Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS, which is now in beta. ocPortal 9 will be superseded by Composr 10.

Head over to compo.sr for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.


Any plans on adding a reputation system to the ocf?

I have seen this in a few other scripts like smf, mybb and now in ipb3.

Might be hard to explain but you can rep a post and or topic  with a positive rep if its a good post or topic, or you could rep it negative if its a bad post or topic.  The reason some forums have it is to teach people how to post good post or encourage good posts, instead of posts that do not add that much value to the topic.

On the IPB version you can limit the amount of rep given for either positive or negative or you can even turn one off while leaving the other one.


Oh and of cause members have an over all rep in their profile, here is what a positive rep looks like in a profile.


Here is what negative looks like

I can see that this might be useful to some people. I'd also say it overlaps with the purpose of our points system a bit.

Don't take this post as a approval or disapproval of this feature or anything else - I'm just replying off-the-top-of-my-head.

  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Is this similar in nature to the Karma system some boards have?

Ah ok, You might be right about the points thing but how many people give points for good posts?

That and those members that would actually give points for posts would be loosing points and there is no way that I know of to take away points for bad posts.


Not trying to be negative just stating  my opinion.

There were some at IPB when this was first being tested that got upset at being negative repped  so thats why they put a limit on negative.  There were some like the one in the negative rep screen shot that wanted negative, that member still has a goal of 1000 neg rep, not that she is posted bad things she is negative repping her self.

Oh speaking of repping your self thats an option on the IPB version as well, some do think its stupid to be able to rep your own posts but IPS's staff said you can turn that off, oh and some do like the idea.

Oh and to go back to the points comparison thing, you do not loose any reps when you rep some one s post, they just gain what ever rep you gave them.

Oh and this is not an option of the IPB version but is of other rep systems an that is rep reason. which means you have to give a reason why you are repping the person they way you are. Some thought that would add to flaming or neg repping some one who neg repped you. but I think it could would as long  as you only saw the reason not who gave you the rep.

Oh and as of right now with the IPB version you have no idea who repped you, many want it that way to prevent rep revenge like stated above.

Its the same thing. Karma and rep system are the same thing just 2 names for the same thing.

I like the rep/karma system myself over a warning system. However I like it to have moderation controlls and where you have to leave a reason for positive/negative rep for moderation review. Mods can decide if the reason was valid or not and if not valid, change the rep and neg. rep the other.

But yeah, some like it, some don't.

Yep I like your idea on how to work it, specially on a negative rep. Probably will not need to do it for positive though but might not be a bad idea to give a reason for that as well. :)

Yes, I agree. If it can be done properly as an add on, this may be the best route. That way you don't have to have it if you don't want it, but if you do, you can get it.

Personally I would rather see a badge system implemented. I may have Chris work on this in the future if it is not something he would like to add to the core.

Members receive little Icon images (badges) for participation in many different areas of the site these would display above there avatar or name in the forum or profile block.

They could also be setup for different reward systems based on the site content. e.g. if a graphics site user would get a badge for submitting 10 images 25 images, 50 images.

Have ten people add you to your friends list you get a badge 25 people etc.

10 forum posts get a badge 100 forum posts get a upgraded badge etc. I've seen this implemented on a few forums and blogs. One would need to create there own badges and reward system but i think this would be a neat addition to ocportal.

Here is an example:

New forum badges and what they mean. - The Melting Pot - Where All Glass Addicts Melt Together

I have not played around with the award system so this may already be a feature.

Yep was thinking of the awards system when I read your post.
You would need need to change the forum template to get it to work but should work I think.
Although never used the awards system my self not not sure exactly how it works but I do like your idea.
