Default The Rep System, Some Changes, & a FW Raffle! - 02-08-2010, 09:23 PM
The Rep System is Back!

As many of you may have noted, the reputation system has been introduced back to FlyFFWorld!

A Clean Slate
After a few days of testing, we have decided to reset the reputation points. This is mainly to start over, after our old reputation system was abused. We understand that some of the reptuation earned previously was legitimate, and we are sorry to those members who did not abuse the system ]: .. The mod team believes this is for the best, though. The points reset will take place February 9, Noon, 12 PM PST [eFlyFF Time].

Some New Ground Rules
No reputation system will be without flaw, but in an effort to try and avoid the abuse which happened from last time, we have established some new rules; these rules are now added to the Rules and Policies of FlyFFWorld, and are written below for your convenience:
Reputation System Rules
  • Do not abuse the system. Do not randomly spam positive/negative rep to other members for the sake of gathering more points, or make threads/posts asking for positive/negative reputation.
  • Do not post innapropriate text or images in your comment.
  • All members will be given a warning upon their first violation. A second violation will result in a permanent ban from the reputation system. The posting of porn in comments will be an automatic ban without a warning.
  • For more information about the reputation system, please read The Rep System
Comments/suggestions/questions/thoughts regarding these new rules are welcome.

Some Changes to the System
Along with resetting the points, we have also made these additional amendments:
  • There is a maximum of two reputations one may give out per day
  • Members may not give reputation in private guild forums and the marketplace
  • Now, every 500 Rep Points raises Rep Power by 1, instead of the previous 50

A Reminder of How Reputation Works
For some you, this "reputation system" may be a new thing, or just something you totally forgot about; please read How Rep Works for more information :]


For those of you who may or may not have noticed, the strikethrough BBCode has now been implemented into the system. The code for strikethrough is:

Enjoy! :]


Bye, Bye, Stats & Skills Build Sections
We've hauled all the help threads together into one area for our class discussions, instead of separating them by stats & skills build questions since most people would type threads with multiple questions, not just about their stats & skills, and so that when you are browsing "New Posts," it reads which area it is filed under, and not only "Stats & Skills." Happy posting!


Reminder: FW Raffles!
