Post Forum Ranking system
I'm considering the following ranking system:
http://wiki.castlecops.com/CastleCops_Forum_Ranks

Image Cadet 0
Image Cadet 5
Image Trooper 10
Image Trooper 15
Image Trooper 20
Image Trooper 25
Image Private 30
Image Corporal 45
Image Sergeant 60
Image Lieutenant 75
Image Captain 100
Image Major 150
Image Colonel 200
Image General 300

What do you think?

The ranking system gives you a title and an icon next to your name based on the number of posts that you've contributed. It serves as a quick way to assess the standing of the person who replies to you. Doesn't mean that much, I will probably give a user who's posted 25 times more credibility than a user who's only posted once.

Didn't need a mod for this one. Simply upload the images to your default images directory (Set in the admin page), and set up "ranks", also in the admin page. It's all built in.

I noticed the current ranking system has been tweaked a bit from the first post. Maybe somebody can update the chart?

Are we going to war with the other SCADA systems? Looks like a good starting point. Based on my experience with other forums, you'll probably have to adjust or you'll end up with too many Generals in the ranks. Or just add stars to the generals with doubling the number of posts each time until you reach 5 stars (300, 600, 1200, 2400, 4800).

Yeah, especially since right now it looks like the ranks aren't quite set up correctly. I went to look at how many Generals we currently have (not counting IA people), and found 12... but only 6 have more than 300 posts.

Looks like the ranks are currently at Major-100, Colonel-125, Major-150. So... should we add new, multi-star Major levels, or should I adjust them and demote some people? :lol:

Oh, and going to war with other SCADA systems? Maybe... but the less exciting explanation is that the guy who came up with it was headed off to the Navy and probably had Ranks on the mind... :)

Good thing he didn't use navy ranks, nobody understands those.


I like the doubling of posts to get another star. Of course that means I'll have to post a whole bunch of trivial posts just to be the first one to get a second star :twisted:

It seems a bit on the low side to me... Most forums' top contributers are way up there. Maybe something like:
Image Cadet 0
Image Cadet 15
Image Trooper 30
Image Trooper 45
Image Trooper 60
Image Trooper 75
Image Private 100
Image Corporal 200
Image Sergeant 300
Image Lieutenant 500
Image Captain 750
Image Major 1000
Image Colonel 1500
Image General 2000
