The Game. (member level privleges)
« on: August 26, 2010, 09:41:03 pm »
UPDATE (Feb 14 2014): Since people have been asking about usergroups for a while, here is an updated list.

Quote
LV0 - Newcomer - 0 posts - After you make 1 post, you can edit your signature, avatar and profile info.
LV1 - Newcomer - 5 posts - Can send private messages to other members (assuming they have their inbox turned ON).
LV2 - Member - 20 posts - Can rate posts and vote in polls.
LV3 - Member - 40 posts - Can use OmnomIRC and upload files to the downloads section (Attach file to post then upload link).
LV4 - Regular - 100 posts
LV5 - Advanced - 200 posts
LV6 - Super Member - 300 posts
LV7 - Elite - 500 posts
LV8 - Addict - 700 posts
LV9 - Veteran - 1000 posts - File uploads are approved automatically (providing you follow the rules). Can add custom title below your nickname (staff can do so at any level).
LV10 - 31337 u53r - 1337 posts
LV11 - Super Veteran - 2000 posts
LV12 - Extreme Poster - 3000 posts
LV13 - Extreme Addict - 5000 posts
LV14 - Eater of Nethams - 9001 posts
LV15 - Omnimagician - 31337 posts

Original news content (as of August 2010) follows:

There was another small forum update last night involving member groups. Now, as you can see when reading topics, each forum member are ranked by a level from 0 to 10. Those are simply post count rank groups and here they are below. First, the LV, secondly, the title, third, the required post count and finally, if applicable, the special privilege you earn with this user group:

LV0 - Newcomer - 0 posts - Initial group. Can post on the forums. At 1 post, you can edit your personal profile info such as website links and signature (spambot protection)
LV1 - Newcomer - 5 posts - Can send private messages to other members
LV2 - Member - 20 posts - Can use OmnomIRC
LV3 - Member - 50 posts - Can use the arcade
LV4 - Regular - 100 posts - Can upload files to the TI game/tools download section and wait for a manager to approve them (coming soon)
LV5 - Advanced - 200 posts
LV6 - Super Member - 300 posts
LV7 - Elite - 500 posts
LV8 - Addict - 700 posts
LV9 - Veteran - 1000 posts - Can add custom title below your nickname (staff can do so at any level)
LV10 - Super Veteran - 2000 posts

We thought it would be cool to have something slightly similar to RPG systems. Eventually, we may add more groups and we might attempt at re-adding a forum shop like we had in 2005, if we can find a reliable one. Note to our spammers, note that the Randomness and Intro section doesn't increase your post counts and we have the ability to reset post counts to zero. ;)

This is great idea! It makes it easier for new members to know when privileges are unlocked. Out of curiosity, what would be in the forum shop and how would we buy/exchange them?

I didn't really see which ones to add. The first few privileges are really basic anyway. The arcade one was there for ages and the downloads section one was planned this way for a while. Everything below 50 are spam protections or the like. I would add privileges for the glitches/walkthrough section too, but it doesn't appear to work (I last tried half a year ago).

I see. Okay, that's fine.  Note: This is my 300th post. Yay, super member!

Thanks ^^

Thanks to Hot Dog too, for having taken the initiative to start the addition of this (although normally I prefer if admins ask first, he reminded me this feature even existed at all on the forums lol ;D)

I love the new level system :) Its another way to quickly glance at a person and see who they are in terms of knowledge and community involvement.

True, and potential spam can be countered by the fact we have a section just for that, which doesn't count toward people total count. So people can't postcount++ then boast about it even if they didn't contribute anything useful to the community :)
