<font color=green>Maybe if those people that are voting for "could be better" could post what they think needs to be changed, we could come up with something more acceptable to everyone.

Re: Vote On New User Titles Here!

I'm wondering how you are going to figure out who picks the titles for people. Other than that I don't think it looks too bad. (i like it better than all that we've had) But I haven't voted yet untill I hear an answer to this.

Re: Vote On New User Titles Here!

<font face="Comic Sans MS">We did that on the GM forum for a bit and just let people suggest titles.. The people didn't have over 3k posts but it was just an experiment I wanted to try... It worked remarkably well... And ended up in titles that were fitting and more creative than the individuals would have picked... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Can have the peers suggest it and then vote on it for a week or something. There's many ways to set it up... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>

Re: Vote On New User Titles Here!

That sounds good to me.......a weeks worth of suggestions and a weeks voting. Or maybe 1/2 week of each. Can it be made into a "sticky" to keep it at the top? None the less..........looks good to me.

Re: Vote On New User Titles Here!

Remember the following in this process.

1) Any change in the present ratio will not take effect until the BBS subscriber reaches that that threshold in messages posted.

2) I can globally replace any title at any time in the database.

So, what I am saying is that the changes should resepct the old numerical ratios with, perhaps the addition of a new, highest level.

Re: Vote On New User Titles Here!

I vote for keeping the old titles- if it ain't broke don't fix it. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Vote On New User Titles Here!

thanks all you admin people for listen to us here on this board.. It is nice to see that a suggestion made is at least considered before a change is made..
