    Below are the standard comments for reputation levels that came built into vB. I don't know how relevant they are to our focus, so I thought I'd come up with replacements. Thing is, I came up empty. So it's on you all. I just don't know if I'd keep posting if something on my profile was calling me a "glorious beacon of light"...

    User is infamous around these parts
    User can only hope to improve
    User has a little shameless behaviour in the past
    User is an unknown quantity at this point <-- starting value
    User is on a distinguished road
    User will become famous soon enough
    User has a spectacular aura about
    User is a jewel in the rough
    User is just really nice
    User is a glorious beacon of light
    User is a name known to all
    User is a splendid one to behold
    User has much to be proud of
    User has a brilliant future
    User has a reputation beyond repute

    I don't understand the rep points... however I gave you a bad rep to see what would happen, and nothing happened.. I will give you two good rep points to make up for the one bad rep point I gave you....

    How does the whole thing work?

    I think the top of the mountain should be Tresselesque. You can then work around from there, like maybe Maurice Clarett's posse as the lowest

    Your reputation level is actually a numerical value. It starts at 10, and goes up or down a point amount that depends on who is giving (or taking away) points. I haven't quite figured out what those increments are, but it may also depend on what their own reputation level is.

    Anyway, when your point total crosses certain thresholds you hit new reputation titles. Which are what I pasted above. The defaults (line them up with the list above) are as such;


    So basically, when you tried giving me negative rep, it lowered my numerical value, but not below the 25 line, so I kept my "distinguished path" title. Your value must be between 50 and 150, and that gives you both a new title, and a second little bullet thingy next to rep.

    It's all pretty new to me too. :wink:

    How many people do you have to give props to in order to be able to give another person more props? It will not let me give you more props, C...

    I think it's limited per post. So I could give you positive rep in one post once. If I wanted to do it again, I'd have to do it on another post.

    So once per I'm guessing.

    Which means I'm stuck with a negative rep ding forever! You bastard! lol, it's all fine. I'm having a really hard time not going around and giving people negative feedback just to mess with them. Instead I can, well, see below.

    I also just discovered User Notes which is something completely different, and possibly more fun. You can post notes on other people's profiles. They (unless they're an admin) can't see what the notes say. So you could comment on Bucknutty, then everyone but Bucknutty could see that comment right on his profile page.

    The possibilities are both comical, and a little scary.

    Killer idea Clarity. So when others on the board are reading posts, they can click on his "reputation" to see if he is full of shit or not. This board is killer.

    It's one better than that, they can click on their profile to see specifically what people like or don't like about them. But yeah, reputation is right in front on every post. If the greater population doesn't think much of someone's postings, everyone will know.

    I wondered about that at first, especially for someone like Tibor. But I think we'd find that there are nearly as many people who like his posts (whether or not they agree) as those who don't.

    I can only imagine what notes I'd be reading on TomInDayton's profile though. lol. So I think the way reputation works will be okay. If it's not, we'll tweak it or kill it.

    The only thing I'm not sure about, is that people can't read their own notes. I saw an option to change that, but it's not on by default. We'll have to see how this all works.

    I'm sure no one has User Notes yet, but if you ever want to comment on someone, just click on their profile and look for the 'User Notes' link. You can add or remove reputation points on someone by clicking on the box above any post that has both a check and an X in it. People can see where rep was given or taken, and what the comment was (if there was one), but they can't see where it came from.

    User has scUM sympathies
    User vacations in The State Up North
    User is a Buckeye prospect <-- starting value
    User is a Buckeye verbal

    User is in the two-deep
    User made the starting lineup
    User has a helmet full of Buckeyes!

    I like all of those titles quite a bit. Unless someone has something to add...?

    I like those as well, particularly the Buckeye leaf in place of the green dot.
