Writting. You "Write" your posts. It could be a keyboard but a pencil has the minor pun in it.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

I like the achievements idea, but the problem is we are limited not only to how many characters we can have in our sigs, but also to 2 images, so it would make awards a little harder.

One thing I was thinking of recently actually regarding ranks is inspired from another forums I'm on.  Basically, as ranks increase, so do your privileges.  In  other words, as you get a higher rank, you are able to do things like put more images in posts, etc (I've just realised I haven't thought it through quite as well as I thought I had :P ).  The other place uses a different software, but I would have thought that SMF would have some sort of feature that would allow a similar thing to be implemented.

What if you replace heads for the achievement stars.

The problem with that is it encourages quantity of posts, not quality.

As I said, I haven't thought it through as well as I had thought.  I guess with the community here being quite small (especially compared to the other site!) it isn't something that would have a significant impact, and I'm now thinking about whether or not achievements would be in the same category.  I guess for me the thing we need to work on is the member awards thing talked about in off topic.  That has lots of room for growth.

Somebody should request it.  :D :D :D

Ok, here is a request.

Request:

over in the rank promotion topic, we have been discussing how cool it would be to have more ranks. i said earlier in that thread:

i think there should be something after commander...like...well i din't know. i miss being promoted...

and theres where it all started... ANYways, heres what me, RC-1989, and flyboy424 brushed together:

Ok that sounds better... but how would be the ranking?
1000 = commander
1138 = private elite
1500 = sergeant elite
2000 = lieutenant elite
3000 = captain elite
4000 = major elite
5000 = commander elite


it's what i like to call "A Start", or "The beginning of Progress."... so what do you think, Amy?

(i have a feeling it's going to take a while for Amy to see this, so don't mind budging in mods...)

Any more posts in this thread about achieving ranks will be deleted and the poster's post count adjusted downwards as necessary. Because this constitutes something called "spamming". I will also poke you repeatedly with a very pointy stick. Fair warning.

If you need to squee about achieving ranks, do it in the following thread and ONLY in the following thread:
