Just curious to know

Hi Guys,

Its nothing to do with the technical stuff. I am just curious to know how and who decided the position of the members as starting,junior member and senior member.

Have i improved or it is based on how frequently i visit and number of posts made by me.

Regards,

Nagaraj

I'm not sure why I didn't do it to begin with, but if a negative should surface we can always turn it back off.

Ratings are online.

To the best of my understanding you use the "Rate Post" at the bottom of each post to rate it, and based on the rating, the author of the post will have their score updated accordingly.

Five stars: increases score by 2
Four stars: increases score by 1
Three stars: no change in score
Two stars: decreases score by 1
One star: decreases score by 2

Now lets all kick back and see how fast MSIMakers score shoots through the roof!

Actually, the titles and values are those provided by default with the message board software:

1 Star (New Member) Posts <=15
2 Stars (Starting Member) Posts <=30
3 Stars (Junior Member) Posts <=45
4 Stars (Senior Member) Posts <=60
5 Stars (Super Member) Posts <=90

There is also an option to allow rating of posts which contribute to your "score" that can be used in calculating member ratings. It is off right now, but we can give it a shot if there is interest. Anyone care to utilize this feature?

I suppose it depends on what the rating means?

Personally, I think this would help the rating be more objective. At times, some people just answer anything (whether or not they know the answer) just to get their rating up. Others post questions all the time, never try to help anyone else out, and don't even bother posting the outcome of their problem for subsequent visitors.

If the rating should reflect a positive contribution to the website, this feature can't be bad?

It seems to be working, although I don't think I can rate postings in this particular forum?

The only problem I can see with the scoring system is that a single malicious user could negatively rate every one of another user's postings - maybe even more than once? I'd try, but I don't know who to pick on!?!

Votes for a post are tracked, which is a bit of a deterant as they are accountable for the rating. You can see who voted for a post by pressing the rating link. And no, you cannot rate the same post more than once.

Hi Guys,

I feel the rating should be based on the contribution to the forum and the senior members can rate it.For example if i have raised a query on self healing and if i get an answer for that.When a new member raise a question on that.I should be able to convey what i have learnt.

Thats the way one can improve and its the fair way.

That's good - except I can't find the "rating link" that you referred to? It's probably just me being dim!

I'm sorry about your "-1" rating - I had to do my testing on someone, and thought you might take it better than most! I didn't read the post, so please don't take it personally!

It could be limited to moderators, but that would put a lot more work on our moderators who already offer much of their valuble time. We'll keep it like this for now and see how it goes.

I’m devastated! Here I go trying to be a nice guy and… (just kidding)

You can view the ratings by clicking the "View" button when you hit the link to rate a post.

Maybe it's just me, but I can't see a "View" button?[:(]

Not to mention that I can't hit the "rate post" link for my own posts, and therefore can't see who rated them.

Opps. Disregard that- uUpon closer inspection, it appears that only moderators see the "view" option.

If a newer version of the message board software enhances this feature, I'll upgrade but for now this is what we have to work with.

Better than nothing- or trouble?

Bob,

We can't be rated on grammar, punctuation, and spelling can we? I don't want to be negatively rated right out of existence :-)

I should hope content would be the deciding factor- or I'm going to be in as much trouble as you!
