What is reputation?
« on: October 10, 2008, 05:48:52 PM »

Why this evasion about a site feature? Dex avoided to answer my direct questions about this feature. A clear direct explaination of how it works will help. Do Mods have some control over it?

Today I saw on my profile that I received a positive reputation from Kban and a negative one from Dex. What is this? how do I give reputation to others?

Alas such a button cannot be viewed by mere foot soldiers(like me).  ;D

Also the gree button lies - it said "Dextrous has no influence".  ::)

this is useless..plz realise if you indeed have some special powers, the feature looses all meaning for many on this DG anyway, who trusts your judgement anyway?

SOS kban!!

kban, can you please explain what exactly is this feature?

Dex,
It just became visible. A blue heart-like icon :)

BTW, why can I not give me reps? I reserve the right to be awed by my insight  ;D

fyi...like many other things, this feature is also in test mode. however, unlike the karma system, this has a lot of inbuilt features that'll prevent abuse...like a wait time, cannot give +ve/-ve to the same person repeatedly, etc.

why such features? why should others "rate" me stealthily?

i think these features prevent people from agreeing/disagreeing openly. if some one disagrees with me, i would like to know it.

for instance, there were quite a few who TD-ed me recently without a single post stating that they had different views!  ;D

I think some agreed with you and some disagreed with you.. which is not shown to you.

However, i think there is a bug in the software or inconsistency ..

My profile page says reputation = 393 whereas the repuation power shows 13 in the posts here.

This tells me that a factor of 30 is being used to process the raw data to a finalized test score  :P

As I saw in an electoral poster years ago in Kolkata, when voting machines were being introduced: "Press the bottom and vote.."

In this case, if someone presses the bottom (heart shaped bottom on top of that), your reputation goes up!  ;D ;D ;D.

Hey, by reputation I meant reputation (an abstract category) and nothing else.

Just as a Test I disagreed (to send a negative reputation) to WN and Dex two of the people I met. :)

Let me know if it did take effect.

the # on profile is supposed to be different than the # here...essentially three things are taken into account--user feedback (new and if log is to be believe last few actions from 2007), # of posts (as of now), activity level
