Solved Change users reputation

Post by [Kelly] on March 18th 2013, 5:19 am

I noticed that I had not changed my forum to not allow negative reps to count and someone got negative repped. I changed it so everything is now equal to 0 if negative repped, but I would like to know how you can physically change a persons reputation points. Meaning I can change an individual's reputation points. I looked and I did not see anything regarding it in the Module area and also searched for the it on these forums and found no reference of it, so figured I would ask Smile

Obviously I am Administrator/owner of the board and also I am not good at coding at all, so if it involves something code-related can you please break it down a bit more than usual? Also this is for a PhpBB2 board; unsure if the board's link is needed for such an issue.

Thank you loads! Very Happy

No, not reset the system, but I've noticed on other Phpbb2 Forumotion boards that Administrators were able to lock or set a certain amount of positive or negative reputation points for an individual user

That is not possible on Forumotion forums.

You can add codes where you can only give positive votes, if that is what you mean.

No, here is a picture of the other Phpbb2 Forumotion forum where someone (there's more than one person who has this) has reputation abused and the Administrator set them into the negatives of reputation because of it:

If someone does not have any positive votes and only negative votes, that number would be very high. You can have a negative reputation.

Is this solved now?

Apologies; I put it as solved but then you made a post so I replied. I suppose my question is answered; I know there has to be some sort of way to do this, just unsure how. Thanks, again, for answering though Very Happy

You can set it so that all negative marks give zero points instead of negative one but you have to do it in reputation management and it doesn't change existing negative scores. It would prevent future abuse, though.

ACP>Modules>Reputation>reputation managament

Just change all the Negatives to +0 and no one will ever get a lower score than they currently have. The red marks still will appear, though.

My other thought is that the person who runs the forum where you've taken that picture from has simply renamed their "Points" as "Reputation Points." You can add/subtract "Points" in the ACP but it's not the same as Reputation by default, though you can set it that way.

I managed to just get a hold of one of the Admins on the site and asked... So for anyone interested... Anyone who is reputation abusing, they move one of the threads of the rep abuser to a section where the field or negative repping gives -500

Put this as solved already (topic icon), but thanks again everyone it sincerely means a lot Very Happy
