Heresy Online uses the standard vBulletin reputation system to reward good quality posts and also punish or deter people from posting negative, inflammatory or otherwise questionable ones.

The reputation system uses two main components which you should be familiar with.

Reputation Level and Reputation Power.

Reputation Level is the total number of Reputation points you accrue. It decreases and rises each time someone leaves you negative or positive reputation. You can check your Reputation Level in your User CP panel or by clicking the "Give Reputation" button on any of your own posts. The default reputaion level for new members is 1 point.

Reputation Power is the amount of reputation you influence another poster's Reputation Level whenever you give it. When you positively rep someone you give them an amount of Reputation Level equal to your Reputation Power. Negative Reputation hits are for only half of your Reputation Power.

A user's Reputation Power is shown in their posting profile as a number in parentheses.

Using your user CP you can check to see the last five reputation marks against you. Green marks are positive hits to your Reputation Level, Red marks are negative hits to your Rep. Level, and black/grey marks are neutral hits from members who have no ability to influence your Reputation Level, typically due to having no Reputation Power.


How to give reputation
At the top right of every post there is a small +rep symbol -

Clicking this will open a new page where you'll be able to apply a positive or negative reputation comment as pictured below.




Reputation Limits
  • You must make 25 posts before your reputation hits count on others.
  • You're permitted to make 15 reputation clicks per 24hr period.
  • You have to give rep to 10 different users before repping the same user again.
Reputation Power

Reputation power is calculated as follows.
  • 90 days’ membership equates to +1 rep power
  • 500 posts gives +1 power
  • 100 Reputation points gives you +1 power
Note that these values are cumulative, so you gain +2 power for 180 days and so on.

Reputation in Threads

You can see a users current reputation by looking below their avatar in threads.



The reputation on Heresy is displayed as a numerical figure, mousing over the small green box will display a quick interpretation of how much reputation a user has.

Please be aware that these interpretations are subject to change without notice.

Its a simple and fun way to reward members you feel have been contributing or helping the community.

Thanks for the explanation, Jez.

I'm having a hard time finding where my reputation power is listed, though.

Oh, one suggestion: Perhaps some rep reward for subscribers/donors, like rep power

Awedome Jez, thanks for the explanation. Any idea on what the actual rep points will mean beyond unknown quantity? Or does that change at a set number, etc?

When does your rep power increase? At certain levels, like every 15 rep points you get 1 more to rep power?
Check out the first post, Fen.

Reputation power is calculated as follows.
  • 90 days’ membership eqautes to +1 rep power
  • 500 posts gives +1 power
  • 100 Reputation points gives you +1 power
Note that these values are cumulative, so you gain +2 power for 180 days and so on.
:grin:

So using me as an example, I've got about 15 months in, which is about 5 90 day chunks of time, and 1700 posts divides by 500 about 3 and a half times, but fractions don't count, so call it 3.

3+5= Rep Power 8

Right now yours is at 1, but in another month or so, or in another 400ish posts it'll be 2.

Time and effort is the main way to do it. Rep power gained from having a high rep isn't even a factor yet since nobody's even reached 50 rep yet

Hey Jez is there anyway of getting a mod like the old system where when you got rep you were sent a pm. This may just serve as a reminder for people toactually use the system.
