Thread: New reputation system

  1. #1

    Exclamation New reputation system

    Hi folks

    You may have seen a small grey/green bar under your username. This is MyBroadband’s new reputation system which we will trial for the next few months.

    To use the system:


    • If you find a post of value, click on the small black star below the post (next to the ‘report post’ triangle’
    • Leave a comment if you like (not needed) and hit the ‘add to reputation’ button



    We hope you find the new system of value.

    I find it almost completely pointless, if individual posts cannot be visibly 'thanked', as with any other forum just about, with a rep system.

    Is there a particular reason this functionality is not available?

    rpm, you are truly a glorious beacon of light.

    Also, is it possible to neg-rep?

    You already have people abusing it with the buddy system. A lot of people were against this majority from the poll last time. Personally I think by doing this it cheapens the site. At least the trolls can give each other nice green squares.

    Simply not built into the system. There is a plugin to do that, but we have had too many problems with unofficial plugins in the past...

    Frankly you might as well scrap it again then. As implemented the system adds absolutely nothing of value...

    Some appointed reps are grey. Why is it that some people can rep you but you don't get any points for it? (grey)

    It means that you do not have 10 reputation points yet. This should change after a few good posts
