Q. What are those reps agree/disagree things?



A. Reps means "reputation".

When someone agrees or disagrees with you, or likes a post of yours or doesn't like it, they can click on "agree" or "disagree" and it will give you 1 point or take away 1 point.  It's just fun so everyone play nice  kidsfighting

I gave everyone at least 1 for completing an intro Wink (Maybe we'll give everyone 10 for every year they were on the Madina since 2000?)

You need to have a certain number of posts before you can start repping! and you can only do 1 an hour I think.

I have not been very active on the board of late and although lurking, am posting only infrequently despite being quite an old member.  I recently noted the 'reps' thing on the side of peoples names when they post - what does this signify...sorry if someone's already asked that question lol  must have missed the explanation somewhere

I just noticed the "reps" as well. I don't see where we can select "agree" or "disagree" though.

ws,

Ilyas I think you need a certain amount of posts before you can "rep" someone... I think I'll change the buttons to "like" and "meh" to go along with facebook or something Wink

Salaams Alaykum Br. Ilyas,
It takes 50 posts before you become a junior member.... and any non-newbie rank allows you to rep.

Then you have the power of the rep (which appears as 'agree' or 'disagree' as the lovely sister Jannah pointed out).

I don't think it has any substantial impact on your experience on the site, although, if you could associate it with medals (like foursquare achievements) it would make this forum ever so much more addictive.

Quote
"A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon"
--- Napoleon Bonaparte

Also, it is not clear if the reps follow the physics law of conservation of mass (i.e. you 'give' one away when you 'agree' with someone) or are a divine gift that keeps flowing (like sunlight? --- i.e. you don't lose any).

I think that when I 'repped' someone earlier, I lost one... or maybe it was something I said that did not meet the approval of my esteemed peers? (and they decided to bash me with the 'disagree' stick?)

Consider them to be the 'virtual' equivalent of belly rubs (good kitty, good kitty.... meeowr).

Thank you for taking your time to reply. lol everyone loves a good belly rub.

Jannah sis, I like that idea. It will give the site a more friendlier non formal feel to it.

I wouldn't mind so more reps too - I mean 9 is pretty cool, but I feel so inadequate when i see someone who has more reps than posts!! That must be there are saying few words, but ones that are well, agreeable to readers. yet, I do realize I don't say much of anything substantial or contribute to the main discussions on the forum, so it's all good in the end. Also, I did lose 2-3 within a short time when it came to Sis J's "letter to a terrorist" (as I was supporting her opinion) and the heated discussion that followed, so I felt proud actually.  Smiley

Sr. Nafs - There isn't anyway to see that - as far as I know, though, yes, I would like to know which post was "agreed to" though you can find this on other comment systems (I have Disqus on my blog, which shows how many people liked a comment or in the case of fellow Disqus users, who actually liked it).

i repped you.

i tried to rep myself. didn't work.

i tried to rep myself again.  didn't work.

it still doesn't work!

i think i'll try again....

hey jannah, "your board is %&^&^%.  the rep function is messed up"

oh wait...it's true you can't  rep yoursel?? oh man...am i the only idiot who didn't know that?

i just tried to unrep myself for that idiocy...but that didn't work either.

i tried to unrep myself again...didn't work.

this is getting frustrating.

maybe if i press the agree and disagree buttons at the same time it'll work; like when pressing ESCAPE doesn't do anything exciting by itself...but if you press it together with DELETE and some other keys...you can blow up your computer...(you've never done that?  man, am i the only one who can get my computer to puff smoke?)

i think i need mr bean to come back from the dead to help me out.  maybe we can strike a deal to rep each other.  but then again he's as daft as me, so that might not work.

best wishes and happy ramadan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(i've just had iftar; so i am pretty happy)

Hey Sis Fozia, who you callin' a kid?! LOOOL! Yes, I try to be silly online, since I have to be so serious most of the time in real life (though I am silly around certain family members) and online to a certain extent of course. I'm 28, but at times, I feel as if I'm in my early 20s or maybe even late teens - I had to mature during that time for personal reasons, so you'll be seeing more silliness from me insha'allah!  Smiley Grin

ws,

yes there's no way to know right now... i think in an upgrade or a mod one day we could possibly add the feature. the downside tho is that it can cause some drama when ppl "negative rep" someone, so dunno...
