Themed PTF Ranks
04. Oct 2005 at 01:42
 
 
I've seen this done in other forums - using a band theme for the member rankings. For example:
 
0-50 posts: Small Fish
51-200 posts: Navigator
201-400 posts: Phantom
401-700 posts: Prodigal
701-1000 posts: Pure Narc
1001-???? posts: Demigod

No, it's a band thing.  Apart from the band techs, no-one in this forum knows what it means.  We're not just being mysterious!

Not at all. I always forget the emoticon.  Wink If the mods ever did decide to do something like this, I'm sure they could come up with better names than the ones I suggested.

It wouldn't be difficult at all, but since Simon has already set the 'ranks' (left hand side below your user name) it's up to him

But wouldn't your god powers just cancel each other out?  Then there'd be some fistas and haymakers around heres.

This is probably one of the best forums I've been a part of as far as the community and the layout are concerned. Whatever the guys decide to do, it's still going to be an excellent place to spend time.

It is not really an issue for me; I'm not a goddess (but I think I might have been when I was in college-ASU) anyway, whether with a "G" or a demi-goddess "g", the number of stars doesn't really designate anything other than how many posts have been made; I've seen a lot of so-called "Newbies" that have it really together and know much more than I do about most of what goes on in PT land; however I think no one could love the band more than I do!

NO SH.. !
We all should have figured that one out. I guess we don't see the obvious and just dump those files in our brain since it is SO obvious (does that make sense?) "STOP MAKING SENSE"-David Byrne.  undecided embarrassed  Huh

Oh no wait... it's "you're heretically welcome".
 
But back to forum suggestions: I'd like to know how many posts are required to reach the levels that are already implemented.
