Points ? [SOLVED]

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Wed 22 May 2013, 01:46

Hello Very Happy,

I actually have a small question, rather than a complaint. Every user has so-called "points", but what do they actually indicate ?
I assume it has something to do with how many people "click" or view your posts, or something similar ?

Their Social Networking "skill".

They are the same thing as Likes and Dislikes on YouTube. Notice the + and - on the right?

Hello,

As far as I know, there's also a correlation with how long you've been a member and how many "friends" you have on your profile.

There's also the matter of OMGWTFBBQHAX, like in your case Razz

Hello,

Indeed, reputation is controlled by the "+" and "-" buttons.
Points are... they're just there. You get +1 point each day and you'll get points when you post a topic or comment. In some sections you'll get more points for opening a topic.

Reputation is only earned via the "+", "-" and "Thanks" buttons. But the same idea is handled, so when you get a negative vote in some sections, you'll lose more reputation points then when used in a normal section.

Thanks dear Admin for trying to cheer me up! Very Happy
I know that, since they can't see the big red characters, it's so hard to see the tiny "+" "-". lol.

Hey Phoebe Very Happy,

I actually gave you a "thanks" once, not in the Mac section though (I hardly understand anything what is written in there, lol) but rather for
this very nice post here. You can easily recognize thanks by the fact that the posting background is yellow.

Keep in mind too that only the person who created a topic can actually give a "thanks"
to one user who answers; all other users can only give "+" or "-". And don't worry too much about this stuff: people will soon realize - if they haven't done so yet - that you are actually one of the very few active Mac Helpers on the forum, and will possibly acknowledge your posts more, as time passes by.

Beyond that, thanks to all other users for answering here too. I think I get the idea about the "points" now.

See you all on the forum
Wink

//EDIT

If you want, Admin, you can close this topic now.

It simply shows how few people use Mac and how fewer have problems Razz Help us Windows n00bs out and you might just have a reputation to compete with Lady ElDi's, since there's no shortage of Windows users... or problems with it...

Anyway is the "Thank" any different than the + ? I remember it only appeared once for me.

Hello there,

But that makes us appreciate Phoebe's work in the Mac section even more!
Besides, there's no competition here on the Forum, just help 'n fun.

Yes, a "Thanks" gives more reputation/points, but can only be used one. Use it on, for example, the post that answers your question.

OK then, I'll close this topic now. If anyone has more questions about this system, feel free to open a new topic in the "Off-topic" section. Very Happy
