If rank is determined by current points, what does the second number of rank represent? What I mean is, if you hover the mouse cursor over the rank badge, theres 2 numbers there, one equals the rank, but theres a second number as well. Whats that for?August 18, 2022 at 10:26 pm #1858003August 18, 2022 at 11:12 pm #1858007EthiopiaParticipantRank:
I don’t think that that’s at all proper. You could get a higher rank just by visiting every day and saving visit points.
One should climb higher by posting items, giving points to art contests, running art contests, helping folks in the forums, giving points away to the pointless (“me and my arroooow, straight up and narroooow”) and other contributions to the place.August 18, 2022 at 11:56 pm #1858015
@Gts6 Good question. I assumed it was a sub-rank to show how close people were to the next rank. But looking at them in this thread, that wouldn’t make much sense.
@Ethiopia I like having something to show that a member is active and/or has been around for a while. Point total/rank is one way of doing that, but flawed for obvious reasons.
@Frank22 I’m testing your theory. EDIT: Looks like that’s not the threshold, unless it takes some time to update.August 19, 2022 at 12:02 am #1858020
Yes I agree Ethiopia that would be nice. But it would mean making a new points system and boots on the ground to administer it, that the site doesn’t have. Let alone dealing with inevitable disputes…. “I didn’t get my points for helping so-and-so” etc. I see things like running comps, giving points to the pointless and sharing in Free Resources as charitable acts and conducive to the community spirit. Personal ranking aside, you don’t really need many points anyway unless you’re a shopaholic.August 19, 2022 at 12:07 am #1858022August 19, 2022 at 12:11 am #1858023August 19, 2022 at 12:17 am #1858026August 19, 2022 at 12:25 am #1858027
I don’t know what the rank thresholds are. I know they get exponentially higher each time, but I haven’t kept track. (I truly don’t care about rank, if my sarcasm above wasn’t obvious.)August 19, 2022 at 12:37 am #1858029
OK, sorry. But with ranking currently only determined by points we’d have to change that system. I agree that the 10 points one gets for the effort of starting and administering an art contest doesn’t seem equitable when you get ten points just for starting a new thread.August 19, 2022 at 12:40 am #1858030
“Don’t know?” @Enjoyify – and you call yourself a Rank 6…. pffft (with eyeroll).August 19, 2022 at 12:49 am #1858031
Have I mentioned the secret VIP sub-forums that are only available to high-ranking members?August 19, 2022 at 2:01 am #1858042
LOL, what goes on there?August 19, 2022 at 5:40 am #1858070stachelzelleParticipantRank:
There are far too many lowly Rank 1s and Rank 2s in this thread. Please ask a Rank 6 for permission before offering commentary.August 19, 2022 at 7:11 am #1858091
