So, it looks like the Reputation system has been modified .. what's the new distribution system?

(i.e. if someone has 100 reps how many points does he give out when repping someone? Negging someone?)



I searched the FAQ and recent rep theads and saw nothing...


Thanks,
~Storm

Reputation Factor settings (how much you give or take):
*Start: 1 point
*+1 for every year that you have been a member
*+1 for every 1000 posts that you have
*+1 for 150 rep you have

It bumped up from +1 for every 50 to +1 for every 150. People were gaining too much rep power too quick. hell they were giving out more than the Admins

Also, the requirment to get into the Pic/video section is now 50 rep points.

Change the description below video/pics forum name, it still says rep of 30 is needed. That will cause confusion for new users.

I still think it should be higher but whatever. It's the admins call.

I thought so too, but then I was thinking about it, and what has happend, is that all the lurkers that were just feeding off the vid section posted enough to get 30 rep. now they have quick posting again. Now they will have to get 50 reps on a much harder system of getting reps.

Basicly the reason why we only raised it to 50 so that when the lurkers get there 50 rep points and start not to post and just leaching again, we will raise it once again.

*Evil Laugh*

You evil bastard, you're conspiring to rid us of the lurkers................I like it! :devil:

sounds good,i figured thats the way it would be once they got enough rep they would quit posting again.i mean thats the only reason some are here is for the vids section only.i think alot of ones that got into the vids that are now back out will be pissed lol.but who gives a shit about them.and this is a great idea

Does that make me like a semi-lurker cos people don't know who I am but I know all you guys lol

When we do that people gain too much rep power though, we had people giving out (and took) almost 30 points with one rep. That's just too much since the limit to get into vids is only 50. After 50 though the rep really isn't a big issue.

well why don't you put a cap on the rep like 15 or 20 then raise then raise the pic and vids section to 100 there is abetter way just think about it

There is no way to put a cap on the rep sp it just keeps going higher.

I'm on my cell phone so I can't really see everything but is my sig gone.then what about raiseing the pics and vids section it just seems like all the big boys are grandfatherd in to legendary status and above a mod said people are giving out more rep then them. I personaly have repd mods and contribute to the site almost every chance I get and none of them have ever repd me again I'm not trying to bitch alright I am lol

^^^ You give white rep to mods(j/k)

Why are you worried about rep anyway? You can make threads in the main forum and can see the vids section. So I don't get all the whining.

lol i give out white rep to everyone lol no for real do you know how dominant your 1000 looks just a perk that i feel was ripped from my grasp lol idk just want to get to dominant staus its like raising the driving age to 18 when u were just about to turn 16

lol! Not that he wasn't already- but with the +1 per 1,000 posts combined with the other factors, do you realize you've made Afro one of the most, if not the most powerful poster here in terms of giving and taking rep points?

Afro= "Phenomenal cosmic powers!!! Iiiitty bitty living space."

besides having enough rep to see the vid section and post new threads I really dont see what the big deal is. I dont look at peoples rep to judge how knowledgable they are about mma

I was hitting people for well over 40 right before these changes were made. I thought it was way too much and that's why I rarely neg'd anyone.

On some boards I visit, the NEG power is 1/2 of your POS rep power.
That is, if I can pos rep someone 4 points, then my neg power would be 2 points.

Not sure how much granular control you have over the rep system on these boards.

how about adding some levels between 1000 and 2000

for how slowly u gain rep now it will probably take me 2 years or more to get to 2000. maybe some levels inbetween like 1250+ 1500+ 1750+

what the hell twanky how did u get infinity rep. die!

One final question:

If a post/thread gets deleted -like UFC 74 thread that "The Sundance Kid" deleted here (http://forums.mmanews.com/showthread.php?t=14076)
does our rep get deleted (like the post count does?)

Just curious.
And if it's true, please have Sundance kid + Clint re-rep me !!

You do have to remember some people do like reading peoples opinions without expressing their own.
I find it is rare that I will hold a discussion on here unless I am discussing my fights or thankins someone for providing videos.
I'm not trying to get on at anybody merely saying that some jus enjoy reading and staying in the background.

I agree... But I feel like I missed the boat. My wife was ill this summer and I didn't have much time on.... and now I'm building rep a point at a time... when similar posters have like 1000 rep.

ce la vie... the only time I was frustrated was when i was locked out of the stream for this weekend.

Thanks for saying this cause this is how I feel. I don't have the time to post 40 messages a day, but I do like to come here often (like 3 times a day to see news) and it gets me nothing. Posting shouldn't cause loyal forum members to be penalized. I feel like I have to just post some crappy message as much as I can to get repped. That's BS.

I believe that if you ignore someone you lose any rep they have given you, positive or negative. Not that I know anything about that...:fingersmilie:

In America, first you get the rep. Then you get the power. Then you get... the womens.

If all you come on here for is the news, then you shouldn't need rep.
