a solution which is currently in operation here at the
forum in Beta mode.
In the real world the way you thank someone will
obviously differ according to what you have received
- Thanks for that biscuit.
- THANKS a million, million times for buying me a new PC !!!
But in the Warrior forum your 'thanks' only counts as one
extra item in the thanks list.
So here is my idea.
We have different levels/grades of thanks.
1 = useful post
10 = fantastic post which will rocket me to number one in Google
I have a provisional list of the full gradings from 1 to
10 which will be available later.
Now for 2 great ideas
(1) We can now incorporate a much requested feature
Suppose you DON'T like a post
Well you can give it a negative grade e.g
-1 = not useful
-10 = I used your idea and got banned from Google
(2) When you give thanks (+ve or -ve) you will be asked
to supply a reason (it's mandatory).
Now others can come along and look at your reason and
SIMILARLY give a thanks grading and reason to that !
And others can come along and comment on THAT reason and
so on ad infinitum.
All these gradings will be held in the Warrior database
and a complex algorithm will apply a weighting which will
result in your Profile showing your (PTR) Personal Thanks
This PTR will become an important figure used in allowing
special privileges and access at the forum
So do you like the idea ?
Well whether you do or don't I'd like to know.
Please hit the Thanks button and, as I am obviously one
of the Beta testers, it will pop up with a request for a
grade and a reason so you can see it in operation and
give me feedback.
