Can you set NewPoints to deduct points for certain actions? - tronicuk - 02-28-2014

Hello,

I would like to use NewPoints to award users for carrying out various actions in myBB.

I have a Q & A forum in development and what id like to be able to do is choose which actions earn users points and which actions deduct them.

For example:

User is awarded 200 points at registration.

User Asks a question (new thread) - this costs user 5 points

User posts reply (answer) this awards user 10 points.

User marks post as best answer - user is awarded 10 points

This way users are incentivised to answer questions because it earns them points and they spend their points to ask questions.

Is this possible with NewPoints and can it be customised to do that?

Thanks

Not this: "User marks post as best answer - user is awarded 10 points"

All the others are possible but note that those settings are global, for every forum. You can customize the income rate for each forum though (the multiplier of those settings).

Ok thankyou, thats fine we want the same point structure across all the forums on the site.

So to clarify:

We can set it to deduct points when a user posts a new thread?

And award points when a user posts a reply?

Many thanks

Yes, you can do that.
