Is it possible to edit user reputation?

We want to use reputation based permissions, but also have a requirement to give some users immediate access to perform moderation level tasks on Confluence Questions.

 

I know that there is not currently a way of setting this via user permissions, but is there any way of immediately giving a user a high reputation so that they can carry out question moderation tasks?

To answer your question, yes you can. You modify the entries within the database to adjust points. However, this defeats the purpose of the points. Users can however ask and answer their own questions to gain points as needed.

Please review here:

Allow experts to curate questions and answers  

As a Q&A community grows, administrators may want to delegate content curation activities to other users. You can choose to grant permissions to perform actions such as editing question topics or deleting comments, based on a the number of points a user has earned.

To turn on reputation based permissions:

  1. Go to  > General Configuration > Confluence Questions Customisation.
  2. Select Reputation Based Permissions
  3. Choose Save.

The points required for each action are:

  • Vote down an answer - 15 points
  • Change question topic - 100 points
  • Delete a comment - 500 points
  • Edit a topic - 500 points
  • Edit another user's question or answer - 500 points
  • Accept an answer on another user's question - 1500 points
  • Convert an answer to comment or a comment to answer - 1500 points

do you have more details - what tables/fields are to be updated? we'd need to bump the point for a selected few people so they can moderate questions themselves
