Would everyone here like customizable color usernames and custom ranks? I think this could be more fun than the ranking system I was originally going to implement in the coming days. Post up so I can get one or the other underway.

Custom ranks sounds good, not sure about username colors, though... Might get abused and we end up wth a rainbow colored forum. :P

I agree with Rikitatsu, this way we know who is in charge and not to mess with lol. about the ranking system, if your rank changes (promotes) according to the number of your posts, what happens is some people will post useless and hollow posts wherever they can, just to get promoted and have a better rank. Although I am sure these kinda people don't exist among us, but it almost always happens.

Theres little to worry about. Its handled well on Biohaze. People who post spam just to get post increases get their stuff deleted and get a warning.

Never really been a huge issue and I dont see it being a big problem here.

As I said, I have no doubt in the etiquette of the members of this website, just wanted to say that these things happen.

So I decided on the following.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=132&p=1539#p1539

Another small update:

  • Users can now set custom titles.

We've opted out of an actual ranking system in favor of a thanks system that positively reinforces general posting and contributions alike.

Users have the option to set their own custom title or rank in the 'User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Profile' area.


Make sure to follow the link, I also added other new features as of this morning.
