i don't care, if with post counts enabled, peoples goal in life becomes getting more posts than your rival then ban them.

but i haven't met many people like that.

I would say it encourages posts more but not spam, if they spam just ban them.

Two things i would like to mention.

Mister V suggested a karma/respect system. Members can add or remove karma/respect points to any members.

A global shoutbox. Appears at the top of the board on every page. It can be turned off by anyone who doesnt want to see it.

What's your thoughts on these two things?

I saw that the respect system works...but only if it's made right.

I saw the karma stars on gtanet - it isn't really effective IMO.

The best I saw was: next to the name/avatar, or near it is a smilie face. What it is depends on how much pluses/minuses has that member got. Each member can "rate" every other member once a day.

For example: if some guy is behaving badly (the one I saw was flaming everyone he could reach) the smilie face gets red/angry.

I like them both.

and, I too would like to see the post counts back

On VCU with the post counts if I had an idea, I would post it. to try to be a more popular member with a high post count

On G-U, if I have an idea, I dont usually post it because its to much for no reward, I mean, we don't have a way to see who the Top poster is because theres no post count. Sure we have the weapons, but what if we have 2 people have the same weapon, whos ahead.

I dont know if it appeals to you or not, but I like to see who the top poster is and how many posts he has, or try to set a goal for the number of posts to get, like 1500 or something.

But i dont know why i am writing this, pretty much everyone will just skip over it.

Yes this is a very good way of doing it. The problem remains though if i can find an ipb mod that does this and one that is compatible. I wouldn't have the time to code something like that.

The trouble is, that mentality leads people to post for the sake of it. Most of you are mature enough to post decent posts, but some will spam.

i see your point, but you guys should be a bit more harsher on spam, like if you see it, take a life, dont just say (stop spamming), cause they willl contiue to do it if you just say that. But if you take action, they might learn there lesson

Yes but alot of the time, the poster does not believe that is spam and will begin starting riots. It's happened before.

ok, well it was worth a shot

but how about this, you try the post counts for say a week, if the spamming increases, change it back, if it stays the same, or decreases, and the G-U community becomes more active, keep it that way

Firstly it will have a time limit on it as to how often you can post in it. And secondly, users who do abuse it will be banned from it and probably loose a life.

I voted no because I like the weapons, it keeps you guessing as to what is next. I don't think it matters if it's ambigious. Who cares if you're 5 posts ahead of someone else? The weapon's are more or less obvious, who's got a higher post count. A pistol is quite obviously a better weapon than a slingshot.

The karma system sounds interesting, I just wouldn't want to see it being used as a tool to 'dis' somebody who doesn't deserve it.

I have heard of karma system. But the problem is, when someone pissed you off, you could just minus somebody's karma system like ringwraith said.

Here's my opinion about this:

- That weapons system is way better then post counts, keep it happy.gif
- A respect rating would be great, but it has to be worked out perfectly
two little suggestions about how to work this out:
  • Work with a respected users list, the more users who respect you, the higher your respect rating (RR) is. If a very respected user puts you on his respected users list, your respect rating rises more then if someone with a RR of 0 adds you to his/her list.
  • Also work with a respect rating, but give points to posts, if a user posts a very interesting post, he can get a higher RR. The mods award the points.
- Personally I don't like this skin either... I think it's too dark, and it looks really messy in my browser (Opera). I prefered the VCU skin, much lighter and less cluttered. (some tips to make it better: lighter colours, no shades, thin dividers (1-2px thick)) A skin can be very important, I can't help it, but I feel less tempted to visit this forum since the skin changed.
