That's what I thought for the new member's prohibition to give reputation points, affect new members to a special group. How can I choose a special group to put the new members in it (and they will be move in the "member" group after X posts) ?
We suggest me to turn off negative rep too, but I think it's a bad idea. As I answered to that, for example, imagine a member that will have many positive rep points, very often. And one day, nobody knows why, many of his posts became bad... very bad. So, he deserves negative rep points ! but it's impossible... and so, even if his posts became "bad", he will always have a good reputation...
Would it possible in the future to run a private chat like this way (without being in the public chat) :
. See if our friends are online in the bottom of the page (like Facebook), in order to choose one or several to run a chat ?
. Run a private chat just by clicking on the name of a member, on the IPB home page for exemple in the "actives users", or by going to the profile of a member ?
The reputation system is a good idea, but unfornately, some members don't use it correctly. For example, if a member doesn't like another member, he can set several bad reputation points to this person in the same minute. Another example, a new account, even with no posts, can use this system (so if a member really doesn't like someone, he can create several accounts to use the reputation system on the poor member).
Si, would it be possible to :
. Prohibit members with less than XX posts to use the system ?
. Set a delay between two identical reputation points (he can set a + and a - in the same time, but not " - - - -",...) ?
