Is there any forecast for Discourse to have reputation system?

This is a very important function for question-and-answer systems and forums on various subjects.

Hi Jonatan442 welcome to the forum

Discourse has Badges that are granted for various accomplishments and milestones. Does what you’re reffering to differ from them in some significant way?


Sounds more like the ‘reputation #’ you get on Stackexchange powered instances …

Yes, it’s quite different.
I refer to just that:

or: Points & Levels | Yahoo Answers

Users earn points by answering, asking, voting, receiving votes, having a answer chosen as the best and other achievements.


Discourse is primarily forum software and I believe the core direction has not been to support rich Q&A style interaction.

However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be addressed in a plugin.

I believe this plugin is the state of the art for Q&A on Discourse.

To my knowledge it doesn’t add public reputation tracking (yet … ). You might want to ask the author about his plans:

The forecast is: Unlikely.

Discussion can be continued here if you feel like you have anything new of value to add:
