User points

  • Hi all,

    Has anyone created, thought of creating, or think it is a good idea to have a “User points” system. Like a competition tool, so users can be given points for doing certain site actions like posting, commenting, inviting new members, etc.

    This sort of “tool” would be real useful in making a site grow quicker, if there is a money or prize offered for the user with the most points for a given period.

    Thoughts??

    +1

    My 2 cents:

  • Awards/points assigned to each action should be customizable
  • “Degrees” or “qualifications” too

DJPaul,

The plugin sounds great!

Is there a demo or screenshots that we can access anywhere?

Also, is it compatible with BP1.0.2?

I’ll get some screenshots up this evening. And I can’t think of any reason why it wouldn’t be compatible with BP 1.0.2.

Great!

I have several ideas for achievements already!.

Can you provide me with an example of how I would add an achievement for posting/commenting in a particular blog(s)?

I have a few core blogs and I want this to be an added incentive for members to guest post and comment on these particular blogs.

Thanks for releasing this useful plugin.

Sure, again when I get in from work. :)

Gr8 Paul !

Would U like me to translate it to Spanish ?

I’m working on replies here. Thank you very much for the positive response so far :)

Screenshots: I haven’t got any, but look at my achievements profile on my BuddyPress site at http://dangerous-minds.org/members/djpaul/achievements/.

Kunal17: here’s your example plugin. Put it in your /mu-plugins/ panel and log in as the admin and visit the /wp-admin/ pages (you don’t have to do anything else). In theory you can load this code anywhere you want, it’s just in /mu-plugins/ to make it easier to demo.

Finally (before bed), with regards to translations: I could upload the .pot file, or you could generate one yourselves, but I would recommend waiting for the next release.

I may change the way translation and achievement text customisation are / will be handled, so you may end up wasting your time if you rush to do it at the moment.

This of course begs the question as to when the next version will be – probably end of the Sunday 16th – will be working hard in my spare time to try to achieve this.

Perfect! I will wait for your next release and want to contribute by translating it to Turkish.

Is it possible to hook an achievement into a specific members blog? I would like to award points for members based on their interaction with a featured members blog (the editor and main writer of the site). Each time they comment on an article he writes in his blog they would get a point for it. (standalone for generic blogs reward).

Thanks, also sent you a PM DJPaul :D

Thanks DJPaul! Ill try this out later today and let you know.

@blackarbor, try the code in the link pasted earlier by DJPaul. They should meet your requirements if I understand them correctly.

Kunal17′s correct. I’m not going to program everyone their custom achievements, but since Kunal was the first to ask… ;)

DJPaul, I tried out the code you posted in the link above on my dev setup.

I just renamed the file to example_achievements.php (from phps), and uploaded to muplugins to see what it does. When I try to log into wp-admin, it shows me all the code from the file I just uploaded as well as the following error:

Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/kunal17/public_html/jainkunal/wordpressmu/wp-content/mu-plugins/example_achievements.php:1) in /home/kunal17/public_html/jainkunal/wordpressmu/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-xprofile/bp-xprofile-signup.php on line 5

I am running WPMU2.8.2, BP1.0.3

Looks like you have White space (blank lines) in that file outside of the php tags
