Thanks for Post/Topic feature

Postby 3X00-Modified » Tue Aug 04, 2015 11:58 am


Ok so now if you notice on your screen over by the edit, report and facebook/google share buttons there is now a thumbs up.... You can thank users for specific topics or indivudual posts. This will then show under your user profile of how many people you've thanked, or how many times you have been thanked for a post or topic. It will then rate these topics based on thank's over the whole forum.

Here is a quick run down for the description on the forum mod.

  • MOD adds the ability to thank the author of the post (or cancel thanks to the author).
  • MOD works through a new permission access to the forums.
  • Switch option to receive notifications about thanks to UCP-Board preferences.
  • To view a list of thanks, need to allow global users permission "Can view list of all thanks" tab Misc. When you install a mod the permission added to the next roles: Standard Features, Limited Features, All Features and the members of the group Registered users.
  • Rating is built on a number of thanks for the posts. For 100% rating is the highest number of thanks for post (leader). Rating the remaining posts is defined as a percentage of the ranking leader.
    For example, the maximum number of thanks for post #1 = 10. This is 100%. Then post #2 with 5 thanks will have a rating of 50% (10/5). Post #3 with 3 thanks will have a rating of 33,3% (10/3), etc.
    If the post #1 will receive another thanks (10 +1 = 11), his rating will remain 100% (as leader). Rating post #2 is 45.5% (11/5), rating post #3 is 27.3% (11/3).
    Position ranking is determined by the number of thanks. Topics rating is made up of the sum of the topic's posts thanks. Forum's rating is made up of the sum of the forum's posts thanks.

This is something I've used on other sites and like it. Sure saves a short "thank you" posts when that is all that is needed.
