Every registered member now has "Buddy Points" and can contribute to the Buddy Points
of other members. Here's how it works.
When you are reading posts by other members, you will see a little icon that looks like scales.
When you click on that icon, a little box will come up that asks if you approve or disapprove of that person's post. Comments left are viewable by the person you are commenting on.
After you click the "add Buddy
Points" button, the system will automatically update that person's points
with your rating.
Everyone starts with 2 points
when they register. Points
are gained when others give an approval rating on your posts.
The longer you are a member, the more posts you have and the higher your reputation is, the more your votes will affect other members' point levels.
Everyone has 25 votes per day and you must rate at least 10 different users before you can vote on the same person again.
Reputation levels are as follows:
: member is a brand new buddy
: member is a jewel in the rough
: member is on a distinguished road
: member is a special member
: member has a lot of fans
: member is on their way to the top
: member is a rising star
: member is a mover and a shaker
: member has much to be proud of
: member is a wonderful contributer
: member is a name known to all
