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!

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!

When someone was approaching the 3,000 posts threshold (is it 3,000?  I think so), he/she asked what the prize was.  Discussion settled on a splendid purple cloak.
 
"I'll get me coat" was a catchphrase from a Brit sketch show.  The formula was that group of people would be talking, then one person (always the same one) would say something inappropriate, totally killing the conversation.  He'd leave, embarrassed.
It was funnier than this description. Wink

But back to forum suggestions: I'd like to know how many posts are required to reach the levels that are already implemented.

As someone else pointed out, if you go to the Members List, You can check the rankings and number of posts and that will give you a good guide.
 
Based on my own recent promotion, it seems that 400 is the cutoff point before becoming a Young Happy Wilsonette.

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
