If you had admin level status, would you change these? If so, to what?

Or would you obliterate them altogether?

less than 1 week or under 20 posts - n00b
over 1 week or 20-50 posts - junior member
50+ - member
being here for more than a year - senior member.
around 2000 - CT if deserved.

this way, postpumping is discouraged, and staying with the community is encouraged. TIME not posts.

good idea, no?

I agree with the time titles myself. Time here is significantly more relevant than post count to how they post more often than not.

Nobby, since when have I insulted your intelligence? I have no idea what your IQ is, since most of the time I don't read your posts. I don't read your posts because a lot of the time it's just postpumping(plus your avatar and sig are always really annoying to look at ).

The best way to do it would be to combine postcount, time here, and maybe other stuff(like whether or not they still post, or their ppd).

Possible titles could be:
junior member - not been here for long and hasn't posted much
onetimer - only posted a few times and hasn't come back
member - posted a good bit(25-500??) and hasn't been here too long
forum king - posted a lot(~2000) or has been here for a while(1 or 2 yrs+)
Observer - been here a while, but doesn't post much
CT - like they're given now - to those who have shown that they are worthy

My thoughts:

I don't think a person should wait 2 years to have a custom title...and I don't think ranking should be based on how long the member has registered because what if some guy just registered to prove a point and didn't post a thing for like a year and returns to write yet another useless post?

To the people suggesting that some upper limit (1000, 2000, etc.) to the number of posts earns you a ct:
As long as you're dangling the ct out, you're encouraging post pumping, cuz who wouldn't want to have their choice of titles?

I'm still pushing my agenda of getting ratings turned on. I like the idea of no titles (just member, or llama, or citizen, or whatever), no post counts, and just ct's for those who've earned them. With thread ratings, people would be encouraged to post quality instead of quantity. What I'm shooting for is to transform the forums into more of a meritocracy than the way it is now. I checked , and there are also ratings hacks for people, in addition to the built-in thread-rating function.

-=Gonzotek=-

I was away for a while.
But I'm feeling much better now.

That's why I put in some of what I said. There would be different titles for people who used to post, but stopped posting(kinda like onetimer).

Postpumper should also be a possible title.

I like the current CT strings...
Some users have CT, so what? I mean...
the quality of the post counts, right?

My ideas, which I think is the best so far (no offence to anyone), is this:
[list=1][*]nobody but MOTM, mods, and admins get a CT, no mater what their postcount/length of time here is. MOTM's title will be removed after a month, and a PM will be sent when they get the title letting them know when they can expect it to expire.[*]Everybody gets their own CT. That's right, everyone can choose their own. MODS will have (mod) (admin) under theirs. MOTM will get MOTM Jan 2004 under their chosen CT, and again, it will expire in a month.[*]Again, everyone has their own CT, but you don't get to choose it. Why? Because your post count is your CT, unless you are a mod/admin.[/list=1]

those are my ideas, take 'em or leave 'em

How about people vote for other people's titles? like next to a person's post or something you can rate that post and it will affect the person's title. Just an idea, maybe it would be difficult to implement. but that would be a good way to gauge how well respected a member is among the other members.

Mattress, I think that would contribute to more useless threads like: "Rate my clever post" and stuff.

"What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad." I have choosen the red pil.

As long as I can exploit the system to get a CT, I dont care.

Time titles though are much better.
