Ranking System - Final Adjustments

M1ck3y asked me to set up this thread using the baseline we established in an earlier thread. Members will have a few days to suggest any final adjustments for the ranks.
Here’s the list as it stands:

For Members: No Grade < First Grade < Speed Grade < High Grade < Real Grade < Master Grade < Perfect Grade < Custom Title

For Mods: see poll (choices arranged alphabetically)

We want your input. So please participate! :slight_smile:

I think this sounds awesome. :smiley:

I like this, but why would we everyone get a custom title (after PG) if mods get one?

Regardless. Custom is best, you can name yourself a coordinator.

I thought of voting Custom, but I believe that mods sharing a rank helps to confirm who is a mod as opposed to who isn’t (there are people who are color blind/visually impaired after all).
It should also be noted that, while the poll was open, people were allowed to change their vote (as in virtually all of my polls); I left that little bit in there, in case people changed their mind or wanted to switch to their second choice in the event that their first choice was losing.
In any case, assuming M1ck3y follows my suggestions regarding post counts required for ranks, we won’t be seeing anyone with a custom rank (or any of the higher end ranks) for a good long while. Before anyone asks about post count requirements, be aware that I suggested to M1ck3y that we keep the actual post count requirements hidden as a way to discourage post-count/ranking whores from trying to boost their ranks.

I am in much agreement with this.

Too right mate. I was just wondering, but does this still mean that regular members can still make a custom class after PG? I’m sure it’s all set in stone, but just asking.

It should. M1ck3y just has to code the ranks in for the Naturals. :wink:

I must ask whatever happened to implementing this ranking system; the members (at the time at least) liked it. It seemed all set to go, then m1ck3y went on hiatus for a month or so, members engaged in a very heated argument, I ultimately left (and resigned from being a mod), and then nothing further seems to have happened with it. Did implementing it get lost in the move?

Yeah I think it did get lost. We’re all about ready to implement the system, just trying to figure out post counts. Hopefully we’ll have it all go in a week or so.

Do you still have my suggestions for post count requirements?

Ima little slow here concerning this matter and yes ive read the whole thread and im still confused, what exactly is this Ranking system gonna look like pray tell?

See first post (assuming they didn’t change it after I stepped down).

Yes we do, I’ll make sure we get on this right away, I really want some gundam themed rankings ASAP.

Are you referring to my post count suggestions (I had already sent another copy, just in case)?

Edit: just got a PM. He received my list. :slight_smile:

Is this the List you’re talking about?

The member one, yeah. Coordinator won the poll for mod title at the time, although since they’ve taken to calling themselves “Super Moderators,” I not know if they’ll adopt that part of the ranking system or not.

btw: If this is the List, how do you know that youve quailified for a certain grade (Ex: X amount of posts=MG)?

Pretty much. I assume, once it’s been implemented, the new rank replace your current “Senior Member” title. As for actual post counts required for each rank, at the time, I suggested to m1ck3y to keep the required numbers hidden, in order to prevent post count boosting.

oh so thats what you meant. that is a good idea concerning that, so idiots like me when im wigged out when there is a full moon dont go sayin stuff like “Awesome!!” or “LLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!”, believe me, i got on this forum one time and just went lulu and i went about post all sorts of crazy. the next morning i got a message from GNZ saying, and im paraphrasing, to chill out. back on topic, yeah that is a good time to conceal the post count scores.

Well personally, if it’s possible just change mine to GN-001. :D:D:D:D
