User ranks, Stars...

Recommended Posts

I have read few times in the last days people asking what the stars were there for. The answer is simple: they mean nothing!

Your ideas are welcomed! Also, we could improve our User rank system. HW is getting bigger and our previous ranking system might need a fix, or maybe, we can add more ranks after our current ones.

This is our current system:

<table border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2" width="100%"> <!--Begin Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">HWL Office</td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /></td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">-1 </td></tr><!-- End Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><!--Begin Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Midget AAA</td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /></td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">1 </td></tr><!-- End Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><!--Begin Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">CHL</td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /></td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">50 </td></tr><!-- End Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><!--Begin Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">GRETZKY !!!!!</td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /></td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">99 </td></tr><!-- End Template: faq_misc_rankrow--><!--Begin Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">AHL</td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /></td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">100 </td></tr><!-- End Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><!--Begin Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">NHL</td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /></td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">250 </td></tr><!-- End Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><!--Begin Template: faq_misc_rankrow --><tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Hall of Fame</td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><img src="./images/xpsilver/star.gif" /></td><td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">1000 </td></tr><!-- End Template: faq_misc_rankrow --></table>

It makes no sense to go from NHL to Hall of Fame and go from 2 to 1 star in the process..

And no, this board doesn't let us put stars according to the number of years since the member has registered. Stars have to be associated with Ranks, and ranks are either manually given to members or linked to posts numbers.

If you have ideas to improve the rankings system, go ahead!

The meaning of it is to make HW a more friendly place. One of HW's 4 rules is "Quality. No post padding! (Quality before Quantity)." We don't want to encourage post padding, but we do want to recognize the members who are making of HW the #1 "World Wide Fans Community". If you don't believe me, check by yourself on google :P Btw, just for fun... And 2nd in google for "Fans Community" behind Harry Potte's website.. hehe

No star for midget AAA - half a star for CHL - one star for AHL and two for NHL ?

I'm guessing Hall of Fame gets more than NHL and Staff/HWL gets more than Hall of Fame.

That's my idea.

I talked to the honourable FOZZY BEAR about this issue and after considerable cogitation on the condition of these cosmic counters he came up with this idea.

Everybody gets one star and I get one...... hundred orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

apply stars to members according to their age. Soooooooooooooooo, I get 55 (56 in January, hehehehe....)

:D:D:D

I was a star in the 50's! Does this get me an extra star, walk of fame imprint, a cup of Columbian coffee? :)

Are the number of stars real important to the board, as i never noticed until this thread that HOF went to 1 star. Sometimes me peepers not seeing things properly any longer.

Maybe the star system should work on number of posts.

One star for each 500 posts?

:ghg:

I thought that it might be better if we make it one star for every 3618 posts. Seems fair to me. :D

Just because someone posts a lot (like me) doesn't mean they know what they're saying. The stars should be given out by admins. Hah, this feels like nursery school; earning gold stars and having them taken away.:)

as a junior & senior kindergarten teacher, i see the great value in giving the stars :clap: ...

i would NEVER take the stars away. a star earned is a star kept :D . for those who are making wrong decisions :monkey: , on this site, i would have you take a time-out at your designated chair :puke: . after a bit, we'd talk about making good choices. :king:

In all honesty, that's pretty weak.

I'd suggest a 5 star system (if possible)

Super Admins and Mods - 5

1000 - 4

500 - 3

100 - 2

n00b OMG! - 1

Why does it matter how many stars people have anyway? They're just decorations. But if you're going to start a system, it might as well be something similar to what Trizzak said above.

It all looks great!

Though I suppose "Post Whore" wouldn't be an option for everyone over 2000? :P

I like the concept Sakiqc proposed.

I think I would be an NHL Stanley Cup or NHL Year Book Cover if I had all my posts back ;)
