They are reflected by the dots, but there is a "graduated" scale for determining the number of dots. I won't disclose the details of how the dots are calculated, or else people will start trying to get dots... LOL

Get more MODS JUSTIN! all you have to do is ask.......

but don't punish everyone! for just a few's errors.

Ummm..... Maybe you should re-read the first post?

Thank you for that!

Well, you do get dots based on your thankz pointz. Again, I won't disclose the details of how it is calculated (but it's based on Thankz Pointz/Number of Posts/Length of Membership combined). The more helpful members will still be identified. You'll see a second "dot" soon enough

So, I've changed it! It's now an "earned reputation", rather than a "hard number of points" that people are collecting. I will not give out the qualifications for each "dot". I've changed the title to "reputation" because I was afraid that people would think that each "dot" represented a "point" and then would start asking for more points or asking us why their "dots" don't reflect their points.

Also, I've removed any reference to the point total that each user has accumulated, so that no one looks in their profiles and sees that they "just need 2 more to get to 100" and start soliciting again.

I'm sure that you guys already know that "more dots" = "higher reputation" just as before. You may notice that some people have green dots and some have gray. This doesn't mean that they don't have a reputation (or have a bad one), it just means that their "reputation display" is turned off in their userCPs. If yours isn't showing green and you want it to, just "show my reputation level" in your userCP and you'll be good to go. Hope everyone is okay with the change!!
Thanks justin. You're a good egg!

Prove you wrong??? Have you even read the rest of the thread?

No, you did not attack Justin personally but I didn't say that you did. I said your post was uncalled for - none of the mods closed the thread because they didn't agree with people's opinions. It is not my experience that they do that, and to refute your statement, I noted that Justin - in his role as a moderator - had not closed the thread as you suggested is typical, but had taken the time to respond to the issues raised. See Justin's post at 1:43 PM (CST) - that's on page 10 of this thread - where he addressed concerns one by one.

Your statement was also unnecessary because Justin had already re-instated the system around 2:40 PM (CST) - he announces that in his post on page 11 - about four posts BEFORE your post at 3:35 PM (CST). As noted above, Justin had already responded to many people individually AND re-instated the system, albeit with a few changes. The dialogue about those changes continued after that - again - without the thread being closed because people didn't agree with the decision.

In fact, Justin responded to your comments, too. That post is on page 12 at 4:44 PM (CST).

Who needs to re-read posts before replying?

infoarch, thanks for pointing that out to privateeyes, I'm sure she will re-read the comments that have been made and check the post bits and see, in fact, that it has been restored in a slightly different fashion.

Both of you need to take a teeny step back and not start attacking each other, cause I'm worried that's where the thread is about to head!!

Just wanted to stop in and say thanks for working something out It isn't everyday that you find such a dedicate site owner that actually takes the time to consider each individual and their concerns and then works so hard to find something that will work for everyone. Thanks so much for all you do!
