Trust Points - Trust Points System measures a users trustworthiness & loyalty - Created By: Davideo7
The Trust Point system is a system that measures a user's loyalty to vizzed and their trustworthiness among the forum users. When a user gets enough Trust Points, they become a 'Trusted Member' which gives them a few extra privileges and sets them apart from everyone else.

Trust Points are meant to be earned by posting quality posts and by earning respect from fellow users and staff. Trust Points are NOT meant to be purchased or asked for and anyone asking for them is at risk of losing all their current points and possibly even banned.

How many points can you give at a time?
5-9 Points = 1 Point
10-24 Points = 2 Points
25-49 Points = 3 Points
50-99 Points = 4 Points
100+ = 5 Points

How many points can you take away?
This will depend on your powerlevel
Site Staff = -1 Point
Local Mod = -2 Points
Global Mod = -3 Points
Admin = -4 Points
Owner = -5 Points

If a staff member cannot give a certain number of points, they cannot take away that same number. For example, if Local Moderator can only give a max of 1 point to a single user, than the most they can take away is 1 point but if that Local Mod can give 3 points, THAN they can take away their limit of 2 points.

How do you earn a Trusted Member position?
If you get at least 5 Trust Points

What happens if your Trust Points go negative?
If your trust points hit -5 or lower than your powerlevel changes to Newbie.

If you have a Trusted Member position, how do you lose it?
If your trust points hit 0 or lower than you'll lose your trust position.

How do you give someone Trust Points?
By going to their profile and clicking the 'Rate User' link.

How many times can you rate someone?
The following shows the total amount of points you can give out per week
5-10 Points = 2 Point
10-24 Points = 4 Points
25-49 Points = 6 Points
50-99 Points = 8 Points
100+ = 10 Points

Negative points become positive in this scale. So for example, a -2 rating counts as 2 points.

The amount of Trust Points you can give per a week resets at the beginning of each week, Monday morning server time (no rollovers).

If you re-rate someone, the new rating is not relative to the old rating in regards to how many points you can give out. So for example, if you rate someone a 3 and than later rate them a 4, the first time you use up 3 of your weekly points and the 2nd time you use up 4 of your weekly points (a total of 7 points used). Likewise, if you rate someone 4 points and later rate them 3 points, same thing.

You can lose points for positively rating someone who loses points
You must be very careful of who you rate positively because if you rate someone positively and the staff rate that some person negatively anytime afterward, you also lose points.

Here's the formula:
Your rating / 10 * the staff's negative rating

Here's 2 examples:
1. If you rate someone a 3 and a staff later rates that person a -1, you lose 0.3 points
2. If you rate someone a 2 and a staff later rates that person a -3, you lose 0.6 points

This will make users think twice about who they rate before they rate them. This will also greatly reduce trust point abuse.

NOTE to Moderators: If you previously rated someone a negative and later decide to rate them positive, you should give them a 0 rating first and than positive. The reason is because rating them a 0 will recalculate all of the penalties users got for positively rating that user that you previously rated negatively.

When you receive positive Trust Points, you'll receive a notification that you received Trust Points. However, it will no longer tell you who sent them.
