SOLVED Queries re new options

Post by Stardust on Fri 25 Mar 2011, 10:31

Kitkat, you mentioned on another thread that 'Reputation' is
linked to the 'Thanks' thread, but I have questions regarding three other unfamiliar options on the forum:


1) I clicked on 'Multi-quote' but it just gave an ordinary
'Quote' in the 'Reply' box.


2) What do 'Points' correspond to?


3) On some posts there's a plus/minus sign on the top right
– what's that for?

Stardust, I really don't know how this multi-quote thing works. They had this on another forum (one that's now closed down ) and I never did quite work out what its function was. I have pressed multi-quote in replying to this post - and using the quotes icon individually within the post now. Don't know what it's doing, but it seems to be affecting my smileys. It doesn't seem to be accepting my smileys as and when I click them - but when I look in the 'preview' before posting this, it shows my selected smileys all grouped at the bottom of this post!

2) What do 'Points' correspond to?
I think it's something to do with how many posts you make, but not sure ...

3) On some posts there's a plus/minus sign on the top right
– what's that for?
If you hover your mouse over those plus/minuses it says something like "this message has not been voted" Again - I really have no idea!

I think it's a case of "watch, do and learn". I guess we'll find out all these things as we go along.

Edited to add: I just clicked on the plus sign now where it showed in your post here - and it tells me 'Message has been voted'.... (whatever the hell that means) drunken

OK, I have since discovered that the plus & minus signs relate to "voting" for the particular post that it is found in. (As in Facebook and Blogs, people can vote "like" or "dislike" against a post.

When I get round to it, I will swap the plus & minus signs for a thumb-up and thumb-down picture, such as . Should make it easier to understand.
(I think then the amount of likes or dislikes given to members' posts affects their 'Reputation' in their profile).
