Better reputation system
« on: September 15, 2011, 04:19:32 AM »
I feel the karma system is stale(sorry)
I don't know how to state but there are a few ideas and I don't know how can I put those in a structured way.

Apart from the applaud and smite, the number of comments and new topic started by that member shall also be counted. I'm not getting it shall be given great importance but shall be counted.

Like or '+1' system for comments and new topics.(shall be counted in karma)

Also, karma must also count the response a topic gets. If a members starts a topic and gets a lot of 'likes' and comments, his/her karma must be greater than other.

Also there must be a way to sort the comments by 'newest first' and 'most liked'

Well, it would be awesome to create some kind of plugin or mod which automatically would do-follow the external links of a member who has 10+ karma points or more or something. That would be a fantastic feature.

Well achievement point system can be better. Rewards maybe;

* can post w/o filling captcha
* can put avatar, can put external links
* can put signature (basic)
* can use sig advanced (can put links-images etc...)

Agree. It's a start of a reputation system, but small and insufficient for what the users who need it, need it to behave like.

Dunno. Number of posts are counted separately and available for viewing... whether that has much meaning or not. Of course, the obvious issue would be if reputation is or should be indeed dependent on number of posts.

This sounds useful for a reputation system.

Dunno. :). Comments... if the topic starts a "war", it is possible to get a lot of comments. :D


If SMF should have a reputation system (should it really? I wonder if it's best left to extensions), using it for permissions is a different thing though. Depending on the reputation system's criteria, it could be seen as very useful or very unfair and/or impeding more than helping the building of a community. Not sure. A member who doesn't get "likes" (maybe their posts are perfectly okay, but not exactly impressive) wouldn't be able to do things unless they chase "some more likes"...
I don't know if the perspective I'm looking at things is likely or unlikely to happen, but there's something here I have very strong doubts about. :)
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done… until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

Is there a mod for 1.1.16 that enables members to "like" their fellow members' posts?

Nevermind, just found this in another topic:
I agree. I think this could be a useful feature for a future version of SMF, given how the internet is becoming more and more "social", even in the world of forums :)

There is already a mod for this as well, but it's not free (see http://www.smfpacks.com/likes if you're interested).
Looks interesting!

I'd like to see Karma expanded upon as well.  Maybe some kind of built-in award system like what Xenforo has?

Who actually even uses Karma?
(none of the sites that I know of do so...)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support forums.  Thank you.

Pretty much no one, but I think that's because it doesn't have much to it.  It'd be nice if you could award users something based on Karma "milestones" and whatnot.  I.e., reaching 20 Karma triggers a notification that the user has received a reward, then on the back-end you can specify a graphic, description, and then even a post-bit icon that designates to other users that the person received the award.

It's not something that I'd likely use on my own site, but I know a lot of sites would have a use for it.

Reputation will not be a core feature. Likes is a core feature in 2.1, karma is in the process of being removed.
