The reputation system

The reputation system is something new we are trying at NTFS, needless to say if it is abused it will be removed.

The basic idea is that everyone starts out with 10 reputation points. Here is the scale at which your "mouseover" description will change:

-999999 User is infamous around these parts
-50 User can only hope to improve
-10 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
50 User will become famous soon enough
150 User has a spectacular aura about
250 User is a jewel in the rough
350 User is just really nice
450 User is a glorious beacon of light
550 User is a name known to all
650 User is a splendid one to behold
1000 User has much to be proud of
1500 User has a brilliant future
2000 User has a reputation beyond repute

As you increase in the ranks you will also get additional greendots, if your reputation becomes negative you will get red dots.

Users cannot hide their reputation but the actual integer will be hidden, only green dots will be displayed. Users will not be able to see who voted for their reputation, but will be able to see an optional comment and which post the vote came from. Administrators can see who voted for them.

Once your reputation has been added to or removed from, the 7 most recent actions will be shown in the user control panel.

Administrators have to add or remove 7 points at one time, whereas users can only add or remove 1.

Having said that. while users can only add or remove one point, when each of the following has occured there "point power" will be increased by 1:

- For every 90 days that have passed since you have registered
- For every 500 posts made
- For every 30 reputation points earnt

Your votes will only start to count once you have reached 1 post and you will be unable to vote for other users if your reputation falls below 5 points.

Each user may only assign 10 reputation points every day and 20 other users must be voted for before you may vote for the original user again aka the user spread.

not sure post count should be used as a determining factor...

encourages spamming and says nothing about the reputation of the said poster..

ppl have to rate your post... whether its good/bad. Not something thats done just because you post. It is determined by members.

As admins have the power to remove or add 7 points at a time, I ask that they be very careful when voting!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
