The thanks button doesnt appear on the mobile view, I had no idea it existed.

Add downvoting and I'd have to seriously reconsider ever visiting here again. It inevitably leads to a toxic environment.

fine with me
It's not a badge of honour... You don't get treated any different at events, etc. .. As everyone knows you join somewhere get to know people and there you go... There is one exception though... If you know Jodo then you should be given £1,000,000 if you admit to it... ??

I hope to God the mods ignore the posts in this thread. Nothing worse than trying to manage / change anything by committee.
It's only original once.

500 posts before you can buy would be good to stop some of the new flippers.. But then would be bit harsh on genuine members who are looking for a grail :/

I would say any system is ultimately open to dodgey behaviour just as it is with the current scoring system.
Perhaps an additional function to allow people to downvote posts anonymously, as well as the current 'thank' button on posts might even things out in some cases.
But then that is open to abuse also. Some people would downvote simply because they disagree, not that the content of the post is wrong. It's not a simple thing to please everyone all of the time.

For instance if I reply to Aaron and say his RomPatcher is ace, I get a point, but he gets none.
If I simply click the teeny 'thanks' button at the top of the post, he gets 5 points, but I get none.

Ultimately, you can't beat actually meeting people face-to-face at an event in person to find out what people are really like. A number on a forum is just a dumb number really.

It's taken me 2.5 years to get to "Senior Member", so if it moves to 5000 then I will be a "groupie" until the day I can't lift a soldering iron or remember how to code (22.5 years)

I do agree though 500 can be hit easily if you post a lot in For Sale / Valuations. You could always exclude certain sections of the forum from the points tally. It really depends on what you want the status to reflect.

it would be nice if we can edit it to whatever we like, such as.. 'Big Member' Embarrassed

ok maybe not.... but.....  how about the possibility to use even just a little bigger sized avatars?

examples below:

64 x 64 pixels:
(this is currently the maximum size avatar allowed)


80 x 80 pixels:


100 x 100 pixels:

Pah!
I am approaching 17 years and still haven't achieved 1,000 pts.
To get to 5,000 at that rate I will need to live to be 125...

Does not bother me so much, so long as it does not increase the number of noise posts (far too many of these in the trading/sale section), but agree with the consensus 500 is very low, 5000 is pretty high, would be nice to have different levels every 500 or 1000.

The feedback system should be encouraged & promoted, its really good, but not enough people use it or realise its there.

Just realised I've reached my 10 year anniversary here, blimey time has flown by.

It sounds like a good idea ,especially where buying and selling is involved ,and your using it as a guide to an extent
Maybe 5000 is too high as said and 500 too low for sure .

Damn it keeps changing to reflect your latest total.

Agree with general consensus... 500 too low... 5000 too high.

I will stop spamming this thread now!
