New Ranking System (replaces Post Count Stars)
- 8Dec 29, '13 by Joe V AdminIf you miss the Post Count Stars don't sweat it. The same output is still available but in text format (no star image).
Over the year we had some great feedback regarding the stars. We heard you loud and clear.
Two big issues came up frequently:
- People had problems with the colors. They sometimes couldn't tell Bronze from Silver.
- The stars looked more like a rating of the content.
For this reason, we dropped the Post Count Stars and replaced them with a new Ranking System. The ranking system is a representation of your post count status. It will help improve visibility of our outstanding members. It can be used to quickly and efficiently find the most active users on a topic. Members can use these ranks to stand out from the many members that we have.
With the new ranking system we get the following...
Before, we had the following stars and colors...
The ranks are attached to the bottom of your avatar.
The following ranks are available: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum. Each 'rank' will have 6 levels.
For example, the 6 levels of Bronze...
- Bronze: 0- 14 posts
- Bronze 1: 15-49
- Bronze 2: 50-199
- Bronze 3: 200-399
- Bronze 4: 400-699
- Bronze 5: 700-999
Silver 1000-9999 posts (6 levels)
Gold 10000-29999 posts (6 levels)
Platinum >= 30000 posts (0 levels)
