It is understandable to think that an active and productive member of a forum will have some kind of privileges versus a new member. They have been loyal and contributed to the forum and you do not want to loose their membership over an occasional rule violation. However, If a new member is accused of violating a rule and points out that someone else broke it and the staff didn't say anything to that particular member, it could reflect badly on the administration. So what do you do?
I personally have been fortunate, I haven't really had a problem with this on my forum. That being said, I am not ignorant to the fact that it does evolve on other communities. So, for those of you who have dealt with or even currently dealing with this issue let us know your thoughts and experiences.
The first forum I ever joined, The admin favorited most of the other members. Me, being new to roleplaying, made a lot of mistakes, so the eventuly they just all ganged up on me.
Therefore, I think that favoriting members is not an option in rewarding posts.
I think that the character-post ratio is a good reward. When a member gets a certin amount of post, they get to be able to make more characters to roleplay.
Then agian, that only works in roleplay.
The idea of geting "money" per post work good in human roleplays. The more you post, the more money you get, the more things you can buy.
But you all know that cats, horses, ect. can use money, so the sulotion dies there.
Maybe getting karma when you go up a post rank would help.
Or getting more privledes.
Or you could make a board for only the members with the highest post rank.
But those few above, I have not seen or tryed. Just the first two.
That's my opinion.
