Post Groan Hack 3.3


About this hack:
This hack was requested by users who like my "Post Thank You Hack". Both can run together on the same forum.

This hack adds a "groan" button to all posts. Any user can "groan" at a post. This will reduce the amount of "junk" posts your forum gets.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they groan at a post.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Groans into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't groan twice
  • Guests don't see 'groan' button
  • Counts how many groans a user gives
  • Counts how many groans a post gets
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many groans a user got
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users groaned at posts
  • Search for all groaned at posts
  • Administrator can remove all Groans from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Groans (Option to turn it off)
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date all forums
  • Option to integrate hack with Post Thanks Hack
  • Ban Usergroups
  • Ban Users

Can you please add a nofollow Tag at Post Thank You ? Even the Buttons are not visible for Guests the Crawler are allways attempting to use them. Traffic that makes no sin.

Well done.
We call ours "kicks"...since people were always *kicking* each other when something silly was said. We use a kicking smilie. Just edit your phrases (there are a few!) from groan(s) to whatever you want.

Instead of keeping a separate groan count, can this be made to subtract from a users "thank you" count? Even the ability for people to have negative points.

Maybe a donation would help achieve this?

first of all, this is a gr8 hack like the post thanks hack. few days ago i added this on my forum. hoped it'll reduce junk/off topic posts. but what ppls were doing is for example, If i give a groan to someone, that users finding one of my older post & give groan. lol kinda like fight. so i was forced to disable it.

So Abe1, if you add these 2 options:

1. Will need reason (like reputation) to give a groan
2. cant give groan if the post if X (X = admin set) days older.


then it'll be perfect & users wont be able to abuse it.

thanks

I dont know about if I would add a reason. Just too much work on the user's part to use the hack.

As for the datys cut off, I'll put it on the list.

require reason can be ON/OFF from admincp. so its up to forum admins, if they want make it easy for the user end, but i think it should a must have option to stop abuse this hack.

thanks..

You should add a reputation modifier for a groan, just like a thank. A thank you should give reputation, while a groan should lower it. And I agree on requiring a reason.
