Reputation Recount

Recommended Posts

As of today all Reputation scores have been recounted. The scores now accurately show the exact number of Likes that a members  content has received since we moved to this new incarnation of UKM in 2015.

Why was this done?
Lot's of members had massively high reputation points carried over from the old forum reputation system. These figures were unattainable on the new UKM and the massive discrepancy between the 2 systems meant that the system became meaningless.

My huge reputation score is gone and now I'm unhappy
Your old score isn't lost, it's just not currently visible. It is my intention to use this data to provide some other form of recognition/award/perk further down the line.

Will something good come from this? 
Yes :) Something new is coming which builds on the Likes system and offers a lot more in addition.

oh christ, people will be playing for likes again now. bad move for a forum IMHO

Part of the reason for calculating the recount is that, now that everyone's on the same system, it will enable me to adjust the reputation system so that it isn't based solely on Likes.

E.g. Informative posts outside of Gen Con will potentially add more to a users reputation than a Like for simply posting  funny pic in Gen Con.
