additional reputation (praise, beer , hi-five) system

Post by Jalokim on July 18th 2009, 2:25 pm

additional reputation (praise, beer , hi-five) system


Additional Praise function
this can be a beer / praise / thank / hi-five / expression system

this tut is co-developed by placehold

Overview:
This system uses your dice rolling feature to add an extra praise feature to your posts. After someone has posted that is.
here are a few examples:



Tools that you need:
A few emoticons (if you plan to use any)
A few catch phrases or prepared praises
A game master ( preferably a new member that will be a bot like thing)
How to get a game master:
Spoiler:
First you need to create a new account... give it a robo name or bot or something
admin panel-> modules -> RPG -> fields management :
User "Game Master" : enter the bots name and save


Step1:
- dice activation

Admin panel-> modules -> RPG -> fields management
Activate the rolls of dices : YES

you can also change the name of your praise function:


for the beer system : "give a beer"
for the high-5 : " high-5, dude"
for a real praise : "Was this thread helpful?"


under it you'll see:
User "Game Master" :
make sure to enter your bots name in there.

and save



Step2:
- dice activation 2

Admin panel-> modules -> RPG -> dices roll

Once there activate the dice rolling
enter the name once again
and select NO for bbcode rolling

and save



Step3:
- adding die

Now time to add some cool catch phrases or images or both!

hit the green "+" and add a new dice:



As you can see

in the first window : add the catch phrase :
for the beer system : "a beer for the man"
for the high-five system : "high five"

in the dice box add the number 1 (this is not important)
in the last window add an image if you are going to add images.

and save


Step4:
- adding die 2

Now you need to add more... so just repeat step 3 as many times as you wish.
remember to add some negative values:

for the beer mod: "you don't deserve a beer"
for the high -5: "low 5"

and so forth.

and save



The round up - how to use


Now that you have a couple dies:
Spoiler:

you can test them on your forum
THIS ONLY WORK WITH POST REPLY

this system doesn't for for new topics and it doesn't work in the quick reply

when replying to a post , you can locate the praise in a small window under your post;


next to it you'll see (on ipb and punBB) a dice +1 thing... ignore that.
just choose a message and it appears as a bot post under your message:




This system also works for blog forums! Razz

and thats about it.
