  • CS Point Question...

    ...since we're getting alot of new members do you think you could add the CS Point System thread as one of the reads including the COC your suppose to right after you join I just thought since we''re getting a lot of new members they might be confused about the whole thing...But maybe im being retarded and it is already added to the mandatory reads when you join

    I agree that it needs to be better advertised. There's some vets here that still don't know about it. I think the scale needs to be replaced with a worded button like "contribute" or something. That will arouse some people's curosity. If it's just a tiny picture of a scale it's easy to over look again and again.

      Correct...i have came across people who have been here over a year and i say "Thats a kick ass post and you get a CS Point" and they reply "What the hell is that?"

      So maybe we could keep it a sticky in GD or maybe even in every Forum just to remind people

        Last I saw it was not part of the TOS that members are required to read. It can be done, but then it sort of diludes the TOS. I'm not sure that anyone reads the TOS any more than they read the FAQs either though - I know that I personally looked at it when it popped up on my screen and I thought, "Yeah, whatever. ::Click::" so I'm not certain placement there is any more potent than the FAQ and the Feedback, Announcements and General Discussion threads are.

        My point is that it is in the FAQs and such... which... I guess not many people read, just like the threads and the TOS (which I admit even I didn't bother to read).

            It's a good idea, but just as with the little orange cubes we have to represent our accomplishments, the template only allows a certain size of graphic in there - in the case of the scales it's a 21 x 17 pixel picture. Not much we can do with that. We could alter the template of course, but that's roughly 14 or 15 pages of code just to accomodate a new button (of substantial enough size that it does what you're talking about, Benny).

            It could be done however.

            I still feel the best advertising for the system is if you guys keep telling people about it. I mean... there are three big threads on the topic, including one in announcements and one in feedback. It's also located in the FAQs, and we've had like ten or 11 threads about it in ADF at least...

            At some stage it comes down to word of mouth, or people just stumbling upon it if they're not going to look around in the FAQs and stuff to begin with. And yes, I realize the fact that most sites don't ever update their FAQs or change them from the default hampers the impact the FAQs here have, but Broncos Manager did update them all the same.

            Now, an option that might work is if we sent out an email to all the members of the board telling them about the system. That can be done really easily if that's something the admin wanted to do.

            Newbies would still be left to figure it out on their own though - which I imagine they'd do as soon as they got a point for something.

              I'm feelin' ya guys. I definitely do agree that a lot of folks don't know about the system... but it's not like I can just walk over to them, pimp slap them and tell them to read the threads either.

              Though I wouldn't mind trying if the team will cover my bail and legal fees.

                Well, what about the people who don't search by forum, but instead use the 'search' function? They will never see it.

                  It definetly needs more advertisement like TDK said above. A lot of people don't know about it.

                    I don't disagree. It couldn't hurt in any case. I'm just not sure that yet another thread or notice sent in the usual manner will get that done.

                        No, it wouldn't hurt...

                        But at the same time, if 13 threads on the topic and four notices isn't enough, I'm not certain that cluttering the boards with 15 more of each is the answer either.

                        You guys (word of mouth) really are the best form of advertising. That's true in any area of marketing even in the modern world of TV and radio. Word of mouth gets attention more than any other form of advertising.

                        So... do what you do best. Shoot your mouths off!

                            Yeah. I mention it randomly in some of my posts too. Then someone might talk about it a bit or ask about it or something. Just keep mentioning it. As soon as someone takes a good look at the pages they're bound to see the bright orange sqaures...

                            The more we talk about it the more likely those that are unaware will realize what it is.

                              I think TDK has the right idea.

                              How about just changing the icon to two little thumbs, one up & one down. And swithing places with the post number, maybe making IT a little bigger?

                              Maybe you just need a catchier icon, something not so formal. Maybe brighter.



                              Edit....I want to add that there should be at least an announcement sticky in every forum. It's the only way to really "advertise" the system itself. & your going to have to leave that sticky there forever, honestly, if you always want new members to see it. Maybe not every forum, but most of them.
