I’ve been searching for an Invision User Reputation, Vbulletin alike mod all over. I always wanted what Vbulletin has to offer to it’s users.

Well the 2.1.x Invision User Reputation system is finally here.

It’s exactly as the Vbulletin Reputation system, and it’s GREAT. It has astonishing features :

Users gain and lose reputation based on how their posts are scored by other forum participants. Users with the ability to affect reputation, will either give or take aways points by approving or disapproving with a post’s content.

All of the factors that affect a user’s reputation score are found in the User Reputation section of the MANAGER page and the TOOLS & SETTINGS page. Please view that section of the manual for more information on controlling how users are able to affect another user’s reputation.

Basically, you can review anybody’s post and give them a “positive” or negative” rating, as well as a short review, if you wish. You can’t review the same persons post more than once unless you review 10 other people.

These are the settings they’ve got:

  • For every X number of days, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power – set at 365 days. ie. every year you are a member you get one extra point of reputation power.
  • For every X number of posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power – set at 1000.
  • For every X points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power – set at 100
  • How many posts must a user have before his reputation hits count on others – set at 50
  • How much reputation must a user have before his reputation hits count on others – set at 5 (the default reputation everybody starts with is 5 so your opinions count immediately)
  • How many reputation clicks can a user give over each 24 hour period? Administrators are exempt from this limit – set at 10
  • How many different users must you give reputation to before you can hit the same person again? Administrators are exempt from this limit – set at 10

Invisionize : Thank you!

Later edit : I just found out (he gave me a message) that Alex Firmani is the author of the Vbulletin Reputation system which is included in every newly shipped kit. He runs his own Monetise your site blog. So let’s thank especially him, because without him, we would’ve never had an invision reputation system, or none at all :)

Later edit 2: I installed this Reputation mod over at Seopedia Forum. What i can say : It’s excellent! Just that it missed a critical component : the table in the user control panel, where any user can see his last X given reputation comments.

At this build, only the admins have the ability to see the reputation comments, in the ACP. What’s the point of the comments if the users can’t see them ? I don’t give a rats ass about them, as admin :)Anyway, i made a post on this issue, at Invisionize Forums, and the creator of this mod has agreed with : OK :D. Let’s hope this improvement is coming alive soon.

[...] Board software, like vBulletin, comes with reputation features built in or some other board engines, like the popular phpBB or Invision boards, have mods that enable user reputation. So if you like the idea of giving more power to your powerusers you can add these mods and start using a reputation system out of the box. Christian Mezei of SeoPedia describes the features of the invisionize mod in his article Invision User Reputation System (mod) [...]
