We have gone through and revamped the whole rank, reputation and membership system here on CODECALL. The new system should better reflect the activity we have here on CODECALL. Enjoy! Posted Image


1. Ranks

Rank is an indication of participation/activity on the site. As you post more on the site, your rank will increase. As an active participant, a user is helping to foster discussions on the site.

2. Reputation Points

Given by members to posters based on the quality/helpfulness of their posts. A good post will get positive reputation, while a not-so-good post will likely get negative reputation. Reputations are worth -1- point each. This is the ultimate indication of the member’s helpfulness, skills and expertise on this site.

3. Member Group

When you participate more on CODECALL, your membership will be promoted automatically. Group membership is attached to actual privileges and features on the site. For example, a “Senior Member” will be able to customize his profile page with background image.

If you are in the wrong group, please notify us by opening up a ticket in Forum Support.

"Can close own thread" - Where would that be done?

Edit: of course, just after posting this I find it >.>
Anyway for anyone else: above the first post, there's 'topic moderation' you can click on to lock.

Can you confirm that this only allows you to do your own topics?

Yes, the only option is 'lock', and the words 'Topic moderation' where you must click on isn't visible on other people's posts.

I think the edit limitation should be removed on tutorials. Sometimes errors and other feedback can be provided way after the tutorial was originally written, and tutorial writers should be able to update them!

The reason for "edit limit" for the 3 newer member groups is to prevent someone from posting a question and deleting the question after they get the answer. I have also seen older members come in to remove their content after they leave the site. This is obviously detrimental to our community and needs to be capped.

I do agree with you, for the more senior groups (Senior/Expert), we can probably push out the "edit limit" time.

Based on your experience, what is a good time period for someone editing a post? Senior - 3mos, Expert - 6mos?
