Re: Upcoming Help Changes + Feedback

The whole idea here is to find a way to allow new users to get involved in the community. When they see how the bravo system works and take a look at the current leaderboards, they would freak out when they see someone crossing 1000 bravos within the past 30 days. Heck i would run away from it if i were to start over again. For this reason, i would have to agree that either disable leaderboards or show a list of top contributors (usernames) only and not the bravo count.

At the same time, add a limit to how many bravos you can give based on the status (i.e. Mayors can give out 50 per day). I have my own reasons for this which i would not like to elaborate at this time Smiley Tongue

I don't know. When I arrived here last May I saw a group of names with incredible numbers. It didn't deter me. I saw it as something to aspire to. Putting in WAY more time than it's worth it seems I managed to get there. It doesn't take a lot of time to get the rewards. But what's wrong with recognizing those high acheivers?

I could agree not to show the Bravo count on the leaderboard. I think the leaderboard of some sort is good to keep around though.

 

I will wholeheartedly disagree with limiting Bravos. Seems awfully undemocratic.

There already is a limit of bravos.  It used to be around 50 but was raised.  I don't think it is undemocratic.  I think of it as a budget and you only have so many in a day to give out you are going to choose wisely.  Aother forum I am on has the same thing with "Reputation" points where they are liited to the number you can give out each day.

Again, i have my own reasons that some of you may know and would agree to, but until they think about this implementation, i will not say.

I did a quick search and I see this has been a bugbear of yours since 2016. I didn't see a mention of limits though in that quick search.

Re: Upcoming Help Changes + Feedback

I would say that there has to be a bravo limit.  Otherwise, someone could sign up to the Community with 5 brand new accounts and on the last day of the rewards cycle, give out 100 bravos each to a certain member.  Rewards might then get paid out before anyone notices.  I realize this is an extreme example, and highly unlikely.

Huh?  This is the first time there has been a discussion on limits of bravos that I have partcipated in so not sure what you searched up?  Gaming of the system?  Yes we have caught a few people gaming the system with multiple accounts but if that isn't what you are referring to I don't what your search was about

Yes. That. They ARE related after all. Isn't that *really* the intent of this limiting idea?

Gamers have been called out. Methods are in place and working. All good. No need to limit. Undemocratic.
