Check out our Forum Rules. Lets keep this forum an enjoyable place to visit.
I love the idea. I think it will add fun elements. Plus, then when someone asks a question, and get a variety of answers, they can look and see who the heavy posters are (not that that makes them correct necessarily...)
I don't quite understand the "star" rating thing,, I wanted to give you 5 stars for your answer but it would only let me give it one star.
And I have never even gotten one of those. lol
Don't worry, Ken, someone and me fixed it a bit, LOL!
I gave you 5 for yours Ken.
Not revengeful at all....
@Pierre: 5 stars ?,,,, Thanks,,, the first time ever. I'm excited now.
You guys are so funny!
I don't mind the new "system" it seems put in place for fun or just gathering info.
I hope everyone weighs in on this and gives their opinion.
My suggestion would be to call it something different... "credit" seems to not be well received so far. Or would there be an option for a member to "turn off " their status for those that don't like it.
Waiting for all the replies and input...

I think of the "credit" more like "participation". I think that like any new feature it will take some fine tuning, but it is good in that it shows more than just one's post count.

Yes such as people that do come here often and read, yet do not post often. They can at least get points for coming.
I don't care for it... makes me feel like I'm not performing up to expectations..
I don't think anyone expects too much out of anyone else here in the forum, except to conduct ourselves in a reasonable manner.
It's growing on me now that I understand how it works.
I especially like the idea of members earning "badges" for specific things like participating in projects or posting videos. I think that could provide encouragement in a fun way. I hope Pierre is able to figure out a way to do that (I volunteer to help research it).
When I was in grade school the teacher(s) would stick various colored stars in the middle of our foreheads for active participation and being good in class. A gold star was the highest honor.
Those were the days, my friend(s).
I rarely go look at anyone's profile.
