They're actually bionic and when not joined at the hip, make a nice pair of bookends!

I was thinking of replacing the much abused karma buttons with an Advanced Reputation System... what thinks you?

Introduction
A full Karma System replacement, with adjustable reputation settings and an in-post rate/comment popup box.

Features
o Reputation sent is now based on the giver's reputation
o Popup box can be activated in posts wherein reputation can be sent with a comment
o Members can view their own reputation by going to action=profile;sa=reputation
o :: Moderators (or anyone with permission) can delete reputation actions on this screen
o Reputation can be given per post, per thread, and on registration
o and more!

Okay it werks like this, um like...  whistle:

You get: -

1 point per post
3 point for each thread started

Users gain 1 power for every 100 point and 1 bar for every 1000 points

The different levels are: -

has no influence.
barely matters.
is working their way up.
might someday be someone...
is on the verge of being accepted.
is a rising star!
has a powerful will.
is a force to reckon with.
has great potential!
has an aura about them.
is leading the good life!
is awe-inspiring!

You can click on the little heart at the bottom of each post to agree or disagree and therefore give the poster points...

Or summat like that anyway...  Shrugs:

Dear Admin,

I notice that The Library offers "Read a good book or watched a film that you can recommend? Post it here. Also the photography thread."

I note that the 'Photography Thread' has been unchanged since February 2008, in the days of the late lamented Mr Growler.

This blatantly misleading heading is a disgrace and in my opinion the reason we only seem to be attracting weirdos and misfits to the forum.

Something should be done about it.
