I haven't seen a bad idea that I didn't like.

I’d prefer a mod/admin response since nobody I’ve spoken too seems to know.

How the hell IS Buildr score determined?

I’ve had 20 submissions downvoted to -5 (back when I was trying for Enemies peen), and say one makes it into the forum. I still get +2 Buildr score.

My very first week I sent in my 7 submissions and nothing got in. I got +1 score.

I’ve spoken to people who’ve said they’ve submitted material and gotten nothing accepted, but still got +2. And I still have no clue how you get negative score.

To the best of my knowledge, if your score is 0, and everything you submit gets -5’d, you get -1. (EDIT: dobnits has informed me that it is possible to lose points even if you have more than 0.) If you submit and nothing gets in, you get +1. If you submit and get anything at all in, you get +2.

MY MEMORY IS THAT OF A SMALL GRAPE

it takes more than five minutes for CZ to see a thread :/

i’d guess it’s a function of all the factors in fb. i didn’t get anything on the forum last week but my score went up one.

Right from the moment when I saw Saw, I laughed.

Happened to me.

Also the first week I was here I didn’t really understand builder and I got -1. That was when they made wahoo answers. I thought ok, this is a parody of yahoo, there’s all kinds of people on yahoo, so I’ll just make up all kinds of generic usernames… I remember one of them was about poop.

Edit: Another thing, after I got the -1 my score didn’t go up for at least a month. During that time I was getting 1-2 things on average submitted to every forum.

I know Tubs, it just fell off the Active Topics so I bumped it.

That sucks Celery, so is there like a big hurdle you have to get across to start getting positive score again or something?

What it sounds like. Hmm.

Sometimes when I go with more experimental submissions i submit with an alt. Using this method I have gone up to a score of 1, but have since gone back to zero, after one week where I submitted one thing and it got -5’d. Therefore, you can still lose points after gaining them.
