Making a thread to cover generic issues that don't really need their own thread.  Just a place to bring their attention to the Admins.


It looks like WRConnected.com has turned into a GoDaddy landing page.

The forwarding works fine for me as well.

Does the Report button in the bottom right corner of a post do anything? It doesn't cause any confirmation dialog to pop up, or any other noticeable action to occur.

You should get a confirmation dialog that asks why you're reporting. I do in Chrome, haven't tried any other browsers.

Odd. Ya you're supposed to. I got your report.

The thing that I'm happiest about is that when we do have an instance of spam (sadly it's bound to happen) that I get numerous reports about it. We've got such an active and engaged community here, so THANK YOU ALL!!

Can you offer some explanation about the "Reputation" feature? Is is replacing the "Thank You" from WW? Generally, most people seem to be at 0.

Presumably you click Rate at the bottom left of a post to express approval/disapproval of a post or poster. The former increments your Reputation while the latter decrements it. I've seen this sort of rating system used on other systems to highlight the most respected posters or those who have made insightful posts. I've also seen it abused, for instance to gang up on a poster or attempt to vote him off the island.

IMO there is a huge difference between the two concepts, Reputation and Rating. The current system, at least as I understand it, confuses the two. There should therefore be two counters, a Reputation for each poster, and a separate Rating for each post.
