Beta Testing: User Point System
Posted on Sunday, February 08 @ 15:15:37 PST by Fido

I decided to start BETA testing a User Points System today. Not quite sure how well this system will work at this point, as it is something new in Version 7.0 of PHPNuke

Basically how it works is like this... certain actions on this site are assigned a point value. If you, as a registered user of this site, do one of these actions you earn points. There really is no use for these points right now, but we have the ability to do things such as turning off banner ads for people who are at a certain point level. The possibilities are endless here, but like I said I'm not quite sure how well it will work out at this point.

On the right hand-side of this page, there is now a new block titled "Top User Points". This lists the 15 people who have earned the most points.

As of right now, the points you can earn for certain functions are as follows.... Read more

2 Points - Each time a user send the link to our site to a friend via Recommend Us Module
5 Points - Comment published for any article and/or news
2 Points - Each time a user votes for any article
1 Points - Each vote registered for any survey, actual or old ones are valid
4 Points - Comment published for any actual or old survey
1 Points - Each time a user clicks to visit any resource on WebLinks module
3 Points - Each time a user votes for a resource in WebLinks module
4 Points - Comments posted on any resource in the WebLink module
1 Points - Each time a user clicks to download any file or resource on Downloads module
4 Points - Each time a user votes for a resource in Downloads module
5 Points - Comments posted on any resource in the Downloads module

You must be a registered user on this site to earn points. Any feedback you have on this system would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if you are going to award points for answering surveys, you need to remove the bug that lets you vote more than once for the same survey, as that also increases your point count.

It's a weird Idea, but it might have some interesting possibilities.

Perhaps add an option for getting points for submitting an article or a download, and then additional points if that article or download is accepted?
