Reputation point: 277
The new TSP Center reputation system is similar to and was modeled after the reputation system built into the popular vBulletin forum software (which this board is not).

Reputation points are earned by member longevity, post count, and point awards assigned by other members.

1 point is earned for every 5 posts.
1 point is earned for every 30 days of forum membership.

I intend on extending the system to award reputation points when investment excellence is demonstrated through FantasyTSP. More on that later...

Awarding reputation points to others

The basic principle is simple. If you want to thank someone for a post you can do this in two clicks. If you want to tell someone that they are a bad user with bad behavior you can do this in two clicks as well. TSP Center members will know who are good reputated users (those whose words have meaning) and who are bad users (those whose words and deeds are not recommended others).

A simple breakdown of the system

Jane has a reputation of 10. Mike has 50. If Jane gives Mike 5 points, Mike will get 5 points. If Mike gives Jane 5 points, Jane will get 5.2 (Mike is more reputated so his givings have more power). But the bottom line of the whole thing is that each time you give, you lose. You lose the same amount as you give (without adding your power). So this is the hard earning reputation system. You can't give reputation if you have -10 points (of course) or anything less than 1.

If Jane wants to give Mike negative reputation (for example -5), -5 points will be subtracted from Mike's reputation. But if Mike wants to give Jane negative reputation (for example -5), -5.2 points will be subtracted from Jane's reputation (again, more power from more reputated users). And again when you give, you lose.

A detailed breakdown of the system

For those who wants to know exactly how this system works i'll explain it more deeply. We have 5 stars: Image Image Image Image Image and one for negative reputation: Image (it doesn't matter how much negative reputation you have, as soon as you move subzero you'll get this red star). Each star represents a number of reputation points and multiplication constants.

Reputation Points: Image 200 Image 100 Image 50 Image 10 Image 1

Multiplication Constants: Image 1.4 Image 1.3 Image 1.2 Image 1.1 Image 1

So, for example, if you have the 3rd medal (points > 50) your constant will be 1.2. Let's look at Mike and Jane again but with different initial reputation points.

Image

Mike has 150 points, Jane has 25. Mike gives Jane +5 points. He loses 5 points and receives bonus points for giving (default value is 0.05 for each given point): 0.05 * 5. And Mike's points after the giving will be 145.25 (the system rounds up all the fractions to 1 figure after the decimal point but in the database all is saved in float numbers). So, we'll see Mike's points as 145.3. Jane will get 5 points multiplied by Mike's constant 1.3. So, she will have after all 31.5.

Now, let's see if Jane gives Mike +5 points. Mike will get exactly 5 points. Because multiplication constants work only in case when giver has more points than receiver. :) So, Jane will lose 5 points which she gave and will receive a bonus for giving (0.05 * 5).
