View Full Version : Ranks

FIRST THINGS FIRST! This isn't a 'What are the ranks' thread... this is a 'What other ranks should the admins ad?' thread.

Yeah, I was talking to Metallus, and he said the 'Freelancer' rank is until like 10000 posts.... which is quite strange. I think we should make up more to 'suggest' they use.

I like lagomorph... that'd be a good one ;)

Careful what you wish for. Well, okay - at least wear protective wishing gear.

mine have holes

I basically set it up like iisaac's old board (everyone but admins are "freelancers") but I added the new Newbie-Hazing feature (people up to 40 or so posts are goons or unsavory goons or annying jerks or something). So, as it stands now, you're a Freelancer until you prove otherwise.

01-06-2002, 12:29 AM
how do you prove otherwise?

Dodge this punch to the kidneys!


You lose.

01-06-2002, 12:36 AM
No fair!

I say that once someone reaches a set amount of posts, about 1000 or so, maybe more, they're given the choice to select their subtitle. Think of it as a reward for being a consistent contributor to the forum, a symbol of being OG, whatever. It strikes me as a good idea, though. The Gamespy forums use that. I like that.

01-06-2002, 12:42 AM
Yep, that's the default. Custom title is achievable at 1000 posts.

01-06-2002, 12:43 AM
... and also you should give me one, because i'm such a cool guy.

*Kidney punch*

Quit leaving yourself open.

01-06-2002, 12:52 AM
DAMMIT, I don't even have a kidney!

01-06-2002, 01:20 AM
Sucks to be you.

01-06-2002, 04:26 AM
A thousand?!

Time to punch sheaday6 in the section of his body formerly known as his kidneys.

01-06-2002, 05:31 AM
That sort of sucks... quality over quantity, right?

But then, I guess I don't really need a custom title. I like it when the others think I'm also a newbie.

01-06-2002, 11:03 AM
... which lures them into a false sense of security, and thats when he STRIKES!

*kidney punch*

01-06-2002, 11:15 AM
DAMMIT, take kinesiology class! The spleen is here! *points to spleen area* And you've been hitting MY ELBOW! *points to elbow*

01-06-2002, 11:34 AM
*Grabs elbow and shoves it into kidneys*

Stop hitting yourself.

01-06-2002, 11:42 AM
*kidney punch*

Nope, kidney.

01-06-2002, 05:58 PM

*punches self in the kidney with spleen*

I was stabbed in my spleen in september. No joke. I know EXACTLY where it is.

I remember that. You gave us a great scare Andrew. Good that you're alright now.

*pokes AndrewL's scar with his fist*
