Alright, I've had a look around and not seen any other threads about this, so here goes...

The first time I got a PM about community points, I was awarded 10 CPs. When the 2nd PM came about CPs, I had 0 CPs (after I checked the PM). Same with the third PM, which I just received.

It's not a big deal at all. It's just strange, and I'm curious as to why it's happening. Is anyone else having this problem, and do any admins have any input on this? Thanks.

From my PMs:

From: Site Owner
Date: October 10 2007 - 00:45:22
Subject: You have had 10 community points awarded
Thank you for contributing to the HBH community.

You have been awarded 10 Community Points.

Community Points (CP) are a way of measuring your input into the community, so others can see how much of an active member you are.
It also encourages articulate and helpful input around the site. You can see your CP ranking on your profile page.

Once again, thank you for your positive input on this website.

Have a great day!

Regards
HBH Staff


Not that I'm denying that I have my fair share of shitty posts... just not recently. Smile

That seems more likely. Smile Like I said, it's not a big deal... if no one can figure out what's going on with my CPs, it's cool. I'm sure I'll lose them later, anyways. :whoa:

Well, I just "received" another 20 CPs about five minutes ago, and I'm still showing "0" in my profile. Should I submit this as a bug? I think it may be related to the username change that I made on my account a while ago (from MagicStackBus to Zephyr_Pure); this seems to be the issue with the point rankings as well, where that old username shows up instead of my current one.

It's not terribly crucial... I would just like my points to be there to reflect my contribution to the people in this community.

I also think, that it's a little silly how a select few people (namely, moderators) decide what makes up a "quality post" or not. Moderators can't be on constantly to monitor the quality of posts. They might miss particularly good or disgustingly bad one. However, there are ALWAYS users online.

If you want the community points system to truly be effective, you should allow each user to have input as to whether a post deserved points or no. Perhaps a thumbs up or thumbs down button next to the post, as seen in dozens of Web 2.0 sites today. Something that makes it a little more, democratic.

Can we get back to my original issue now, or do you need to steal my thread for a while longer? Wink

The CP feature can be very cool. All you gotta do is create/come up with a system which makes them flow, like cash.

No offense but, reviewing the growth of HBH (HBH as application, not as community) I suspect this service will be available in what, ten years? Round up some guys, think this out and then actually code it. It would be great if this was done in 7/14 days. Speed thing up a little.

In the mean time: All your CP are belong to us!

Bump

Cheese, I am interested what your views are on the CP subject. Will you guys expand the use of CP and make a working system? (the current one is heavily flawed).

If you guys need help with this, be sure to contact me. I can come up with something if needed.

I belive we are going to go with the idea stated above. There will be a button added to the side of posts kinda like the Digg this article bury this article.

And if the post gets the "positve" button pressed a set amount of times by diffrent users then some CP points will be added to the user who made that post and Visa-Versa with negatives.

Not sure if there will be any Ideas in which CP points can be used for, rather than just to show your usefulness.

Was that of any help?

What about personal conflicts. There must be made a "postive/negative feedback reviewing" -thing in order to maintain... order.

I figure that the negative reviews will also have to accumulate more than one in order for the post to have any negative effects. It'd be silly for it to take multiple positive reviews to get CPs but, on the other hand, to only take one negative to penalize CPs.
