  9. You won't receive a warning if you've done nothing wrong. Your reputation may be adjusted fairly based on the circumstances though. In any case, if you're concerned about users targeting you and awarding you with excessive reputation for no reason, please report it if you notice it happening. We appreciate you did not break any rules, and you did not force anyone to like your content. However, your reputation still needed to be reset because you obtained mass amounts of reputation from others when it was undue. If users continue to award trophies for no reason, each case will be reviewed accordingly. There are lots of factors to consider, including the number of times it's happened and how long it's been happening for. We should avoid creating unnecessary drama here.

  12. Please open a ticket in the Report Scam department, and explain your situation in full, providing as much evidence as possible. Please ensure your ticket subject is five words or more. If you already have a ticket open, please wait patiently for a reply.
  13. I have edited your post to comply with the following guideline: Specific users should not be accused here.
  14. “Thanks”, “Cool”, “Haha”, and “Wow” reactions will also give a reputation point. This is the exact same as before, and has not changed. Apologies as this contradicts information in the original topic when it was first posted (which was edited soon after), but there was a misunderstanding. This information has been added to the topic post. To clarify one last time, the only changes that were made are as follows: Likes no longer give reputation. The trophy has been added, which should be used to award quality posts. If trophies continue to be awarded for no discernible reason, each case will be looked into.
  15. Just to be clear, posts like this shouldn't be awarded trophies: Trophies = quality posts. They deserve reputation and may be thoughtful, and may have taken effort to produce. Other reactions would be more suitable here. Likes no longer give reputation, so they can be used here instead (that's what the change is intended for).
  16. The abusers are dealt with individually, but the change is also about providing more freedom for everyone to use likes, whether they've broken rules or not. Reputation should be given to quality content though. The forum guidelines indicate this too: If there's a better way to define reputation (or if it needs redefining), I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. I believe the trophy would be a catch-all reaction for this. Reddit gold is given to funny posts on Reddit (although it's obviously a different environment), so the trophy could cover funny posts here too, if they deserve it. Nonetheless, if you believe there's a better icon than a trophy, this can be considered. The main purpose of this change is that 'likes' no longer give reputation (and can be used freely) and a new reaction has been created specifically to award quality posts. The trophy was an afterthought. Thank you for the comments!
  17. Yes, I believe it is beneficial to separate likes and trophies. Before this change, Likes were frequently being used to show affection and enjoyment regardless of post quality, which isn't in the spirit of the reputation system. With the addition of the trophy icon, these same users can continue liking anything they want - but this time they won't be damaging the reputation system, and they won't have to worry about reputation abuse. The trophy hasn't simply replaced the 'Like' reaction - it's also allowed 'Like' to be used more freely without imposing on forum guidelines. Surely it's better to add more freedom of expression (which we've done by freeing up the 'Like' button) than to simply remove all the reactions. I'd argue that users who post New Power Testing topics each week are far more exposed to receiving easy reputation points than things that volunteers or contributors post, but I take your point nonetheless. With the new changes, we've now potentially introduced a system to prevent this from happening. You can now 'like' these updates (i.e. to literally show that you like it) without awarding reputation if the user doesn't deserve it because they're simply a messenger etc. No new rules or restrictions have been created. The rules that Angelo listed above are existing rules that pre-date this change, most of which were not enforced as Andre indicated (and there's some grey areas in there). They are not new concepts specifically introduced with this change (although arguably they would be easier to enforce now that users have the full set of reactions available to them (including the freed-up likes), so there'd be no excuses for not using them). I think we all want users to have fun, but not to the detriment of the guidelines (that is, abusing reputation) or there'd be chaos. Also bear in mind that users misusing reputation can spoil the enjoyment of other users who worked hard to gain their reputation through effort. We have to think about them too.
  18. It might affect enthusiasm and enjoyment though, if people can't react to things (the same as if reactions were removed here too). They're a nice addition to the forums and it's a shame if they're taken away. It should be even easier to spot reputation abuse now, if someone keeps giving trophies for low quality posts. Users now have the full set of reactions available to them (including 'likes' to show affection and enjoyment), so there can't be any excuses for not using them.
  19. This change is not restricting you. It's allowing you to use the 'like' reaction more freely than before. Your concern about Advanced Member (i.e. making it more accessible) is not related to this change. You can still receive reputation for quality posts, exactly as before. It's just a different icon now (i.e. a trophy). Also, the only users that should receive warnings are those that don't follow the guidelines. If you believe any guidelines should be changed, you may open a new topic with your proposal and it can be discussed (we're always listening!) Equally, if you believe someone has been warned unfairly, this can be reported to forum staff. Thank you for the comments so far!
  20. To simplify things, the trophy should be used to award quality content - the way reputation was always intended. That's exactly what we've done! Under the previous system, Likes were frequently being used because it's the obvious reaction for showing affection and enjoyment, and there was no useful alternative. Besides the heart, your only choices were 'Cool', 'Haha' or 'Thanks', which aren't the same. The problem was that our 'Like' reaction intrinsically awarded reputation, and there was no choice in the matter. In summary, if you wanted to express affection or enjoyment for something (eg "I love you" messages), you were forced to award reputation too. We identified this flaw in the system, and we provided a solution. You can now show affection and enjoyment for things without being forced to award reputation. There's now a separate reaction for rewarding quality content. To be clear, we haven't introduced any new restrictions. The guidance about when to award reputation is unrelated to this change. But since we're making an announcement about reputation, it was a useful place to post it. The end result of this change is that users now have more freedom to express themselves. That is, users can now use the 'Like' reaction without being forced to give reputation. We're opening doors, not closing them. Hopefully, we may see more reactions and interactions across the forum in general now, because users won't be afraid of awarding likes (in fear of abusing reputation) anymore. We haven't introduced any new rules. If anything, we're providing more freedom to users, because they can now 'like' something without being forced to award reputation. This was considered but decided not to sacrifice likes in these places. Exactly! The heart icon represents affection, in popular culture, whereas the trophy has a different meaning altogether. Hopefully, the two aren't confused.
  21. I was sceptical about the number of 'sticky' powers on xat, and if there's enough to form a super collection. The verdict is yes, there are enough. Here's my list of 'sticky' powers below: Blobby [175] (sticky body) Candy [129] Chocolate [304] Cupcake [274] Cups [486] (sticky drinks) Fruit [48] Fruities [245] Glob [357] (sticky body) Marshie [530] Popcorns [404] Slimefx [508] Sticky [243] And there's more, which I wasn't 100% decided on: Feast [98] (food power - not necessarily sticky) Pizzas [498] (more greasy than sticky) Stick [59]
  22. Thank you for your comment! As a main owner yourself, would you prefer these Changelogs to be password-protected? Or do you think setting the minimum rank is sufficient? Or both? Also, do you think the inner/outer background URLs should be shown in full, or do you agree a preview image is sufficient for privacy reasons?
  23. With the current idea, a new (Changelog) power will be needed, separate to Events. Interesting idea to add this feature to Events though!
  24. This idea was suggested by Vevrok (10000123) on Feedback chat, which we developed and created concept art for. A similar suggestion was posted here, but that topic lacks detail and doesn't mention changelogs (rather just a way to see who edited your chat). The idea Privacy Why? Negatives Thanks for reading! Please let us know your constructive thoughts below. Credit to Four (4444) for writing this, Elea (1313) for the concept art, and once again to Vevrok (10000123) for suggesting the idea!

    We're not working on this particular idea, i.e. the ability to make someone a main owner without the reveal of a password, but we're working on many other suggestion designs so stay tuned for those very soon!
