The new reputation (pickles) system
 
Rog wanted me to explain it more formally. Well, here's wtf is going on:

When someone posts, in the upper-right of their post you will see the post ID# and a few icons. One of them looks like a set of scales.

: Click this to leave "reputation" for a post. Basically you can say whether you especially liked or disliked a post. You will then add or subtract points equal to your "power" from that poster.

Your "power" is equal to 1 point per 100 days since joining and 1 point per 1000 posts. Therefore, someone who has been here for a year and has 5000 posts would have a power of 8. I don't know if your power is formally listed anywhere outside of the super secret admin options, so you'll have to let me know.

The pickle icons under someone's name shows an estimate of their current "reputation" total.

or : +100 rep
or : -100 rep

I don't really understand the significance of the lighter-colored pickles, but that's the gist of it. If this system ends up being liked, I'll update the graphix for it. If it ends up being lame and unused or a problem, it will be turned off.

Thanks for typing that up, Chojin.

The feedback people leave you can be viewed when you go to your own user control panel page: http://www.i-mockery.com/forum/usercp.php

As with anything else on these forums, please do not abuse this reputation system or stalk any single user with tons of negative feedback or anything.

the example poster is a good one because they could not exist (5000 posts in a YEAR :eek)

Chojin Jun 23rd, 2011 02:29 AM

that's less than 14 posts a day. achimp managed that pretty easy.

Mockery Jun 23rd, 2011 02:31 AM

Is there a limit to how many pickles one can get? Kahl already has a bunch, and if there's no limit, these forums could start to look extremely cluttered.

Chojin Jun 23rd, 2011 02:34 AM

i don't know if there's a limit, but i think after a certain point you start getting bright pickles instead and they're worth more so it doesn't start overflowing like nuts. for example pram maven has -500, so you can see what a ton of negative rep looks like and it doesn't clutter much

also after a month or so i was going to reduce the power rating by a factor of 2 or 3. it's as high as it is now so that we can get some variance to scores.

So it says I have 150 points, that means my votes are wothe a pickle and a half each?

10,000 Volt Ghost Jun 23rd, 2011 01:28 PM

What's my hidden score at?

Esuohlim Jun 23rd, 2011 01:39 PM

You can quickly check your score by clicking the scales on one of your own posts

10,000 Volt Ghost Jun 23rd, 2011 01:52 PM

I thought I read somewhere in the chat thread that there were hidden secret scores too. Is that just what the scale number is then?

no, your rep points are unrelated to your voting power

The limit for giving out rep should be raised a little bit for the 24 hour period. I negative-zugged a bunch of old Lenor posts and now I feel bad that I can't rep anyone up today :(

Chojin Jun 23rd, 2011 08:01 PM

WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY

Dr. Boogie Jun 23rd, 2011 08:23 PM

There's a limit to how many pickles you can get, 11 pickles in either red or green.

AChimp Jun 26th, 2011 02:33 PM

I used to have lots of time to post all the time, but then I finished school and then I-Mockery was blocked by my work's Internet filter. :(

Kitsa Jun 28th, 2011 12:43 PM

1) When Chojin leaves me feedback in all caps, I can't tell if he's being sarcastic or not :(

2) I wish this system had been around when I made the tap dancing penis cake.

Colonel Flagg Jun 29th, 2011 12:29 AM

You don't need any help, Kit. ;)

Kitsa Jun 29th, 2011 01:01 AM

Dunno. My opinion must not count for shit because I vote people up and they never get an increase in pickles, :lol

executioneer Jun 29th, 2011 01:34 AM

i believe your "powerlevel" allows you to add .19 of a pickle per vote (currently)

Kitsa Jun 29th, 2011 10:28 AM

No one told me this forum was going to involve math :(

Colonel Flagg Jun 29th, 2011 12:34 PM

Math is so hard....

So if a person has no reputation either way, it displays this?
