Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down & Reputation points

The Post Ratings system allows you to Rate posts with one of a number of different ratings. These ratings include Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, Informative and Agree and provide an easy way for you to indicate how you feel about a particular post. Only one rating can be given per post.

In order to rate posts, you must be a Stormtrack member. A New Member will not have sufficient privileges to rate posts and must be promoted to Member before they can do so.

The post ratings buttons will appear towards the bottom right of the post.
(On touch screen devices, the post rating buttons are always visible).

The ratings given to a particular post are shown below the post on the left.

Thumbs Up, Informative and Agree can be selected once per post per member and each earn one reputation point per click. Example: You post about the supercell environment differences between 5/19 and 5/20, 2013 and 6 members give you a thumbs up and 2 give you informational props. This will equal 8 reputation points.

Thumbs Down will result in a negative reputation point. So if you post something silly, ignorant, or controversial and get three thumbs down, those will reduce your reputation points by 3 points, effectively reducing your reputation. That is bad. Post quality, informative content and avoid snarks and your reputation will soar!
