    Reputation System on Islamic Board (IB)

    Report bad ads?

    السلام علیکم

    I don't understand the "Reputation" system here on this forum. If it is in the hands of others to 'grant' me reputation, then human is basically "Miser"
    Can anybody here explain it to me please? The normal procedure should be based on one's own struggle rather than looking after others' generosities.
    Or may be I 'm not getting it how it works.
    Looking forward to listen from Old members please.

    Of course what counts is the "rep" frorm Allah Subhanohu wa Taa'a, I 'm just curious about the system on this forum and others, like me, might be wondering.
    JazakAllah, stay blessed.

    The system is basically, others will rep you if they like your post, however from my experience, you can get 'likes' often but reputation points are given only if you do a really good exceptional post. So don't count on the rep points reaching the sky anytime soon . I don't

    Did you try posting your question to the Helpdesk section? Threads there are sent directly to mods and function like a private message. I have sent numerous questions to mods using Helpdesk over the years, and I always get a reply.

    It's just a system that's been here from the beginning. We didn't have a "like" system previously. Before the "like" system, I guess it encouraged members to make posts based on substance and quality rather than spamming or going off-topic, or to give feedback just in general without really needing to private message or go off topic. It also helps increase activity on the forum since I believe every post you make yields a rep point, for example. At one point rep points were deducted when a member requested a username change. Members have the ability to do this on their own now though. From a mod's perspective, seeing your rep points balance gives me an idea of your duration here at a glance.

    Reputation:

    * when someone likes your post 1 rep point is increased in your 'reputation'.

    * if someone gives 'reputation comments' then he uses his 'Rep Power' and rep points are increased in your 'reputation' equal to his 'rep power'

    Rep Power:

    * When your 'reputation' reaches 1000 points then your 'rep power' is increased by 1 point.
    (observed it)

    * When your posts count reaches the mark of 1000 then your 'rep power' is increased too.

    * and after every 2 months this 'rep power' is increased by 1 point

    JazakiaAllah for explaining the system, I hope other newbies will benefit from the answer too.
