Not Supported Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

This modification adds a whole set of extra checks whenever members try and give reputation to posts.

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 Forum Based 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).

New in v3.7.002

User Ban List
An option to ban individual members from being able to give reputation to anyone.

Custom Usergroup Based Multiply Factors
These are basically the same as the forum based custom factors, but based on the giving members usergroup. Note that these will override any forum based multiplier.


All settings are in vBulletin Options > Enhanced Reputation Checks


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

Points to note ;
  • Posts that you cannot give reputation on will not display the give reputation icon/link (3.7.002 onwards).
  • In order to give negative reputation to a post a comment must be supplied - this is part of default vb 3.6 onwards 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.


History:

v3.7.001 : First release for vb 3.7.
v3.7.002 : Added usergroup factors & user ban list.

Hi, this may be a stupid question, but does the new 3.7 version mean that the 3.6 version will stop working when I upgrade my forum, once 3.7 final is out?

No. The old version will run quite happily if you upgrade your forum with it installed.

  1. Anyway to have members giving negative rep remain anonymous, while still leaving a comment? We find some members shy away from giving negative reps to popular members due to fear of being ganged up on afterwards.

  2. Can you add something that recalculates the rep points/power if the variables in the "enhanced rep checks" are changed..ie changing the multiply factor from 1 to 2, so all current scores are updated accordingly?

  3. Instead of a user spread, how about a quota limit? ie "You have already given your quota of reputation to this user. Try again in 30 days.." etc. The user spread is good, but some members just start repping "new members" just so they can get back to repping their "group"

Great hack...love the power cap.

FYI, after 3.7 gold is released this mod will be updated with new options.

1. Usergroup based factors - the same as the forum based custom factors, but based on the giving members usergroup. Note that these will override any forum based multiplier.

2. User ban list - the option to ban individual members from being able to give reputation to anyone.

3. Posts that you cannot give reputation on will no longer display the give reputation icon/link.
