Thanks in great part to RockSauron (I wouldn't have gone on this little endeavor without his creative problem solving), we have just rolled out a system that will upgrade your profile with new features when you reach certain reputation thresholds. At a rep level of 150, 650, and 1450, your profile will be hit with a "booster shot", so to speak, of features and updates that will make using the forum a bit more fun. For those of you who haven't gotten there yet: think of it as motivation to get involved in the community and be helpful as much as you can. You'll earn a ton of rep that way, and you'll hit the first upgrade in no time. For those of you who have already seen an upgrade notice: think of this as a "thank you" for all the work you've put in thus far. We love our community and we can't really do something for everyone because there's simply too many awesome people, but this we can do. I hope you guys enjoy it!

Note: Donors will not see notices about upgrades because the upgrades are unnecessary for them. If you're a Donor and you hit that magical number, don't expect to see any changes!

^Wait, do they list when you get a new gem? Otherwise how do you know you need 20 more?

Hang on.. I'm a donor and I already have 4 gems, but I got the 'Congratulations - you've been awarded three gems' notification at the top of my page just before. What does that mean then? Was that because I already HAD three or more gems? Or am I to receive more? But as a donor, should I not have received the notification? I assume I still get rep even although I'm a donor... confused... *where's that confused smiley???*:moody: That one will have to do...

For a while there, it wasn't configured to be hidden from Donors, so you guys probably saw it while it was viewable to everyone in that rep threshold. It should be hidden now. If it's not, then I'm not sure what the problem is - hiding notices from specific usergroups is a built-in feature.

Yeah, it turns out that due to bad design, rep levels and rep gems have absolutely nothing to do with each other. We've edited the terminology to reflect what it is actually based on - your rep level, e.g. the number of times you've been thanked.

05-25-2010, 02:51 AM
This is great! All our helpful new members can get bundle privileges! I couldn't live without my ultimate bundle. It's great.

Three Questions:

Since I donated, that means I have all the new extra profile features, right?

Do people who bought bundles keep their bundle upgrades?

Why is the 3rd reputation level 1450? It was a lot easier to get 2500 experience than it is to get 1450 reputation points.

JspOt
05-25-2010, 02:52 AM
So basically, even with only 2 bars, I have the upgrade thing?

Silverleon
05-25-2010, 03:05 AM
Wait, i bought the Ultimate Bundle, and just saw one of those messages for "profile upgrades," is this gonna downgrade my U.Bundle upgrade in any way?

.......what? I thought rep gems were, as their name implies, symbolic of your rep. And apparently that's untrue because of "bad design"? I'm really confused. Do you mean that past positive and negative rep doesn't show up in rep gems? You said in the reputation update thread that current reputation of members wouldn't change.

Silverleon
05-25-2010, 03:36 AM
Just reached Premium prile upgrade and the 2nd message popped up,again, this won't downgrade Ultimate bundle buyers, right?

(Also, wasn't 650 Rep = 7bars/ gems?
Or how many was it then?)

Several hours after notification of an "upgrade" I'm still on the ultimate bundle so it looks like it doesn't change your settings if you already have something better from the old system.

Do you mean that past positive and negative rep doesn't show up in rep gems? You said in the reputation update thread that current reputation of members wouldn't change.
For some reason, regardless of what the rep levels are, you get rep gems at different rep amounts. Rep gems work on a different scale, and that scale is hard-coded into vB. I can't figure out an easy way to modify that scale (at least not at this moment), so it just made more sense to use raw rep levels instead.

No, it's not going to downgrade you at all. If you've got a better setup, you'll retain the superior features.

What do people usually earn rep for?

Usually helpful posts. Posting in Level showcase threads will usually get you a thanks, commenting in the Artwork and Creativity. Etc. But make sure to actually be helpful and not just say "It's good" Suggest things to improve.

And you can also get the occasional few thanks from saying something funny! ;)

But wuts about mah question? Let me word it differently-
How many upgrades are there? How much rep do you need for each upgrade? What does each upgrade give you?

Incinerator22
05-26-2010, 04:06 AM
Slightly unrelated question:

I thought thanks was now worth two points. A few days ago I remember having an even number, and now I have an odd number. Since you can no longer give someone positive or negative rep, how is it possible that I now have an odd number?

I think that it's because it was simply put into current effect, it didn't replace any old reputation.

At a guess, I'd say it's PHP's default rescaling code not being able to support the rescaling of animated GIFs.

It might work if you rescale the image to no more than 100x100 pixels or 150x150 pixels, depending on which the maximum is for you, which you can find out on your Edit Avatar page (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/profile.php?do=editavatar).

you must donate at least 10 dollars to get a user upgrade. And it isn't automatic, so basically you'll just have to wait till CC gets online, sees you donated, and then manually upgrades you to donor status.

Says it all really.... I guess he just clicked the first thread he saw.

Anyway, I am keen to up my ranking and post relatively often, I do get the impression however that not many people actually use the thanks button.

Are there particular threads that thank more than others? I have been a member for near 2 months and only have 23 rep points... is this normal?

That's exactly the motivation we want to avoid. Thanks is not something you work for, it's something that comes about by being helpful and being of the mindset that helping others is more important than the rep you receive. You will not gain more rep by asking for it.

And yes, people do use the thanks button quite frequently, but only on the posts that they deem deserve it.

Strangepom
06-26-2010, 03:46 PM
Please do not get me wrong! I do not and have not ever asked for thanks. I was just curious. I do apriciate it however if someone has thanked me as I feel like what I have said has been in some way useful.

When I post replies my aim is only to help others. As I wish to be helped when I have a question.

Well, if you want to avoid it, you may wanna keep the only way to upgrade your profile from getting huge amounts of it ;o

Although exp is coming back soon, the guy says that the update to vb exp 4.0 which has the store comes out around today, so D:

But still, I'd think that, if you don't want people to want to try and work for something, you shouldn't place such a great prize at the end of the trail ;o

Ok, update. The shop is not going to be part of vBExperience 4. Instead, Phalanx, the creator of our experience system suggests using another Mod in conjuction:


Shop
As of vBExperience 4.0, the Shop has been discontinued. Please use instead the Point Market System v3 by TheMayham (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=232676).

Just wondering, what's the max size of the profile picture? I received the message sometime ago about my rep. and the maximum size of my profile picture was bigger, along with a few other changes, which I have not noticed. Yet.

And what's in it for me when (not if :p) I become a donor (that is, as long as no organs are involved) what will the new changes be?

Alrighty, vbexp 4.0 has gone gold! ... which pretty much means that it is now in an almost bugless state, so CC doesn't have the excuse to hold it off on us because it may be buggy anymore.

However... The guy who is working on the shop add on said he'd upgrade the Point Market to be compatible with vbexp today... however, he hasn't been on.

However... I just noticed he just logged on and is looking at his topic... so he may be updating it... now...

At which point, CC won't have too much of an excuse to hold it off on us... EXP IS NIGH!

edit: k, he said he is trying to fix two more bugs before releasing, but it shouldn't be too much longer... so yeah, exp IS nigh.

Each "thanks" = 2 rep.

You have 158 rep, but thanks is 2 points.

As for the remaining 18, you probably have some rep from before we switched to purely thanks where thanks = 2... so yeah, it gets confusing.

Blue = Points
Orange = Level
Green = Activity

:)

Is there a thread anywhere that tells us what points and level are and how they are effected?

I'm not sure. Apparently it's all still in the updating stages. I think once it's done, CC will post Official News about it. :)

Hey guys, the VBexperience system will be continuously updating, and this will take some time. Be patient. It should be fully functional within a few days. Might be sooner, even.

Sorry if this has been covered, but I have (or had) the ultimate bundle and had large signatures as a privilege, but now, my sig seems to have been shrunk... back into the old days.

I have a question.
If a person donates, what do they get, as in, are there levels of donation that get you better stuff, or is the donation upgrade stuff for all donators?

Can you explain this posting system?

How do I earn rep?

How do I see how much Rep I have?

You earn rep by helping the community, being funny and generally being nice, if people see these qualities in your post they may 'thank', this 'thank' button is located at the bottom left of every post, each 'thank' earns you +2rep. :)

To see how much rep you have, at the top of the page, next to notifications there is a link called settings, click on it and scroll down and you will see how much reputation you have and in what threads you received it.
