Understanding PEx Features

Reactions are a 1-click response to discussions and comments. Using Reactions enables community members to indicate an emotional (“Awesome”, “LOL”) or empirical (“Agree”, “Vote Down”) response without typing a comment. This introduces feedback when members don’t have anything to add to a discussion via a comment.

Adding reaction to a post

A rank can be assigned to a user to grant or remove certain privileges on the forum.A user can only have one rank at a time.We have 5 automated ranks and a user can achieve a certain rank by earning points. One can earn points by completing certain forum activities such as posting, clicking on reactions, joining discussions.  The higher the accumulated points a user has, the higher the rank a user can achieve.Ranks can be assigned automatically or manually.

After each post, a row of reactions will appear. Members can click one (and only one) Reaction to each post. This will add or subtract points to the post and the user as defined by that Reaction’s settings. The post will show a running tally of how many of each Reaction it has received. Clicking a different reaction will switch how you reacted. Clicking the same reaction a second time will revoke it.

PEx badges can be earned via the points you received from the community, by participating in certain discussions or by reaching a certain level in our ranks. Badges can be given automatically or manually.

Unfortunately, all of the old PEx badges will not be part of your profile anymore. A new set of badges will be released.

Notifications for certain forum events can be delivered in-app (via Growl-style popups) and/or via email. New users will be opted in to a list of notifications that can be configured by the administrator. Users may edit these preferences in their profile at any time.

Please check our user agreement for banning and suspension grounds.

We don't normally unban a user. However, in some cases, users are just suspended in participating in our site due to certain violations identified by the admins,mods or fellow users.

The duration of the suspension would depend on the degree of violation.

Being a PEx Moderator

PEx moderators are usually selected by the admins from the community. In certain cases, members can also nominate fellow PExers. Volunteers can also send us a message via TeamPEx account.

Mods are the enforcers and drivers of the community. They are also usually the subject experts of a given category. They can edit and delete content, give violations and report any unwanted cases to the PEx admin.

If you have any other questions, please get in touch with us via our contact us page.
