Default Forum Contribution Level

I'm happy to announce that we now have a system in place that will calculate a users forum contribution level.

The contribution level/points system will is a way of acknowledging users who contribute the most to the forum by allowing them to collect Reward Points which can be redeemed for HWC Swag as well as provide them with extra entries into our contests, thus giving them a better chance of winning.

* As always, any registered member is able to enter the sweepstakes; however, they will only get one entry if they have not contributed to the forum.

Contribution Level Details

Under every forum members name, there is a forum contribution bar which is made up of two parts.

1) The users current contribution level
2) Points needed to move up to the next level

If you click on your forum name, you will be able to see the detailed stats.

The points are calculated as follows:

Points
  • Days Online (Points that are added for every day since registering) - 0.5
  • Points for Referrals (Points that are added for every user you refer to this site) - 100
  • Points for Threads (How many points given for single threads) - 2.5
  • Points for Thread Views (How many points given for views on threads) - 0.25
  • Points for Replies to Own Threads (How many points given for replies to own threads) - 0.15
  • Points for Sticky Threads (How many points be given for sticky threads) - 100
  • Points for Posts (How many points given for post made) - 2.3
Top Level is currently - 30


Sweepstakes Entries

  • Entering the sweepstakes gives you one (1) entry
  • You will automatically receive one (1) entry for every Level you have achieved.
  • Receive an additional entry for being an active Folding@Home (F@H) member.
ex.

User enters Sweepstakes (1 entry)
User is an active Folding member (1 entry)
User have a Contribution Level of 10 (10 entries)


Total entries for this user is 12.

* Extra entries for Folding and Contribution Level are automatically entered (no user input is required).

Infractions
  • 100 points will be deducted for every Crap/SPAM thread or post.
  • 1-3 word replies do not count for points. ex. (Cool, Sucks, Lame)
* Point and Level calculations are constantly monitored and are subject to change without notice.

To see your overall standing at any time you can follow this link.

That is a great system. Nice point attribution. Now, next question: what is a referral?

If you refer someone to the site and they put your nickname in the referral area, you will receive additional points.

That's pretty cool, except I can't win anything.

You could just end up with a lot of new crap threads and postings,
even Iím guilty of that when Iím feeling funky
with even more incentive, I can just smell the abuse comingÖ.

Interesting...

I've seen this hack and was thinking about putting it on my forum, but I think it would cause havok since we all know each other IRL.

That is true, and is why we have put systems in place that should hopefully curb such things. Moderators can also apply "infractions" which deduct 100 points from people posting crap/spam.
