User Reputation in its simplest form is a ranking of your user's benefit to your forum.
Its basis comes from the opinions of all of your forum users that choose take part in it.
Users gain and lose reputation based on how their posts are scored by other forum participants. Users with the ability to affect reputation, will either give or take aways points by approving or disapproving with a post's content.

All of the factors that affect a user's reputation score are found in the User Reputation section of the MANAGEMENT page and the TOOLS & SETTINGS page. Please view that section of the manual for more information on controlling how users are able to affect another user's reputation.

Basically, you can review anybody's post and give them a "positive" or negative" rating, as well as a short review, if you wish. You can't review the same persons post more than once unless you review 10 other people.

These are the settings I've got:

  • For every X number of days, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power - set at 365 days. ie. every year you are a member you get one extra point of reputation power.
  • For every X number of posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power - set at 1000.
  • For every X points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power - set at 100
  • How many posts must a user have before his reputation hits count on others - set at 50
  • How much reputation must a user have before his reputation hits count on others - set at 5 (the default reputation everybody starts with is 5 so your opinions count immediately)
  • How many reputation clicks can a user give over each 24 hour period? Administrators are exempt from this limit - set at 10
  • How many different users must you give reputation to before you can hit the same person again? Administrators are exempt from this limit - set at 10
As time goes on, the system may be tweaked, but please let us know how you like it...
Yes, it is starting now. Everything has a beginning and this is the beginning of the user reputation system. If you're just as helpful going forward, you have nothing to worry about.

As for whether it's a fair system? We think it is. It's a much better measure for our type of community. In the end, with or without the visual indicator, people have a reputation. It shouldn't be a contest like post count became.

We'll never please everyone, but this comes closest to the type of community we want to create.
