    Lightbulb New forum feature: thanks button

    I have just enabled a new thanks rep system. If someones post helps you out feel free to thank the poster by simply clicking on the "Thanks" button on the bottom right of the post.
    Each time you thank someones they get 5 rep.
    Remember also rep is different from rep power, rep power is calculated against the rep you have.

    Please note if this feature is abused badly we will disable and all thanks/rep is logged.

    Comments/suggestions here

    You could even *test* it out by thanking me

    What the boxes are:
    They are called vB reputation 'dots':
    One green dot () is given for every started 100 reputation points.
    From 500 points on, one bright green dot () is given for every started 200 reputation points.
    One red dot () is given for every started 100 negative reputation points.
    From 500 negative points on, one bright red dot () is given for every started 200 negative reputation points
    If a user has 0 reputation points, a gray dot () is displayed.
    If a user has chosen to turn off reputation in his UserCP, a black dot () is displayed.

    How does rep power work:
    Now for reputation POWER. This is the relative power you have to affect someone elses LEVEL. Your individual power is a calculation based on the length of time participating in the forums, the number of posts, and your own reputation level. So, if you have been here a while, have a decent number of posts, and a good level, your POWER will be higher. Think of this as how you value someone's opinion. You will give more weight to the opinion of a trusted friend than a stranger. You can see your POWER in your User CP. When you give postive reputation, you will add points equal to your POWER to another user. When you give negative reputation, you will remove points equal to half of your POWER to another user. This prevents abuse.

    It will just be the system updating the your rep based on the tweaks I made earlier I bet.

    This is disabled in the FFS forum it seems. Is that intentional?
