Rankings

Postby Linda » Tue Jun 14, 2005 12:20 pm

Is there somewhere that the ranking levels could be posted - maybe as a sticky - so that we can refer to it when we want to? I'm always wondering what rank I'm going to next and how many posts I need to make before I get there. Right now I haven't a clue as to where to find them.

0-19) Newbie

I, for one, am happy you did it.

Thanks to all the previous posters. :)

I always go back to the post of, "Why Am I helpless?" Then look through the arguments for the list...this is much more convenient. Great idea Linda!

Ahhhhhh - Messie is now no longer puzzled ... (I was about to ask a Guru why was I helpless - I hadn't realised it was a ranking level :lol: and very funny categories too)

Current Ranks

Postby forumadmin » Wed Jul 12, 2006 8:05 am

Here is a list of the ranks currentl in effect:

Rank Title - Minimum Posts
Site Admin -
Moderator -
Big Kahuna - Special Rank


    Registered Member - opt out designation
    n00bie - 0
    Helpless - 10
    Trapped Under Ice - 100
    Bad Seed - 250
    Frantic - 350
    Hero Of The Day - 550
    Outlaw Torn - 900
    Stone Cold Crazy - 1500
    Holier Than Thou - 5000
    Mastermind - 10000


Ranks are just a fun option that came with the software for this site. The titles are mostly song titles from Metallica, which is a group favored by the cofounder of the original Brainformation.

The admin titles are not up for review, but the rest are pretty much a fun way to keep track of one's tenure here at Brainformation. We would need a majority of members to vote on changing the titles, but it is possible to do so. If you wish not to participate or object to the default ranks, let me know. I'll assign you the permanent title of "Registered Member"

I wonder if we could add "Sandman" as a ranking. Maybe for hitting 3000

I too was thinking that the gaps between ranks might be adjusted. Sandman would fit the theme, but we will need more than one vote to make a change. :D

I think that Yogi should send us coasters when we hit 1000.

Well, I think the rankings are brilliant (and novel and funny as well). I'm not too up on my Metallica song titles and would never have known that's where they came from. What I think is really good is that no other site I've ever been on has such a system (if they have any system at all - it's usually silly shiny stars, which seems very kindergardenish to me).

Like all ratings it does rather discriminate against shy, sensitive posters such as Moi! :woot2:
Absolutely brilliant - me - helpless :biggrin:
