[ABD] Post, Topic and Karma Rating System

Post by andy2295 » Wed Apr 15, 2009 7:23 pm

Modification Name: Post, Topic and Karma Rating System
Author: andy2295

Modification Description::After many requests we have decided to develop and improve a system based around the abandoned Alfretion mod along with ideas from the abandoned Novan mod. This mod/system allows users to vote on a post or topic using an intuitive mouse clickable 5 star interface, that also doubles as a display. It allows users to communicate to each other how they feel about each others posts and also about each other. It also provides admins and moderators detailed information on users contributions to the board.

It has a number of modules such as karma, shadow, penalty and points and each can be enabled or disabled separately. The karma module calculates the karma of users based up on the recent rating they received. The shadow module can ingeniously determine what users would have voted. The penalty module helps prevent abuse by disallowing abusing users to vote. Voting can be restricted by points gained though the points module.

Features:

Post/Topic Rating:

Post rating by graphics interface
Requires user registration for xx days.
User to have posted xx posts.
User to have posted within xx days of today.
User has not abused the system in the past. (only applies if the penalty module is enabled)
User has modpoints left. (only applies if the modpoints module is enabled)

Main Admin Features:

Period posts are open for voting (days): users can no longer vote on a post after the post was posted xx days ago.
Voting requires membership period (days): users can only vote if they have been a member of your board for at least xx days.
Voting requires post count: users can only vote if they have at least xx number of posts.
Ignored permillage of votes (on the edges): approximately this amount of votes are ignored in determining the score, assuming the votes are normally divided. This is done in an attempt to discard votes from users who like to abuse the system.
Karma module provides the (weighted) average rating over a period that fades out by dividing this period in to intervals. This way the youngest interval has a greater influence and the oldest. I.e. from now to 30 days ago has a greater influence than 30 days ago to 60 days ago.
Shadow module is a mathematics algorithm that figures out what your users would have voted, by comparing voting history of users.
The chance the shadow vote being correct: A lower chance setting allows for a less accurate, and therefor more, shadow votes. A higher chance setting gives more guarantees about the accurately of the shadow votes.
Shadow algorithm interval: Minimum votes cast per user requirement: A high value should save the algorithm processing time by removing users who are likely have no compatible voting. A lower value gives the highest change the algorithm can cast shadow votes.
Penalty module. This is a maths algorithm that blocks users who give scores out of the normal spectrum.
Points module. This module is a way of rewarding users who post. Users need these points to be able to vote and can collect them by posting. The number of modpoints can be based on the rating their post gets. Points are also or can be based on Karma.

Some questions answered

How do i give users Karma?

The karma module calculates the karma of users based up on the recent rating they received. You dont physically give Karma as well as post ratings.

What does shadow do?

The shadow module can ingeniously determine what users would have voted.

What are penalties?

The penalty module helps prevent abuse by disallowing abusing users to vote. Voting can be restricted by points gained though the points module.

Just a quick suggestion, rather than saying

Code: Select all

The board requires you to be registered and logged in to view this forum.
it would be more helpful to say something like

Code: Select all

The board requires you to be registered and logged in to vote.
Other than that, great MOD. :)
