Change in the forum width/Reputation Mod

Unread postby dr210077 » Thu Oct 01, 2009 6:08 pm

You guys will probably have noticed that the width of the forum has shrunk significantly, this is due to some ongoing changes to the site which involve integrating the forum and the blog. The change in width is to bring the forum more closely in line with the blog, so that the site has a more unified feel.

Sorry for any inconvenience, hope you enjoy the new look :)

The change only affects users of the prosilver/aerogreen styles, as support for the other styles is being dropped in order to concentrate on the integration of the various elements of the site :)

For users of the prosilver style, I have added a reputation system. Prosilver users will notice that the user profile in posts now sports a thumbs up and thumbs down icon. They can use this to give reputation points to users based on posts, the more rep points a user gets, the more rep power they accrue. The more rep power a user has dictates how many rep points are awarded when they rate a post.

Awesome dr, I missed this feature from tAA. But, as you know, there is always room for improvement. I suggest a more prominent display of points on the user profile portion of each post, such as an icon approx. the size of a smiley such as a thumbs up/down and a number next to it, or integrated into it. If an up/dn icon is too complex to code, then just use a thumb up icon (other than the one for the link) and use negative sign on the subsequent number for those who have negative reputation; similar to what we have now but with an added icon.

I will have to investigate this usage at a later date, I have been very busy with relatives visiting and then my workload has increased to negate all my spare time lately; considering my NFL viewing time as well.

Appendage: I didn't see the bargraph style thing 'till I posted the above message. I suppose that works too.

User Wall has been added as has an edit time stamp for every "submitted" edit. It should be noted that the wall is only available to prosilver users and bbcode is not currently allowed in wall comments.
