Dragging this over to the correct thread.   ;D

Karma is easy to turn on. Do people really want it? Always seemed to me like it had the potential to be used as a club against people.

As the old saying goes, the devil's in the details.   >:D

How would the current system work if turned on?  Any options/variables?

If it works like Le Chuck's ideas here, ChadTower's ideas here, or my ideas here, it could be fine 8) . . . but if it turns into "chimps flinging poo", not so much.  :bat


Scott

EDIT: SMF Online Manual Karma entry is here -- it implies that there is a "disable smite" function.   ;D

EDIT2: Found threads on disabling smite here + here, and another mod limiting users to only awarding one karma point (positive or negative) to other users here.

OK Nephasth, I don't have you on ignore :)

Karma system installed. Up-votes only, no down-votes possible. Must have 5 posts to up-vote (Opinion?). Can only up-vote someone once per hour. Called it "Reputation" but open to other suggestions.

I must be blind. I can see the points, but can't see anything to give someone reputation.

I never down-vote for typos, we all make mistakes sometimes, nor for common abbreviations.  I DO down-vote for "leet speak".  Trying to read a message that looks like it was typed with someone's big toe on a T9 keyboard while they were driving is just stupid.

I was not particularly interested in a karma system, and will be keeping an eye on it. If it's causing more grief than it's giving benefit, it'll get yanked.

Can it be linked to individual posts as a 'like' button? I don't see the point of general e-peen enhancers.

I can't wait to have someone quote my thread, so:

On another forum I frequent, there is an option to like a particular post.  Each post I make has a record of likes received and the total is presented on my profile page.

This is why we can't have nice things.  :lol   :badmood:   :banghead:

First Lilshawn's rep gets hacked from 0 to -1 after his kitten videos comment, now PBJ and Le Chuck are in the -1000 range.

Unless and until the security holes are plugged and everything is set back to zero, Reputation is worse than worthless.   :soapbox:

Since it's confession time on downvotes, I'm the one that did the downvote testing on the "imatest" account.   >:D

Once Le Chuck and PBJ were dropped back to -1000, I also tried to hack/restore their rep, but was only able to change them by -1, followed by an upvote to neutralize the attempted hack.

Lilshawn -- Wasn't me that downvoted you for the kitten comment.   :dunno


Scott
EDIT: In case it wasn't clear, I didn't know that Saint was the one that put Le Chuck and PBJ at -1000.  When I saw that, I checked a known security flaw to see if it was the cause and if it could reverse the obviously incorrect rating.

such as reddit, i take my downvotes like a man. Only cowards delete their post at the first sign of negative karma.

My "inciteful comment" badge is a testament to that mantra.

That's nice of you to admit to being forum garbage.

So . . . your perspective is that the guy who,
1. Did some research and provided links on how to disable down-votes (including a recommended security patch) to make this rep system test easier for Saint
2. Took the time to test a well-known, easily-exploited security flaw on a test account
3. Tried to restore the Reputation of several obviously-hacked members by testing to see if it was caused (and could be reversed) by the same well-known flaw
. . . is "forum garbage"?   :dizzy:   :banghead:   :dizzy:

I somewhat agree -- I feel like I've been swimming in a septic tank for Up-voting you after unsuccessfully trying to restore your Reputation score.   :P
I solemnly promise to never Up-vote you again,  :tool:.
