Version 1.0 - Initial Release

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5 /

On my forum Reptation is "serious business." I found myself reseting reptuation every year because inevitably some people had accumulated so much rep they were "untouchable" and some users had their reptuations destroyed in "Rep Wars." When I introduced the "Like" button to give rep, and a similar button to hurt rep, people used the system even more.

This mod is an attempt to keep Reputaton both relevant and "Fresh." Over time this mod will gradually decrease rep of users with very high rep, and increase the rep of users with very low rep. Of course you can set the high and low values and by how much they should be changed (as a percentage.)

"That sounds like commie talk!"

By default this mod is set to run once per day but you can easily change it by editing the "Scheduled Task" (Live Rep by BOP5) and make it run as often or as little as you want.

On each run the mod will decrease the rep of users who have rep at or above a limit you set, then increase the rep of users who have rep below a limit you set. Finally it will update the reptation levels so everyone has the correct rep displayed.

You can specify by usergroup or userid any users you want the mod to ignore- their rep will not be altered by the mod.

I am using this on my live forum,, if you are interested in seeing it in action (you would have to track rep over the course of a few days.)


To accomplish the calculation the mod uses 2 queries each time it is run (usually once a day.) I have used this on my live forum with about 1000 members and it ran just fine. I am confident it should scale well on large boards too since all calculation is done by MySQL and MySQL is in general very efficient at what it does. That said if you have a very large forum- (hundreds of thousands of members or such) please test this first on a test site before deploying.


Please "Mark as Installed" if you Use This.

PS - This should work on all VB versions which use Reputation. Tested and confirmed working on VB 3.8.7, 4.0.8, and 4.1.5.
