My Dying Bride Forum

Take from me the crown of sympathy...

Levels?

Remarks, suggestions for improvements and questions about the web forum.

Is there any scale for the sub-nicknames given after a certain number of posts? If yes, is it possible to know it ? Cheers.

Sure. There are currently four levels: Newbie (0 posts), Regular Doomster (20 posts), Fulltime Doomster (100 posts), Doom Metal Furniture (500 posts).

To be honest I have not given these ranks much thought. If anyone has a good suggestions for a different set of ranks (based on number of posts) they're welcome to share it here.

Alright. So basically, if the last one was "Doom Metal Furniture" granted for 500 posts, the next one should be granted for 1000 posts. Regarding the title, as I already said to Piece of Art in PM, I have absolutely no idea... I just thought these "titles" already existed... Maybe could you be inspired by the old titles of the former forum?

Regards.

"inspired" is the nice way of putting it. The more realistic way of putting it is that I simply stole them :)

As for at what number of posts you get a new ranking, that is completely configurable, so if you want a new level at 1, 2, 6, 42, 501, 502, ... to 1000000 then that is possible. Of course I am not going to create a ranking system with more than say, 10 ranks, because it would be too much work. I'm lazy.

i liked that... "Doombringer" rank on the old forum... sounded so doomy... :lol: and actually it was hard to get....


I care about "ranks", Aylin. Thats why I also asked the question... I care about them because they were funny, imo. Everyone already knows that this is certainly not the number of posts which make a good doomster!

I personally like the "Gloomy Doomster" rank.

I've made a few updates to the ranking system, including a couple of new ranks (you'll have to find out what they are as you go along) and I've also added some graphics to go with each rank.

Hey! Great idea! Instead of Doom Guru, we should have had "Doom Bringer" or smg like that and then "Godfather of Doom" indeed.
