Please, force points would be awesome :)

example : http://www.csb-digital.com/alamdv/commu … /index.php

The owner of the forum (Revmen) give tokens to people who posts on the forum. Every token worth ten points (only when you give it!) if you keep it, it worths nothing. So when a member who have tokens see a post that answer is question or see a funny post, he can give a token to the post so the writter receive +10 points

The more points, the more helpful you are, and the more respect you have :D

P.S it will also be cool to make a points transfer system, like when I don’t have any token left, I can transfer 1 (or more…) point to someone

Thanks!

Having points doesn’t make you helpful.
And posting funny things to get points doesn’t earn respect.

Why not have a token just be worth a token? Why the random point system?

Oh, good idea, when you DON’T HAVE ANY, you can give away as many as you want to. Maybe you can explain how the hell you came up with this idea.

No, token are not the same thing as points!

when you receive a token from Revmen, you don’t receive ten points, you receive a token BUT when someone give a token to a post you have wrote, you add 10 points to your points
:)

Understand?

You’re right, my mistake, the more helpful, the more points ;)

So a token from revmen isnt as good as a token from sumone in the community? Where do these points we give come from? Can I giv emyselff 10 tokens? This concept is still pretty confusing.

Ok

Tokens have to start somewhere, so it’s the site owner (Revmen) who give them to anybody. When someones give a token to a post he found helpful, the tokens tranforms itself into 10 points that go to the writter. You cannot give tokens to your posts (because it would make no sence :? )

So if you don’t have any more tokens (and you cannot wait for Revmen to give you another one) you can transfer 1 point (or more) to someone else (but you will lose some point if you do that because you will give them to someone else)

And moderators can deleted points from someone who has posted a bad (offtopic, flamewar…) post.

Any questions? :)

This is a example of a -10 points post :D Point system will stop flamewar and useless post (?yolegoman? ;) )

*Smirks and gets another -10 post*

Ugh, I don’t like this thing at all. If this thing goes into effect, I’m hibernating into the chat and spamming away.

Yes,
and in the year 2000, everybody will have their own super-robot to keep them healthy, and a fuel-efficient, environmet-friendly hovercraft to take them around through the crime-free world in which all are happy.

And every gets a panda.

Wait, too late.

Bad idea: if you’re being helpful, you should be out of helpfulness, not because you’re getting points for it. And give poor RevMen all this work in the token-management while he has a complete redesign to work on? Sounds cruel to me… I liked the situation at the old forum, where there was no post count, no ranks, except for the ‘respected member’ title awarded to a few valued long-time members.

It means you got to be effective on the forums.
The rating of thread is something I can understand from a pro community (just like programmers that post hints) but not in this community.
This also means that someone has to read EVERY post and judge of its interest. Wow, I wouldn’t want to be that man !

No

And why does Revmen (or someone else :roll ) have to give token to members and not an automatic system? To stop cheating. Someone could just create another account and post one or two posts, then receive tokens and give points to his real account :(

And the point system works perfectly on the Alamdv forum, I have 639 points! :D

grrr

REVMAN DONT GIVE POINTS.. its slugs that randomly do it… And, the whole “FORCE HACK” is copyrighted to malone, who is NOT releasing it, meaning revman BETTER know his PHP!

its a cool idea, and the thing is… you can vote only ONCE per post… and the tokens are so you USE the point system WISELY and not STUPIDLY like yer all saying.. (i thinks)

why not just get the karma hack??? (i even use it, and if you think it hard to install, pfft)

so to tell you, there is no force hack, its only some php code malone put together himself, for the csb-digital forum (er, alamdv forum)
