Posted 24 June 2015 - 12:23 PM

As part of the Spring Update, we opened a member suggestion thread to see what sort of things we could do to make your experience on the site better. Two of the most popular requests were finding ways to encourage people to make greater use of the 'Like' system, and improving our member promotion system, which previously only took a member's posts into account.
 
While the update is an ongoing process, I'm very pleased to announce that as of today, you'll be able to receive promotions to higher members group based on your reputation! From this point forward you'll be able to progress through the higher member groups simply by reaching the appropriate number of 'Likes', the values of which are listed at the bottom of this post. And yes, you can still attain higher ranks through post count alone, with the number of posts required for each promotion remaining unchanged.
 
On a more somber note, however, we need to make clear that while attempting to 'boost' reputation has always been frowned upon, from this point on doing so will be met with disciplinary action. Any form of basic boosting, including but not limited to openly requesting 'likes', offering to trade likes for likes, or deliberately starting threads which encourage all participants to 'like' all other posts, will be punished according to the scale below: the use of multiple accounts, while already prohibited, to boost likes will be met with far more severe repercussions. For this reason, moving from New Members to Members is still going to be based on post count alone, and New Members will no longer be able to submit 'Likes'. In short: be friendly, be social, and be generous, but don't be an idiot. If you are in any way unsure as to whether something constitutes boosting, feel free to contact a member of the moderating team and we'll be happy to let you know: after all, we want you to make use of the new system, not be afraid of it!
 
Begging for likes (1st offence) - one warning point, removal of reputation up to current member group boundary.
Begging for likes (2nd offence) - one warning point, removal of reputation up to previous member group boundary and demotion if post count not met.
Begging for likes (3rd offence) - one warning point, total removal of reputation and reset to Member usergroup.
Multi-accounting to boost - one warning point for each boosted like up to a maximum of 5, total removal of reputation and reset to Member usergroup.
 
On a much more cheerful note, however, we come to our last change. For as long as members have been achieving the rank of Dedicated, they have been asking for a higher usergroup to aim for. I'm therefore incredibly excited to announce that we're opening up our Legendary Members usergroup to everyone! As a particularly special group, we want our Legends to represent the pinnacle of achievement and standing within the community: therefore, you won't be able to gain promotion simply by posting, but will instead need to accumulate a suitably epic reputation level.
 
The reputation values for promotion to each member group are listed below. Good luck, and happy posting!

I noticed Twam's update earlier, so it's nice to be about to say now this is a good idea, and I hope it continues to inspire members to post high quality posts and to be the best members they can.

Quality posts finally matter! :D

Quality posts don't necessarily matter. Infact, you just have to post something agreeable with the Community. Quality still matters, imo, but that's not the only way to achieve likes. A lot of members make quality posts, majority of them have no likes. You just gotta get people to agree with you on a like-basis.

 

That said, it looks like this reputation system will work dandy. Should update the site rules with this, just in case. For any new members who join the community and don't know this exists. That's if they even read the rules...

 

I'm already over halfway to Legendary! ^_^

I just Noticed that the Like names have changed. Like my "Looked up to" has changed to "Inspiring". That Change needs to be put in the Ranks and Colors thread too. I don't know what all has changed with that either. I just see a few new names for like Counts.

My only concern os the "Creating a Topic" to farm likes. Myself included have at times made various posts not with the intent of people liking it, but to achieve awareness and draw members to a particular issue/view or otherwise content that the OP has found important.

How will the mods judge what type of post or created topic is of "farming intent". Personally I am not worried about that for myself, but I feel ot's something that would be a good guideline to understand so that members don't make a mistake here and there.

Posts that don't deserve likes get likes, and post that do deserve like don't get them. Hypothetically, if this post got a like,  it wouldn't have deserved it; everyone should agree on this. 

 

Undeserving posts do get many likes: Posts such as funny gifs, videos, and close-minded opinions that others happen to agree with

 

Not liking funny gifs and the like will stop the funny, AND I LIKE MY FUNNY. They don't require much effort, but still, half of them are genius.

Put simply, boosting intent for these kinds of posts will be if they're something alone the lines of 'I'm making this topic specifically to boost likes, and I'll give likes to everyone who posts here if they like my post as well', or 'Hey, I'm bored, so I made this topic just so you can give me likes'. There really is no hidden agenda here and we're certainly not going to start second-guessing people's intentions. We're talking open, overt and deliberate attempts to gain reputation without putting any effort into actually creating something worth liking.

 

If you post something that's good, and interesting, and people appreciate it enough to give you a like? We'll notice once it starts attracting attention - we do read everything, after all - but so long as it actually contributes something to the forums, then we don't care why you've done it, because even if you've only created it to gain reputation it's still adding value to the site. Shakespeare wrote for money, not art, after all!

If you maintain your current like/post ratio, you'll need about 7486 or so posts before you become legendary.

 

So good luck with that.

With a name like Like Cabooster..,.you'll be Legendary in no time. On a serious note though, what TD said is true. If you can commit to following the same posting style I do you would be better off.

I'm not trying to say that you don't contribute in any way, but you could be more detailed and informational with your responses. For example howoften do you ever see me respond or start a post that isn't at least 300+ words long or like a small novel? That is why my ratio is almost 1:1 in numbers.

I for one am really glad this change has been brought about. We've had some incredible members here, and not all of them have been staff. I think it's great that we now have a genuine way we can honor our top-quality posters. Great change. :thumbup:

WOL, your name was purple when I woke up, grey when I got home from school and now as prepare to go to sleep in about an hour you are purple again. 
 
anyway onto the point of this post. Twin I will try to make my posts much longer. Your feedback is much awesome and I feel like it is going to make me a much more valuable member of the community. So I don't spent many many life times making thousands of posts. Because you see I really really want to become yellow. Redstar who lives in Teyrnside or whatever who also happens to be Scottish not like he is every going to admit it! He gave me a taste of power! And no this isn't an attempt to drag out the post at all..........

 

I will try to make my posts much longer as Twin said some of them came be quite short and the name Cabooster can only go so far. I need to make them much more detailed with more logic and reasoning inside to people eat my opinion and like it. Then perhaps they could like the post or I just start posting funny yet irrelevant pictures, WOL, works for most people  Point is I am really going to try to extended my posts pointlessly.

 

 

Okay, better get started on making this post longer..... wait, I already did, this stuff is easy! Legendary member here I come! :D
