New Ranking system for The Forum
« on: Nov 10, 2012 »

Hello Folks,

In order to better encourage quality discussions in the forum, We are now testing a new ranking system called Respects.

This new system will allow members to rate posts up or down using some new icons at the top of each topic and reply. If the post or reply is very good, rate it up by clicking on the up arrow.



If the reply is bad or you feel it breaks the forum rules then you can vote it down. Votes that get 5 bad votes or more will get hidden. (This figure may or may not change in the future, it depends on our observations during the tests).

For each up vote, the member who posted the reply gets a +1 increase in his respect. So the more of your posts people vote uo, the higher your respect. Conversely, for one down vote, your respect is reduced by -1. Topics and Replies can be voted on.

The Respect level of each member will be displayed on their profile. The higher the Respect a member has, the more they will be respected and recognised in the forum and also recognised by the Admins with occassional bonuses.


How to Increase Your Respect
Just like the Ranks, You cannot increase the value of your own Respect, only that of others. Also you cannot ask people to vote up your post.

So the best way to increase your respect is to write helpful, meaningful and quality replies to topics. And also creating helpful topics of your own that add value to their lives and teach new things too.


When to Vote Down a Post
Please do not abuse the use of the negative vote. Ideally you should only vote a post down for any of the following reasons:

- You feel the post has broken a forum rule
- If the writer is rude, unruly or insultive to another member
- If the post is off topic (i.e not related to the topic of the thread)

Topics and replies with the highest votes in the last seven days will get featured as Messages of the Week on the forum home page.


Conversion of Old Ranks
For now the old ranks are still visible but with time we shall transfer all your old rank points to your respect level so that nothing is lost. When we have completed the transfers then the Ranking System will be fully phased out.


For Web Designers
For those using SMF on their forum and wondering how we are doing this Respect system, what we are using is an SMF mod named Good Post/Bad Post or GP/BP


Finally...
All these changes are part of our positioning for growth. We are planning some really interesting things that will move everyone to another level in this forum.

God has been failthful and is still strongly helping us and leading us to a point where we can do so much more for you all and although things may seem a little slow in the forum lately, bigger and better things are coming soon.

I cant say much about these plans yet because they are still in the early stages of planning but to everyone in the house reading this, we have better things in store that will definitely impact everyone positively and of course give you so much more money.

If you have been impressed with what you have seen so far, then you have not seen anything yet.

May Jehovah Yahweh Be Praised Forever.

Thanks a lot for the observation. It has been rectified. You should be able to see the up and down arrows now (you wont see it on your own replies)
