  • Reputation and Thread views

    Choose as many poll options as you'd like when answering.

    Please advise how you like the different views we can have in the forum. We have a choice of two, horizontal or vertical.

    Horizontal is when the poster's information is on TOP of the post, picture is to the left, poster's information is to the right. The advantages of this are that it saves space, which, may not be an issue for people, lol. The disadvantages are that it is not what we're used to. For an example, it's what I have on the forums now.

    Vertical is when the poster's picture and information are to the left of the post. Because there's a lot of information, and picture space, you end up with a lot of blank space underneath small posts, if posters do not write a lot. For an example, look at Disney's boards (http://www.disboards.com/).

    Please advise as to how you like the Reputation system. I've made it so that if you alter someone's reputation, a box will show up under their post showing your comments and agree/disagree status in that post. I can make it so that only the reciever of the comments can see them in that post, or, so that no one can see them (then, I'm not sure where you see those comments, maybe in your personal USER CP. Personally, I kind of like the public viewing of these; it can be helpful, and interesting, as long as people remain kind of civil. If people don't remain civil, then it can be downright entertaining....

    Reputation system is on the boards not only to make it educational and interesting, but, to provide me with a mechanism to provide free training eventually, for people with high reputations. There is a method to my eternal madness.

    Think well here. Let me know what you want to do. Poll closes in thirty days.

    HEY, My hair is clean!

      I think you both should put some serious time into those godesses for starters but as far as the rep comments go, providing we can trace who's said what , negative or supportive....it's all insight on one of either our characters right...I think leaving your name on your comment should be mandatory......


      and now boys , I do believe you both have some godesses to attend.......

      and such is the work of the great men of russbo.....

      cheers

        This is fun, albeit a bit confusing at first. This is by far the most "advanced" board I frequent. I also said I like the poster's info on top, as it is something different, but not confusing or anything.

          Woah!!! What's happened??? Peoples' reputations have dropped loads. (Unless I'm imagining things)

          And I'm sure nobody's been dissing Shaolinstylee - everbody seems to love him. (must be that avatar)

          Perhaps Doc was getting jealous since his rep was staying on 10??

            Never fear. I've played with the numbers a bit so that new members can't flood the boards with negativity. It might have brought things down a bit. But your actual reputation can be found in your USER CP (what you see on your post boxes is your reputation power, or, your ability to influence other people's reputations).

            Make sense. Yea, I understand it too. Whatever.

                  Thanks, man. And Doc, dude...wow...


                  anyway, the whole rating thing is pretty cool...takes a bit out of me to swallow the ego and let the world know i agree with someone on something, heh, but it does tend to happen here more than, say Shaolinwolf.com...definately a place which has seen less of me over the past year, and nowhere near the sophistication of this place.

                    If nothing else, Steve, we have missed your gifs...i think the last one i saw was the one with the springy shoes, though i have to say that thread with Micky on it was one of the best, and you didnt even need to do that much.

                    Now, the one with SYX....that should have been in the news.

                            If you post a hyperlink, the text looks exactly the same as the rest of it.... I was wondering if there was a control for that somewhere in the board. On your end or in the user cp (I couldn't find it, but then again I'm a numbskull).


                            This is the current setting for hyperlinking..


                            If you set it to dark red or something

                              Interesting, I tried to do the second hyperlink in dark red, but it came up white as well....

                              I have the forum set to the red trim.....

                              Maybe doing both at once doesn't work (the hyperlink and color feature don't seem to work together..)
