Can we improve cubepoints plugin by awarding points when a post is over a 'certain' amount of words.  We do not want to award points to users who reply casually and earn points with such....  'thank you', 'awesome!' or smiley replies.

Let's start with a bit of background. We did not write the SP CubePoints Integration plugin. It was originally written by a user who then let us take it over so all we did was polish it up to use the correct plugin format.

At the time of release we really had no idea how anyone might use it and what sort of things they would want so it came with the same basic set of options and settings that the original author put in place. The only thing we added was support for polls.

This means that what you see - at the moment - is what you get. And I understand that this is pretty basic. What we hoped for is this sort of feedback that would suggest the way people wanted to use it so that we can expand it to meet those needs.

This suggestion is a good example of that and I can understand why you would want it - it makes sense. Just not something the original author or us had considered. And the best I can offer - at the moment - is to add this to the open ticket as something we can and will add on a future update. Just can not give you a timeframe for that at this time.

And in line with the above - any other useful suggestions you may have would be welcome. We don't promise to add everything that is suggested but everything will be considered.

On the other issue of the rating, I suspect that your own suspicions are correct and that this is not perfectly handled. gain - I think this might have been missed by the author and subsequently by us. So I will add that in to the list as well.

Afraid not. It is pretty low priority at the moment I am afraid. Unless anyone would like to volunteer to take it on?
