Yeah, you cant dislike posts on FB or IG either... Now they just need to make it to where we like own our posts and then they will up to par with the rest of the world.

This is only the first part, and its still a work in progress as you can see Most likely many of the scores will be changing in the coming days and weeks as we integrate more factors such as posts and good citizenship. Will make a more definitive post explaining it all once we have more of it in place, but this is the best way to see how it goes
Nice, there's tons of confusion on the M3post section as well. And obviously, we're all not mature enough to handle the initial features that was rolled out in the first 24 hours.

I would appreciate it if all scores are reset, some asshat keep bumping me down..., I'm at -13...lol

Oh absolutely it will be there, since its in so much flux right now and getting an app approved takes some time, I want to get the web based part down on more solid ground first

Yea it was a good idea, but so far it was getting seriously abused, much more then was obvious at first glance. I could see users just straight up stalking other peoples post and just went down the line and downvoted all their posts at once, obviously it had nothing to do with the post and everything to do with a grudge. For now its disabled, but I am working on a way to figure out trolling behavior and actually take their reputation down for being trolls.

With all this said, don't worry about the scores just yet. Most if not all the negative parts will be reset/factored out once I integrate the next stage over this weekend/early next week and I can guarantee your score in particular will be non negative

thanks, well, I know who gave me negative scores, and I know it was just a joke, no grudge or anything like that. When I was playing around with the features in the first hour, I also gave people negative scores to see how it impacted their overall, and it was all just me playing around with it.

I'm just saying, once the features are fully rolled out, then we can do a complete reset and start fresh, that would great, if not, no big deal, I'll come from behind.

Personally I couldn't give a flying * how many brownie points someone has. I'd be much more impressed with a rating scheme that assessed the accuracy of information a poster provides - particularly info from those purporting to offer "insider" information. Obviously that is never going to happen, nobody is going to take the time to retroactively judge people's predictions.

I feel like this is definitely going to turn into a popularity contest at some point. However, I like the idea of this but maybe not judging someone by the number of points they have?

It looks like they start you off with 1 point for every 100 posts. Then you add to that the number of "likes" your posts have received, and that becomes your green box rating.

Still don't get the idea behind it.

I don't know. I kind of like the idea. Not to play favourites or anything but assuming somebody does get a +1 or a like, I would like to think it was for something useful or helpful so if I see forum member post something and I see that they have a "high" number, I'm going to put more consideration into their post. Of course, this only works if it's used the way I would like it to...haha

Umm, I liked being in minus score. this thing sucks so take it away. If all the erased posts will take the score down, I'll be back on my region soon enough, but all in all, we already know who writes a lot. The forum doesn't need to tell us that by appreciating us.

All in all, I've met a lot of great people via this, I've formed great friendships via this. the green box takes away the point of writing, and I do have a knitting forum to return to and the Germans don't have this!

Let us be free without scores, attention whores will latch on to this anyway and that's what you need more, right?

Just saying...

If there is a way to code downvoting so that you can only do it once per day for any one particular person then I think that would work. If someone has a grudge against someone then they can just run up the score.

Glad I'm not the only one who was going "what the..... is that green box".

Mine was 0, and I was gone for a day and when I got on now it was 1, and was "??????, *ask a question, or look if someone else did".
Then found this thread.
Not sure I get the whole point of it though.
