I really do think this is a huge improvement over the "Thanks" system as well. It really does show not only positive reputation but also negative reputation, i.e. if someone posts something that insults fellow Linux users (like a "Put WinBloze back on there" response).

Senior Members and above already have the ability to manually leave negative rep.

We already have a moderation queue for spam and will continue this practice unrelated to the reputation system.

Or malicious code.

I went ahead and rolled this out to an additional usergroup. Additional feedback is still encouraged.

I agree, I would reserve that for things like "Delete System32 to make it go faster" or "rm -rf / helps keep the flux capacitor clean"

@jeremy
Thanks for the link! I've updated my sig to help spread the word.

Hi Jeremy,

Going smooth I think :-)

Kind regards,

Seems to be up and running. But I've not been able to find the post that shows the algorithm used to calculate it: this thread is huge now. Could someone point me to it?

Thanks,

Evo2.

The algorithm used to calculate how many rep points are added/retracted from a user, I think.

Either that, or the one used to give rep points to existing members.

The number shown next to "Rep:" in peoples posts.

There's no real algorithm to that. All new users start at 0 and some existing users were seeded in tiers when the system was rolled out. From there it's simply addition when someone gives you a positive rep.

I think the only real "algorithm" that's involved is in keeping control over how and when people can give/take rep points to/from someone, right? If it went unregulated, I could see it being heavily abused, as other members have stated here before.

Ok thanks. And presumably each negative rep. will subtract one. Is that right?

I recall there was some discussion about the system trying to reflect the users "current" status. Eg reputation points awarded to a user would expire after some period of time. Has that been implemented too?

Thanks,

Evo2.

Wow, 17 pages and I'm hopelessly lost on this rep thing despite actually reading most of those posts

I guess we'll see how it does in practice!
