I have a favor to ask from all members.

Postby OldGuy » 14 Oct 2018, 16:27

Many members have already noted a previous offer I made called

ForumCoin Donations Offer For Improving Quality Content
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=20620

I have been pleased to donate awards to many members since making this offer. The awards are based on improved reputation point scores, but more scores are falling instead of improving, including for many I have previously awarded. The overall average site reputation score was above 10% a few months ago, but the site averages have been sliding downward for the past several weeks.

If you see high quality content,
please give it a positive reputation point.


I'd be very happy to be able to continue rewarding those with improving scores.

I do give positive ratings but may be we all sometimes just forget. However, I hope members now start giving positives for good content and responses.
Have a good night !

Does giving a reputation point reduce on forum coins a member has?

No. The positive reputation points have no affect on your earnings. They have no cash value. You can't spend them and you can't trade them. Giving out either positive or negative reputation points do not affect your own finances. However, there may be some penalty for receiving a negative reputation point.

The only value I have been able to find for the reputation point system is that it is a guide to let you know how the rest of the ForumCoin community views your content. If another member views your content as high quality, they can give you a positive reputation point. If another member finds your content of low value or offensive, they can give you a negative reputation point. Most members accumulate increasing counts of positive reputation points over time as long as they are contributing decent value content.

Most members do not like to give out negative reputation points because it can create conflict and hard feelings between members. If you find offensive content or something that is not contributing value to the topic, it may be better to use the exclamation point in the triangle near the upper right corner of the post to report it, and let the administration deal with it.

If you divide your reputation points by your total number of posts and read the results as a percentage, you can see your "score". The site average for all active members has been running very close to 10%, which means you need to get at least one positive reputation point for every ten posts just to be average. A low score is actually a message from the rest of the ForumCoin community telling you that you need to do better. A negative reputation point screams it.

The overall value of the reputation point system is that it lets each member know how the rest of the community reacts to their written content. It is not a direct indicator of quality, but just an opinion. It is worth watching.

May be some members think that not giving someone positive rating might help their own cause more?

Some of the new members might not even aware about this "upvote" function. Will use it more often when seeing a quality post for sure. Thanks for reminding!

I think it is just right that we give considerations to those who are really taking the time to give their helpful opinions. The truth is when I started here I always give reputation but as I go along I tend to forget doing. Thank you for reminding us. Actually it can also promote friendship among the members.

I did not forget it and sometimes I wish I could have more time to write another type of content. I also try to give quality answers to most of the posts :). lets see if this weekend I can post some new and useful stuff here.

It's hard to get one and more easier to give one.. But if we don't receive , then it feels bad.. So, many of the users don't bother to give one. :yawn:

Just out of curiosity, has this request of yours made any visible difference?

Based on the difference in accumulated reputation points and site averages both before and after this post, it appears this has made a difference. More members seem to be giving out reputation points as they encounter high quality content. Percentages are again on the rise and I have been able to give out more awards with those increases. The overall site averages have actually improved for the first time since January in recent weeks.
