Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This modification adds a whole set of extra checks whenever members try and give reputation to posts.

The main features are ;

Require Positive Reputation Comment
Members must leave a comment in order to give a post positive reputation.

Reputation Power Cap
Sets the maximum reputation giving power for any member, as well as the default forum wide setting, it is possible to set different caps in specific forums. Please carefully read the setting notes on how to do this (examples are given).

Positive Reputation Multiply Factor
Any positive reputation given will be multiplied by the "Positive Reputation Multiply Factor" - See Custom Factors below.

Negative Reputation Multiply Factor
Similar to above - any negative reputation given will be multiplied by the "Negative Reputation Multiply Factor" - See below.

Custom Forum Based Multiply Factors
As well as the default forum wide factor settings for positive and negative reputation, it is also possible to set custom values for specific forums. Again, please carefully read the setting notes on how to do this (examples are given).

Closed Threads Limit
Posts in closed threads, that exceed the given age, cannot be given reputation. It is possible to stop reputation being given on any post in a closed thread.

Open Threads Limit
Posts in open threads, that exceed the given age, cannot be given reputation. If you desire, it is possible to stop reputation being given on any post in an open thread.

Allow or Disallow List
A list of forums can be supplied and then reputation either be allowed only in those forums, or be disallowed only in those forums. It is also possible to stop reputation being given in any forum (basically suspending the reputation system).

User Ban List
An option to ban individual members from being able to give reputation to anyone.

Custom Usergroup Based Multiply Factors
These are basically the same as the forum based custom factors, but based on the giving members usergroup. Note that these will override any forum based multiplier.

All settings are in vBulletin Options > Enhanced Reputation Checks


Install
Unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

Points to note ;
  • Posts that you cannot give reputation on will not display the reputation icon/link.
  • In order to give negative reputation to a post a comment must be supplied - this is part of default vb 3.6 onwards and cannot be changed by this modification.
  • If a member does not have permission to give negative reputation then any negative reputation they try and give will be set to zero - in default vb they ended up giving positive reputation.
  • If set, the vb fixed admin reputation value will still be multiplied by any Multiply Factors specified in this modification.
  • If the negative reputation factor is 0.5 (to replicate default vb) then there will be one minor difference, a member whose positive reputation power is 1 will have a negative reputation power of 0, in default vb this would be -1.
  • The reputation cap is checked after any multiplication factors have been applied - so no member can give more than the set cap, no matter what factors are applied first.


History:

v3.8.001 : First release for vb 3.8.

The reputation cap function doesn't work for me. Does this modification work together with:
Let user choose how many reputation points to give (up to their limit).

I feared that answer. But fair enough. A lot of people are using that modification though, as its a very basic function. The coder is gone since years. So there is no hope for a vb4 version. I hope a qualified coder will create this functionality for vb4 or integrate it into a hack like this. hint, hint.
Can I throw in some Dr.Pepper apparel or trays of Dr.Pepper as a means of persuasion?

Hi Paul!
Maybe you can help me

With the 3.8 version, I was using some of your reputation enhancement addons.
With them, and some changes in the postbit code, I used the reputation of the post to rank it. "Interesting" "Very Interesting" "Bad" "Very Bad"

With the 4.0.3 I want to make the same modification, with some improvements.
The most important one is than every usergroup of the forum has a limited and exact reputation power.
The lowest usergroup has only one point, the next one two, the third...3....and the last one seven.
Very simple...or so I think.

But there's no option to set a exact reputation power to a usergrup.

....but...and there's where this mod jump to the scene....
....maybe I can set the Reputation Power Cap to 1 point, and the Custom Usergroup Based Multiply Factors to the power I want to that usergroup.
Well, 1*x=x ^ ^

And with that I could continue with my addon ^ ^

I don't know if this addon can be instaled and used with the vb4, or you're planing to upgrade it....but some help would be very very helpful ^ ^

The vb4 version is listed in my profile, just like all the others.

You cannot use the cap like that, as it is applied last, after any factors.

However, I believe that if you set all the standard vb settings that increase rep power to 0, then everyones power will be 1, which you could then apply factors to.

Is there any way we can edit the imported products' PHP to make decimal reputation values round instead of truncate? I assume this is as simple as adding "+ 0.5" somewhere in the code, but being no PHP expert my trial and error approach has failed ;(

Thanks So I was looking in the right place, however I should have subtracted rather than added 0.5 to the negative reputation. Was thinking product 3 multiplied the whole thing by -1 afterwards at "$reppower = $reppower * -1;", apparently not! (Still don't know how I managed to get it to give 100% reputation value instead of rounding yesterday, but no matter :|)

Great mod

is there any chance that this mod doesn't work on 3.8.6 PL1? I've difficulties with this mod. When it's ON, my whole reputation system doesn't work, when it's off everything is fine. There is no allow/disallow list and I tried to change the mod settings and still something is wrong there.

Thanks.

Im not aware of any changes in 3.8.6 that would affect this. I have no 386 to test it on.
