Is the points system gone with this new page layout?
Yes.. we don't have the points system now since it was a "made for vBulletin" thing but there is a way to give a post a thumbs up. I plan to let the software design team know that a points system is a really cool thing and see if we can get something like that reinstated down the road.
Of course not having the point system does have advantages
Here here !!! Jeff, if u forget to ask them about it, i promise not to remind you..
Ask them what??? I forgot...
Boooooo I liked the points. What was wrong with the points?
You probably covered this as well - what about OTBS? Is that out too?
OTBS is alive and kicking.
I see a "Rating" box at the top-right of the posts. It looks similar to the point system we had but I can't find a way to Rate a post.. any info on this.. Good job so far on the new platform..
The points system as we knew it in vBulletin is out for now but we do have a thumbs up feature.. in the bottom right of each post is a brown thumb icon that allows you to give the post a thumbs up. The rating at the top right is the number of thumbs up the post has received.
This is more" good post" oriented than "good member" oriented but maybe it's a better system.. I guess time will tell.
If you notice towards the bottom of a post, in the area of Reply, to the left of WIKI, there is a thumbs up icon. When you mouse-over it, it says "If this is a great post, give it a thumbs up". When you click on it, it will enter a number in sequence. I tried it on your post and now it shows a number.
Hope this helps ypou.
Yeah, I guess the advantage of no point system is that we can get lazy, and not do as good a job of showing Qview?
Kinda like playing ball, and not keeping score------OOOOps, how's that ankle?
The OTBS is alive and well, just as Brian mentioned. However, the criteria has changed.
OTBS Nomination Criteria
Isn't that how the world is turning? We're all winners.. Ughh
Ok, I see what it's all about.. I was looking at my post when I came up with the question and therefore did'nt see the aswer staring at me. Thanx
Yeah...why would someone not like the points?
I was at a loss before about exactly how one achieved the points, explanations notwithstanding-did some mystery person decide you earned points and clicked a box? So when the green box went from one to two you did good? Maybe this is a good development.
It was ambiguous to a new person. I never got a good explanation, although it may have been spelled out in some fine print I didn't understand.
I know what you mean.. I hate that mentality. My wife got into an argument with someone at another forum a while back about how everyone is smart in their own way and she was saying.."no actually their not. I have met some really stupid people in my life and sometimes meet folks like that on a daily basis."
I finally told her to give it up.. nowadays it is not politically correct to say that one person is better or smarter than another.
I was raised to believe if you work hard you succeed. If you don't work hard then you're probably gonna be a loser.
Oh.. don't even get me started..
I'm not against the points system at all.. that one we was using just happened to be a "made for vBulletin" system and now that we are on a different platform.. well.. you get the idea.
you strive for reward .
points were a reward.
i do not like having to change my browser to make things work!!!
i have spent more time on this forum than any others.
i have learned as much from this forum than any other
i have helped as much on this forum as any other.
as of now I do not like it!!
no smiley faces to give on this system???
The idea, as i see it, is that when you read a post that you like or one that contains info that you need or some one has acknowledged as helpful, then be sure to give it a thumbs up. Now we all have to remember that the thumb is way down there in the right hand corner
Morkdach.. I understand, I really do.
