    Post Reputation / Comment System

    Reputation / Comments System
    Some of you may already have been aware of the new reputation system that has been implemented by the administrators to the forums.

    The core objective: Members to reward and recognise quality content contributors through a post-rank system.

    At the top left of every user profile you will see a new reputation rating icon:

    Clicking on the "Add to reputation" icon ( ) allows you to provide reputation for that user's post. Clicking the icon allows you to post a comment and state whether you approve or disapprove. This will then be publicly available for everyone to see and will appear directly underneath the post as a comment. A box titled "Comments on this post" will appear, with a list of users who agree/disagree.

    All full users have a certain reputation power. This depends on the number of posts they have, the reputation they have received themselves and how long they have been a member etc. When you approve of a post, you increase the poster's reputation by the number of reputation points you have. If you disagree with their post, their reputation points will decrease by the number of reputation points you have.

    Simply put, the ranking / mathematical algorithm behind relies on a balance of current scores you have, v.s. the number of days you have been in the forum, which takes into account the number of rankings you have as well. The formula is to prevent any form of abuse and members who think they can help their own friends reputation by artificially "ranking" them.

    Some of the influential factors to determine reputation points:

    Register Date Factor - longer registered = more power
    Post Count Factor - more posts = more power
    Reputation Point Factor - more reputation points = more power
    and about 7 other important factors.

    The comments you make will only be visible to the poster in their user control panel.

    Every time you agree or disagree with a post, your comment will appear in their user control panel. Each comment will either have a green icon (to show that the user agreed with your post), a red icon (to show that the user disagreed with your post) or a grey icon (where the user has no reputation power).

    Everyone starts with 10 points and one green icon associated with their profile. As they gain (or lose) points, their total increases or decreases and the number of green icons next to their profile changes. The more green icons there are, the more the user is respected in the forum.

    For example:

    simply means, the poster has provided quality content based on his post.

    You can find out your current reputation level from your Control Panel. If you scroll to the bottom, you will see a "Latest Reputation Received" section, where you can find out your current reputation level and view the most recent comments posted about you. If you have not had anyone give you a post reputation comment, you will not be able to see this option.

    If you have recieved a good (green) rating, keep up the good work.

    If you have recieved a bad (red) rating, revise and see how you can improve on your future posts. Remember, it's an on-going effort which has no end-date.

    If you have recieved a grey rating, it means that someone has rated your post, but has not enough reputation points to do so.

    Re: Reputation / Comment System

    This type of rep system had been used on many other forums which I frequent, and let me share my cts for admin's consideration.

    I have seen examples where things get out of hand, because:
    1. People gang up to up/down the rep pts of others who they deem 'friend' or 'enemy'. Childish n silly.
    2. There are people who engage in u-scratch-my-back-and-i'll scratch yours kind of practice. ie A up B, B up C, Cup D..and so on. or 'heh can u up the rep pts of my friend XXX, and I will up yrs in return in future.
    3. Some people wanted their pts level to be attained and maintained at certain levels, eg. 33, 88, 69[huh],66[sxx sxx]. In doing so they ask buddies to up/down their pts or silicit from other readers.
    4. people mark the pts down, w/o leaving a reason/comment why the post had been disagreed. becomes like a stab in the back thing. No value adding n also creates resentment, n discourages people from speaking their mind.

    There are more examples I ve seen. I personally dont like this type of rep system but since the admins had chosen to go with this route, I can respect the good intensions but I just want to say it could potentially get out of hand. I hope BMW forum will not end up like some other forums where such a system had created a lot of unhappiness.

    to me the rep points are not important at all n I wouldnt use it as a guage to judge the person making post.
    ANG MO KIO AND TANJONG PAGAR MRT STATIONS INSTALLING "TRAFFIC LIGHTS" INSIDE THE STATIONS. Red Light means train delays expected.

    If I still want to wait and board the train and walk through the red light, will I kena 12 demerit points for 'beating red light'?

    This reminds me of some sammyboy forum thingy. On every thread's last line, bros are asking each other to up their points.

    So bros, up my points can?

    not so sure if this is a nice system to have as what beng has said, which i tend to agree with in principle. i thot this forum alr has a very good system in place - "Report This Post" where several forummers have been red-carded.
