Plectra, ranks and reputations

Post by Soulmonster on Mon Apr 18, 2011 11:51 pm

Rank: This is a title that corresponds directly to the number of posts you have on the forum. There is no way to modify this number. The ranks (the rock n' roll concert positions exemplified with a badge) are based on your post rating. When you reach a certain number of posts you will automatically get a new rank. The ranks start out with quite demeaning positions but get better and better as you get more and more posts.

Here's an example of a rank badge:



Plectra: The number of plectra is calculated from adding together plectra received from getting profile messages, how many friends one has, how long one has been a member, how high reputation one has, and for starting and posting in threads on the forum (posting in some sections give more plectra than in others). The admin may also grant or remove plectra from people. The plectra will be our currency for buying stuff in the Plectra Shop.

Reputation: The reputation comes from people voting on your posts, the more people like a post the higher your reputation. This is in other words a measure of your standing among your peers. Each positive vote gives you 1 reputation point, each negative vote subtracts one reputation point, each "Thanks!" gives you 3 reputation points.

Are you interested in a "plectrum shop" where the plectra you have received can be traded in for stuff? Stuff could be special images attached to the profile, more stash in the signature, and even access to the VIP area?

That was my intention, but I misspelled the word Doh!.

Originally what you get for posting and starting threads and just doing lots of good things here on the forum is called "points", but I decided to call it something more relevant to our topic, so I decided to call it "plectra" (plural of plectrum), but spelled it wrong!

Anyway, the idea is that these plectra/points/tokens or whatever we decide to call them can be traded in for some advantages here on the forum. This could be larger signatures, VIP membership, etc. I guess some people would like this idea.

Yes, actually, that is a good idea Smile.

Something like this:

50 plectra: Buy a new username
500 plectra: Buy a custom rank (A little field to type in the rank they want, the rank can added to the ACP)
500 plectra: Buy a blog on AFD
500 plectra: Buy a coloured name
1000 plectra: Buy VIP status and get access to the VIP area
2000 plectra: Buy a new subforum of their own choice
5000 plectra: Buy a new widget
100000 plectra: Buy free beer in Trondheim
