I use a forum where everybody is a 'registered user' if they're not 'staff' of some description, but when you hit a specific post count you can apply to have it changed to a phrase of your choice - which I think works quite well

Well in that case I want to be a "Dynamic Blockhead"

I agreee that it is a bit of a jump from 500 to 2000.... there a quite a few "super members" to speak of...

 

Perhaps keep the basic titles you have already and add some more in between, like... maybe Endeavouring Member, or Treasured Poster, I don't know.. :P :P

Or, maybe, with the continuation of a theme.. base it on our mascot in the top-right:

 

 

Minnow 0-9 posts

Perch 10-24 posts

Carp 25-99 posts

Trout 100-499 posts

Catfish 500-1999 posts

Swordfish 2000-4999 posts

Shark 5000 and above

 

Or something along those lines... :P

:shock: Nice work!

 

Does anybody else think we need to keep it short and simple though? :unsure:

 

We'd have people paying too much attention to bumping up post counts if it's too interesting and the next level too easily attainable!

Good point,... I think, just shorten the gap between 500-2000..., makes life more interesting without people just posting for the sake of posting... :P

I think that a better way of showing the active status of a forum member, is to have a rating based on the number of posts per day.

In that case 'Le MAC' will get the highest rating I guess with average 9.6 posts per day:shock:

Now what would be clever is whether the post could be categorized as tecnical information or persiflage, and only the technical posts earning status :D

Or two separate statuses - one "The Tech Support" (for tech-count more than 7 posts per day) and one "The Bantering Ninny" (for chat-count more than 7posts per day) :thumbsup:

I was under the impression that any posts in the chat forums didn't count towards the post count.. :huh:
