Custom Ranks

on 1/16/2016, 1:40 pm
Ok so I know our rank already changes after a certain amount of post. but I was thinking maybe we can have an option for custom ranks as well, with new members gaining this option after 1000 or so post.

now obviously if this feature is approved we'll need some kind of restriction on what words we are allowed to use so that no one can edit it to say mod or admin ect.(like the site won't save the rank if i tried to put "M0D or MOD" just to avoid confusion and also to avoid possible dicks that may want to pretend to be a mod to mess with other users.

and i don't just mean we get to edit the title of the ranks i mean the icons/pic as well.

hows that sound to you guys.

Idk, I feel like that'd defeat the purpose of the ranks. I've seen other forums do it and I never really got into it.

Custom titles would be kinda cool though, which is basically the same concept but keeping the standard rankings as well so there's still a sense of cohesion.

i don't mean get rid of the standard ranks, i just mean have them as a default with the option to change for those who want it.

also how about an option to choose previous icons, in case your favorite can't be seen anymore since you ranked up.

I do like that, but I have to agree with granny. Ranks are a good way to show new people how the hierarchy is on this site.

With custom ranks I would have to create the rank, so it wouldn't really be all that custom. Also, that would mean that we would have to implement some sort of language control on what someone would have on their rank title. Obviously something like "penis fucker" would not be an acceptable rank title.

Now, what I think I can do is allow people to have their own rank titles provided they meet the requirements and merits. For example, let's say we have a user that really knows the ins and outs of Flash. They've submitted tons of Flash tutorials that are a ton of help and the users here hold this person as an extremely well-respected member of the community. If they requested to have the title of "Master of Flash" then I think it is something that I would allow and it is something I could do.

Of course, though, the problem with this system is that while it shows the general userbase that if you're a great user that shares a lot of knowledge and really pushes the community forward you will be rewarded, but that also means the userbase has to agree on what constitutes as a "great" user which is somewhat subjective and gets complicated fast.

So I believe it would be for the best to just leave ranks and rank titles as they are. Maybe I will update them a bit in the future, but for now I think it's best to keep them how they are.
