I created a test account and found I can't comment or upvote/downvote. I expect this is because I don't have enough reputation points yet. Something clarifying this would be helpful, like a title attribute for the upvote/downvote images.

oh, just realized that an alt attribute currently exists for this. Should be changed to title.

Bug indeed, you need 10 points to go to the next role:


mysql> select * from auth_roles;
+----+-------------+----------------+-------------------+
| id | role_name | role_min_score | color_designation |
+----+-------------+----------------+-------------------+
| 1 | Member | 0 | FFFFFF |
| 2 | Contributor | 11 | B6D7A8 |
| 3 | Reviewer | 51 | FFE599 |
| 4 | TeamLead | 101 | 9FC5E8 |
| 5 | Manager | 501 | C27BA0 |
| 6 | SysAdmin | 1001 | BF9000 |

I just made you a SysAdmin, however, have fun breaking it :)

neat! Do users get bonus points for filling out their profile - avatar, etc?

Nope :(

is this something that would be desirable?

I am also implementing Janrain, by using their API I will be able to plug in their names and possibly their email information, FYI

to encourage community it might be nice. Definitely not a priority feature.

Have you considered implementing Up/Down vote with AJAX instead of refreshing?
