The user reputation/rating system allows the board members to leave comments about one anothers' posts, and thereby contribute to their overall 'reputation'.



Members can gain and/or lose reputation based on how their posts are scored by other forum participants. Members with the ability to affect reputation, will either give or take aways points by approving or disapproving with a post's content. This can be achieved by clicking on the reputation icon [Reputation icon]



The ability to add/remove from another member's reputation is based on a set of controls which includes seniority, post count, own reputation level etc. This is expressed as reputation-altering power and will typically increase over time and by contributing more to the board. The higher your reputation-altering power is, the more impact a comment on another member's post will have.



A member's reputation/rating is depicted by a single icon with varying shades of green colours. The darker the colour the more neutral a reputation/rating is, the brighter the colour the more positive/negative a reputation/rating score is.

Hope this helped you.

it only matters to newbies.

The site went down due an attack a while ago, we had limited backup's from that time so if you had a certain criteria missing, Halo was the guy to contact to correct it, if you feel you are missing something Halo can go in and tweak it for you or meet you half way there.

Saintsfan601,

There are 2 points systems. One system called "Experience" is for member "activity" as in things you do on the website like posting threads, answering threads, posting blogs, etc.

The second is the "Rep" system where people can give you a "Rep" point for a good post.

The first system had a glitch in it that was awarding people 2 points per day for each day since they registered. Not only was it resource intensive, it wasn't fair because we had members who joined 7 or 8 years ago who were racking up BIG points but didn't contribute to the site.

So we removed that variable. When we removed it, everyone (and I mean every single member including mods/admins etc.) lost a few hundred points as we aren't awarding points for days since a member registered.

So it was a recalculation of the Experience points.
You can follow the Experience system by viewing this page located in the Quick Links menu: New Orleans Saints - Black and Gold - Ranking
