A couple of weeks ago, I was looking into XF's trophy system, and tried to think of something for Wedge too, that would look a bit like it, but also be an indicator of someone's implication on a forum... So, I started devising (additive) points attributed by post (1), thought (0.5), per direct post/thought reply (since we have this in the database) (0.5), likes (depending on what it being liked, I couldn't make up my mind), topic (I think I settled on 0.2 per reply to it), but then I decided awarding points to replies might encourage trolling. Anyway, I couldn't settle on other things like points awarded for gallery albums and items, topic and profile views (minus bot visits), and more place-specific areas like uploading a plugin or theme here, or being marked as the one who successfully replied to a topic, so I just skipped to something else that needed my attention, so it's funny to see a discussion about something similar, but I don't really think it can be done, without at least giving the admin the ability to change the attributable points per item, and that's where it becomes complicated I guess. Ultimately, I wanted to see if we couldn't replace post-based groups with points-based groups, that is, awarding shy people for still being part of the community. But then, what prevents you from just Liking every single post in the forum..? A ban threat, maybe....? :lol:
Anyway, that's where I was at that point, and I couldn't decide, so I think I added it somewhere in my to-do list, and you know the story about my to-do list... It grows about 5 times faster than it shrinks, so it's never ending.
