    Question "Old" Reputation Mechanism gone?

    So, is the old Reputation mechanism (the star at the bottom) now completely gone in favor of the Like/Dislike functions?

    Not complaining, just not sure since nik's last post in the Rep System thread over in the Newbie section still talks about using the star.

    Forum changes are looking really good. Keep up the great work, y'all!
    Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

    Yes, the old Star system is gone now. I will do an update to the post later today (most likely later tonight) to update the information.

    Thanks for catching it before I got a chance to sneak the update in....ya jerk...

    On a related note (related to the rep system, not my jerkiness), do points still work the same (based on the clicking user's rep) or is it a flat # of points per like now?

    Thanks!

    Edit: I think I found the answer. The "Earn Points" break down says you get 5 pts per like. It still has the 4x listing for reputation but if that old system is gone, then I'm guessing nobody is getting those points from here on out.

    Hmmm... that's a good point. I may have to add a function to that somehow.

    Ok, so EACH Like you get +2 rep points. For Each Dislike someone throws on you, you lose 2 rep points. Is this fair? Should the points be slightly different?

    I think the old system was weighted towards positive rep giving more points than negative rep took away (like a 2 to 1 ratio maybe). But in that system you could only rep a post one time - meaning no positive rep followed by "taking it away" negative rep. The like system basically has an "undo" where you can dislike something to remove the like (and vice versa).

    So, all that to say this - I think the +2/-2 sounds like a good system given the differences in the rep vs like systems.

    The whole place is looking good, Kc....

    i prefer the system that built the ammount of rep you gave based on your rep in the community.

    I agree with Reaper. When we had ridiculous standards for rep, no one but those who donated ever got above 3 green bars. This would be like going back into that system again. Can we make the like/dislike system work in the same way the Rep system worked?
