Could you tell us where you put this code. I’d love to add this function.
It’s already uploaded but not showing. Still should be able to upload if it is offered.
Hi Paul. Glad you made it back safely.
I have been using “awards” in my community for the past year or so and have come to a wall. Members have accumulates points but have nowhere to spend them. What do you think they should do with the points? Is the purpose of getting points for bragging rights? The leader board is nice but maybe we should have badges on profiles or featured member privileges. There really does need to be a reward for all the hard work other than “monetary” gain.
As for XML-RPC in Second Life, here is a link to a wiki article http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Category:LSL_XML-RPC . Basically, XML-RPC has been deprecated because of single server bottlenecking due to a request limit of one.
HTTP server is currently the way to go http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_HTTP_server for bi-directional script communication.
If you would like to meet me in Second Life I can show you some scripted object examples. I’m not a programmer but have a pretty extensive background in web development and design. Here is a video of a murder mystery game that utilizes points and prizes. This particular is not SLOODLE enabled. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1EZABkRPWk
Yep. I can concur. Not working. I unlocked 5 blog posts but other people can’t on their blogs. I have to give it to them manually for now.
This is a fantastic plugin. I am really looking forward to its expansion, especially in the field of education. I use similar systems in the virtual world of Second Life through a module for Moodle called SLOODLE. This module connects student activity in the virtual world, such as quizzes and object interaction, with their Moodle course. One function is an awards system inwhich students receive points for completing certain tasks or answering questions correctly. Development has slowed down to the point that I am looking elsewhere for options.
Here is my thought, if we could have a scoreboard that ranks members based on criteria such as posts (min word count or rating), activity (based on type), and comments (word count or even…hehe…based on good spelling), then members could get a real sense of their accomplishment.
This is where it gets really fun. IF, and I say this with great anticipation, member activity in a virtual world could be somehow appended to the website points then we could have a social serious gaming network! In education this would really make learning fun. You can see more of what I am talking about by going to my YouTube channel slmerryman. Look for the SLOODLE Awards System. You can learn more about SLOODLE at http://sloodle.org
Oh…and if what I am saying is waaaayyy too much, which it surely is , could we get a more advanced points total function? I’d like to eventually allow my members to spend their points points on gifts too.
Thank you so much for your dedication to the plugin. I think you are DEFINITELY on to something.
