In progress Explanation of Converting Points over to Spendable Blings during an Auction

Post by GrayceeJewel1 on October 26th 2016, 10:25 pm

Hi,
I don't understand any of the instructions on how to do the Point System...I want to award ppl for doing certain challenges or voting, but I don't understand how to set it up or what the +1 or +3 /posts or subject mean..I am not going to ask any of the other Admins what to do as they may think I am trying to copy their ideas..
Can anyone explain this system to me in an easy BABY version with Step 1 Step 2, etc in ABC form or come to my Group and help me ...This is all very hard for me as I am OLD! Ha
My group's name and URL is:
http://bratzandfriendz.forumotion.com/

I tried to do this myself and I had so many points that it was ridiclous...I want to change the Name of the Points to Bratz Blings and have an Auction using the Blings to spend...

I read that initially and it makes no sense to me..You might understand it , but I don't nor can I read that example even when I try to enlarge it..It is a very poor copy for my poor old eyes to read..Sorry..Can you make it in an ABC Step By Step version that I might understand..not a printed version of something I already read and did not make sense of? I wouldn't have asked you if I had understood that..
TY,
Graycee

In my Group, I have a topic called Vote For Bratz...Each member can vote on that link to Award1 to vote...or just any Topic that I have in a Forum, where I want to give them points, like Checking In, Etc...

Hello,

I think you will need to give the points individually if you are wanting to do this.

Thanks,
ChanelW

I would and plan to if I knew how to do it, which is why I wrote here in the first place...I don't UNDERSTAND THE POINT SYSTEM to begin with and that link does not help me..I need a nice person to tell it to me in a step by step method in babytalk so I know what it all means...

@GrayceeJewel1 Alright, I got you with this.

Setting up the Points System


Administration Panel > Modules > Points and reputation > Points system > General options

Activate the points system : Yes
Display average points per message : *Your choice*

This field just makes it show the average points per message the user gets on each post (on their profile).

"Points" field name : Bratz Blings
Display this field in : *Your choice*
Display this field for users that are at least : *Your choice*

I recommend setting this to Members if you disallow non-members from making posts.


Changing Points for each Forum


Administration Panel > Modules > Points and reputation > Points system > Points management

Gain per profile message - This is how many points a user gets when they send a private message.
Gain per friend - This is how many points a user gets when they get a new friend on their profile.
Gain per day since registration - For every day since the user joins the forum, this is how many points they receive.

Now you should see a list of all of your forums. The first number next to each forum is how many points a user gets from making a normal post within that forum. The second is how many for each time they start a topic.

Note: These values can be negative.


Donating Points


You can donate Points to users and groups.

Administration Panel > Modules > Points and reputation > Points donation

This is pretty self explanatory.

For users, type the user's name within the first text box and press "Ok". After this, they and their current amount of points should pop up. You can change their value to whatever you please (even a negative number).

For groups, you can't specify the amount of points for all group members. You can only add or deduct a certain amount from each member. For example:

Administrators are Ken with 5 points and Izuna with 10 points.

If you type +3 next to Administrators and press Save, Ken will now have 8 points and Izuna will have 13.



If you need any more clarification, then don't hesitate to ask.

Hello,
First you will need to activate your points system:

ACP -> Scroll to 'points & reputation' -> select 'point system' -> activate point system 'yes'

Hope this helps Wink

Thanks,
ChanelW

Ace posted before me at the same time sorry for the confusion, this is to activate your point system Smile

This is getting more understanding, but why do the members get points on their Profiles..I do not want that..What does the Profile have to do with this anyway?
What do all the +1 &+3 mean? I just want where if I go to a Forum and they are voting, they get 20 Bratz Blings and can I make this automatic or do I have to do it by hand manually each time(which would be a pain), then so many points for Checking in or making a tag..I don't want to have them get points for EVERY message or topic...I am trying to get each member a way to earn Blings so that they can spend them in December when I have a tag Auction....
This is beginning to give me a headache! Why did I start this...Haaaa
Keep me posted..Maybe you can come in and see where I am having my confusion..It is the 1=/message and 3+/Topic that is confusing me..I tried to make the numbers and had thousand of Points go on and this is not what I want..

OK, this is my confusion..points/message..I just want CERTAIN Topics getting Points, NOT every message!

Well then make it where you receive 0 points in a certain forum, 1 point for a certain forum, etc.

There is not a default way for giving each topic in one forum different point values.

The problem for me is when I give points to a topic..unless I make all the Topics 0 but the ones I want to get BLINGS, I end up with thousands of points for everyone..

Also where the names go how come ALL my members aren't on the list and when I go to add a new name it has to be under Donations and I don't want that..It also gives some random amt that I don't know where it comes from...

@GrayceeJewel1 I think that either you're setting the "Gain per day since registration" value or the "per message" value too high.

As for the names, you just type and asterisk (*) and press Ok. Then your entire memberlist should pop up. And the amount that pops up is how many points the user currently has.

I really don't know what I am doing..This Point System should come with ABC instructions.."Things" shouldn't be this confusing to the users...
I did the name and * and nothing worked to add the name but said it was "EDITED", whatever that means and her name wasn't there...Grrrrrrr loul Fright

Could you please post screenshots of the areas you are seeing in your administration panel?

If you are entering a certain member, you do not need the asterisk.
