Post-based Rank Colours
« on: May 22, 2020, 12:18 pm »
Hi all, post-based rank colours are here. This works similarly to how it would on Discord (where your name colour changes depending on your level), except it's based on post count. This was Awesomefinnz's idea, and I passed it through the other Generals and they were happy with it.

Here are a list of the ranks and their colours (as well as how many posts you need for them):

0 - 1,000 posts (no special colour)
1,000 posts (Launcher)
2,000 posts (Mortar)
5,000 posts (Disruptor)
10,000 posts (Heavy Cruiser)
15,000 posts (Centipede)
20,000 posts (Electropede)
25,000 posts (Bugmeister)
30,000 posts (Centipede)

I assigned these colours pretty quickly, so feel free to suggest any changes. Mogura always had a special red colour, so I kept that the same.
Soldier is now a secondary membergroup (since anyone can get it, it's nothing special now), so that has no display colour anymore, in favour of this new system.

Hope this is a welcomed change.

Will change Heavy Cruiser's colour shortly (too similar to Lieutenant in my opinion), as well as some others that I don't like.

Don't forget; you will eventually lose that color when you get to the next rank, "Heavy Cruiser".

...Assuming you don't stop posting before you get to 10,000 posts. *takes out Bohobe gun* You better not stop posting; especially not for some color.

That's what Bohobes look like.

So I should be cyan instead of green? I'm a Mainsite Employee so am I still green or do I become cyan? So basically does it work only on privates or even on MSOE, soldiers+?

Still waiting for Heavy Cruiser, the name seems cool.

I see it works only for privates. You should also remove color for MSOEs I think

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............................................................

I think it only works on Privates and Soldiers. So, you'll still have your MSOE color. However, we can make it so MSOE isn't your primary group, but rather an extra, which would then allow you to have these colors. The only downside is that you would no longer be shown off as a MSOE.

Okay... *puts Bohobe gun away*

MSOEs are more special than Soldiers, since there are less than them and they have power.

Soldier is just a rank that allows you to gain access to some more boards which contain less strict rules.

As such, I think MSOE should keep their color.

That's what Bohobes look like.

Rocky, I've set your MSOE rank as a secondary rank. I don't want to remove the MSOE colour because of what Bolsillos said. If you change your mind about this, let me know and I'll change it back.

Oof.

It turned out Rocky didn't want to lose MSOE being displayed for him.

I think we should just get rid of post ranks altogether. It’s not like they mean anything anyway. Especially considering most of the posts from certain people are gone anyways.

I fail to see how they no longer mean anything.

While it's true that after the backup a lot of people's posts were lost (all of mine were), that doesn't mean the post ranks are meaningless; they're an "award" to people who stay active here. Also, the fact of the matter is, just because there's less than a year left, doesn't mean we should give up; we've already been over this numerous times.

That's what Bohobes look like.

Terrible Idea. Post Ranks are one of the best things to exist for privates. There's no point slowly erasing everything

There is no need to remove post ranks. Also, we have accounted for the fact that a lot of people have lost a lot (or all) of their post count, and that is why you only need 1,000 posts for a post rank colour.
