Site Changes, 7th Febuary 2005
I have introduced a "help rating system" (aka HelpScore) that allows you to mark as post a being as helpful or not by clicking the Yes or No links in the bottom left corner of each post (look to the left of the "Profile", "Email" buttons where it says "Helpful? Yes/No").
The idea of this system is to encourage quality over quantity when posting. If someone answers your question with a really good answer, click the "Yes" button to show your appriciation :)
This system is still in beta for the next 48 hours, but the following are being worked on now:
- A page that lists the most helpful members to date
- Helpfulness ratings will have no effect in "off topic" areas such as the Coffee Lounge
We will eventually use this HelpScore rating as a guide when selecting new Trusted Penguins as well.
Feedback & Comments welcome, this is still in beta so things can be changed as needed.
