Hi, erikm

 

The title options are tentative and we haven’t decided the final one yet. We’re open to any new suggestions.

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

I would say it would be great if we can use some Si series and Gecko series.

But if have to go with above series then i would like to go with general which is FIRST option.

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

Oh dear,

'Gecko Units' ? Really ?  That's far too twee.

 

Borg gains a few points for SiBorg play, but this is 2015 guys...

 

Game ? Well, getting close, but they are more random than rank.

 

Some may prefer to be a Ninja than Genius..., or a Legend may trump Master ...

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

I would go for the middle one, even though I dont like sci fi normally! Are the ranks based on number of posts or what? Some places have a reputation bar that got by people saying thank you etc, this in many ways tells you more about the quality of advice by that person than the post number does.

So maybe a system where by you get rank or points by the number of thanks would be better??? I know we have Kudos for that nice warm fuzzy feeling, but a thanks button and some kind of rank based on that would tell you who's advice was normally considered good and was full of s@@t.

Just an idea

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

I would go for the game option.

 

However, I think Legend should be a higher rank than master. I also like the scify, but especially the higher-rank names are somewhat indistinctive. You could maybe mix the scify and game titles:

 

1. New-SiBorg

2. Rookie-SiBorg

3. Sentient-SiBorg

4. Explorer-SiBorg

5. Unstoppable-SiBorg

6. Ninja-SiBorg

7. Genius-SiBorg

8. Master-SiBorg

9. Legend-SiBorg

10. Omniscient-SiBorg

Hi, LG11 

 

We'll post details on how to receive points to earn a higher rank and rewards program after finalizing the rank titles. But the quick answer is that they'll be mostly based on the number of posts, kudos, and Accept as Solution.

I prefer game options. That way the uninformed have some small notion of what is going on.

a very important point.  If someone comes here for the first time and get an answer, it would be nice that person could have an idea how (presumed) qualified the reply was.

 

I, personally, think that "clear and understandable" is far more important than "cute" which seems to be the goal of some of the above

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

I don't prefer any of the suggested titles. IMHO they all sound...babyish? Don't know if this is the right word for it.

So, something like 'newbie' and 'expert' at both ends of the scale would be sufficient (and neutral, not sci-fi nor western nor something else), along with SG11's suggestion for ranking by number of 'thanks' given to a user. The problem here is that this needs every user to really 'thank' someone if the corresponding answer was helpful.

 

Regards,

 

Scotty

Only amongst those with very few posts, I notice....

Some things get 'old' very quickly.....

 

The easiest way to judge a reply, is to look at the number of posts, trendy tags matter less.

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

if the objective is to give a clear, at a glance ranking, then one sector has rankings down to a fine-art.

 

Choose as many, or as few,  as you like :

 

Field Marshal1     
General     
Lieutenant-General     
Major-General     
Brigadier     
Colonel     
Lieutenant-Colonel     
Major     
Captain     
Lieutenant     
Second Lieutenant
Sergeant Major
Sergeant     
Corporal
Private
Cadet

I like the SiBorg post-fix. But the game ranking is more informative.

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

I`m like Gekos, but the SiGecko naming scheme looks some....strange. Personally I prefer old scheme from Lizard Lounge - it was funny and clear to understand. But if I need to choose between this three my selection is first one in HallMark`s variant.

I like the game titles but I agree with some previous comments:

A legend is probably higher than a master.

Re: Vote for your favorite community rank titles!

all those 'cute' 'smart' 'elegant' suggestions above totally ignore that understandability is the one criteria tat matters. what would a newcomer get from "purple gecko with yellow spots" or " brigadier general" or whatever

 

what about simply
* newbie

**

***

****

***** old timer

no, it is not cute but it is understandable to everyone which should be the purpose, not showing how inventive the ratings system can be
