About forum rankings
« on: September 28, 2004, 09:59:04 am »
You'll notice you have two forum rank meters underneath your username when you post items to the forum.

The first (made of chocolate blocks) indicates the percentage of
products within the review that you have voted for (you have to keep
voting for new products to maintain your chocolate mad status).

The second (made of stars) indicates how many postings you've made to
the forum or if you are a moderator of the forum (up to 3 stars for
more postings, 4 stars for a moderator). Moderators of the forum are
selected by chocadmin at my discression <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0">

UPDATE: Ok the new forum only shows your number of postings rank, your chocolate rank is displayed in the top-right of review web pages other than the forum at the moment.

Troo, I still haven't worked out how to get the second meter into the new forum system. The chocrank is recorded though and should appear top-right when you're in any page other than the forum :)

Well, it's like this.  If you feel that someone's post is very appealing , than click [applaud].  If you feel that the person's post is not to your liking you can click [smite].  This will increase or decrease their Karma score, so people with higher scores are good posters and lower scores, well, you get the picture.

I'll applaud you now for asking the question :)

Of course, this system is open to abuse...

For some reason my karma score has gone down 6 today. What did i say to upset people?

I tend to applaud every post that makes me smile or think.

Mine keeps going down as well, although not as harshly.

If you get enough karma do you get a chameleon icon?
