    There is a new forum function that has been installed - it's the Forum "Experience"
    http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/xperience.php

    I've been talking about it for a few weeks now, and we've finally installed it and turned it on. What we intend to do with this is to incentivize certain aspects of the forum - we can give out awards for things like most active social group, most active poster, most popular poster, most infractions received ;p, members with the most postings upgraded to the Meister Beat, etc.

    There are both awards and achievements - the thing is, the moderators and I need to work out the bugs, and tweak it a bit for the next couple of weeks. I hope you will post your questions and suggestion in this thread here.

    I also hope that you will explore this a bit - there is the link above and also in your user profile. Please post your input here. :D

    One of the first things you'll notice are the three bars by your user name. These indicate what level you are at, how many points you need to get to the next level, and your activity. This is one function that needs to be seriously tweaked, so don't get too caught up in that. :D

    Never mind - I've turned that function off until the mods and I wrap our heads around it :D

    Casinomeister,

    The new Experience system looks to be a bit of fun.

    I appear to have received a "Player Assist Award". I always take 'em whenever I can get 'em, but what is this all about?

    Like I said, we're still working out the bugs. Jk :p

    The "Player Assist Award" is a monthly award given to the most active i-Gaming rep. The rep will be given credit and showcased in one of the sidebars for the following month. We're still working on this :p

    A few questions...

    Errr, what is the Tagger thing?
    And how does the experience points work?

    And a non Forum experience question, sorry! I tried to access a member blog but received a message I wasn't allowed access. I've received these before on several occassions, is it something I did or is it something the blogger did? Sorry for the derail...

    I just noticed this and wasn't sure if it was an error? This user only has 40 odd posts yet has three separate 1000 point icons. Haven't seen this elsewhere on the forum so wasn't sure what was happening?

    Nah your eyes are deceiving you. It seems the green dots are those you see when you start your computer.

    Hmm. I'm not sure how I feel about being the first recipient of this "Player Assist Award" written off as a system bug.

    Still, I take 'em when I can get 'em, so Thanks.

    I looked at some of the new stats in the forum. There are some strange things there, for example the "top posters" stats. I see that Votran has written 351 posts in the last 60 days (avr 5,8 per day) :D

    Noticed something odd, think it's happened before. I get a notice of an Award and then it says something like the following:

    I did? Not that I was aware of. Doubtless I did something inadvertently but ... dinged if I know what that was.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    PS. trying to fix the problem(s) with my blog re others being able to read and comment, both of which should be enabled. Apparently not there yet. :confused:

    later: looks like other are getting this "returned Award" thing too. Or am I not understanding how this works, what "returned" means?

    According to the stats, you have written 370 posts in the last 60 days so you are the nr 1 top poster. Thats is 6,1 in average per day. So you deserve an Activity Award :D (but again, I do not think that these stats are correct)

    But seriously, I also got a couple of notifications about some awards the other day and a new notice today when one of them was removed from me. I personally find these things a bit unnecessary, but I can understand that some will enjoy these new features. Is it possible to at least choose to turn off these notifications regarding awards? I only want to be notified when I receive a PM.

    Shoot! I'm lucky to have the few I have!!! :p

    I, too, am a bit overwhelmed by all the new achievements, awards, etc. I am just a simple ol' poster. I do enjoy reading the blogs though, so hope that gets fixed. Thought it was just me restricted for some reason.

    Like I said, lots of tweaks need to be made :p

    I'm exempting Vortran from the awards since he's just a robot (he alerts the moderators and me with "report a posts", that's why his post count is so high).

    The rest I'll be dedicating some time tomorrow to square away. It's a holiday today, so I'll be busy doing other things besides tweaking the forum :D

    I think you "give back" an award when someone overtakes you :p

    LMAO And I thought I was confused BEFORE the changes. Now I can be an experienced tagger who can overtake another poster to give back something which I didn't know I took in the first place. But I'm a hyperactive member in overdrive who has 3 friends, at least I didn't get the troublemaker award :D BUT I'm happy cause now I can read the blogs!!!!

    BTW, very nice blog maxd, thoroughly enjoyed the read!:thumbsup:

    I think the "discussion ender" icon should be a fork, as in "stick a fork in it..." :thumbsup:
