I upgraded the board software and it's done some funny things, the first of which is lose everybody's avatars... You'll need to re-upload your avatar.

Unfortunately, it didn't fix the thread posting bug, much to my disappointment. This means it's a database error. I'm working on getting assistance on it. :unamused:

Let me know of any anomolies that you run into...

My Cool Hand Luke avatar has been very good juju. I put it up right after we lost to Miami and we've been a juggernaut ever since.

Your avatar problem is probably coming from the image size checking the board does automatically now.

If a usergroup uploads an avatar it is suppose to automatically resize the avatar to conform with the usergroup settings

Well, he's represented the board so proudly over the years. In between bannings for his racist screeds against blacks and Asians, and his posting full frontal nudity on the main board. I guess you don't stop accumulating time while you're on suspension.

Maybe treating Taco like a fool and his board like your personal hate blog is the key to large rep power.

I have always been frugal with my rep giving and have always felt discriminating rep distribution should be worth more that say someone that practices "if you rep me I rep you". So if you get rep form me it will be because I thought your post was really good in some fashion. ^5

Taco John
10-22-2005, 03:37 PM
The rep system isn't perfect. Never has been. I'll probably turn that line off anyway, as it pulls an extra call to the server that we don't need. I just had to revert a bunch of stuff to the absolute default setting so I could root out the thread posting error, which is fixed so far as I can tell.

Whenever a new post was made no matter where you could find in at a glance in user CP.

Nah... No favoritism. Check out Crush Girl's rep. If there were favoritism, she'd be able to crack some skulls.

The system is currently weighted in favor of length of time here and number of posts...

For every 365 days, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power. For every For every 10000 posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

For every 100,000 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.

I have been considering changing the final option, but have decided to wait until after I delete "rep whoring" threads to do that. Which I'd ad, would knock Alec's rep down immensely. But people seem to enjoy them so I figure what the hell, let them have their fun. Also I'd ad, I am trying to combat a situation where a new person can come in and have a full rep bar by the end of the week.

The only part of rep I honestly care about is the comments anyway. The rest is a bunch of fluff that means little over the long haul. It's just a diversion that adds a little spice to the board. If rep meant anything anyways, I'd have a bunch of it thanking me for upgrading the board and working out the bugs instead of people starting threads about whether the changes are good enough for them or not.

Rep should have never been weighted. All positive rep should be worth one point, unless you're in the black, then your rep should mean nothing. If you max out your rep bars, then you get two points. That's it. Then all posts and all posters would be measured equally, except the canal water sucking trolls.

Instead you've decided to take a poster who's been banned for misconduct on three separate occasions and make him the most influential member of the community. I guess since we all understand that rep is often reciprocol, you figure that will improve his pitiful average of one rep dot per 11,500 posts.

The criteria you selected to justify this misguided act of charity makes you look more prejudiced, not less. There are 1176 active members on this board, but only 13, a scant .011 percent, meet the requisite of 10,000 posts. Even worse, the join dates listed on this board are inaccurate after the various resets.

So, whatever, Isaac, run a rigged game if that makes you happy. I wish you the best.

I'll fix the rep system. I agree that it's probably not the best system as it is. However, to make things fair and even, I'm going to have to do things like delete the rep whore thread and reset the rep that was dished out in there.

I'll start a poll on monday and we'll figure this thing out as a community.

People are taking rep too seriously. I mean, it is a little weird that mock has more rep power then even you, but who cares? The only good thing about rep is the comments. My two cents is, you should do away with rep altogether, or at least don't make it visible on the forum. Meaning, people can leave rep (and comments, which are the only really good/funny thing about rep) but nobody has the little blocks by their names.

Please tell me if you are able to upload avatars...

I tried this morning, I'm still getting the "unable to move/copy file" message.

What is the rep whore thread???

I have been considering changing the final option, but have decided to wait until after I delete "rep whoring" threads to do that. Which I'd ad, would knock Alec's rep down immensely. But people seem to enjoy them so I figure what the hell, let them have their fun. Also I'd ad, I am trying to combat a situation where a new person can come in and have a full rep bar by the end of the week.

/just sayin...
BS, Taco, most of my rep has come from actual posts. Every now and then I will get a rep whore thread rep but mostly its just because people love me.

Dont get me wrong, I dont care how big my stick is, its not the size of the boat, its the motion in the ocean, I just found it curious that Sassafras, who has exactly 4 months longer tenure than me and a couple thousand posts only, has a higher rep stick.

Whatever though, its all in how you use it ;D

Just get rid of rep. Leave the rep thing for comments, but take away the point system all together. This gets the people on the board back to posting not for rep, but for their opinions.

I do enjoy the comments, and really that's the only thing that concern's me. Instead of having it "Rep" Call it Post Comments, have for positive and negative but no actual points given. Seems to me, we all like the comments, most could really give a **** about the points. So just ge rid of the points.

Problem solved, everyone is happy.

A quick glance at the member list (sorted by join date) explains why Sass has one more rep point than you do, Alec... your join date is October 29. In a week, you'll be getting another power point.

Seems a reasonable point, I only ever read the comments, didn't realise there was a point system in place. Unless you're talking about orange blobs?

I have a suggestion TJ unless it's something that already exsists and I just haven't noticed. The shark tank has a spell check under the post box so you don't need to re-read your whole post. It opens a small window with your post in it and mispelled words are in red. You can fix everything in that window and preview or submit when done. Just a thought.

I think you may have to limit to 200-300 max at a time here in your ADMINCP, open up one of the messages that say
"mysql_connect(): Too many connections"

Limit it to 200 or so and all they will get is a server busy msg please try again later, much better than the board going down completely

:yep: so someone that has been here for 3-4 years but posts once in a blue moon has more rep power than me simply because they have been here longer? I dont like that because of all the rival fans(chargers, raiders, cheifs) get actual rep power even though they dont post here regularly because their team routinely sucks.....

For every 100,000 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.
This is a typo, maybe? I just checked my reputation points, and it is at 200 something. Based on that, I might get a second reputation-altering point in about 4035. I hope they've built a better Viagra by then.

If you upload them at a pic storage site like Picshome.com it will assign a URL for each of your pics then you can copy the url and paste it in the image window here which is the little yellow box with the mountains on it. Hopefully TJ will have the upload pics feature fixed soon. Everything else seems to be working great.
