Updates to the OBC Member Stars has been made




Hi Folks,

I decided to give people additional points based on the number of posts they have made. This impacts your starts ( Star Star Star ). I realized that many of our long-time members made lots of contributions before the ability to "Like" a post was added. It seems only fair to recognize people's contributions to the discussions. If you have any questions, please let me know. I made this update Monday, so it has already taken effect.

Cheers,
Will

Does it use the same scale as the likes? Took me a little digging to figure that one out.

Okay, okay, okay...

The stars were strictly a measure of how many "likes" your posts have received over the last couple of years. In other words, a merit-based system. You make a great post and a lot of people like it, you get points which eventually equate to stars. However, I realized that many members had made hundreds or even thousands of posts before the Like button was implemented. I decided to award some additional points (a one-time only event) based on the total number of posts a member has made. This meant some people got bumped up to a level where they received additional stars.

Anyway, it all seems a little trivial now, but some folks were miffed that they had contributed a lot, but did so prior to the like system and had less stars than they deserved. Problem solved, I hope. And, yes... I know that a great many of you think the stars are silly and unimportant and that's fine too.

Anyway, I hope you all remember that you're all stars to me. Rainbow Star Beer Banana Beer Star Rainbow
