I think the ranking idea is a great idea.
I think the ranking being related to post count is a terrible idea.
We should have custom titles or ranks,
but have them be given out by RevMen,
and sparingly.June 17, 2003 at 9:49 am #5585
to get a few things straight… Hali’s not a Mod, he was the directory-Guy
second, to borrow a section from an e-mail I recently sent Rev (on a completely different subject) –
custom titles – now, the post count related titles were removed by Jason for a reason. This hobby, by it’s nature can and does attract young kids who, sometimes lack self control, so to stop the spamming to reach the next title, they were removed.
I did then, and do now, agree with him in that decision… but mearly replacing them with nothing, and handing out the “respected member” title to the select few seemed to suck a little life and fun out of it a little.
A few forums I have visited have had one, single, thread stickied to the top, where forum members, who, upon reaching a certain post count or “contributing member reputation” (not an obvious or notorious Spammer or troll) could post to the thread requesting either, a title from a set of predetermined custom titles, OR a custom title of their choosing (different methods from different forums, I don’t suggest both methods at the same time)
Custom titles are fun, no question, and if properly mediated/controlled I
think this can work well.
(- end of lazy copy paste from email manuver)
there are obvious problems with this method, mainly that of one of those “less mature of attitide” people constantly Nagging whovever is put in control of this responcibility, but perhaps the threat of a responce of equal “maturity” – such as the nagger being stuck with “nagging child” or something similar stapled under their name for a week or two till they learn their lesson…
I’m opposed to “ranks” that would promote a form of eliteism, but custom titles, handed out to those who “prove themselves” as a usefull, or entertaining community member, can add some fun.

That’s what I was trying to get at. Revmen would be in charge of handing out custom titles sporatically. There’s no post count you have to reach, number of films you have to make, you just have to be considered a good member. It just kinda comes outta the blue.
