The post Rankings
« on: May 17, 2006, 03:46:57 PM »

Okay I've just reached 250 posts and now I noticed that I have 3 stars instead of the former 2.  I was wondering how the ranking system works and what's the max level??

Also why stars?  Why not super mario bros mushrooms, or Pac-man or something video game related!

just a suggestion guys

I believe someone who just signs up has one star, 50 posts = 2 stars, 250 = 3 stars, 500 = 4 stars, 1,000 posts = 5 stars.

Honestly, we're not crazy about post counts and having them displayed under everyone's username is something we've talked about eliminating in future upgrades to the site.  It's the quality of posts that we're interested in regardless of whether a user has 20 posts under their belt or 1,000.  I personally wouldn't want anyone making posts just for the sake of racing to a specified number.

Quality over quantity.

I think there might be copyright issues with that.

I guess I better take my leave then.   :P  Is the ranking system something you guys came up with or was a pre-set template type of deal?  It doesn't really bother me if someone sees how much I post.  Most forums have them but then again most forums aren't fun like Tehbias.  I like how you guys let everyone speak their mind (within reason of course).  Keep up the great work.  ;D
