As you've probably noticed we launched a new bot trpbot which will be doing some new things around town, thought I'd let you all know about it.
We wanted to be able to boost high quality content and give a certain visual marker of reputation to members that provide high quality contributions.
When a post is high quality or high value, a point can be awarded (with at least a short paragraph about why it was high quality) by including a mars symbol ♂ (type ♂ or type ALT + 11) anywhere in your reply. The bot will detect this and award a point to the author of the comment you're replying to.
Points can only be awarded by Endorsed contributors at the moment, but as users gain points, if any user gets 5+ points, he can also award deltas.
If there are any questions, let me know. We're still somewhat testing.
New symbol: ♂ !
