 Hello  Folks,
 
 Introducing  The  User  Reputation  System.
 
 1.  INTRODUCTION
 
 
 
 First  of  all  what  is  this?  This  is  a  mod  for  phpbb  forum  which  gives  the  ability  to  your  users  to  give  reputations  (or  "thank  you"s)  to  each  others.  This  mod  works  simple.  If  you  want  to  thank  someone  for  a  post  you  can  do  this  in  two  clicks.  If  you  want  to  tell  someone  that  he  is  a  bad  user  with  a  bad  behaviour  you  can  do  this  in  two  clicks  as  well.  And  new  users  on  your  forum  will  know  who  is  a  good  reputated  user,  whose  words  are  weighing  something,  and  who  is  a  bad  user,  whose  words  and  deeds  are  not  recommended  to  you  by  the  others.
 
 2.  SIMPLE  EXPLANATION  OF  THE  SYSTEM
 
 Jane  has  a  reputation  of  10.  Mike  â€”  50.  If  Jane  gives  Mike  5  points,  Mike  will  get  5  points.  If  Mike  gives  Jane  5  points,  Jane  will  get  5.2  (Mike  is  more  reputated  so  his  givings  have  more  power).  But  the  bottom  line  of  the  whole  is  that  each  time  you  give,  each  time  you  lose.  You  lose  the  same  amount  as  you  give  (without  adding  your  power).  So  this  is  the  hard  earning  reputation  system.  You  can't  give  reputation  if  you  have  -10  points  (of  course)  or  less  than  1.
 
 
 
 If  Jane  wants  to  give  Mike  negative  reputation  (for  example  -5),  -5  points  will  be  subtracted  from  Mike's  reputation.  But  if  Mike  wants  to  give  Jane  negative  reputation  (for  example  -5),  -5.2  points  will  be  subtracted  from  Mike's  reputation  (again,  more  power  from  more  reputated  user).  And  again  when  you  give,  you  lose.
 
 3.  ADVANCED  EXPLANATION
 
 For  those  who  wants  to  know  exactly  how  this  system  works  i'll  explain  it  more  deeply.  We  have  5  stars:         and  one  for  the  negative  reputation:   (it  doesn't  matter  how  much  you  have  negative  reputation,  as  soon  as  you  move  subzero  you'll  get  this  red  star).  Each  star  assigned  in  admincp  to  the  exact  amount  of  reputation  points.  Default  values  are:
   200      100      50      10      1
 And  we  have  multiplication  constants  assigned  to  each  medal:
   1.4      1.3      1.2      1.1      1
 
 So,  for  example,  if  you  have  the  3rd  medal  (points  >  50)  your  constant  will  be  1.2.  Let's  take  again  Mike  and  Jane  but  with  different  initial  points.
 
 
 
 Mike  has  150  points,  Jane  â€”  25.  Mike  gives  Jane  +5  points.  He  loses  5  points  and  receives  bonus  points  for  givings  (default  value  is  0.05  for  each  given  point):  0.05  *  5.  And  Mike's  points  after  the  giving  will  be  145.25  (the  system  rounds  up  all  the  fractions  to  1  figure  after  the  decimal  point  but  in  the  database  all  is  saved  in  float  numbers).  So,  we'll  see  Mike's  points  as  145.3.  Jane  will  get  5  points  multiplicated  by  the  Mike's  constant  1.3.  So,  she  will  have  after  all  31.5.
 
 Now,  let's  see  if  Jane  gives  Mike  +5  points.  Mike  will  get  exactly  5  points.  Because  multiplication  constants  work  only  in  case  when  giver  has  more  points  than  receiver.  Smile  So,  Jane  will  lose  5  points  which  she  gave  and  will  receive  a  bonus  for  givings  (0.05  *  5).
 
 Please  note  that  on  IAH,  we  are  currently  setup  to  use  the  Advanced  Type  of  User  Reputation  System.
 
 I  hope  people  will  stop  Bumping  their  Post  Counts  from  now  on.  If  they  do,  negative  marks  are  always  there  !

 Hi  Madan,
 
 I  have  changed  only   iCGStation;  too  much  to  do  in  one  evening.  Too  many  files  to  edit.  Will  do  other  themes  with  next  few  days.

 We  are  getting  reps!!  A  nice  change,  Ravi  ,  but  I  am  a  little  vary  of  rep  systems.  Its  been  abused  in  a  number  of  boards  I  know.  Still  this  system  looks  a  bit  harder  to   abuse.
 Good  going  though.

 The  User  Reputation  system  is  up  and  running.
 
 Every  member  will  start  off  with  a  certain  minimum  number  of  points.  This  will  vary  from  member  to  member.  We  will  not  reveal  How  or  Why  a  person  has  started  off  with  what  points  he  has,  as  there  is  no  need  to  know  that.  These  Start  up  Points  are  not  assigned  arbitrarily  and  reflect  your  participation  on  IAH  so  far.
 
 You  may  be  starting  off  with  +  or  Zero  points.  The  moment  you  move  up  above  Zero  you  can  start  awarding  points  to  others.
 
 Do  remember  we  are  monitoring  the  system  very  closely,  and  if  a  cartel  is  formed  where  by  a  bunch  of  guys  go  around  awarding  points  to  each  other,  or  to  the  same  person,  repeatedly,  rest  assured  there  are  enough  controls  to  keep  these  cartels  at  sub-zero  for  ever.  Very Happy  
 
 You  may  award  a  Maximum  of  +3  or  -3  points  to  a  user,  the  system  works  from  there  on  as  per  the  Introduction  to  the  Reputation  System  posted  in  this  thread.

 Hover  the  mouse  over  the  Star/s  sign,  you'll  see  the  reputation  points.  
 
 Higher  the  Points,  bigger  the  star  and  better  the  Reputation.
 
 Following  for  Admins  and  Mods:  Below  the  stars  and  the  +/-  sign  you'll  see  "Votes:  Number"
 
 Admins  and  Mods  Click  on  the  "Votes"  to  see  who  has  awarded  whom  the  points  +  or  -ve.
 
 Unnecessary  awarding  or  deduction  of  points  solely  to  pump  up  the  points  total  or  bring  down  a  person  are  a  warning  sign  and  will  invite  censure.

 Deep  Blue  was  a  theme  developed  for  an  older  version  of  software  we  were  using  about  a  year  ago.
 
 It's  better  you  use  one  of  the  other  themes.

 BTW  before  someone  starts  bashing  this  system  Very Happy  :
 
 I  was  discussing  with  Ravi,  to  go  about  automatic  negative  points  for  posts  in  the  Buy/Sell/Exchange  and  LFS  announcements.
 
 That  way  people  who  do  not  participate  and  share  their  knowledge  in  the  discussions  on  IAH,  but  simply,  blindly  log  in  to  use  the  Buy/Sell/Exchange  and  LFS  Announcements  Forum  AND  people  who  post  "  PM  me  the  Price,  I've  PMed  You,  Check  your  PM"  etc  will  automatically  get  negative  points  for  each  post.
 
 It  will  not  be  a  huge  deduction  if  you  participate  on  IAH  regularly  and  use  the  above  two  forums  once  in  a  while,  it  will  not  be  felt  at  all.  If  not,  the  person  will  be  in  the  negative  forever.  Ofcourse  we  are  not  going  to  reveal  how  many  points  will  be  deducted  for  each  post.  It's  better  kept  that  way.
 
 Some  guys  thank  your  stars  that  this  will  not  be  with  retrospective  effect!
 
 BTW  some  more  needs  to  be  done  to  the  existing  system  and  then
 Ravi  has  to  reprogram,  for  the  above.
 
 Please  note  that  the  User  Reputation  System  is  not  about  how  Knowledgeable/Experienced/Educated  you  are  in  the  Whole  Wide  World  outside,  it  is  only  and  all  about  your  participation  and  contribution  within  the  IAH  Community.  
 
 I  have  drawn  up  some  more  ideas  from  the  thread  I  started  a  while  ago,  but  then  a  24  hrs  day  will  be  too  little  for  Ravi  to  fix  all  of  that  soon.  Very Happy.  All  of  these  originated  from  members  responses  and  it  is  not  something  the  Admins  have  introduced  on  their  own.  We  are  basically  trying  to  make  IAH  as  the  members  want  it  to  be.  Ravi  does  all  the  legwork!
   
 If  this  final  outcome  can  be  integrated  as  a  Voting  System  for  the  Photo  Competition  then  well  and  good,  We'll  also  use  it  as  a  Seller  Rating  System,  but  I  don't  think  it  is  possible.
 
 We'll  need  a  different  set  of  flexibles  for  that.
 
 As  Ravi  mentioned  during  Aquatika,  the  Gallery  will  be  integrated  with  IAH,  no  time  frame.
