Topic: User Ranks

There are Title Ranks and Star Ranks.

http://bobafett.com/boards/img/pip.gif

> 10 = 2 stars
> 50 = 3 stars
> 100 = 4 stars
> 300 = 5 stars
> 500 = 6 stars
> 1000 = 7 stars
> 2000 = 8 stars
> 3000 = 9 stars
> 5000 = 10 stars

We can change these to be more realistic, as well as the icon. Could be Mandalorian.

Just a little something to work with, maybe?  I know these ranks seem overtly military, but hey, look who you're talking to.

Talk to you later.

Re: User Ranks

I don't think we should use too many clone-type ranks, as that would sound like we supported the Prequel backstory more than the original.  We should have a mixture of the old and the new.

10—2 star--Clone Trooper (I definitely agree that the lowest rank should be some kind of clone.)
50—3 stars--Hired Thug (or something along those lines)
100—4 stars--Assassin (or smuggler, etc.--something less illustrious than a bounty hunter)
300—5 stars--Mercenary (this could be switched with assassin)
500—6 stars--Bounty Hunter
1000—7 stars--Journeyman Protector
2000—8 stars--Mandalorian (or Mandalorian Warrior)
3000—9 stars--whatever the Mandalorians called their officers (squad leaders or something?)

Will we need a rank for 5000 posts?  Obi-Wan Fett has the most posts, and she has less than 3000.  No one else is even close to that.  I think there are only 3 or 4 people who have hit 1000.

A lot of our dedicated users are at the 300-500 level, so we would have a lot of mercenaries and bounty hunters, which makes sense.  And many of the ranks I suggested can be switched around.  Personally, it seems like a Journeyman Protector would be more illustrious than a bounty hunter (seeing as how anyone can become a hunter.)

I think the Mandalore rank should be reserved for the Admin.  After all, there can only be one Mandalore.  wink

Re: User Ranks

We can change the numbers, too. 3,000 is just a preset here.

10 = Clone
25 = Renegade
50 = Smuggler
100 = Mercenary
250 = Journeyman Protector
500 = Bounty Hunter
750 = Mandalorian Warrior
1000 = Mandalorian Super Commando

Thoughts?

Re: User Ranks

Sounds good to me, I was going to suggest putting Journeyman Protector before Bounty Hunter - otherwise it sounds like Boba demoted himself wink You could probably leave the stars as well, if that's do-able.

Re: User Ranks

It all sounds good to me.  (But just in case, will Mandalorian Super Commando fit on the page, or will it stretch everything out?)

Re: User Ranks

Great. I'll change it over after the holiday, or late Friday.

Nothing should mess up here, given the adjustable format. Try making your browser window smaller. It adjusts here, unlike before. Titles on the left here will just break to the next line.

Re: User Ranks

I'd change Smuggler with something else.  Nothing come to mind, right off the bat, though.  Other than that, they look pretty cool.  I also like the number scoring sytem from before, though, for the stars. 

> 10 = 2 stars
> 50 = 3 stars
> 100 = 4 stars
> 300 = 5 stars
> 500 = 6 stars
> 1000 = 7 stars
> 2000 = 8 stars
> 3000 = 9 stars
> 5000 = 10 stars

Hope you all had a happy holiday.

Re: User Ranks

Shouldn't they match the name ranks? It might be confusing.

aaron@bobafettfanclub.com

Re: User Ranks

Never mind.  I was thinking that the numbers didn't need to change, but I didn't read all of Chrys' comment that only a few people had even made 1000 posts.  Yeah, I'd leave the numbers the same, then.

Pfft. Me and her could've hit 5000 if we'd been consistent wink

Re: User Ranks

So I'm guessing the counter will not be returning (other than on one's profile?)

Re: User Ranks

It's an easy fix. We could put it on the same line as something else, like after the stars in parenthesis.

Re: User Ranks

I like the way you guys set this up. You guys got some good minds makin this stuff up smile 

Would have been cool if you kept it "overtly military" though. (Made it seem more of a structured enviroment.)

Either way, keep up the good job! Kudos to you all.

Kel Solaar at your service, for a price...

Re: User Ranks

Glad you appreciate it, Kel. Spread the good word. There's more comin'.

Re: User Ranks

Yea, that sounds cool, good job guys!

Re: User Ranks

Awesome job.

Re: User Ranks

I am guessing it is like this:

10 = Clone
25 = Renegade
50 = Smuggler
100 = Mercenary
250 = Journeyman Protector
500 = Bounty Hunter
750 = Mandalorian Warrior
1000 = Mandalorian Super Commando

I agree, except that I would assume that 1000 equals Mandalore. It is also possible that Jedi hunter is a rank.

That's an interesting thought. Then we could add a 2500 rank and a 5000 rank as well. I really think we need those two...

Re: User Ranks

Hm... There is no 5 star rank. That is strange. Miba has just reached "Journeyman Protector", yet she still has 5 stars... Is this purposeful, or should it be fixed?

Re: User Ranks

Yeah, I was curious about that too. I'd heard we get more than four stars now?

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: User Ranks

I'll double check. The titles and stars might be on different numbers, as they're both custom. wink
