Arrow Rep, all members help

Well, I'm a bitch, but I'm having some problems and this is a thing that goes out to all the members, mods and admins included, but mostly members. This is about the site and business.

IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE REP GUIDE, YOU CAN STILL ANSWER THE BELOW QUESTIONS!
DO NOT vote no on anything just to start some 'controversy'

I need to figure out some things and decide how to proceed further with the Rep Guide. Here's a little questionnaire; the questions will have a sentence following them telling what the effect will be.

1) Should the Reputation Guide stay or be trashed permanently?

2) Should the Reputation Guide be split into two threads, one for the Quick Reference and one for the bigger complete Rep Guide? This will make people who have slower computers be able to choose whether they want the Quick Ref, shorter, or the Rep Guide, longer and harder on load time.

3) Should the Reputation Guide be advertised more? This will save some space in my signature while also publicizing the Rep system.

4) Should the Rep Guide be moved to some where more easily to see? Like the HQ (here)? This will help people notice it and see it more!

5) Should the Quick Reference (second post) be smaller than it is now? This'll make the guide shorter guide shorter than it is now, ensuring people will be educated on the Rep system.

6) Finally, has the Rep Guide been helpful to you in any way? If you haven't read it/some of it, don't vote!!!

Guys: as far as I know, the Rep system isn't going anywhere, so don't bitch about how it isn't being used or isn't that important. Besides, it doesn't need to be used constantly; just a few times a week is ok. Just because you don't get any Rep doesn't mean that it's not being used.
Just deal with it - if we can publicize it more, then maybe it will be used more!

Any other side opinions are welcome. Express yourself!

Orchdork has been added to my ignore list. I can't see the content of his posts, although I know he has posted. He's been a real ass lately!


Though I can see what's in quotes. So the reason I care is, I want to know what to do. My diary Cloud Nine is only there to host the stupid guide, it's not for anything else any more.

I feel like this is the only service I provide on VT. I feel that it's something I can take care of, stand up for, and help others with, since I'm not good at talking people through their problems.


I guess I should talk to someone on this site about it...but who can I really trust? Everyone seems to have their own problems to be depressed about and I feel like the only one who doesn't want to kill myself.
I don't feel like anyone trusts me so I put the guide out so people could see that I can be proud of some hard work...it took me 2 days to write the first guide...


Orchdork, you can really hurt someone's feelings. And you're staying on my damn ignore list.
EDIT: and orchdork, don't talk to Jess like that. >:0[

Double edit: Alex, it would be nice to hear your opinion on it.

Donnie don't talk like that! I's obvious that you've spent a lot of time making the rep guide, and it has helped a lot of people, people who have left, people who are still here, and it will help the new members when they join. You should be proud of what yo uhave sone and i think it should be advertised more, maybe made a sticky in VT HQ, also add it to the FAQ.

Also I trust you Donnie, you know we can talk about anything! You are doing a good thing for VT, and soe people are just too ignorant to see that.

I like the rep guide. Its comprehensive and I believe it is well written.

I think we could have it moved to the HQ maybe, get more views. Also a Global Announcement could help as well, because it would be nice to have the system used a bit more.

Orchdork, it's interesting that you voted the guide wasn't helpful and then you posted that it was.


Ok, decisions have been made - Alex and I talked. The guide is staying. It has now been moved to VT HQ and the Quick Ref has been completely reformatted. Other plans are popping up for it. A Global Announcement has been made to advertise the guide
All I can do is thank Alex for putting it in a place that it will really be recognized! Thank you!

On a side note, (edit) Alex, do you think we should split the Rep Guide in two, and in the announcement we can give members a choice? One bigger one, complete, and one smaller one, for slower computers?
And also change the name to Reputation System (Rep) so people will know we're talking about something that's on every page?

so you want two seperate announcements?
I dont think thats a good idea
I dont like having allot of announcements or stickies it looks like shit when you click on a forum and thers a ton of them
having one is good ya cause as long as we have the system we should have something that explains it
but i dont want two

Naw, not two announcements, just give them a choice inside the one to go to the shorter one or the longer one. That would require two stickies.
But that's cluttered too so the idea might just be trashed

you could have them as just two locked threads and then make an announcement and have direct links to each so they get basic info at the announcement and then they can pick which one and click the link that takes them to the thread
