New Forum Features!

Post  Matthew Mercer on Fri Apr 17, 2009 10:13 pm

Hey, everyone!

As I'm sure you've noticed, there have been a few minor changes to the Forums. Let me go through these features real quick:

1) Forum Ranks - There are a new series of Titles/Ranks that forum members can attain based on their Post count. A fun little addition to the prestige of being around these halls longer than most.

2) Brawl Pts - A Point Score that is both based on the number of posts, threads created, comments on other's profiles, and length of time you've been with the forums. While sadly not fully retro-active (due to the feature only being instated a couple of months ago), this is a fun means of comparing your activities with other members beyond simple post count.

3) Friends/Foes - Within user profiles, there is not the option to friend or foe other forum members. This places them in an easy-to-keep lists based on whom you find awesome or otherwise. Adding friends also has the benefit of gaining Brawl Pts.

4) Notoriety - This is a Reputation system, allowing users to vote on other people's posts as a Good post, or a Bad one (increasing or decreasing that poster's Notoriety, respectively). You can find the + and - button on the far right of a Thread post. Also, if someone adds a very well thought out/funny/overall enjoyable post to that topic, the topic creator can "thank" them by clicking on the Thank button, adding 3 Notoriety points to that poster. Use this rather sparingly and when you feel it is earned, as I doubt you would give kudos to your friends for mentioning what they had for breakfast. Also, please try and be adult about voting, as any abuse will be reported and punished.

CRAP. I thought that minus was a scrolly thing, not a poll. DISCOUNT THAT NEGATIVE VOTE.

Mah bad. It made sense in my head at the time.

Yay, Because I have a low notoriety or whatever, I can't Notoriety you guys back.

Which is good because I was never going to use it.

Which also means Poochy can't Do it back too.

Darn. Had the points system thing been installed earlier, I'd have hella.

I like the rank though, especially since it's cyan colored. Though... what would it be if I wasn't a mod?

I don't understand how the "thanking post" works. I can't find where it is.

It should be to the right of your post and to the left of your avatar.

Edit: Technically, other people's avatars since you can't see it on your own unless someone gives you praise.

You mean when Kallin thanked me? lol

And I too am on to you

I'll check for that Smashbro

EDIT: This is my 300th post. Also, I know how to give Notoriety but there's is also a "Thanks" deal that makes the said post go green. Look on the party thread and you'll see what I mean. (bottom of the 2nd last page)

Yeah, I saw the green post and I thought you changed the color of it, but it must be the thanks thing... But how do you thank?
