What do you think? Add it? Keep it the way it is? Let me know! If you don't know what it is, please read below.

vBulletin's user reputation system provides a way of rating users based on the quality of their posts. Users on your forums can add or subtract reputation points from other users by clicking the reputation link in their posts. You can set restrictions on the giving and taking away of reputation points by users in your vBulletin options.

User reputations allow the users in your community to tell vBulletin which users are quality and which users are not. And in response to user feedback, vBulletin has the ability to label and reward users for the quality of their posts, as is indicated by their reputation.

You can label quality users by defining reputation levels in the User Repuation Manager. User reputation levels work very similar to user titles and user ranks in that they are an indicator of status that are displayed next to names in posts.

You can reward quality users by creating promotions on the Promotions page. Promotions are used to change a user's group memberships when they meet certain conditions, one of which can be their reputation level. Because forum permissions can be controlled with group memberships, a user's reputation in conjunction with promotions can be used to control a user's forum permissions. And so by using a combination of user reputations, promotions, and group permissions, you can enable your community to reward and punish good and bad posters on your forums.

Reputations are a cool thing because it lets newbs and lurkers know who's reputable and knowledgeable.. the problem is , if people dont participate in it and actually give rep points, everybody has low rep points and then we all look dumb ;) and as long as everyone knows that all members are important and we value each one, regardless of rep points, then it definately can be a fun and useful tool.

I'd say give it a try.. worse case scenario, we take it down if it doesnt work out.

but hardwork and bka get negative rep points all the time just because they arent Steeler fans! ;)

I guess we can give it a try. Members can share their comments once it's up and running. :D

screenshot of how to add/subtract to members reputations.. remember, subtracting from their reputation points is taking away from their reputation on the boards, so its not be taken lightly.. as in , just because you disagree w/ someones point of view on a topic, doesnt mean u necessarily start giving bad karma to them.

It's as easy as clicking on the thumbs up or thumbs down symbols u see in the screen shot.

click on the thumbnail to enlarge
