Title (EN) COST-BASED COMMUNITY FEEDBACK
(FR) RETROACTION DE COMMUNAUTE BASEE SUR LE COUT
Abstract:
(EN) Feedback (106) is used as a value metric for members of and content in an online community. Members have bank units (104) to use in the community to perform activities and to provide feedback (102) about other members and the content they produce. Certain activities in the community have associated costs, which a user must be able to afford in order to participate. Because bank units (104) are limited in supply, they acquire value within the community. Members therefore have an incentive both to spend their bank units (104) judiciously and to act in such a way as to earn more units for themselves.
(FR) L'invention concerne une rétroaction (106) utilisée en tant que valeur métrique pour des membres d'une communauté en ligne et pour du contenu de cette communauté en ligne. Les membres possèdent des unités bancaires (104) à utiliser dans la communauté afin de mettre en oeuvre des activités et fournir une rétroaction (102) sur d'autres membres et le contenu qu'ils produisent. Certaines activités dans la communauté ont des coûts associés, un utilisateur devant en avoir les moyens afin de participer. Etant donné que les unités bancaires (104) sont limitées en approvisionnement, elles acquièrent une valeur dans la communauté. C'est pourquoi les membres sont à la fois encouragés à dépenser leurs unités bancaires (104) de façon judicieuse et à agir de manière à économiser davantage d'unités pour eux-mêmes.
