It says his last activity was November 2005, so he hasn't been around for a long time.

Oh I agree.... I actually liked him for the most part. He was soooo predictable, but always good for a laugh. Especially when you would get him riled up.

He is only the 2nd pro-life Democrat I have ever known to be in existance. I know there are more, but have only met 2.

it probably is more reflective of how little we mention this topic in personal conversations...

This section contains many settings that dictate how users of your forum are able to affect each other's reputation score.

Enable User Reputation system

This is the global switch for the reputation system. If you disable this, users will not be able to rate each other nor will their scores be visible.

Default Reputation
This is the reputation score that new users will start out with.

Number of Reputation Levels to Display
When a user enters their User CP, they will see a list of their most recent reputation ratings. This affects how many of the latest ratings to display.

Administrator's Reputation Power
If you wish to have administrator's wield a certain reputation power independent of their calculated score, enter it here. Otherwise, set this to 0 and they will use the same calculations as everyone else.

Register Date Factor
The number of reputation points that a user is able to give or take is dependant on several factors, with the length they have been registered as one of them. A user's power is first initialized at 1 and then this factor and the factors that follow are used to increase it. For example if you set this to 365, every 365 days that the user has been a member of your forum, they would gain one point. So if they have been a member for five years, they would gain 5 points of power for a total of 6.

Post Count Factor
The amount of posts that a user has can also affect their reputation power. Set this to number of posts that you want to award one point for. For example, set this to 50 and for a user with 500 posts, they would gain 10 points of power.

Reputation Point Factor
The users current reputation score can also affect their reputation power. Set this to 100 and a user with a reputation of 1000 would gain 10 points of reputation power. If you set any of the power factors to 0, that will effectively remove that factor from having an effect on the user's reputation power.

Minimum Post Count
If the reputation system is enabled, anyone will be able to rate a post but only users with a post count above the level you set here will be able to actually give points or take points from another user.

Minimum Reputation Count
As with the post count above, a user must have a reputation above this level to be able to give or take points from another user's score.

Daily Reputation Clicks Limit
This sets how many unique members that a forum user will be able to rate in any 24 hour period. Administrators can rate as many people as they wish.

Reputation User Spread
This setting dictates how many unique members that a user must rate before they are able to rate the same member twice. The goal of this setting is to stop a member from either artificially bumping or dropping a user by repeatedly rating their posts.
I found this in the vBulletin admin manual. I wonder what all of the settings on this board are set to. I know several of us had asked what the formula for computing rep given was, but we never got an answer.

Ours seems to be weighted on post count more than anything else

You are a fellow math nerd right flaco? We probably could run a regression to figure this diddy out. It'll probably take more effort than it's worth though

Do you really have time to do these things??? I mean, COME ON... Who has the time to do this, post 10k times, and play the stupid arcade! What a waste of a perfectly good life!

Yes!!!

Alright start keeping a record of how many rep points you receive from rep to rep, the poster who did it, the length of time they've been registered and the number of posts they have.!

Depends. Are we talking about independent, or dependent, variables? In other words, is Flaco equally likely to make a non-quality post the second time out as he was the first time? If so, this would certainly make the problem at hand far more manageable.

If, however, Flaco is of the high-variance type and he occassionally gets on an unlikely roll of quality posts, each dependent in some way on the one before...then the calculations get messy.

Let's take the easy route and assume that every trial is independent. In that case, all we need to do is to determine the likelihood that Flaco makes one quality post in one try.

Let's see. He has made about 6000 posts in one year's time. That's, what, a little under 20 posts a day, ballpark? I reckon he's good for a couple quality posts a day. So we'll figure it one in ten that Flaco makes a quality post.

Take one-in-ten and multiply it by one-in-ten, and those are your odds that Flaco makes two quality posts in a row. Looks like one in a hundred to me.

Of course, the math experts will be along shortly to correct me.

Lol, that's what just happened to me.

Between reps from chum and U2 I got about 80-100 rep points. I donno how many for each of them, but the total was about that.

That's not a problem for me. My posts are pretty low quality so I usually go weeks without getting repped.

Maybe u2 doesn't want us to know how the system worked and he repped you just to spite our statistical study. That u2 is a tricky one for sure.

Unfortunately you are leaving out one important variable -

Quote:
Reputation Point Factor
The users current reputation score can also affect their reputation power. Set this to 100 and a user with a reputation of 1000 would gain 10 points of reputation power. If you set any of the power factors to 0, that will effectively remove that factor from having an effect on the user's reputation power.
I'm not sure how I can obtain this easily short of begging posters to leave their # of rep points in the comment or something. And this process would probably cause such tired-head in posters, that I wouldn't get any rep points at all. The only other way is to have mod privileges.

Let's take the easy route and assume that every trial is independent. In that case, all we need to do is to determine the likelihood that Flaco makes one quality post in one try.

Let's see. He has made about 6000 posts in one year's time. That's, what, a little under 20 posts a day, ballpark? I reckon he's good for a couple quality posts a day. So we'll figure it one in ten that Flaco makes a quality post.

Take one-in-ten and multiply it by one-in-ten, and those are your odds that Flaco makes two quality posts in a row. Looks like one in a hundred to me.

Of course, the math experts will be along shortly to correct me.

lol nice

If there ever was a reason to stay off of Doc's bad list it was to avoid seeing the little red boxes grow under your vCash total.

i think you're grossly over-estimating with this assumption.

Chum comes in around 55 a pop

so considering he's kind of close to drbios rep power, but with 1/4 of the posts... I'd say it has more to do with your rep points than with your post count.

Why would we care about post count? A large number of rep points for a small number of posts is more impressive than a large number of rep points for a large number of posts. If anything, post count should be a negative effect on rep power (although I do not advocate this).
