@easy_john... Yeah, most people just say "byeee"...

Anyway, what on earth is "rep power", and how have I managed to rack up so many? -edit- I guess they are "reply points"... Ok I get it now :D

Hope you can do it right(better).


Instead of complaining, what keeps you from making your own site ? With 9 years of experience at php it shouldn't be a problem for ya !?!

Take a look at AROS-EXEC.org. They are running a slighly new version of Xoops than we were running. They are getting hacked, currently are. Some trojan is getting inserted into their pages. Upgrading to a newer version of Xoops as they came out, they would be now be running the newest Xoops on PHP 5. Likely not haveing this issue as the security hole being used would not be there. What happens when there host ends PHP4 support? If they are running on their own colocated server, nothing. They can run whatever they want, but at the mercy of the security holes in PHP4 and the version of Xoops they are running. I don't know what their hosting situation is but I wonder what will happen.
As to PHP, sure the core does stay the same mostly. That doesn't help, unless that is all your software uses. I also moderate on phpwsforums.com, a support forum for phpWebsite CMS. I watched alot of people have issues with one version when hosts started switching to php5 only shortly after php5 was released.  Version 9 of phpWebsite didn't completely stop working. There were three or four commands that were not php5 compatable. Which meant the sites worked but some core feature were broken or didn't work right. Plus you have all the third party addon modules. Some which didn't work at all. Some modules broke when the phpWebsite core was updated to be php5 compatable.
There was also a small issue whe mySQL 5 came out.
Oh, I still know sites out there that still run phpWebsite 8. So, yes some do keep moving to hosts that can support their site. Most of these out of fear of data lost which can happen in upgrading. phpWebsite has gone through two complete rewrites, so upgrading and data migration is not exactly one to one. These phpWebsite version 8 sites do run at a costs. Limited hosting and that version is very easy to hack.

Rep points, like ranks, happen upon certain milestones, not per each award.

I'll try to post the rep scale tomorrow.

No rush! Loving the new site, great work... a million times better than the old site (and that was difficult for me to say).

I'm loving the new site, too.  The vibrancy of the community here is what's making me get more active with my Amigas.

on some sites (won't know if it works here unless someone gives me a rep point) you can see a list of the most recent rep points voted toward yourself right in your CP

Other than the single green dot indicating that you are "on the right path" or something... how can you tell how many rep points you have? I don't seem to see that listed anywhere. :huh:

On a serious note, we're making progress.

So there dammit.


Hi,
 Dont know if this has been suggested (didnt have time to read all the posts as i have to run) but it would be great to have a Gallery tab at the top of the screen where the other tabs are, you know, Home, Forums, User CP, FAQ, ect ect. Gallery would be very welcomed sitting along the others up there i think.

Rep stands for reputation.

It's supposed to be a measure of a user's reputation on the website.

Trolls will get neg-repped (disapproved by others) therefore getting a negative number.

Anyone that is helpful will get pos-repped (approved).

Rep power is a completely different beast from rep points. It's supposed to take into consideration your post count, rep points and other factors but I have still not completely worked out how it completely works.:crazy:
