You get +2 for up, -1 for down, but in the totals on the individual posts an up vote changes the value by 1, while a down vote is -1. So if a post goes -10, to get it back to zero awards 20 points. Basically, if you have a post go from 0 to -10 to 0, the user gains 10 points; I'm not sure that's intended, is it and I just missed the memo?
Is this intended?
That's what Brian said when he rolled it out.
You can vote up or down on any comment, forum post, or diary entry. Up votes are worth two points, down votes minus one. This, combined with the points you get for posting stuff, should make it hard for anyone who's not seriously annoying the great majority of the commenters to see their points dip as a result.
Edit: I see what you mean now.
There's a bug in the accounting system on the points; the intended behavior there is for a + vote to be worth 2 points both to the comment and the user. now it's just 2 to the user.
also as far as the slant towards positive points: I didn't want to tamp down disagreement too much so I made it so that it would take a considerable agreement that posts were not worthwhile to cause big negatives.
On a side note, do you need help debugging code?
if you're up for it, sure. anyone who knows PHP, Drupal, or CSS can email me and I'll point you at a sandbox site you can tweak.
I know .NET, HTML, XML, and the like. My .NET knowledge includes OOP as well. I'll email you in a sec.
Edit: Can you include an open issues list?
I beleive you can find the issues list by clicking around Useful Stuff on the top right.
I got nothin'.
Yeah, you know me.
It's been a slow day
