Forum Rankings & Titles
« on: February 05, 2005, 02:17:57 PM »
Can we get the Forum rankings changed to something, I dont know, more eye pleasing?  My personal wish would be allow a personalized one when you reach this point, or allow it to be edited in the CP.  Even if a admin had to change it, it wouldn't be too hard because there are so few that it wouldn't be half the forum begging.

Or even better still make new ranks and have it change every 50-100 posts or so.

Mmm...maybe you don't know the story behind the change.

The change was made because some one of the forums got upset when we used "God Otaku" for the highest ranking forum posters. The complaint was dumb, but kinda valid, so the change was made...with a twist. They made it something that NO ONE could find offense too. There's nothing there that's going to twist any one's underpants into a knot.

As for getting a custom tag, I heard at the Meet and Greet that that's a huge hassle. I may have misheard...but I dunno. And if it changes and stays at 500, there's going to be A LOT of people reaching that point soon. Webmistress Laurie and Tongo_Jeff have WAY too much to do in their outside lives to suffer our every whim.

I'm going to let the Admins take a crack at this and let them tell you their side of things...but that's what I know/heard.

Akari is correct about why our highest posting rank is somewhat unusual. ::)  However, I think a new ranking or two would indeed be fun!  Anyone care to make some suggestions?  You come up with the titles, and we'll ponder how to juggle the post counts.  Please keep your ideas non-offensive!  (I don't want to go through that mess again! ;D)

F.Y.I. our original and current ranking system is:
  • Newbie Otaku
  • Junior Otaku
  • Otaku
  • Senior Otaku
  • God Otaku  Non-Offensive, Highest Ranking Otaku

Not that I'm aware of. He and Ramiro aren't really friends anymore. He's not part of this group anyway.

Which reminds me...I think we may need another body for the rooms...

How about:
  • Otaku-newbie  (That's fun to say!)
  • Otaku-chan
  • Otaku-san
  • Otaku-sama
  • Otaku-sensei
Too obvious?  Maybe:
  • Forum Foundling
  • Otaku In Training
  • Otaku
  • Otaku Master
  • Otaku Supreme!  (No, strike that.  It sounds like something you order at Taco Bell! ::))  SHOGUN!
Keep those great ideas coming!

*stress stress stress*
I know someone that wants to go with us ^__^
His name is Derek Carter and he is in my Anime Club, I told him how much it would be and he seemed cool with it.

And no me and the other person aren't really friends any more and he won't be attending AD
