Love this mod, and I'm about to use it to encourage song critiques on my forum...new topics (critique requests) cost the user 5 points, but replies (song critiques given) earn 10 credits ... luckily, I've got someone helping me out with disabling earnings for replying to your own topic.
now a new problem/concern has arisen, raised by one of my forum members: I don't want my mods to have to act as points police, ensuring that chit-chat doesn't earn credit. So...here's what I need:
1st reply member Y makes in topic ABC earns member Y 10 points
2nd reply that member Y makes within topic ABC earns member Y 5 points
3rd and subsequent replies that member Y makes within topic ABC earns member Y 1 point each
(member Z can come along at any point and his/her first reply in topic ABC earns him/her 10 points as well, then 5, 1, and so on)
Would this be easy to do??? (I'm not a mod writer
) Or, has anyone done something like this before?
If that's just way too hard to code, then is there a way to set up rewards such that the first reply (regardless of member, unless it's the topic author, who gets nothing for replying) earns 10 points, the second reply earns 9, the third reply earns 8, all the way down to 1...or, something similar to this???
Thanks for any and all advice!
