Title: Community Update [25/08/2015]
Post by: Tom on August 24, 2015, 07:35:46 PM
Hey guys,

Just a few small changes and updates to let you know about today, as I've posted around the forums recently I am now openly allowing name changes, please drop me a private message with all the relevant information and why you want your name changed and I'll review it. If you've had your name changed already, I cannot guarantee I'll do it again. That being said think long and hard before messaging me. :)

On another note I've stumbled across a cool feature of simpleportal which allows the creation of new pages with cool designs, in the past people have suggested reworking the help tab to include more relevant information, we can now do that and once this page is complete I'll link it on the homepage. You can find the under construction version of the page here:

https://forum.moparscape.org/index.php/page,FAQ.html/

If you'd like to help please let me know, I'd appreciate that a lot! :)

Finally onto the elephant in the topic, I'm polling the return of the reputation system, while this poll doesn't determine anything it's merely to grasp the communities view on the matter. The results will be available after the poll has expired, I'd suggest everyone vote.


Thanks :)

If there is a member that has been logged off for a long time and is not active anymore can you take there name by any chance? Or would that lead to many problems?

I like the idea of having the rep system back. Maybe a good change for it would be 1 point for all levels of rep. Considering how easy it was to get 200 rep when you had hundreds able to give out 13+ at a time.

I'd rather have a thanks system over reputation, but I don't really care if it's maintained correctly.

This whole poll thing is confusing, some of you can see it, some of you can't and you're all identical as far as permissions go. :) I'll look into it now.

If there is a member that has been logged off for a long time and is not active anymore can you take there name by any chance? Or would that lead to many problems?

Let me know via PM and I'll look into it, depends entirely on the account. I've done it before though.

Either this or increase the cap

increase cap to 2000, make it go in increments of 1 or scrap rep entirely and PLEASE for the love of god add a "thanks" system

Honestly, I don't really see it being a bad thing nor a good thing if it was added back. From what I see, a lot of people want it back while others don't care if it is or isn't. I personally do not care, but I do think a thanks system would be nice to have in play.

What do you want from me? I contacted the relevant folk, they saw it, and they didn't fix it. That's all, really. Those who could vote - Thanks for voting.

That would sure lead to problems
Not quiet, I've seen many accounts with like 1 post that have last logged in like 7 years ago.
Guest accounts, you can already take their names by creating a new account.

If anything just do what GitHub does with their name squatting policy (tailored for the forum).


Edit: why don't we have the "remove post" option anymore, just noticed it.
An example of why this would be a problem is because I'm going to take Regex's name, but I'm sure only a handful of users know who he was.

Obviously oldfag names shouldn't be taken, but an account with a single post that most likely in the help section shouldn't be off limits.

Also Tom is slowly taking all of our rights way. The latest step was removing the remove post option, I hear he is going to start selling the forum database to Microsoft so we can get better integrated with Cortana.
