As Polarkernel pointed out here, there are some issues concerning the correct installation of the votes for from TP.SE imported posts (and any posts imported from an SE data dump ..?) .
This has among other things the effect that it is not straight forward to recalculate them after for example a decision to change the rep a user earns for an up vote on his question from 5 to 10 (as it was when I joined Physics.SE …). So these rep settings for different events as up/down votes, accepts, etc should be settled before importing the TP questions. As some people said, things that worked on Physics SE should not be changed, so I suggest to apply mostly the same settings. The points for different events can be customized by going to the Admin Dashboard and chose the menu Points. I will now list the available options, together with the SE settings:
- Posting a question: 0 points
- Selecting an answer on your question: 2 points
- Per up vote on your question: 5 points
- Per down vote on your questions: -2 points
- Limit from up votes on each question: ? not available on SE
- Limit from down votes on each question: ? not available on SE
- Posting an answer: 0 points
- Having your answer selected as the best: 15 points
- Per up vote on your answer: 10 points
- Per down vote on your answer: -2 points
- Limit from up votes on each answer: ? not available on SE
- Limit from down votes on each answer: ? not available on SE
- Voting up a question: 0 points
- Voting down a question: 0 points
- Voting up an answer: 0 points
- Voting down an answer: -1 points
- Multiply all points by: 1x
- Add for all users: 1 point
BTW isn’t it some kind of fun that we can now choose these setting on our own … 😉 ?
Concerning the limits from up/down votes of question and answers, I would personally set them to a large value such that these cutoffs have no impact and our site is renormalizable … ;-P.
General Remark: I think it would be a good idea to write the settings we agree on in these Admin Dashboard discussions down in the respective posts, such that we have them ready when we want to go online. This holds for Dimension10’s post about the General Settings too.
