    User Reputation!

    This board has a "user reputation" indicator. It is a small square (for now) near the right side of the user's information bar. When you hold your mouse over it, it will display a "silly" comment indicating that the user has had some input from other users on the board.

    If someone is helped by a board user and wishes to add to a persons reputation, they would click on the "Carnation" in the colored bar just above the "reputation indicator". When you hold your mouse over it, it will display "add to whoever's reputation". It is a nice thing for people to do, and it is encouraged!

    This also carries over into the classifieds! So if someone is not happy with a deal they made in the classifieds, they can leave a negative rating, lowering the person's reputation. It is possible to go into a negative reputation, but hopefully we will all score enough "brownie points" to keep us away from there!

    Currently the ladder is...

    -100 User is infamous around these parts
    -20 User can only hope to improve
    -5 User has a little shameless behaviour in the past
    0 User is an unknown quantity at this point
    10 User is on a distinguished road
    25 User will become famous soon enough
    50 User has a spectacular aura about
    75 User is a jewel in the rough
    100 User is just really nice
    150 User is a glorious beacon of light
    200 User is a name known to all
    300 User is a splendid one to behold
    400 User has much to be proud of
    500 User has a brilliant future
    600 User has a reputation beyond repute

    Anyone interested in this feature is encouraged to comment so that it can be improved!

    Hey Bob,

    I'm in complete agreement with you on this subject.

    But.........

    It seem like it's always the same Active Members who HELP! Everyone out.
    and......

    When You attempt to add to Their Well Deserved Reputation
    a PROMPT Appears with an explaination that I have to spread reputation around before adding to those who HELP!

    It seem that if I have already added to someone reputation you not allowed to add additional "pat on the backs"

    Also some members even when requested, do not provide positive feedback based on Valued Information Provided

    ....which is another area that needs work and will improve the TEAM BUICK CONCEPT

    Highest Regards,

    Tom Gallagher

    I agree that there are some more able to help out. The problem with allowing someone more than one opportunity to add to someones reputation is that a person could sit there all night and add, boosting them unfaily to the top...

    I also understand that there are situations where someone would, justifyably, wish to add a second time. I am just uncertain how to do this at this time...

    Hey Bob

    The people that HELP! me out, I put on "MY BUDDY LIST"

    Perhaps that could be integrated into the System? as a priority

    I REALLY don't think Members would overstuff the ballot box.

    If someone was doing that I would think the system would be able to detect unusual activity.

    Highest Regards,
