- OT: How to calculate reputation scores?

Many web sites have an article/message/user reputation based on the up or
down votes the article/message/user receives. How is a reputation score
calculated given only up and down votes? (The user is not presented with
a 1 to 5 scale for scoring something.)
Re: OT: How to calculate reputation scores?
Generally it is just a net score. The score is just incremented and
as each positive/negative vote is submitted. Some sites such as
www.perlmonks.org (let's try to get this back On Topic! :) ) use a
more elaborate algorithm though.
how perlmonks "Experience Points" are calculated.
So, there really is no one way and you may want to build something sort
of fun like perlmonks XP to help build a certain "community".
