    Star Rep Point Chooser Gold by BOP5 (Choose how much rep to give when leaving rep.) VB 4.x


    Version 1.2.1

    This mod allows users to choose how many reputation points to give when leaving reputation.

    There was a mod like this for VB 3.x but it was never updated to 4.x. It also had no options at all.

    I only developed a VB4 version of this mod, from scratch, because the existing 3.x mod still works fine on VB 3.8.

    The Gold version of this mod has several useful features the free version (and the old version) does not:
    • Enable Mod Yes/No
    • Positive Rep Multiplication - A number by which you can multiply the max rep a user is allowed to give. When combined with the usergroup restriction this is a great way of letting premium/VIP usergroups have more rep power then they would otherwise have.
    • Negative Rep Multiplication - Like with positive rep, you can set a separate value for negative rep max value.
    • Enable in All Usergroups - Enable in All Usergroups or Not
    • Selected Usergroups - If enable in all usergroups is off, you can choose specific primary or secondary groups to enable the mod for. Any groups not enabled will see the normal reputation box.

    Features in Free and Gold Version:
    • A single select field with all possible positive and negative rep values.
    • If negative reputation is enabled a note will automatically be displayed explaining the difference. (Editable phrase)
    • If a user chooses a positive or negative value the appropriate "Approve" or "Disapprove" radio button will automatically be checked.
    • Check to make sure user can't use "hacking" tools to specify more rep than allowed.
    • Tested on latest Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and IE9.

    Live Demo:

    ========== PURPOSE / ABOUT ==========
    The purpose of this mod was to allow users to choose how much rep they give when they leave reputation. There was a popular mod for VB 3.x that was never updated to VB4 and was not re-usable code- therefore this is a fresh new mod coded from scratch to serve the same basic purpose.
    The FREE version works more or less the same as the old 3.8 version although there are some interface differences. It should be easy for people familiar with the old mod to transition to.
    The GOLD version offers several options that can make this mod even more powerful.
    -Set a "Positive rep multiplier" - A value by which you can increase the max positive rep a user can give by multiplying it by the value specified. 
    -Set a "Negative rep multiplier" - Same as above but for negative values. By default vBulletin allowed only half as much negative rep to be left as positive rep. With this setting you are no longer bound by that limitation, you can set any multiple (or fraction).
    -Usergroups - You can set the mod active to all or only specific usergroups. Combined with the above this will allow you to set special usergroups that will be able to effectively give more rep than other groups.
    Other features in both versions are a note displayed explaining the difference between positive and negative rep (only if you have negative rep enabled.) Also the appropriate "Approve" or "Disapprove" radio button will be auto chosen based on if the user chooses a positive or negative rep value.  There is also a check to make sure a user can’t use hacking tools to edit form data and leave more reputation then allowed.
    Of course all text shown to the user is in phrases for easy translation.
    =========== COMPATIBILITY ===========
    Tested and working on VB 4.0.8 and 4.1.12. I expect it will work on all 4.0.8 and above. It has not been tested with any VB below 4.0.8- Try the FREE version before buying the GOLD version if you are using a version below 4.0.8.

    This product has been tested and is working in VB 4.2.0 Alpha.

    At some point I hope to add an option to show the actual amount of rep points given in the new rep display in the user cp.

    Updated to Version 1.2.1 - Fixed a bug that causes rounding errors on fractional rep multipliers.
