Member rating system
Hello jeremy.

What is the method by which you rate members of this forum? Or do you have any rating system at all?

I know that you have usertitles based on number of posts etc. but is there any kind of rating wherein you know which members are contributing a lot and which are not?

I also want to know how you appoint moderators? I know that there is something in the FAQ about this, but I would like to know a bit more about this. Or is it a secret? :)

There is no rating system used on LQ - and member titles are awarded on number of posts.

Although LQ doesn't have it's own rating system there are affero buttons for users that use affero.

hi there

rating members won't be a good idea
because noone here wants to give a wrong advice,
everyone tries out his/her best for helping someone and those who do not wish to help out someone do not go for posting anything

I was aware that there were several threads that asked the moderator question.

But none of them answered straight whether it is based on ranking or number of posts etc.

What I wanted to know was whether the website owner had an internal ranking system for members.

However I guess that the thing is rather more subjective than objective. I guess that the easiest way to become a moderator is to create my own online forum :D :D and I also had a question about that here:

If anybody experienced in this can advice please follow the link above. Thanks!

Nope, I don't.

Thanks jeremy :) I clicked the "Answered" button at the bottom, though I don't know in what way that affects this thread.
