Member title/rank with new point system.

submitted on September 9, 2009 by jack69darin in "Member's Lounge"
Just curious why the point requirements for memeber title/rank did not increase when the new increased point system was implemented?

    I also had asked this question earlier.

    Now all of us are going to be professors in no time Mr Green

    We need reform in the ranking system Wink

    Gotta be honest... I was a little excited when I hit 2000 lifetime points because it took soooooo long to get there and the other ranks that came with each increment of note.

    However, now, here I am about to break 3000 lifetime points in almost no time at all, and relatively new members are climbing those ranks at even faster lighting speeds with the new point system.

    I agree that some kind of control measure or adjustment is needed, especially for those of us who were very patient... I know, I know, we are a picky lot aren't we?

    Granted they are really just honorary titles, but some of us probably feel like we earned those badges, and now they kinda seem like the trivial prize gotten out of a Cracker Jack box.

    We are still tuning up the contests. The points may slightly change next month. We consider lowering the points from deal votes a little bit to give the comment/topic vote points greater relative weight.

    We have some ideas for ranks too. The ranks will certainly change to reflect the "inflation" but most importantly we will be giving away badges for the top 3 spots in the monthly contests (and possibly other achievements).

    As usual, feel free to drop a note if you have ideas on how to make this game more fun! Smile

    All ranks are now adjusted for inflation: old 50 is new 500, etc

    As it turns out we have one teacher and 5 experts Smile

    I will now work on adding the badges I mentioned earlier

      I see that you adjusted the ranks , should you not adjust the OLD POINTS which we earned ( slogged ) at par?

      100 points earned earlier (before reform) should also have more value. Someone who joined this month probably has the same points as me.

      This would be technically very hard to do and I hope this is really not a huge problem. We have many more interesting ideas that we would rather spend our time on (than fixing points)

    I certainly can't complain, and it resolves that whole needing a new tittle problem. Big Grin

    WOW

    ----
    For Quick reference

    Title is assigned based on the memeber current score:
    99 or less learner
    100 - 499 beginner
    500 - 999 novice
    1000 - 1499 apprentice
    1500 - 1999 journeyman
    2000 - 2999 expert
    3000 - 4999 teacher
    5000 - 9999 master
    10000 or more professor
    Rank is the total points accumulated over the account life time
