Member ranks

You might have noticed a "Rookie" or "Flatfoot" next to your handle the last couple of days. This indicates your rank in the Pixel Joint chain. You can increase your rank by posting more comments and pixel art pieces and ratings (coming very soon). You go up a rank for every 100 combined points you contribute (1 point for each comment, 1 point for each pixel piece, 1 point for each rating). You can also choose what "rank theme" you would like to use in your user profile. Right now we have two -- Crime Syndicate and Law and Order.

we have this at blood sports forum, except we use the "black belt" way.

Heh, I probably will add a permanent page that explains ratings/rankings... I'll post the link on this news item when it's ready.

I've been really into army ranks lately. *Looks at avatar*

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 1/30/2005 11:22
Good call Brian. I'll add that when I get back to coding.

Brian the Great (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/30/2005 09:45
Well done, well done. Maybe an idea to add army ranks? cool

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 1/28/2005 00:53
Go to your profile (click on your name) and then click on "Edit Profile".

Change your Rank Theme to Crime Syndicate and save it. Ta-da!

How do I change from Law and Order to Crime Syndicate?

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 1/27/2005 21:35
If you want to do that when you get to 300 we'll deal with it when the time comes Mr. Thug. cool

Could you add a lock feature so when you get 300 points you can lock at assassin wink

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 1/27/2005 15:48
Thx mates!

AlmightyB00J: Yes, the points will be added soon. It will appear anywhere you see the rank of a member.

Dejital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/27/2005 08:52
W00t! Great job with the ratings. I'm going to do some rating later on today.

AlmightyB00J (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/27/2005 08:35
Also, don't you think you should add next to the stats on Profile (Where it says Pixels, Ratings, etc) how many points you have? cool

AlmightyB00J (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/27/2005 08:32
Nice system...

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 1/26/2005 17:13
Belle, you are absolutely right.

I like the ranking feature on forums because it's kind of a silly reward for participating, but "rank" certainly doesn't entitle anyone to be 'holier than thou'. That is just annoying as all heck.

Everyone's rating counts the same. big smile

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 1/26/2005 17:07
OK Dejital. I'll add that.

Belle (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/26/2005 15:08
Ahh, very clever. ;)
Just try not to be too stats driven, the last thing we need is 'holier than thou' infection.

Dejital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/26/2005 09:30
I love this. Great job, sedge. big smile
I just can't wait for the ratings, oh, and be sure you guys add a "no-ratings" option so that our WIP's won't get judged too critically.
