should take note of is the fact that non of this can be done through the forum app yet here are the new forum titles

    Good thing I looked around here or I would've wasted some people's time with the same exact question. Now I just need to reply to some forums so I don't have to be labeled as a new member...

    I do appreciate the help. I would have left you thanks at the time, but it was still not working properly for me. I am a FireFox user. I have been primarly a FireFox user dating back from the Netscape Navigator days. And for some reason, the Thanks feature does not work properly on FireFox as well. So I recently tried Explorer and am able to leave Thanks.

    Although I do not appreciate having to use Explorer to leave thanks, I will in order to give thanks to the posts that deserve it.

    Just an addition, after 6 bars it takes 200 instead of 100 points to the next bar! As well as from bar 7 to 8.
