Thanks to the time devoted by Infrared (Morris the Mata Nui Cow on TNW), he made us a "merit system". It's basically the same thing as proto on the wonderful world of BZPower, but... not Bionicle. So I really don't have to explain this here, but it seems more correct to do so.
- You can gain merit points in increments of 1 for doing good, respectful, or helpful things on The Ninjago Wiki.
- You can just as easily lose a merit point in increments of 1 for doing bad, disrespectful, or unhelpful things on The Ninjago Wiki.
- Merit levels range from -3 points to +3 points.
- All members default at having 0 points.
- Members on the staff team default to having +3 merit points.
- Members on the news team get +1 points for helping the news branch of the site.
- When a user gets -3 points, they will get a ban with an expiring time determined by how they lost all of their merit points.
Here is what merit points look on your profile:
