Old Jun 22nd, 2011, 10:48 PM        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 )

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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