Reputation matters! It's how we build a robust and high quality community. That's why our reputation score uses more than 40 parameters. In short, the goal is to measure those who contribute positively to the greater community.
We keep our algorithm proprietary – it's what makes Unience unique, after all – but let us share some key factors you should know.
As a general rule, you might say that reputation measures the contribution to the community. As a result, if you only lurk and don't comment, you will not rise in the ranks, even if you access Unience every day. On the other hand, if a person who has just signed up in Unience is very active, participates in existing conversations and does so consistently, and his or her comments and contributions are well received by others, then such person's efforts will soon be rewarded. However, they must remain active to keep a high rank, or the effect of time will cause them to slide down gradually.
We have at all times tried to prevent some of the harmful effects of these kinds of classifications, such as "the rich always getting richer" – for example, the top ranks being inaccessible for everyone else. This would be very discouraging for new entrants. We've also attempted to minimize the risk that a person could influence his/her own reputation excessively.
Overall, we use more than 40 parameters in Unience's reputation ranking to ensure that we reflect our community and those who contribute the most to it. On occasion, we might adjust a specific parameter if, for example, we feel it gives too much weight given our knowledge about the community and algorithms. However, making changes in our algorithm may lead to a sudden change in one's ranking that's difficult to explain, so we try to avoid this. Our mission is simply to improve our community – and sometimes it requires making modifications.
