This is a new feature showing the full history of past edits to this Blog Post. All members will now be able to Edit and refine their past and future Blog Posts with NO time limit.
Blog Rating/Voting: To encourage higher quality in blog postings, the blog rating system has now been enhanced. As before, you can vote on any blog post by clicking on the thumbsup/thumbsdown buttons on the right side of each blog post/reply.
Guest users are allowed to vote - 1 vote will be accepted from a single IP address. Members/Admins are allowed one vote per person for each blog post/reply.
The following points system is assigned to votes.
1. Guest users: 1 point per vote - either +1 or -1 depending on the vote.
2. Members: 2 points per vote - can go either +2 or -2 depending on the vote.
...
Read more...
3. Admins: 5 points per vote - can go either -5 or +5 for each vote.
When a Blog Post/Reply gets lower than -10, it is automatically hidden from view. The header will still be visible - so you will know who posted it and when. But, to view the contents, readers will have to explicitly click on a link.
When a Blog Post/Reply gets more than 20 points, a gold star appears to the right.
In the future, this overall rating score vis a vis points will be reflected in the User Profile (just like the Prediction Accuracy metric).
The Delete button will still be available to Admins to remove offensive posts - but these are the extreme cases. The negative rating/hide scheme will take care of the vast majority of cases where the post was disapproved by many, but still did not meet the criterion for a Delete.
The new democratic system is hoped to spur a higher quality of blog posts. This is still a somewhat experimental feature, and further modifications will be made based on feedback.
All Admins & Members, who have had concerns regarding the quality of the forum, are encouraged to vote actively, and thereby control the overall tone and discourse.

with some modification we can make it as "best REPLY" by the person who started this post and there should not be any point for that . This will make him and other person to post more and more so that it will discussed more here then any other forum. Again giving you trouble -UG

    Today (05:51AM)


    Regarding the CR/NCR rivalry that is dominating the blogs these days in IRI, we are all open to listen to constructive SOLUTIONS as to what can be done. Should we create a separate Android app that will record authentic train speeds that no one can dispute? . Members are invited to put...

    The new IRI logo can now be seen. Actually, we are reluctant to make changes to the logo (for the sake of recognizability and consistency), but some very slight modification was done this time. Here is the post-facto rationalization of the logo: . 1. The Chakra is the Wheel symbolizing Transportation/Travel which...

    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.
