Enhanced Reputation Checks

vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (10 votes - 4.90 average) Installs: 148
Released: 12 Dec 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 466
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

This modification is no longer supported.
It will remain available for download and use, but the thread is no longer monitored.

This modification adds a whole set of extra checks whenever members try and give reputation to posts. While this is technically a port of the vb 3.5 mod, this version (v2.xx) has been largely re-written for vB 3.6.x. The main features are ;

Require Positive Reputation Comment
Members must leave a comment in order to give a post positive reputation.

Reputation Power Cap
Sets the maximum reputation giving power for any member, as well as the default forum wide setting, it is possible to set different caps in specific forums. Please carefully read the setting notes on how to do this (examples are given).

Positive Reputation Multiply Factor
Any positive reputation given will be multiplied by the "Positive Reputation Multiply Factor" - See Custom Factors below.

Negative Reputation Multiply Factor
Similar to above - any negative reputation given will be multiplied by the "Negative Reputation Multiply Factor" - See below.

Custom Multiply Factors
As well as the default forum wide factor settings for positive and negative reputation, it is also possible to set custom values for specific forums. Again, please carefully read the setting notes on how to do this (examples are given).

Closed Threads Limit
Posts in closed threads, that exceed the given age, cannot be given reputation. It is possible to stop reputation being given on any post in a closed thread.

Open Threads Limit
Posts in open threads, that exceed the given age, cannot be given reputation. If you desire, it is possible to stop reputation being given on any post in an open thread.

Allow or Disallow List
A list of forums can be supplied and then reputation either be allowed only in those forums, or be disallowed only in those forums. It is also possible to stop reputation being given in any forum (basically suspending the reputation system).

All settings are in vBulletin Options > Enhanced Reputation Checks


Install
Unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

Upgrade from 3.5 version
If you currently have the 3.5 version of Enhanced Reputation Checks installed then you should make a note of your settings and then uninstall it. This version has a different product id so it is possible to run both versions - this should never be done (I'm not sure what would happen, but you really don't want to do it).

Points to note ;
  • In order to give negative reputation to a post a comment must be supplied - this is part of default vb 3.6 and cannot be changed by this modification.
  • If a member does not have permission to give negative reputation then any negative reputation they try and give will be set to zero - in default vb they ended up giving positive reputation.
  • If set, the vb fixed admin reputation value will still be multiplied by any Multiply Factors specified in this modification.
  • If the negative reputation factor is 0.5 (to replicate default vb) then there will be one minor difference, a member whose positive reputation power is 1 will have a negative reputation power of 0, in default vb this would be -1.
  • The reputation cap is [now] checked after any multiplication factors have been applied - so no member can give more than the set cap, no matter what factors are applied first.

GREAT mod.. ur a life saver!!

a quick question though...
in my forum i am having problem as mods checking the REP comments (not visible to users) and they tend to tip off users and hence conflict

is there any way i can make the comments visible to admins only

thanks in advance!!!!

Great work Paul, I have been searching for a way to disable reputation in individual forums (why isn't this standard in vBulletin????). Thanks for this, = rep

The other options are a great bonus as well.

Installed.

Does this mod include, or is there any way to include usergroup-specific limits on how many separate people can be given reputation in a day? One thing I've found annoying is that I can't override the default maximum number of times reputation can be given out in a day - I want a separate limit for my Moderators/Super Moderators compared to regular members.

Nobody said you should.

If you are happy running the 3.5 version then by all means carry on. A 3.6 specific version has been released because I will stop supporting all my 3.5 mods in 2007.

As far as I can see you are asking a question about vB functionality, not this modification, so you would be best posting that on the general forum.
