After hearing feedback and analyzing for ourselves, we’ve decided to update our point system for Zhopped. We believe this change in scoring will allow for more people to engage with the site. It will also create more value for voting of edits, which will result in an overall boost in quality of edits.
Note: No points have been taken away from anyone. We simply scaled down the value of edits from 51 to 5. All the upvotes (1 point each) you had attached to the your edits remains untouched.
Downvotes now affects overall user score whereas in the previous point system, downvotes had no effect. The leaderboards now reflect this new scaling down of points as well as the upvotes/downvotes accumulated in the past. However, no one will ever lose more than they’ve earned. Example: Bob has an overall score of 20 points. After Bob makes an edit and receives 5 points, his overall score totals 25 points. Later, eight people did not like his edit and downvotes him. The thread will show -3 points for his post. Bob’s overall user score even after the downvotes, still totals 20 points.
Changes made 8/29/13:
- Points for edits scaled down from 51 points to 5 points.
- Leaderboard reflects newly scaled point system.
- Your overall user score as well as leaderboard now incorporates downvotes.
As you may have noticed, periodically we’ve been making minor modifications to our site. Today we’re introducing one of our bigger updates with the addition of categories. This will allow you to sort through the different types of photo editing as simpler complications for easier viewing. We’ve been receiving many requests and seeing some amazing edits from very talented individuals. Hope everyone continues to share this site with everyone. Remember to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates. More, great features are coming.
As you may have noticed Zhopped.com was down the past few days. We are now restored and have returned to normal. Our server’s hosting company was hacked which was something beyond our control. We lost about 5 weeks of worth of data through a hacking exploit that compromised the server host, which also corrupted some of our backup data. We were able to restore as much as we can. Sadly some users may need to recreate their usernames. If you are unable to log in, we lost your account registration as result of the data loss. If you had an old image request that does not appear on the gallery of requests and you need the edit again, feel free post it again and someone will re-edit for you. Some of the recovered edits can be found after the jump. Sorry for any inconvenience. Please continue to support our site by simply sharing the site with your friends and liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter. We will strive to make improvements and add features as the site grows. Thanks.
