Member rank idea

Recommended Posts

Hey, I've been browsing around on some other forums and have found that some have a ranking system based on the number of posts. I know this site has junior member and member, but wouldn't it be cool if we had a more dedicated ranking system on top of that. Perhaps something like:

 

>100 posts: junior member

100-499 psots: member

500-999 posts: R1

1000-1499 posts: R4

etc...

 

or perhaps you could do it with car numbers! Just an idea. What do you all think about it?

That would be cool.

 

Question is if Harry can set something like that up with the forum he running on. I think he should be able to with what he running.

Currently the forum is not using user ranks. The forum is using user titles instead. Below is the user titles and when a user receives them. The usertitle of 'Member' used to be at 25 and has been raised to 100. Of course the higher titles numbers are meant for members to never reach them. Who knows, maybe someday someone will.

 

New Member 0

Junior Member 25

Member 100

Senior Member 2000

Veteran Member 8000

Esteemed Member 10000

Supreme Member 15000

 

I've considered using ranks when I started the forum with train models, actual MTA work titles, or silly names like in other boards but I thought it would interfere with the actual work titles (Bus Operator, Train Operator, Train Conductor, Locomotive Engineer) of real transit employees that I would like to assign. I finally decided that the 'Member' word with hierarchies just works better in this situation.

Exactly, I was at another site and for a second I thought they big shots in that site.

Ah, I see. I guess some of us will eventually get up there, might take a while though.

 

At a bodybuilding forum I frequent I have over 27,221.

I had just made "Member" and now I'm a "Junior Member" again. That makes me feel good at my age! B)

The most I've ever had on any board was somewhere around 22,400. I was a member of that board (a music forum) from September 2005 to September 2007 (I reached it in 2 years, exactly). I have since deleted my account there, though.

 

I do belong to another music board, which I've been at since March 2006, and I currently have 15,569 posts there.

 

Wow! That's a lot of posts bro. The most I ever racked up on any board was about 1,000 more or less. This is the first board that I go over 1,500 post threshold.

Funny story, when I was on BTN II, I actually surpassed the admin in posts and I didn't even realize it. Of course thats when I had a lot of time. Nowadays it seems like the opposite.

In another thread here, you said that now you count it by how long one has been a member. So how long do you have to be registered to be a Supreme Member? Something like 50 years?:confused:
