I’ve noticed that some other forums have ranks and that we do too. Like participant and moderator. What if there were ranks on this forum for example.
10 Posts= Recruit
100 = Nexus Force Veteran
The more active people are the more they will be rewarded through new titles. I think this would be a really good way to introduce more activity into this community.
Opps almost forgot the numbers mean topics created.
I don’t have anything against your idea, but I wouldn’t suggest the number of topics to count as points. If you want to do so, do it like LUNI points back in the timtechsoftware days.
Ranks are always fun. But I’m not sure if you followed Timtechsoftware during the LU points days. It resulted in people like REDSUPERHERO coming on and posting 80 times a day asking about progress. IMO it just asks for pointless spam from people wanting recognition. Though I am not 100% against the idea. It does give the people who’ve been posting for a while some recognition above the new people.
Maybe points could be rewarded once a week. Like let’s say 10 points a week. If you get 100 you get recruit.
I did something like this called LUPoints, but it kind of encouraged spam… what we could do is display titles based on how long the user has been on the site.
Yea. All LU Points did was get me hate mail from Jonny :P.
“Turn of CDF’s LUPoints, he has too many.”
Ok what if we were to revamp the system like this.
If you come onto the site at least once a week you get ten LU points
If you get let’s say 100 Points you get to a new rank.
That would stop spam while also making rewards fun and it would encourage people to log in. Maybe display the points under the names and the ranks are in the place where Moderator/Participant are?
Awesome. Thanks for taking my ideas Tim. I’ll see if I can think of any more to improve the site.
Maybe implement a thanks feature, and ranks are based off of how many people thank you?
