[Solved] New ranks?

Post by jacmoe » Wed Feb 02, 2011 3:32 pm

/* moved from moderators forum */

Now you are a Veteran when you reach 250 posts.

What about 500 posts?
1000 posts?
2000 ?
5000 ?

It costs nothing to add them. :)

Any ideas for the names?

Hmm;

Expert for 1000.
Elite for 2000
Guru for 5000

I like Guru though.

We had Greenhorn once?
Then we could also use Sergeant, etc.
Well, I am not sure if it sounds that good.. :wink:

I've just moved this out in the open so that we can get some more ideas.
No guarantees though, but I feel it's about time we add some more post-count based ranks.
Just for the fun of it. :)

What about some Ogre-related titles that would liven up the place a little bit? Like Badass Peasant Eater and such?

Also, I like it how the forum is changing uhm... today :P I hope that will draw some more people here (it's usually pretty empty imo)

If possible, shouldn't these ranks be based on kudos now as someone could have 1,000 help posts and be classed as a Master?

ehm
sincerely rank after 500 post is too low, i think that similar rank is minimum after 1500 post :)
(sure i'm not a veteran of ogre, i'm only a noob that request suggests to peoples more aware on Ogre ;) )

Forum Veteran sounds fine after 250 posts.

We need some names which reflects the fact that it's post-based.

Newcomer
Familiar Face
Regular
Veteran

Lives here
Part of the furniture

I am not so sure about 'master' and 'guru' either. :)
Should be tied to Kudos count, although such linkage doesn't exist.

I love these two :D . And I also think 250 is way too low for a veteran. A veteran in my understanding is someone that has been around for a long time and has many posts. But veteran does not imply quality.

I in fact also somewhat like the idea to have special ranks that are given based on the kudos (guru in all its forms).

And yeah: Expert is a special title only given to selected fews and comes along with a forum badge which all other automatic titles should not have!

The first ones are fine, but I would try to get rid of the "advanced" ones and come up with others similar to the furniture ("comes regularly to eat here").

And no "l33t".

Shouldn't be too long between each rank.
And most Ogre community members will never reach Elite.
My suggestions are deliberately humorous as post count shouldn't be taken too seriously. :)
It's an indicator of how much people like it here, not much else.

Yes, we are definetly on the same page here. In order to be funny we should get rid of those "advanced" and try to come up with good replacements for them. And you are right that we need narrow areas between the first rank switches.

We could use 'Lesser' and 'Greater' instead of semi and advanced - maybe.
Would also be fun to use the word Bastard - as in Bastard Veteran. Meaning: lesser veteran. :)
