NOTE: this post is outdated and will be updated in the near future when the numbers have settled.

What is reputation?

Reputation is a way of rating users depending on the quality of their posts.

Reputation may be positive, or negative.
Neutral reputation is only given when the person giving reputation can not affect a persons reputation.

How do I give reputation?

To give reputation, click on the reputation icon in the relevant post.

This will reveal a form to complete with the reputation type and the reason for giving the reputation.


http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/7216/98820942.jpg

You may not give reputation for the same post twice.


How do I know what reputation I have received?

You can view the reputation that you have received in your User CP (User Control Panel) where it is displayed at the bottom of the User CP page.
Here you will see the latest reputation that you have received and whether this is positive, negative or neutral.

http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/1116/93716137.jpg

Your total reputation will be shown as series of reputation indicators in your posts and profile. The more positive your reputation, the more positive icons will be shown.
The more negative your reputation the more negative icons will be shown.


How much reputation is given? What is reputation power?

You give to a users reputation a number of points equal to your reputation power.

You subtract from a users reputation equal to half of your rep power

YOUR REP POWER/AMOUNT DOCKED
1/1
2/1
3/1
4/2
5/2
6/3
7/3
8/4
9/4
10/5
and so on.

There is a forum-wide cap on rep of 5, but some forums (unproductive ones such as offtopic and clubs) have a lower cap. This is to encourage people to post quality posts in relevant areas (bookstore, battlegrounds, Battle-Narrative system etc) instead of chatting randomly in offtopic.

Reputation power is calculated like so:

Numbers are currently being tweaked so this will not be accurate.
For every 365 number of days since you signed up, you gain 1 point of reputation power.
For every 5000 posts, you gain 1 point of reputation power.
For every ~120(ish) points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation power.


Pre-requisites
You must have 50 posts before you can affect any ones reputation.
You must have 3 reputation before you can affect any ones reputation.

Also, you may only alter reputation (up or down) 20 times a day.
In addition, you must Alter 20 peoples reputation before you can alter that persons rep again.

The rep titles currently known are:



0- User is just chillin' in the village doing D-ranks at this point.
10- User saved a kitten from a tree! Yay!
30- User has completed a tough C-rank mission!
75- User is far along on the distinguished path of a ninja.
150- User has a spectacular chakra aura going on.
250- User just finished a high-profile B-Rank mission...and went unscathed.
350- User has a pricey dish named after them at Ichiraku Ramen.
450- User completed an A-Rank mission and saved the forum yet again.
550- User strikes fear and awe in the fragile hearts of Genins.
650- User is one of the most respected ninja in the in the tri-village area.
750- User completed an S-Rank mission on the way to the bathroom.
900- User just might be Kage someday.
1250- User is listed in every clan's bingo book under AWESOME.
2000- User is the subject of legends and tales that shall be passed on for generations to come.

I hope this post helps explain the new system. If you liked it, give me some reputation or, even better, find a post of someone who has helped you out, and give them some rep! You can use the pics as a guide.

Thanks for the Explanation. I may not like this feature, but it is intriguing. Can others see the comments you've received or only you? i find this forum to be much too ...public, and revealing.

Oh.. and I would have given you good rep for such an informative post... but your obnoxiously large photos stretching the forum got in the way of my decision. :P

Toma RNK

Basically you can down the reputation of one line posters just posting to get their post count up, and up the reputation of people who post useful stuff.

Mods can unlock features based on post count or reputation and all sorts of stuff.

IT's a fun system.

im just curious, on your rep, toma, it says you are on a distinguished road, and it shows green, somepeoples are grey, and some peoples are also green, but it says that they have an unknown quantity. what does this man? thanks for the help :)

Konoha'sGreenThunder
06-04-2009, 11:30 AM
The unknown quantity, I assume, means that they're neutral; neither good nor bad (even though the quantity part would make you think that the number is unknown). I've not quite figured it all out yet, though. It seems I had one reputation point, but it wasn't green. Then I gained another just a minute ago (I assume that was you?) and it still says one but is green now. -shrugs-

yes exactly, (and it wasme you helped a lot on the control panel thread) and mine says four, but is gray, so i assume its negative or probably neutral, but im really not sure, kinda confused. If someone could explain the colors and things of that nature that would be great :)

Click your name and go to statistics.

They're working on a button like the old one that lets you view recent posts and see if there's been new posts in the threads, etc.

Toma RNK
06-04-2009, 02:26 PM
To all those curious about the display.

Basically your exact reputation is not displayed for everyone to see but instead is represented by the little green boxes. As you get more, you get more green boxes. There is a place for the mods to change how many points you need for each title.

By default the settings look like this:

User is infamous around these parts -9999999
User can only hope to improve -50
User has a little shameless behaviour -10
User is an unknown quantity at this point 0
User is on a distinguished road 10
User will become famous soon enough 50
User has a spectacular aura about 150
User is a jewel in the rough 250
User is just really nice 350
User is a glorious beacon of light 450
User is a name known to all 550
User is a splendid one to behold 650
User has much to be proud of 1000
User has a brilliant future 1500
User has a reputation beyond repute 2000

Though I am hoping once things calm down the mods can make this more "naruto styled" like the ranks.

ok, so does that mean that if you have a grayish box, and 4 rep power, (like me) that you are negative 4, or is it something different?

Toma RNK
06-04-2009, 02:38 PM
Remember rep points and rep power are different.

Rep power = how much you add or subtract when you click the reputation icon in a post. Your 3k posts are what gives you the extra three rep power bringong your default 1 up to 4.

Your rep points are calculated based on the reputation your posts receive.

You have 4 power but now many people have given you rep based on your posts.

Hope this is clear.

Personally, I think this is a really good idea. When you view people's post counts it does not reflect the quality of a post, so I like how the reputation points can reflect whether or not a person's posts are beneficial or not. While high post counts are cool, its nice to know that the content of posts can now be taken into consideration. Definitely a good idea.

ok, so everyone starts at 1, and me having 3000 post brings it up three, i get that now, but im still a little confused on the boxes and what color it is, is it gray because i havent been given rep based on my posts, since the only rep i have is default plus my post count, (you deerve mad rep for helping all of us)

Agent Spectre

I think it's kind of silly that our "Rep Power" shows up in our post info above our Reputation status.
It confuses a lot of people who don't know the difference, and really doesn't need to be public on every post you make in the first place. I think it should appear on your profile instead, but that's just me.

When you view people's post counts it does not reflect the quality of a post

And this is why I don't understand why post count adds to rep power... -_-
Oh well, whatever.

but im still a little confused on the boxes and what color it is, is it gray because i havent been given rep based on my posts, since the only rep i have is default plus my post count

Don't hold me to this, I've never worked on a vBulletin forum... but I think the grey boxes means you have received rep points from one of those neutral people. I theorize if you have negative rep you get red boxes. Just my guess. That or you just haven't received ANY rep points yet and are in a neutral position.
(btw, just to clear it up again, you don't have any rep form "default" or "post count". That is your rep Power. Power is how many points you give or take from others when you decided to add to their rep. =D)


So wait... all reputation given is anonymous, aside from the number of points given?

I like the idea as it allows us to see the quality of people's post as 3lilpandas explained, but there might be people who will abuse their reputation. They might just give them reps because their friends or neg reps because they hate each other. The people doing that should be repsealed along with repwhores.

Thats why the 10 points per day toal, and the "you must give/take rep from 20 people before being able to affect the first person again" rules are in place, they keep it more fair.

Yep... it's quite honestly the most balanced "karma" system I've ever seen. You know... except for the fact of giving potential spammers more rep power. But I suppose having negative rep points void your power is a counter weight... ::shrugs::... yeah it's balanced as much as it can be.

The rest is really up to the users best judgment. ::sigh::

Reputation Point Factor
For every 100 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

I forgot about this. I will add it to the original post.

06-04-2009, 04:09 PM
Cool I like this system. It sounds like a good idea. People might actually post quality stuff to improve their rep. Also, when we get the village war system going more, it'll effect your battle rank, abilities, etc. Might want to add this to your post.

Agent Spectre
06-04-2009, 04:48 PM
I think the real thing that needs to be fixed in the original post is this:

You must have 10 points of reputation before you can affect anyones reputation. (You start with 10 reputation so unless people are docking you rep, you should be fine)

Correct me if I'm wrong but it's 0 now right?

It may, though we have no idea how. It hasn't been worked out yet. I would like it to, but I don't go telling people t WILL until I have some idea how.

It is a new tool available to use and we will probably use it. I am not prepared to tell people how it will work or be fair and balanced, so I am not going to make a big deal out of it.

You are in fact only adding to the number of PM's I am getting asking HOW it will affect the battle system. That number is up to 4 since you first posted this, and will likely be 80 by the end of the day.

People wonder why it takes me so long to accomplish anything with this system.

Nick Tasogare
06-04-2009, 05:23 PM
guys, everyone seems to complain about everything taking so long, and then they pm everyone asking what is going on, and they still wonder why it isnt done yet

answer: they are reading your pms, checking to see if it is anything worthwhile , you need to leave them alone if you want them to be able to get anything finished

and i have a suggestion: just finish the initial war system, and put add ons later, it will satisfy everyone, and give you some peace and quiet to take a break and when you are rested you can go back to putting in add ons

EDIT: if you arent doing that already of course : )

i would be happy to help, even if i am not admitted to the war council : )

EDIT: ill do whatever needs doing : )

Excellent system! I approve of it!

However, is there a 'subtract' rep system in place right now to combat spammers or people who create multiple accounts to accumulate rep?

I assume mods have the power to subtract rep form people.

And people, PMing Toma RNK won't make the battle system come any faster. It will be released when it is ready, and not before. In fact, for every pointless PM the council get, they have to waste time to read, and reply to that PM and thus they will have less time to spent on working on the actual system. Now it might not seem much to read and reply to a single PM, but once you get like 100 of them, it will take a lot of time.

Though I am hoping once things calm down the mods can make this more "naruto styled" like the ranks.

I think these ranks should be displayed whenever someone posts. Right now it's only hidden by the box and need to be mouse-overed to display it.

For every 365 number of days since you signed up, you gain 1 point of reputation power.
For every 1000 posts, you gain 1 point of reputation power.
For every 100 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation power.

I think the 1 rep power every year is a little too long. I mean, people can easily earn 1000 posts or 100 points in say a month or 2, so 365 days seems to be way too long. How about making it something like every 60 days?

PS: the names of the ranks are terrible... I assume you put them together in a hurry eh?

I agree that the rank should show rather than the rep power, But it would probably take some serious coding to do that.

I disagree about your proposed time length. think about it from the other point of view, people will easily be getting more power every two months just simply for being registered? They could very well not have contributed anything and get rewarded for it.
Six months, maybe... but I'm not arguing with a whole year, since like you said... there are far easier and more meaningful ways to gain power.

lol... well.. as for the rank "names"... Toma did say
Though I am hoping once things calm down the mods can make this more "naruto styled" like the ranks.
So the ones there are obviously the defaults, and hopefully the mods will change them when they have time.

Another question I had... What exactly IS Neutral Rep, and how does one get it?
I notice the rep given in the image of the original post is neutral (grey), and I also have received one with no comment.

I totally agree zachtrex its a great balace between quanity and quality.

The only reason the system is faulty is because only the most popular individuals seem to pick up any sort of reputation.

Even if you make a really bad or a really good post... the majority of people just aren't going to add to the rep of that post. Things go ignored.

That and people who have spammy friends with a high "rep power" get a lot of rep for basically nothing.

Ah the bliss of ignorance in society... -_-;

Its a good system but people can make mistakes. Some person gave me bad reputation because he thought I was the guy who posted above me because we had the same avatar. the guy had a spelling error.

Someone would reduce rep over a spelling error? I've just learned to ignore minor ones because everybody makes mistakes and misses errors sometimes. Besides, some words have multiple spellings, like color vs colour and theater vs theatre. Other multiple spellings come from when Japanese words are written in their romantisized form, such as Hyuga/Hyuuga.

Is there currently an appeal system where users can appleal rep given/taken from them to a mod? And the mod can then go in and see if it is a valid reason why the rep was given that way and if it is simply flaming, they can undo the changes in rep?

I'm sorry this will mean more work for you mods, but I think this is the issue most people are afraid of. After all, you get paid to do this and no pain no gain right? xD

yeah its shame that people do not use it properly. I like how it makes you wait so you can not get spam reputation all at once. Hey has anybody figured out the interval of time to re rep someone yet?
20 people.

If you rep me you must rep 20 people before reping me again. if you mean the daily limit, it is 10 rep clicks every 24 hours.

Toma RNK
06-25-2009, 03:58 PM

If you scroll down on the main page to the "top 10 stats", you can click on the arrow next to it and select "view more". Then expand it to top 20, or top 30 and then click on the arrow next to "most popular forum" or "top posters". You'll see a dropdown box and one of the options is "top reputations". There you can view top 5, 10, 20, 30, 50 and 100 top reputations.

Well, I think Toma harvested ALOT of rep through the "I LUV THIS THREAD SO MUCH" picture, the awesome optical illusion and the rogue vs rouge thread (my fav).

I personally don't mind that much, since I like being in the backgroud anyways. What annoys me is that I have top 10 rep of all users but still only 1 rep power. GIEF MORE POWER!!! :twisted:

Yes, the same thing happened to me just a few minutes ago, someone with a rep power of two gave me bad rep, because of no apparent reason, they left ...

The only way I believe negative rep should be given is if something was very inappropriate. Roleplaying shouldn't be a reason in my opinion.

But if you have any negative rep that doesn't have comments on it, PM a mod and they will most likely remove it. They did to me at least.

about 15-20.

Most clicks are neutral rep since it is an intro guide, or one point cause the person is still new but has enough for 1 rep.

I am currently at 210 and this guide has not contributed much to it.

In fact my guides do surprisingly little, most rep is from useful comments or help I provide people, and occasionally for calling out people who are breaking the rues or being mean.

Something like that happened to me.

It was on the Zabuza vs Killer Bee thread.

It said, rep down.

But it was neutral.

Did that person know how

to give somebody bad rep?

Also, how do you give neutral

rep? I've tried, but I don't think that

it worked at all. Also, why would you want

to give neutral rep? It wastes 1 out of the 20

times per day that you have.

The Demon Zabuza
07-04-2009, 09:46 AM
Neutral rep is given when you don't have enough posts or rep of your own for it to count. I think that the current limit is fifty posts and ten of your own rep points. If your don't have these, your rep is Neutral.

Neutral Reputation means that the person has NO REP POWER. Which means either they have bad Reputation or just don't have the requirements.

If this netural rep was given by someone who didn't meet the requriments, once they get the requirments, will the rep turn a color? Like green or red? Or will it just stay netural regardless if the person reaches the reqirments after they gave you rep?

problem is, people abuse everything. perhaps we should remove peoples ability to edit their own post cause some abuse it.

Should we get if of all the ranks and titles too? People spam or postfarm to increase those. For every reward there is a way for a dumb user to misunderstand or abuse a system.

Trying to find the right balance is tough but at this point I think having postcount and reputation balance each other out.

Hmmm. You make an interesting point.

I don't have anything against the rep system, I just have an instinctive response to anything I see that I don't consider fair.

Not that the system isn't, but as you said, certain people tend to be that way.


Still, your arguement is superior. I concede the point.

rep systems are fail when it doesn't auto sign your name. really I got a neg rep saying "gh". I checked to see if there was a user by that name or initials, but no they probably just hit it because they are the two letters on the center of a keyboard.

Be a man and sign your rep, and at least give a good reason for why the post warranted you taking time out of your life to leave it.

You overestimate most users, and underestimate how little time the real mods are able to be here.

If we enabled it there would be n less than 20 threads with people screaming at each other and 5 people leaving the forums over the argument. Trust me on this one, I saw it happen.

While true it s good to have multiple metrics to measure users, as having post count exclusively leads to massive post farming.

No system is perfect, but now you can get a ROUGH quality/quantity count. Which I would argue is superior to quantity alone.

If you read the first post, every person has reputation power.

This Rep power is calculated like so:

You get one rep power once you make a few posts and like 3 or 5 rep.
You get 1 rep power at 50 reputation.

Every 50 rep after that (100, 150, 200, ect) you get another rep power.

You also get 1 rep point for every 2000 posts you make.

You had 3 rep points cause you had over 100 rep at the time (and less than 2000 posts)

Then 4 people down repped you and your rep went below 100.

When someone downreps you, they give you an amount of negative rep equal to 1/2 their rep power.

The Demon Zabuza has the 7th highest rep on the forums at 516 reputation and 12 rep power, so he downreped you for -6.

The system is set up so those with more rep (cause they help more and have been helping or saying funny things longer) affect others rep more.

I have over 1200 rep and have 24-26 rep power. I however for some odd reason downrep people my full amount.

I hope this explains it.

(BTW saying "im not complaining" is a safe bet when talking about rep. People around here tend to downrep instantly if people complain about downreps.)

Well you can't take an action back, though you can edit a post.

The fact that upreps are twice as powerful as downreps usually cancels things out. Also downreps serve to show people what not to do in the future. Sure sometimes downreps happen for a bad reason, but people also get uprepped for silly reasons too, so in the end things balance out. No system is perfect.

So if I were to insult every member of the forums in one post, only one of them could down rep me? If more than one person down rep a post, then it usually deserves it. Especially if the people have high rep power.

And try to leave your name when you down rep, it shows courage.

Any single user may only uprep or downrep any other user once, then ust give/take rep from ten people before going back to the first.

But no, in theory, every forum user could uprep me OR downrep me for a single post. That way every person gets to affect the person who posteds rep.

All 8 people disliked your post, and downreped you to let you know it. But one person could not down rep you 8 times in a row, or 8 times in one post.

That can also happen especially if the person is a new account. 1 or 2 downreps and you are in the negative.

But if your first post upsets people that much, well, it kinda makes sense in a way.

If you could rep as many times as you wanted for a post it defeat the purpose of having rep power.

I mean if I didn't like what you said I could downrep you 100 times. Thats just dumb. Thats why a user can only downrep once per post.

No system can account for pure stupidity. I'm sorry to hear this is happening.

I still think it is better to have rep AND post count as metrics as opposed to just post count (as that encourages post farming and spamming.)

I am actually totally against just having post counts determine your rank as well. A lot of people do in fact just spam the heck out on forums just to have high ranks. That annoys me, then again a lot of stuff annoy me so I guess its just me. Though I am not against the ranking system either, but it can be abused (anything can be abused so I guess I can't argue with that.)

Well, post count is almost universal in all forums, but it's a poor way to rate users, so the reputation system was added. That way, spam users will get downrepped a lot, and thus have less rep, while people who only post the occasional uberawesome post will gain a lot of rep.

Toma RNK

Sadly with over 13,000 members and 2 mods, we have to rely on some automated system, and post could AND rep are the only two measurable automated metrics available.

They come to an OK balance, but its the best that can be managed at this time. Any better system would either be at the whims of a few users, or take so much of the mods time they can do nothing useful.
