How do you check who you received rep points from?

It showed before the meltdown we had a few days ago.

Points which you received during that time period of these one, two weeks which got lost then, are also lost.

Points which you received before and which you receive now should appear in your user cp...

If you could read them already but now no longer, then your status was reset after the HDD crash because you lost membership time, posts, and reputation points. I reenabled it.

I was going to make a new thread on rep points but I'll just do it here.

I think the reasons people give rep points are as varied as there are people. Initially (like 6-12 months ago), I only gave points to intelligent posts. And I rarely gave them to anybody. Lately, I've been going to the bottom of the list and giving them to people who have little or none. Sort of raising them out of oblivion. If you're in the top 10, especially if you have 1000+ points, I won't give reps points irrespective of posts. Just see no point to it. In the past, if anybody ever gave me negative points, I'd search through that person's posts and find one I could give them negative points on. I never got negative points from them again.

I think, as of today, I'm going to start giving negative points to everyone. That doesn't mean I'll be giving negative points to good posts. I suggest everyone do the same. Rate every post if you want. This way, it's based less on favoritism. It's more honest, more realistic, more dynamic.

So you read the message in the negative points I gave you. :D Some members are easier to give to than others. Nordhammer and Frans are two that are difficult. Not due to favoritism but just difficult to find posts that are worthy of negative points. I'll be keeping a close eye on them. :hitler

Maybe I will start giving negative rep to the j o o lovers though.

Thursday, March 18th, 2004, 06:33 PM
I tend to only give good rep for posts that make me laugh or that i agree with. I will give good rep to people who don't like me if they make a good post or one that makes me smile. :)

I tend to give bad rep to posts that i find totally out of order - but i don't really give them that much.

By the way, why do some reputation points increase ur rep by like 20 points, but others only increase it by 9 or under? :confused

Demigorgona
Thursday, March 18th, 2004, 06:52 PM
It goes by if you are a moderator or not, or admin or not ... how many posts you have --> 1000 posts = 1 more rep point you can give, how long you have been on --> 1 year = 1 rep point you can give and how many green dots you have --> 1 green dot = 1 rep point you can give.

I only give Rep points to either very informative posts, to ones which are especially significant to me, or ones I strongly agree with.

I have never given negative points as I don't see the point. If I don't like a post, I either reply to it and debate it or I just ignore it if I can't be bothered.
If people have recieved rep points because others have really enjoyed their post, I don't think I have any right deducting it from them whether I believe I have good cause or just on a whim.

Negative rep points exist for a reason. No? Otherwise, there'd be no choice. Only postive points -- no other choice.

Anyway, I've given negative points to several people but only a few have given them to me. They gave them mostly out of spite because I gave them some or because they don't like me personally and not because of what I posted.

Yeah, of course they exist for anyone who wants to deduct points from others for whatever reason, I just meant that I personally never consider doing so. I don't feel inclined to do so just because the option exists.
It's up to you to do so if you wish, cosmo.

Most people will feel inclined to "return the favour" if you give them negative rep points, I've considered it myself in the past but decided to rise above it instead ;)

Back in the early days, I thought the reputation thing should be done away with. Even when I was at the top of the list, I still said it should be done away with. I still think that.

I think the thing is rigged anyway. You have more green marks, you're reps are worth more, you have more posts, your reps are worth more. Why should getting points from a new member be worth one point, while getting points from someone like myself, is worth 35, or whatever.

Well, perhaps it is worth taking up with Njord if you feel that it is unfair. I can only guess that a veteran's rep point is worth more because it is assumed that they are valued poster who's opinion carries some weight, as well as being simply a perk of being a vet.

To be honest, I don't pay much attention to the whole rep point system. It is nice to occasionally recieve a rep point with a message from someone saying why they enjoyed your post, other than that it is pretty meaningless.

If you would prefer to see it done away with, it might be worth your while creating a poll to see how others feel

Fairness? There are double standards at this board. That is a not a secret. Njord gave Edric a bunch of rep points arbitrarily. It wasn't until me and Loki said something that they were removed. I've been around longer than most at this board. I have more posts than any other member. That is of no consequence. As an Super Mod/Adm I was possibly more active than all the others. There are threads getting off topic but they are never split. There are posts that say nothing but "delete" and are not getting deleted. Yet, I was removed as Adm. and even banned. Marla on the other hand has done little as a Mod. Yet, she is a Super Mod. It's favoritism. Pure and simple.

I have no influence at this board.

I'm sorry you are still nursing grieviances, cosmo.
I was not aware of the situation with Njord giving Edric reputations points, I guess Njord would be the only person qualified to answer that. In saying that, I guess it's upto him whom he decides to give points to at the end of the day. Is this the reasoning behind your current desire to dish out negative rep points arbitrarily?

I'm also sorry you are no longer an Admin, but that wasn't my call I'm afraid. As for your claim to have been the most active member of staff out of everyone else, there is no practical way to verify that, so I'll take your word for it.

I see evidence of the mods and supermods editing posts and threads daily, but if you feel there are some which have gone un-noticed, please link them and I'll sort them out.

At the end of the day, however, this is Njord's site and it's his perogative to do as he pleases. I don't always agree with Njord about everything (actually can't think of anything off the top of my head ;) ) but I have found him to be almost always impeccable in his objectiveness and fairness. Perhaps you do have a genuine reason to bear a grudge, but I'm afraid there is little to be done about that unless at some point Njord decides to re-shuffle the staff and include you again.

My friendly advice is not to get so hung-up about it.
There are obviously people here that value your presence and input, and ultimately isn't that more important than having a nice title and being able to edit some posts?

This was the basis of my 2 unscheduled threads into Free Speech about 10 days ago;( (I love smilies;) )!!:smilies

I believe that if one likes what someone sez....well, give points, if you wish:D!
And if you disagree, well, are we all suppose to agree:| :| :| :-O ....to what & to whom????????????????:|:-O :-O :-O

Does this then institute a hierarchy through which, if you agree, fine, but if you disagree with some who are quick to negate you, well, maybe instead of arguing/dicussing, well, you are dissed:( ;( :( ;( -- and too bad for you:(??

That is counterproductive, it seems to me, to open discussion, since an opinion, which may be off the wall to some, is framed by some as unimportant, and to be disregarded/downgraded/negated by this backhanded method:~(

Well, I, for one, believe that everyone's opinion is important -- in fact, I know that some of my views are cockeyed to some, but to me, well -- I like them, and will keep them until I have challenged/tested them, and see that revision is in order.
When I was younger, I was resolute in my ideas to the point that I thought that those that disagreed with me bordered on heretical -- how could they do this; after all, I am correct!!! LOL:D

A few years, and a little wisdom have led me to the conclusion that this was wrong, and that it is important to hear everyone's views -- since the only 'truths' that we really know, are that the sun rises & sets, the moon & stars are in the night sky, and things like these. Everything else can be seen from many views!:)

Over at Stormfront it means the person who gives the points hasn't made enough posts to be able to change your reputation. The gems therefore appear gray and have no effect on your score. I suppose it works the same way here.

I you add to someone's reputation you add as many points as your reputation power indicates. If you substract from someone's reputation, you substract half of your reputation power (rounded.)

Your reputation power is calculated by the time you have been a member, by your number of posts, as well as the number of your current reputation points.

You must keep a very close eye on your rep points because I just gave them to you now. I recognize and appreciate fully your defense of me. Didn't appreciate the stated comment.

And I may also state that I came to your defense in other places which you can not read.

Indeed, but I have been overruled, reprimanded and even humiliated by many before, even by fellow mods and friends alike...
which I didn't appreciate at all, but that's no reason to give negative points around, ...if you catch me saying a faux pas, chat with me about it so we can discuss it over or PM your disapproval to me, I may correct my phrase...and sorry if you didn't saw through my sarcastic wit, after all dont we all go through a emotional and existential crisis, whatever age we have?
How many times haven't I moaned and whined all the way through in some threads where the problem of relationships were debated, bringing on stage often the most personal dramatic events to light...

I also got negative points from Magilla, but lost only one point. :D

If you lost 30 points then "someone" has been messing with my rep power. My positive points are currently worth only around 12. Negative rep points are half positive points.

Vaudeville.
This farce has gone through too long, either one shuns someone, ban him or keep a stiff upper lip and go on which what really matters.

Meanwhile Medist forces infiltrate our threads, are contra-productive, pull us moderators a leg and some our best contrubuters are mocked at, humiliated and talked down to in the smuttiest of languages and generally work as agent provocateurs just to ruin our Forum and see it going into smithereens but all we do is dedicating one, two, three threads on the Cosmocreator file.

Kick Hellenic Eagle, Medhammer, Amar, etc..out and keep moderated Cosmo in, at least he has made some resounding and informative threads.
Sure, he should stop whining and being petulant, but it's his midlife crisis playing parts with him...we will suffer one day the same sense of desorientation and exaperation, so brace yourself already

"w"= everyone, and yes I laughed it off...well, germanics laugh right in the face of death and despair, because how hard we are shaken and battered by cruel twists and turns in life, we dont yield, we might be killed but wont lie down.

It outweighs the times that people actually receive some appraisal from you, in fact, I always thought you dealed negative points only in retaliation if they gave you some.

Well, your UserCP states how many you have. Otherwise, the only thing I can do is add that option to the postbit. I had not planned on doing that. The only reason mine shows up in the statistics hack is because I have the highest number. Otherwise, if you go to the memberlist > advanced search > reputation points > descending order, you can who has more than others, but not the exact amount.

I don't understand how the reputation point system works. My rep reaches 100 and every approval I give, the poster gets 2 points. And then someone with a 8,000 reputation approves one of my posts and it goes up 7 points. But then a number of people with 500 - 1000 reputation points approve and I only gt 1 single point each time. Very confusing.

Could someone please verify for me how this works?

Aeternitas
Tuesday, August 2nd, 2005, 03:12 AM
This happens because reputation altering power doesn't only depend on the donor's reputation points.
It is also directly linked to his number of posts and to how long he's been a member here.

anonymaus
Thursday, September 1st, 2005, 08:05 PM
As the forum grows, so does one's reputation--both at the forum and strictly in numbers. Unfortunately, the Reputation numbers are out-growing the entire forum, and just about everybody's reputation. Many people simply do not give Reputation anymore, because it causes an imbalance between their intent - i.e. a nice comment and some positive reinforcement - and what actually happens: their Reputation increases vastly, in cases of new members exponentially. The extreme amount of Rep Power many of the older members of tNP have is causing an inappropriate amount of Rep Power for new members or those who previously had little to no Reputation; also, and most importantly, it is having a negative effect on the general purpose of the Reputation system.

The Rep Power modifier has been changed to fix the imbalance. The new requirement for each Rep Power Point is 300 Reputation.

This will reduce one's Rep Power to approximately 1/3rd of what it previously was, with the lowest possible number being 1.

There may be more changes coming to the Reputation system in the future, when more options are available. Feel free to cheer/jeer as you please ;)

Another way to balance what has all ready been imbalanced and circumvent future corruption is too allow a third option when giving reputation points contra the binary feature now +[+] i.e. of either [++] or [--]. The third option will be [+-] which give zero point, but can be used as a neutralised and practical messaging system, which is the most common use of the reputation function anyhow. This is of course just a thought, so feel obligated to criticise or approve as seen fitting. Thanks for your attention.

This is more of a question than a complaint. I trust that I have put this at the correct place.

Is my memory faulty?
I remember receiving points for my recent posts:

Scientists remove Hunley's rear hatch: http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=66977

Scent of father checks daughter’s maturity: http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=66908


These reputaion points have now been removed. I am curious if there is a problem.

Also, even though these were posted yesterday, I am still getting that my last time visted was: "You last visited: 3 Days Ago at 22:36".

Is there a problem?

Thank you for your help.

After a forum software update, ago 2 days, it has get some troubles with the counter and trough maintenance work the reputations had need a reset. So some peoples had lost a lot of points. Because the most was angry about this, I had tried to get them back and the reverted points are getting back now, but the points from yesterday are gone with this way, that's include visit time. But the peoples, which had give points to you in these posts can give you again.

Excuse the annoyance :)

all my other reputation points are green but someone gave me a gray reputation poin, he made a good comment about my post so it can be a negative gray point. Why does it has that color?? :|

Grey would suggest that the member you got your rep. point from is a fresh member, a junior. They can't hand out 'real' rep. points, but they can make an approving statement by giving you a dummy rep. point.

In the afternoon of January 5, 2007 I had 400 rep points on my account. When I logged in on January 7, 2007, I had only 392 rep points left on my account. How is that possible?

Ok I love Skadi, but is there a function that tells me that I have recieved new points?( without going into the user cp) On BuB forums when you log in it welcomes me and tells me how many posts since my last visit,just like Skadi. But it also tells me of any new reputation points I have, with a direct link. Does Skadi have this facility?:thumbup

Yes, it's possible. The feature has been added, so you should be able to see your older rep points.
The given reputation points are already displayable, if you scroll down in your user cp. ;)

I.E. To add there, for anyone desiring to know why it is goverened differently to The Althing: it is back to 365/2500/2500 because that is how it had been set here on Skadi for a wee while. IMO It is also a bit fairer that way, with the old database included too, to have such large thresholds, otherwise it could quickly become inflationary, I seem to remember that my reputation power on BuB was 92 because one gained it at 365/1000/100... :-O

If members overall believed that there needed to be an amendment it could of course be brought up and rediscussed, but since there had never been much arguing over the 365/2500/2500 threshold on Skadi, before one would open that possible can of worms, I'd remind them that the current system had been in place for a while and had a good 5 years to mature and hence is a fair enough system that almost equally rewards perseverance, activity and quality of posting.

If the question is whether we use the reputation, yes we indeed do. I know some forums that have disabled it on purpose, but we are not one of them. We are proud to have it since times I can't even remember. It's not been uncontroversial at all times, but overall the general agreement is that the rep system has more upsides than downsides. :P

You get them by writing posts which the membership considers so good that they be rewarded with reputation, or so funny that they be rewarded with a "LOL!" or sth. Of course it's always at the discretion of the reading poster as to whether he is going to give out rep for a certain post. So if being "rep-king" is your goal, it needs to be reflected in the quality of your posts. ;)

To give them out yourself, you click the little button with the scales at the left bottom of each post's postbit. The level of reputation, time since registration and post count all play a part to how many points you can give out for each time of "repping someone", this also explains why sometimes a poster gives you four points, but another time you get seven. :)

But I can't rep anyone. I don't see scales under people's screen names. Are new members not allowed to give rep?

Also are you sure new members can get rep? I've made 20+ posts not even one rep point. I usually get reped at least once if I make that many posts.

New members are able to receive reputation points, but can only give others reputation once they are off moderation. I have just given you a test reputation point. It went through because I can see it in my control panel. So if you haven't received any others, it probably means that no one has given you reputation so far. The explanation could be that you are still fairly new, so give it some time.

I think you have to be a funding member. Once you have donated they will highlight your name in red.
You will also be able to turn your name off so that it cannot be seen in the 'Currently Active Users' box on the home page.

This should be added maybe to the rep-info page too, quite complicated to find this info on page 11 only :P

I also have another question, when one mouseovers over the green squares, it says "user is a sage", "user's judgement is sought by kings", etc, it would be interesting to also know at what level it says what. Is there somewhere such an info? Thanks in advance :)

In my opinion quantitative ranges for rep. ball pop-ups are better all around. There's nothing vague about ranges, they're completely objective, and they dispense with the 'entertainment' value of said pop-ups; because after one has seen them all once or twice they're no longer entertaining anyway. The rep. numbers/figures speak plainly for themselves, which is all that is necessary for users and eliminates the scratching of heads and confusion.

This is what I've done in the vBull. (4) version of Germanic Folk along with attaching class labels (I forget precisely how many labels, but there are a bunch of them) to each programmed rep. range. Off the top of my head, this is about as good as it gets within the standard vBull. rep. system(s) to behold a user's rep. number/figure at any given 'snapshot' in time. The only remedy/remedies for this is to install some add-on hack/hacks.

Moreover, I advocate fora use (esp. new ones) across the board (pun not intended ;) ) one rep. pt. only bestowals and deductions per user and regardless of a user's 'status'; but it's massively too late for that now herein this Forum. This helps prevent rep. pt. levels from becoming unnecessarily astronomical.

Additionally, methinks user rep. numbers/figures should be displayed in the Index page Stats-box ("Top x") in lieu of the 'Top Posters' list/column; because rep. levels are far more indicative of a user's quality as a participant rather than, for example, some joker submitting some 5,000 or more worthless or near worthless one-liners resulting in him or her being given 'recognition' for it/this by the software in the Stats-box. At least generally speaking with r. pts. users usually have to 'work!' for them. This doesn't apply, though, to good-looking Skadite-chix (hahaha) :wsg ...

...my several 'cents worth' here. :D

Reputation power progression is fairly conservative here, too, but naturally this means that people who have all of long membership, high reputation and high post count, will give out a lot of reputation points.

In my case this is 1 (starter) + 3 (over 7500 posts) + 9 (over 22500 rep) + 10 (years since registration) = 23 reputation points each time I rep someone, and it's not impossible this will rise to 25 before the year is out (11 years on Oct 8; 10,000 posts).

[I believe this may well be the highest measure of naturally-gained reputation power on the forum for any active member - well, behind FJ's 26 and BW's 24, ahead of Ae.'s 22].

Sure, this makes it somewhat inflationary, especially since everyone who's been here pre-2012 will already have an extra four points of rep power simply for registering before the forum went down.

But it's still a more realistic scale than on some other forums where people gain 1 point of rep power with every 100 rep points they gain and/or every 100 posts they gain. People there at some point often give out reputation and through one point distribute up to 500 points of reputation, which is of course ridiculous. :P

There should definitely be some update of the reputation system. Like more categories added or switching the reputation power off and leaving it to one point per reputation is a good idea too. Most longterm members have over 5000 reputation points.

I don't know about replacing top posters with top reputation. There's already top thanks and I think that's a better indicator of quality than reputation points.

Thanks is quicker and easier to give away than reputation; you don't have to write a message. Since it's handy I think more people use thanks for a post than reputation. Just look at the average post with 5-10 thanks. I wonder if just as many people gave it reputation points. Does the administration have some statistics on that?

Reputation is often used for short messaging because it's quicker than a PM.
