Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

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).

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 reputation icon/link.
  • 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 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:

v3.8.001 : First release for vb 3.8.

*wish list*

A way to make a certain User Group "reputation free" for those people who take it too seriously and want to be removed from the system.

Great work, Thanks!

Thats correct, since you cannot give half a reputation point.

Right now, the usergroup multiplier supersedes that of the forum multiplier. Is there a way to have the opposite?

For instance, I'd like reps in Forum A to be 30% of a member's rep power.
Forum B can be default with 100%.
Forum C is more important, so I want that to have 150% of a member's rep's power.

But I have different usergroups that carry more weight than others. So I want to give Group X 120%, Group Y just default, no changes..

Obviously, Group Y would be subject to whatever % allowed by the forum. The way you have it now, Group X however, will rep 120% in all forums. What I'd like is for Group X's rep power (which is increased over the default by 20%) to be subjected to the weight of the forum.

It would be like this...

Group Y in Forum A = 1.0 x 0.3 = 0.3 (or 30%) of the member's rep power
Group Y in Forum B = 1.0 x 1.0 = 100% of the member's rep power
Group Y in Forum C = 1.0 x 1.5 = 1.5 (or 150%) of the member's rep power

Group X in Forum A = 1.2 x 0.3 = 0.36 (or 36%) of the member's rep power
Group X in Forum B = 1.2 x 1.0 = 1.2 (or 120%) of the member's rep power
Group X in Forum C = 1.2 x 1.5 = 1.8 (or 180%) of the member's rep power

Right now...the way it is set up...all groups would be the same as Group Y. I can only adjust "caps", but that doesn't seem to work with providing the weighted adjustments of usergroups.

Only by editing the code.

Would that be a consideration for a future feature?

No, not really. One has to override the other, and my choice was for usergroup to override forum. Im happy with that choice.
