Help with the Ranks

Post by Soulmonster on Mon Apr 18, 2011 5:23 am

I realize that I should do more with the Ranks people get as they post and that correspond to the number of posts they have. Today it is like this:

Groupie for the Nelson Brothers - 0
Groupie for a slightly cool band -5
Groupie for just about any artist you fancy - 10
Tour bus driver - 15
Drum techician - 20
Guitar technician - 25
Tour plane captain - 30
Front of house engineer - 200
Monitor engineer - 500
Band manager - 5000
Superstar! - 10000

The idea was to make the related to a tour band with all the different positions and jobs. But I only did it halfway and would like help to make it better. Any suggestions?

I have started designing rank images now. I believe every member has got one.

I will reduce the rank images to about 75 % their size. I think that will be better.

Maybe nicer to make them in line with the avatar borders?

Yes, absolutely. I don't know if that is possible though since the avatar size is not fixed. I will think about it.

Hmmm, then it's only useful if you fix the avatar size and make the board resize every avatar, otherwise it's annoying if you want to pick an avatar but it's too big.

Yes, I agree. Let me try to shrink the rank images first and see if it looks better then.

I think it looks better with smaller rank badges

A new rank has been added: Towel Boy! In the hierarchy of a touring rock band the towel boy finds itself fairly much at the bottom. This means that a lot of you maggots now has this rank. I have basically wedged it in between some groupie ranks, methinks.
