It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Yes, it will be interesting to see how it develops and/or how scores compare to my intuitions about the subjective reputations of other users.

Details of feature are available here.  Do we know the details of
Quote
Set the minimum posts needed to modify karma - The number of posts needed to have a "karma".
Set wait time in hours - The time between smites or applauds.
Restrict administrators to wait time - If administrators have to wait for the time above as well.

for the forums?  It would probably also be good early on to establish a social convention of treating these ratings seriously rather than just as a joke.  As long as the established user base does this the feature should retain some correlation to its intended purpose.

Should we upgrade to the Advanced Reputation System?

Identifi - Decentralized address book with trust ratings
I'm not a forum admin - please contact theymos instead.

I think you should upgrade to Xenforo.  Smiley

I do like the advanced system though.  OCN uses it, and it works very nicely.

If used fairly, I can see this being a great benefit.
Although I'm still not sure of the forum ranking system.
Ie newbie, jr member, etc.
I'm assuming it's based on post count? Rank increases every 50? Posts?

Hopefully the reputation system helps 'general' information

The problem is that many of the informative posts I've made are on other forums/in the past! I'll never get my reputation up now that I just lurk (hint: I do post, quite a bit even!)

I think either the advanced system or karmalog would be good so that abuse of the system can be identified.  Has anyone used a forum where this feature worked particularly well?  How was it configured and what was the social convention around it?

Edit: Leapfrogged you there, SgtSpike.  Sounds like a vote for the ARS!

One problem I see with this is that people who simply disagree on a subject will start giving each other negative karma and eventually it will invalidate the helpful post they make

I think this is one problem the advanced reputation system attempts to address--users who get in a negative karma war will end up invalidating their own ability to influence reputation.  Can someone who has used the system comment on the "softer" points of how it tends to work out socially?

What about some sort of peer vouching system or mods review of a member before he/she becomes eligible for the system?

The advance system sounds better, but what I'd really like to have is a system like the otc web of trust where you can rate a person from -10 to +10 and change those ratings without restriction.

Edit: Btw, is it possible to see who has applauded or smited you? If not, does that apply to mods/admins as well?

I'm not too crazy about the titles because "applaud" and "smite" don't really suggest intended uses. Perhaps, "helpful" and "unhelpful"? That way it would discourage negative ratings just because of differences of opinion.

How about "Congratulate" / "Fire into the sun with a large catapult"

But really, it'd be fine with me if there were no 'smite' option at all, just let people rack up the applause points.

I don't like these things. Posts should stand on content, not reputation. (This is why I prefer anonymous boards like 4chan.)

Don't think reputation based on if forum goers agree with you is useful.

Rather have reputation related to doing business.

How about "+" and "-"?
