LQ Reputation System is now in BETA


I'm happy to announce that the LQ reputation system is now in BETA. Thanks for all the feedback provided by members here. I'm going to outline how the system works in this post, but if you're interested in further details I encourage you to read the linked thread.

Clicking the scales icon (or "Rep" link) in any post will allow you to leave feedback for a member. Here are some of the guidelines and details on how the system works.

* Any member will be able to opt out of the reputation system. To do so, go to Edit Options -> Show Your Reputation Level
* Members in the "New Member" group will not be able to use the reputation system. Once a member makes a single post and is in the "Member" group, they will be able to use the system. A member in the "Senior Member" group or higher will be able to leave positive or negative reputation. All negative reputation will require a comment and will count at 50%.
* A member will need to have a certain number of posts before they can give reputation off reputation and the amount of reputation you'll be able to give will depend on a variety of factors including length of membership, number of posts and amount of reputation.
* Using the "Did you find this post helpful" system with a yes will impact reputation by +1. Using the "Did you find this post helpful" system with a No will not impact reputation.

* Phase 2 of the system will probably include some forum specific component, where you have an LQ-wide reputation which can be broken down by on a per forum basis.

Thanks for the continued feedback on this topic. We put considerable thought into this and truly feel that this will be a large improvement over the "Thanks" system it replaced. If you have any specific suggestions on how you think we have make things better, please let us know.

good idea but if you're going to go that route why not include relevancy along the following lines:

you could also scale it based on how recently the points were gained i.e. last 12 months * 100%, last 24 months * 75%. last 36 months * 50% and older than 36 months * 25% or something like that.

something i feel would be far more useful is a flag denoting whether the issue has been resolved or not. this means that if you need a hand you can search for resolved issues and vice-a-versa if you can lend a hand.

We've had this at LQ for a very long time now.

Wow what a change-Been a year since I was here

Lets see been through 11 distros. met some great people from all over the world. Each one literally gave me a piece of themselves through Linux. I thanked them for each of them added to my Linux "reputation" and creditability. The need for identity and recognition beats within each of us to some degree. I truly like the change and this from a 78 year old perspective design1
PS yea you purists I did top post so what!

What happens to all the 'Thanks' we've gotten? Do they just disappear?! Can you make it so that a 'Thanks' == +Rep x2 ?

Hi,

The 'Thanks' you received before the reputation system was put into action have been included in the Reputation points you have now as indicated in this post.

Kind regards,

Eric

This is something that we'd certainly consider as part of a phase 2 feature for the rep system.

hope that's not stupid

I hope that I'm not look as a fool if I'm telling that I got a problem how to quote !
If I have a look to the icons I'm actually not sure if they are organized
for example left top icon is best, right bottom icon is worst,
Or for a helpfull reply just use smiling smiley or thumb up ?
And are there any scores behind the icons and how quote without the icons ?
