Is post count that important?

Anyway, if your posts were deleted kasi OT, or threads were deleted like the slumbook, nickname/username threads and you happen to have a post there mababawas din yun sa post count.

Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: MuDrA® on October 28, 2009, 11:08:16 am
^^
in some way YES ... everyone wants to be a hero member or even a moderator ...

kaya nga as i observe my nag flood msg pa nga diba...
minsan out of this world na ang sinasabi, minsan kung ano ano at anik anik na lang ... 

kung ang pag babatayan ng membership dito sa SP is yung time ng membership (like ng date hire bago ka ma promote)  kasi hindi eh newbie ka kanina mayamaya fullmember ka na .. sa Iba achievement yun ...

no offensement  to every one Opinion ko lang to pwede ny ako kontrahin if you want.  ;D

@ sis ilovegabe
 
for me hindi naman important yung points,,nagtaka lang talaga ako,hindi nga ako concern bout hero member or anything else,ang importante sa akin may natutunan ako sa sp furom po.thanks.

Post by: ilovegabe on October 28, 2009, 12:27:22 pm
^ ganun naman talaga sis, we are a member of this community to learn and to share some of what we learned din.  :)

@frankie, your status doesnt mater. Even posting just a smiley can add to your post count, but it will not do any good for the community.

If you want to be a moderator then be a stickler to the rules, dapat law abider ka.
Moderating is a thankless job, wala kang sweldo madami ka pang makakaaway.You should be able to follow rules and should not break or bend it even for your friends.
You should love SP, by showing this you should follow its community rules.
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: MuDrA® on October 28, 2009, 01:07:55 pm
Post show your status here sa SP status of your membership diba nga meron pang nagawa ng topic na yehey finaly full member na ako . nakakatuwa naman isipin na hindi lang to bsta forum na dedevelop din ang friendship dito.

Im not doing this dahil i have interest to be Global Moderator sabi nga ni kieh makikita na lang ng admin ng SP

My Concerns is the Subject and na sagot naman … Yun lang I read also another topic with about sa moderator so nasagot naman yung concern ko.

That’s all thank you.   :-*

tama ka dun sis ilovegabe we need to share kung ano yung natutunan ntin its doesn't matter kung regular member ka.
but we need to respect the other member you need to say politely hindi yung may dating n sarcastic.
that's why nagkakaroon ng misunderstnding.
sis ilovegabe i think frankie need a explanations kung ano yung concernd niya diba dapat sis sagutin muna yung question ni sis frankie.
hindi naman siguro gusto ni sis frankie na mging moderator nagtataka lang kc sya  sana sis before ka magpost ng message ilagay mo yung sarili mo sa taong nagpost ng topics n2.
Thank you. ;)
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: ilovegabe on October 28, 2009, 01:39:24 pm
^ I think I already answered that.

I was not even being sarcastic and I said is as politely as I can.I asked if post count is important and  I just answered the question and added some secret info.  :P

I dont put too many smileys and other stuff in my post because I dont think its needed, it doesnt mean Im being impolite.

Post count doesnt really matter, as Ive said kahit Hero Member ka and all you have posted is yes, yehey and at the SP daily attendance, it doesnt contribute to our community. POV ko lang even 20 lang ang posts mo but full of information naman, then you are truly a member of SP, newbie or not.  :) :) :) :) :)
There. 5 smileys to show I am not being sarcastic, I am just explaining things  :D

Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: Mommy Jhen_Gavyne on October 28, 2009, 02:22:05 pm
the topics is close kc nasagot na ni sis keih.
Sis ilovegabe concern lang ako sa nangyayari sa Sp site kc madalas nasisira ang site ntin.now may case p na nabbawasan ang point nila at sbay dmi ng mga moderator n hindi naman natin kilala dhil sa pagkakaalam ko ang mga moderator lang ay ikaw, sis sis keih,c leela at ang admin ay  si stefie.now curios lang ako bkit ang dming new moderator tpos nababsawan p yung iba ng mga points maari kc sis na napsok ang site ntin ng spammer or virus ky mdalas na nasisira ang site ng Sp
bukod pa dun makikita mo naman yung mga post ng mga newbie na moderator na hlos wl naman post.

ahh, no need to worry. They are doing some revisions siguro. Even moderators are not informed about this.  GT has also the same glitch.

about points...tanong lang kapag nagpost ba sa welcome aboard hindi yun counted sa total posts  ???
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: toughmom moderator on October 28, 2009, 06:13:45 pm
Very very old topics and past news, lapsed events, past issues,  and double postings are being deleted. This may affect member's points count but a necessary step to clear the site. If number of posts, pages and topics are not controlled, it will slow down the site.
Good topics, no matter how old, are still being recycled, moved and merged.

parang di ba unfair na post ka ng post sa isang topic na ala naman sa welcome aboard and yet nilipat dun?meaning ang dami mong post pag nalipat sa welcome aboard balewala na...nakakatamad naman pag ganun? ???
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: toughmom moderator on October 28, 2009, 11:21:05 pm
A lot of replies from those moved topics (not all) are actually against SP rule no. 4 and not related to Parenting anymore which this site stands for. Instead of warning everyone and since the mods felt that these topics bring members together and it makes everyone happy sharing bits of themselves contributing to the good SP website atmosphere, it was decided that it be moved to Welcome Aboard. This is because it serves the same purpose as the other topics posted on the same board. These are simply exchanges of His and Hellos with fellow members.
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: jvcav08 on October 29, 2009, 11:37:57 am
di sana mga MODS di na binawasan yung mga points ng mga nilipat na thread sa welcome aboard..kasi di naman alam ng mga mommies/daddies na ililipat yung so mega post sila sa topics for points di b??then nilipat nyo nawala points nila?so asan naman consideration dun??its not the number of points lang...yung effort at time na dinedicate sa pagpopost...

tsaka anung its not the points na sabi ng isang MODS? eh bakit me status pa tau??bakit naglagay pa ng points??unfair magsalita ng ganun kasi MODS na sya e..

pansin ko lang sa MOds pag me kumalaban nagsasalita agad na mag iissue ng warning..takutan na ba SP ngaun?? ???
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: zmple_mom on October 29, 2009, 11:47:56 pm
ang POINTS ay may POINT!!!
...kasi kung wala walang maghahanap ng kanilang points  ;D

...sa aking palagay nilagay ang posts count kasi ito ay may silbi, may value at may meaning ;D kasi kung wala e di sana eh hindi na nageffort pa ang programmer nito na isama sa pagprogram ng forum na ito! di naman basta basta ang pagtrack ng points noh!

Bakit may points  ??? ano ang value nito  ??? bakit kailngan bilangin pa ang posts  ???

Simpleng sagot mga sisses! kasi dito nakikita ang status ng isang member. kaya nga sa member tab makikita niyo na isinama ang posts counts kasi ito ang nagdedetermine ng iyong status maliban sa details ng isang member

based sa pagkakaanalyze ko ito ganito ang logic ng system

posts count - member status
500+ - hero member
250+ - sr.member
50+ - jr.member
0-49 - newbie

bakit mahalagang malaman ang status ng member  ???
hindi kaila sa atin na kapag may nagpost ng hindi kagandahan at newbie ang status niya, naiisip natin na wala lang to magawa or nagtrip lang. Kung ang isang post naman ay nanggalling sa isang senior member, kahit papaano ay binibigyan natin ito ng value dahil iisipin natin na matagal na cia sa forum at marami na siyang alam.

Iba-iba man ang ating pananaw sa posts count or member status aminin natin na kahit papaano ay nagiging proud tayo kapag umaangat ang status natin. di  ba nga may thread na full member na ako!... senior member na ako!....Wag tayong magkaplastik! aminin sa sarili...na kahit 1% ay may pintig ng kasiyahan tayong nararamdaman  ;D kasi kung wala eh matakot ka na kasi unti-unti ng nagiging manhid ang puso mo (hala ka!)

eto ang aking maliit na pabor sa mga MODS at sa nagprogram ng site na ito...SIMPLE lang naman ito na sana ay mapagbigyan niyo...

Sana po isama niyo na ring bilangin ang posts sa welcome aboard kasi di ba kahit sa school kapag nagtanong ang teacher at sumagot ang students maganda man o panget, may meaning o wala, may sense o wala...consider as comment pa rin ito na dapat bigyan ng halaga.  ;D

mas madaling magbilang ng count kung puro Addition lang kesa addition with subtration  ;)

yun lamang po. I THANK YOU... VOW ;D

If you will notice below, this forum board is powered by SMF. Simple Machines Forum — SMF in short — is a free, professional grade software package that allows you to set up your own online community within minutes. It's free so it's considered off-the-shelf or pre programmed. There might be a way to address your requests regarding points but only the system admin could really answer that as he/she should know every little details of how the software works, its scope and limitations. :)

I think (if I am not mistaken) this is the reason why points are deducted http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2138.  It's quite a nose bleed to absorb this info hehe. Just thought it could help the mods. :)

Is post count that important?

YES, my post count is really important  -  I believe na wala naman siguro akong I popost na non-sense at hindi makakaganda for the community ..

And my status as a Sr member here is really matter, achievement for me. I gain friends here na walang natatapakan.

di ba nakakapanlumo na imbes tumaas ka eh bumababa?its not our fault na nilipat nila yung mga threads sa welcome aboard...

sabagay if we keep on talking but di naman nakikinig mga mods anung silbi di ba? ???
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: tineped on October 30, 2009, 09:37:52 am
We are used to not being "reprimanded" of our forum violations then all of a sudden MODs got our attentions. We are getting used to it now and I should say we should as MODs are very active nowadays. The forum needs to be regulated. It's for our sake as well. Otherwise, we could encounter a major glitch and not have access on SP for long. That'll be sad right? :)

To sis ilovegabe. Honestly the question "Is post count that important?" sounded sarcastic for me too. In tagalog it will translate to "Ganun ba kaimportante and bilang ng post?" The word "that" seemed to have almost equated to "duh!?". However, I didn't mind at all.:) I am just analyzing things here. We have different POVs and reaction to things. Let us just be careful on how we deliver our thoughts especially that we communicate in a written way. We have no way of putting emotions on our words other than smileys. However,it is not always necessary that we put emoticons in all our posts. An honest opinion is good but courtesy should always be there. :)

ask ko lang mods ilovegabe bakit ganyan signiture mo??di lang naman isa nakapansin na ur being sarcastic sis..marami sila..di lang nila mavoice out dahil nga mods ka..nakita ko din sa old post mo na mahilig ka din mag quote before ka naging mods..and yet sabi mo di mo sinusuway ang rules ng sp??  ???
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: tineped on October 30, 2009, 10:24:22 am
^^^ Please note that I just used your questioning as an example together with how I reacted on it so as to point out that we have different reaction and interpretation on things. :)

To all,as I have said, we communicate in a written way that is why we need to be careful. If there is no way that you can deliver your thoughts in the nicest way that you know always remember that there are things better left unsaid. :D

Post by: keih liwanag on October 30, 2009, 10:28:19 am
y'know one thing that i noticed in SP forum as time goes by.. we become so attached to it. yes surely, i myself is a self-confessed SP addict.

we have so many ways to make it better, be a friend to everyone or be a MOD so you can maintain the forum, whichever way it is, we only have one common purpose naman eh, to learn more and gain more. be it learnings or friends.

every time there'll be a not so nice comment, it gets to our nerves. every time there's a nice comment, we genuinely accept it. kase no matter how we deal with each comment, no matter approach we get to deliver a message, we consider each and everyone our friend already. that is the only reason why this is happening. we love SP so much and we love those who compose it.

my suggestion, let's try so hard to continue to be a friend for every one, and you'll see, everything will follow.. the respect, the courtesy, the friendship that you offer, will prosper and later on you'll realize, you've gained many friends already. let this be our guide to a harmonious e-friendship. ;)

Very well said Sis Keih. It just so happen that ilovegabe is the most active MOD, in my observation, thus she appears to be an "enemy". On the brighter side of it, she appears to be an effective MOD due to criticisms received. :)

Let us all be open minded to circumstances. If something got into your nerve, just ignore it. Don't let it ruin your day. There are some other things that are far more important than this. Live a positive life everyday. Smile. Breathe. Relax. :D

Post by: toughmom moderator on October 30, 2009, 02:01:57 pm
You can send a PM to the Administrator. They will reply by email if they want to invite you to be a moderator. I also gave them my history and what I want to do for the group.

Going back to the topic, the moving of the topics being discussed here is a part of undergoing modifications on this forum. There were only a few boards when this site started thus a great number of topics are concentrated (and still are) at the General Discussions board. It was only last year (if i remember it correct) that more topic boards were added and rules expanded. For a year since this forum spinned-off from the SP e-group, there were very few active moderators that reported topics takes a long time to be fixed. 

The point system came as a package when SMF software was used this is why there are no explanation or instructions from the SP Admin on this, if it has benefits or reward, moral or material and how it should be respected. We do encourage members to make all their posts relevant and helpful too all members.  Newbie or Hero member are of the same importance to us.

There was a time when we were under 50 and there are only 10-20 new members a week. I feared that this forum may not even take off. Now there's never an hour that we are out of users/guests online. The success of this forum is credited to the newbies then who are now Heroes, Seniors and some are content to remain as Newbies and Juniors. I know of a few members, even guests who rarely post but their share had made an impact.

There is more clamour from other members of different status that the point system be applicable to "quality"posts only. Again, we do not have a control over that, What we can control right now is to place topics on the appropriate boards.

More proposals and changes will be made including the Marketplace section and the whole SP site, not just this forum. To speed that up, we need more Moderators. However, you need not be a Moderator to be a great contributor. A simple PM to the Mods will do.
Title: Re: SP POSTS POINTS NASAAN NA...???
Post by: leela on October 30, 2009, 07:44:25 pm
While we understand how important points/ranks are to many members here, please keep in mind that at the end of the day, it will be the quality of your posts that will count. You can be a Hero member but SP members may not value your sharing when all you do is post one-liners or just keep posting in the for sale sections. You may also be a Newbie with very few points but if your posts are sensible, SP members will respect and value you just the same.

Sure, anyone can argue that the reason why many of us are here is because we post insightful and sensible sharing. We don't question that. Unfortunately, the software of the board is not built to judge which are quality posts and which are not. This is why we encourage everyone to be focused on the quality and not the number.

With regards to transfer of many threads from General Discussion to Welcome Aboard, this is one way of organizing the board. Since its relaunch, SP is constantly improving the site thus there is a need to organize, merge, or delete posts. All our posts will definitely be affected but again, let's not be focused on the points and rank.

Let me cite an example. Person A receives hundreds of Christmas cards while Person B only receives a dozen. If you read the Christmas cards of Person A, you'll find that the cards she has received are from merchants/store owners where she has done a lot of shopping. If you read the cards of Person B, all of them comes from friends and people whose lives she touched. Who do we think is more appreciated in this scenario?  :)

Also part of the improvement is adding more moderators to help out in the boards. I recommended a couple of SP members to the SP editorial team. No, I don't know them personally. I have never met them personally. My basis for recommending them was because 1) they are active members here, 2) they are respected by the community, 3) they have a strong desire to help the community grow, and 4) they are stickler for rules. Sure, they probably had their share of violations before but we don't require the moderators to be perfect.

With regards to the warning...Warnings are just reminders for members to follow the board rules. And please keep in mind that we issue warnings not because we just like to issue warnings. We issue warnings because there are other members who were bothered by violations.

Like ilovegabe said, moderators have day jobs and we can't be online all the time. If you see us posting warnings, it's because we are responding to the posts reported by concerned members. And these reports range from simple text-speak violations (which are still committed by a lot of members) to the more serious ones like posting hostile comments.

We are very thankful to members who take the time out to report violations, even something as text-speak. Reports like these make our lives easier and help the community a lot. We are equally thankful to members who observe the rules because they make the community a better one. They also serve as great role models for other members.

Mods are not paid to do this job but we do it out of sheer love for the community. As moderators, we need to be objective at all times. Even when some members are hostile with us, we still need to keep our cool.

To jvcav08's question na may takutan dito sa SP pag may kumalaban sa comments, we issue warnings because members reported it. There were members who were bothered with the comments. Hindi kami mag-iissue ng warning dahil trip lang namin.

Finally, moderators are your allies and not enemies. When some members here were harassed and rumors were spread about them, it was the moderators who stepped in and stopped it. Just a couple of weeks back, somebody was harassing another member, posting defamatory comments against her, it was also the mods who recommended that the harasser be banned.

At the end of the day, members and mods should work together to make the community a great one. So let's just focus on how to improve the site better.

Parting words lang. jvcav08, please refrain from posting in text-speak. ilovegabe, yup, medyo OT ka na. :) Thanks.

Title: point/post count / Member Levels
Post by: milkfish on December 01, 2009, 04:21:28 pm
Hello everyone! I'm a newbie here, have just registered today. As I was browsing the previous posts, there are discussions on post points. As I understand it, it affects status of membership here in SP. Could somebody please explain to me what it is for? What do we gain if our status becomes higher? Is it necessary to gaing more points? I don't think this is explained in the house rules. I joined for the sole purpose of sharing and exchanging information with other mothers (and fathers) like me. Thanks in advance to whoever could explain it to me.
Title: Re: What's post point for?
Post by: milkfish on December 02, 2009, 09:39:34 am
Thanks for the link, frankie. One thing is now clear, members should join and post relevant discussions not just for the sake of points, but to share knowldege and experiences above all.

lnespectato, welcome to SP and we hope you become a valuable member of the community.

don't forget to read the house rules to familiarize yourself with the board rules.

http://www.smartparenting.com.ph/parentchat/index.php?topic=115.0

ngayon pa lang, i commend you for posting using proper spelling. this is a sign of respect to other members who do not appreciate text-speak because it creates confusion. unfortunately, the rule on text-speak is commonly violated by newbies and even old members of the community.

again, welcome to SP and enjoy your stay here! :)

Post by: Mommy Jazz on September 08, 2010, 08:29:15 am
Reminder lang po. The system increases your point count for every message you post but it does not detect the quality of posts. We'd appreciate it if all members would give valuable insights in all their posts and be recognized and respected more for their contributions rather than their point count.
Also, Moderators have the discretion of deleting posts and pruning threads to make it easier for members and guests to search and back read. Old posts that are most likely to be deleted are chitchats (posts that are meant for 2 parties only and does not involve the rest of the members who joined the topic), one word comments and smileys (we have a rule about that) and old posts about comments and praises that had already been acknowledged by the fellow member.
The board occassionally goes thru a periodic manual "clean up" by the Mods to do away with topics and posts that is too outdated or has already been answered.
Apologies should your point count be affected but this is necessary to keep the board organized and to prevent the site from slowing down due to too much clutter.

Kudos to all of you who make this site enjoyable and informative!
Title: Re: Re: SP Rants and Raves
Post by: Mommy Jazz on September 10, 2010, 11:03:33 am
I completely understand your sentiment chimendoza09. That's what we always remind members, quality, not quantity. As we already know and what the Moderators has posted in few threads, "the system can not distinguish chatty from relevant posts, it just keep increasing a member's point whenever a post is made".
The Moderator's job is to be the "human" system that can control which post or topic deserves a point however, we human Mods do not have a "robotic" ability that's why RTMs help us a lot (thanks!).

Before a topic can be merged or posts deleted we check first if a topic is PERSONAL or GENERAL.

Examples of a General Topic are:
-What items are needed for a newborn?
-Progressive or Traditional School?
-Your birth experience.

These are topics that can invite diff POVs and members can share the same concern.

Examples of Personal Topic
-Please recommend venue and party planner for November party in Taguig
-Binato ako ni Husband
-Nanganak na ako

These are topics that were started merely to open up a member's personal story or need.

Only General topics can be merged and for that, chitchats are discouraged because all posts should concern all of the followers of that topic. For Personal topics, short replies are allowed because this is addressed to the thread starter. HOWEVER, Personal topics are more likely to be deleted by the Mods when the issue is long over, the question has already been answered, when it reached 30 pages and when it stops getting replies for months. Personal topics can also be merged with General topics (if the Moderator sees it fit) specially if it calls the interest of the majority but this will be pruned for all messages to apply to all viewers.
Point count will definitely be affected. Again, this is necessary for the Forum to be more searchable, easier to read and organized.

Yes, members can easily up their level by posting messages not relevant to most but posts of these kind can be deleted by the Mods.

"the system can not distinguish chatty from relevant posts, it just keep increasing a member's point whenever a post is made"----Yes, members can easily up their level by posting messages not relevant to most but posts of these kind can be deleted by the Mods.

 i really appreciate this moderator mommyjazz, in my POV, though we are allowed to posts every concern here and for every post is 1 point, members must be reminded still to make it valuable/informative/sensible enough--and for me again, member levels has equivalent value. if you are already a hero member it follows that you are already well-informed of the rules specially on chitchats and your posts are expected to be sensible too. it disappoints me knowing a hero member because of chitchats and questions here and questions there  :) >:(
Title: Re: Re: SP Rants and Raves
Post by: Mommy Jazz on September 11, 2010, 02:07:08 am
Discouraged are the following:
- Posting a message on a thread that's directed only to 1 member. This puts off other followers of the topic who are excited to get an update on the subject only to find out that the latest post doesn't concern them.
- When posts become off topic because of the chit chats.
- Posting of questions that has been asked before

Allowed are:
- Welcome, congratulatory and other short messages of goodwill to a fellow member. (this however can be deleted long after the message has been acknowledged and when the topic needs to be pruned)
- Short replies directed to the thread starter or thread starter to fellow member in personal threads.

Short messages or exchanges between (let's say) 5 members in a thread is still allowed for as long as it stays on topic, rules are followed (replies are with content) and viewers can still benefit from their exchanges.

What do we mean by "content"? It's when the message is sensible, on topic and concerns the participants and viewers of that thread.

Some members (knowingly or unknowingly) increase their points by starting his/her own personal thread and actively reply to all respondents. We can't contend with that, it's a personal story and members oftentimes become a support group. It would be up to the Moderators however, to see if the topic is indeed a personal one or a general subject that can be merged with another topic. If it's the latter, the thread will be merged and pruned.

We can easily spot members who post just to increase their count and those who positively contribute to the forum. Their post history shows their personality and if they really are concerned with the topic they started, the members they are replying to, are really "into" the subject, or just post a few words to upgrade their level.

For me, best way to identify a real "Star" member (I'm sure you'll agree with me Ms. Chi) is to check his/her post history, not the level or post count.

Post by: thansher01 on September 11, 2010, 08:34:25 am
for me, the level/post count doesn't matter. it's just a number for me. what's important is the relevance and importance of the topic a member usually shares..

kung hindi mag-increase yung post count ko, ok lang.. as long as nakakatulong ako to our fellow SP members happy na ako..

SP Forum is not a contest. we're here to learn, give and seek advice to others which can make us effective parents, kaya nga it's called Smart Parenting eh. hindi Popularity Parenting..

IMHO po ;)

Title: Re: Re: SP Rants and Raves
Post by: Mommy Jazz on September 11, 2010, 09:40:14 am
Naiintindihan ko din naman po yung kakayanan ng ibang members. Not everyone is as articulate or has a lot to say, or an expert in a parenting field, but many here has a big heart and can only share a bit but with that small support, it builds a stronger community. Those tiny things deserve a point too for as long as it doesn't defy house rules.
But if you ask me who really deserves a high recognition, I stand by what I mentioned about looking into the member's post history.
Kung meron lang award giving body ang SP, I'd base it on this and not on the status.

Will merge this post with "Member Levels"

Hi there! Mga sis and moderators po. Ask ko lang po if bakit po nababawasan number of posts namin? Napansin ko lang po. Pero may nabasa rin po akong thread before na kaya nababawasan ay dahil sa mga lumang threads na ba un? Dene-delete po ba yung mga lumang threads? Thanks po. :)

@Mommyjazz:

MOD just want to ask if copying from other sites and posting it here is SP as a reply to the threads here is not prohibited? As you said earlier, forums here in SP is for the members to share insights, share one's experiences in life or even just our own POV's but the kind of thing that is copy-paste is neither an insight nor a personal experience not even a POV.

I have noticed a certain member here in SP who is always doing that copy-paste thing.
Title: Re: point/post count / Member Levels
Post by: yhamslove® on October 13, 2011, 02:51:06 pm
^share ko lang POV ko sis ha, i think okay lang magpost dito ng galing sa ibang sites basta informative at nakakatulong. If you would read the SP Parent Chat Community Rules (http://www.smartparenting.com.ph/parentchat/index.php/topic,115.0.html), under Roman II and IV, it provides:

"II. Linking

    Linking to other websites in posts or through signatures is permitted, with the exception of the following: x x x"

"IV. Posting Content

    x x x Posting copyrighted material without attribution is prohibited. This refers to full articles, images, and video covered by traditional copyright licenses. Reposting from other sources is allowed, provided: 1) the source is given proper attribution, and is accompanied by a link for online sources; 2) only the relevant portions are quoted; and 3) the purpose of posting is to inform, solicit views, comments, and further interaction from the community."

Kailangan lang indicated yung link kung saan niya nakuha as as to avoid plagiarism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plagiarism).  ;)
Title: Re: point/post count / Member Levels
Post by: momma_33 on October 13, 2011, 03:11:09 pm
sis yhamslove®, for me personally kase ang nangyayari pgnakita ko na "username" for that certain member parang ayaw ko na basahin kase alam ko copy-paste na naman. she usually do it.

No I dont see the link kung saan niya kinuha.

Bur thanks sis for sharing. senxa na pag nakikita ko na kase name niya ayaw ko na talaga buksan ang post/thread. I like SP because i want to read posts from mommies here hindi yong copy-paste lang.
Title: Re: point/post count / Member Levels
Post by: yhamslove® on October 13, 2011, 09:12:26 pm
Sabi din sa Rules natin:

"IV. Posting Content

Please post threads and replies with content. Replies consisting of only smilies and simple “yes” and “no” answers are discouraged; please expound on your thoughts and explain your views." (emphasis supplied)


Mas maganda talaga magbasa ng totoong naexperience ng ibang tao kase mas realistic. Marami rin akong nababasang posts dito na galing sa ibang sites, copied verbatim, minsan nga naiisip ko, nabasa ko na ito sa ganito/ganyang site ah.

Pero siguro para sa kanya malaki ang impact nung article na yun kaya gusto niya i-share. Basta dapat lang talaga i-incorporate niya sa post niya yung link kung saan niya yun nakuha.

Mas gugustuhin ko nalang yung ganong post.. kesa sa mga one-liner lang tapos as in totally walang kwenta... alam mo yun, ek-ek lang talaga!  ;D

Happy posting sis momma_33!
Title: Re: point/post count / Member Levels
Post by: momma_33 on October 14, 2011, 08:14:39 am
@ yhamslove®: copy-paste from other sites is ok as long as hindi naman palagi, i mean we still share our own thoughts and insights, but there is this particular member here who do it always, almost all of her posts here. Im sorry but for me it defeats the purpose of SP. But shes entitled to her own views and opinions. But sana huwag naman niya gagawin lage as in always.
Title: Re: point/post count / Member Levels
Post by: yhamslove® on October 14, 2011, 09:23:45 am
^yung lang, everybody is not a willing audience..

Pero may way naman para hindi mo na makita lahat ng mga ipopost niya. (kung sino man yun)  :-\

1) Go to "Profile" and scroll down to "Forum Profile".

2) Point to "Modify Profile", and select "Buddies/Ignore List", then select "Edit Ignore List"

3) If you don't have any users listed in your "Ignore List", then add/type the username of the member you wish to ignore.

4) Then go back to "Modify Profile" then scroll down to "Look and Layout".

5) Tick or check the "Hide messages posted by members on my ignore list".

6) Finally, click "Change Profile".

Check mo kung gagana.  ;)
