Since I introduced an up-voting system (suggested as a neat feature by Svanya) many members have taken a liking to it - up-voting posts they enjoy. Each time a memeber up-votes another member's posts, whether they be forum topics or front page editorials, the author receives one rep point. Members can not up-vote the same post more than once and authors can not give themselves Rep points by up-voting their own posts. Basically, it is a means of showing how the community values one another and their work.
Another neat feature which I discussed with our co-admin Gavin was a game-style leaderboard, where members would be ranked within the community. Since the up-voting system has had time to kick in and populate, I've launched the Member Leaderboards page - which displays the Top 50 members based on REP value.
Now, of course older posts can be up-voted but before the up-voting system was in place, none of these members gained rep. Rep will require new up-votes, but as admin I can appoint additional Rep points to veterans who have contributed to the community over the past 5 years.
If you want to see where you rank, check out the Leaderboards page! If you're a veteran member and wish to have your Rep reimbursed to improve your community rank, simply PM me. I know who all our regulars and veterans are and will be happy to boost your Rep.
As always, feedback is welcome!
Yeah nice to see im 27th with 5,416 Essays lol...
Posting for 5 years ;) Guess content and opinion mean more than words typed lol
Great to be apart of this community and read everyone's views, and i know its chore to read mine lol.... Been some amazing discussions on here, and i had some crazy thories over the years lol
Nice to see some close, other well IMO better than were Fox actually going...
Bring on may 19th so we can see how close my theories and Source material is.... or if the AVP Galaxy leaks and what they believed comes true (which make more of a mockery than Phantom Menace did with Star Wars lol).
Keep up the good work guys.

Big Dave, I will be adding a significant boost to your Rep, you definitely would have gained a lot had this function been active when you started haha. Look for the boost in your profile any time!
Oh yes, plenty. lol Just upped your rep Big Dave! Took into account all your posts and how members value / interact with them. Needless to say, your rank has improved. haha
I'm thinking of adding an up-vote option to replies as well, considering not everyone starts topics all the time. Some prefer just to reply to existing ones. If you guys think that would be worth the effort, I'll add it to my To-Do list.
Yay, Big Dave is now exactly where he should be! :)

It would be nice if
All threads have
A view counter.
Wonder how high up I would be of we had this when I started? No biggie.
I think upvoting comments would be cool
Jack of all trades. Master of none
@Oduodo, As of about 3 weeks ago, all threads do have an active view count. However views prior to this were stored in a different manner and were not transferred. You can see the views each topic gets beside the Replies column. There's also a tab under "Forum" that links to "Most Viewed Topics".
Dropped down to ninth place, but still satisfied
