The Opinions Credit = Opinions Given - Opinions Received. Negative means that you have received more opinions than you have given.
What this means?
When we all post blogs we want to receive replies, opinions, etc. This is the "reward" or acknowledgement of our participation. However, sometimes, we ourselves don't care much to provide opinions to other people's posts. A positive opinions credit means that you are fulfilling your social obligations by giving opinions to other people's posts. Others will see this and may be more willing to reciprocate. To turn your opinions

credit positive, just provide some opinion to other people's posts. For example, many people provide very useful answers but they don't receive any Thanks or may receive just 1 or 2 opinions. So, just add a "Thanks" to such a post to show your appreciation.
Very soon the "Opinions Credit" will also start appearing next to a person's name in the blog so that others may readily see how willing the person is to provide opinions himself.
Thanks.

Blog Rating/Voting: To encourage higher quality in blog postings, the blog rating system has now been enhanced. As before, you can vote on any blog post by clicking on the thumbsup/thumbsdown buttons on the right side of each blog post/reply.
Guest users are allowed to vote - 1 vote will be accepted from a single IP address. Members/Admins are allowed one vote per person for each blog post/reply.
The following points system is assigned to votes.
1.

Guest users: 1 point per vote - either +1 or -1 depending on the vote.
2. Members: 2 points per vote - can go either +2 or -2 depending on the vote.
3. Admins: 5 points per vote - can go either -5 or +5 for each vote.
When a Blog Post/Reply gets lower than -10, it is automatically hidden from view. The header will still be visible - so you will know who posted it and when. But, to view the contents, readers will have to explicitly click on a link.
When a Blog Post/Reply gets more than 20 points, a gold star appears to the right.
In the future, this overall rating score vis a vis points will be reflected in the User Profile (just like the Prediction Accuracy metric).
The Delete button will still be available to Admins to remove offensive posts - but these are the extreme cases. The negative rating/hide scheme will take care of the vast majority of cases where the post was disapproved by many, but still did not meet the criterion for a Delete.
The new democratic system is hoped to spur a higher quality of blog posts. This is still a somewhat experimental feature, and further modifications will be made based on feedback.
All Admins & Members, who have had concerns regarding the quality of the forum, are encouraged to vote actively, and thereby control the overall tone and discourse.
