Solved Points and Reputation

Post by jkh on June 24th 2020, 8:51 am

Hi all

Can someone please explain the difference between Points and Reputation?

I understand that Reputation means the amount of times someone has 'liked' your posts, but what is the 'Points' system please?

And will there be a way to show how many times your posts have been 'disliked' now there is a new system in place?

Also, I now have the new 'Like/Dislike' system showing but also the green thumbs up thingy aswell - how do I remove that?

hi

to remove the thumb you must deactivate the reputation system ( admin panel..modules...reputation) but that will also deactivate the reputation profile field

point system https://help.forumotion.com/t38437-the-points-system?highlight=points
reputation system https://help.forumotion.com/t38434-reputation-system-evaluation-thanks-button?highlight=reputation


the tutorial's note


Note:

This new system is independent of the voting system and has no connection with the reputation system. We are aware that the two systems are in some way “competitors”. It was difficult to replace or modify the current voting system since many administrators use it and customize it (as well as the reputation system).
We have therefore chosen to offer this new Likes system, which is much simpler and more interactive, while giving the administrator the choice of activating the system that best suits his community.
Everyone is free to choose between the two systems. You can keep the old one in place and take advantage of the reputation system. Or deactivate it to activate the "like and dislike" system. You even have the possibility of using both at the same time (although we find that it is not necessarily relevant to activate these two systems simultaneously).

Thank you.

The Points system on your link is clear as mud and still have no idea what it really means - guess I need more coffee Confused

If I only have the new Like/Dislike system showing and not the 'thumbs up' thingy, will the Reputation still increase?

And why isn't there a counter for any 'Disliked' posts?

the point system is like my forum ...you gain points by posting and replying to threads ( you set how many points from admin panel)
if you want you can exchange the points with extra features like i have the forum shop 

If I only have the new Like/Dislike system showing and not the 'thumbs up' thingy, will the Reputation still increase?

no !

OK, so what is the point of having the 'green thumbs up' thingy at the top of a post and the new Like/Dislike system at the bottom? It seems that members can use either within the same post.

Wouldn't it be better to just have a 'Dislike (say, red) thumbs down' at the top to go alongside the green Like thumb? And then have something in the profile to show negative votes aswell as positive votes? Confused

I need to read through all these links and threads on this subject when I've got more time, so is it ok to leave this thread open for a while because I'm sure I'll be back!! You know what I'm like Laughing

Ok i will leave the thread open if you need any more help

If you have the JavaScript enabled you only need to see this part of the code

Note
negative_vote : When set to true the negative vote button will be available. reputation - Improve the reputation system so it counts votes Minus10 Set this option to false if you don't want negative votes.

Many thanks for leaving this thread open while I've been deciding what to do with the new 'Like/Dislike' system and 'red thumbs down' thingy.

A lot of my members are now using the new 'Like/Dislike' system so I'll leave it there.

This thread can now be closed :rose:
