Thread: Member Titles and Ranks
If you have all of them Bronze or Higher, you get 'Warrior', then Silver - 'Rohirrim', Gold - 'Captain', Mithril - 'The Fellowship' (Like in my Avatar) and then for Silmarill - 'King' or something.
We could also have a allegiance thing somewhere, (Good, Neutral, Evil) which affects it. (Nazgúl not Fellowship, Warg instead of Rohirrim, Etc)
Also, if there is any contests like Fan-Fic contests or stuff, we get Badge things like 'Lore-Geek' for a contest or researching who some guy who has only been mentioned once's nan is. (Which is actually easy, half of the Return of the King is just Family Trees)
Sorry if this doesn't make anysense.
And we could make our own signatures to sign posts with that state where our allegiance lies and so on. Lots of creative minds here, lets toss this idea around !
I have been a member in one forum where people were allowed to have signatures. I never went there more than once. That was annoying as sometimes the signature took more space than the actual post!!!
The signatures were restricted to max two lines of plain text, no images or smilies.
The posting ranks had stars and some text, and there was always someone who would post a lot of short and useless posts like "I agree" or just a smiley to boost their ranks. (Which is the reason we had to add a rule about no single line posts or single smiley posts...)
Aaaanyhow.... Tarrant is re-writing this site so that it will be easier to add new things. So keep posting your ideas and thoughts! You never know what might suddenly become reality.
Cheesy I really like this new avatar you have!
Taz, is there any chance that we can have anoption to see on what date we joined PT?
On the subject of titles and ranks can anyone tell me what these levels mean? I seem to be a level 1. I hope its not some sort of game where you go up levels by killing orcs or whatever. I really have better things to do.
I would also very much like to see something that would allow us to show our date of joining PT. I know you have worked very hard, Taz. And I commend you on what you've done. But is such a thing possible?
We have no idea what the Levels are about yet, time will tell.
Using my mad CM skillz *cough* I see that:
Gandalf-olorin, you signed up 2005-02-26
Thorin Oakenshield: 2006-05-14
Hopefully this could be added to a profile page or something in the future.
Thanks, Amarie. It's good to know when I became a member of the family.
Great Info! Thanks!!
Actually though, Thorin Oakenshield is the second account I created here. I discovered PT in November or early December 2005 at an IT show where they had free internet access for visitors ( I did not have net at home at that time). I created an account under the name of finrod or something like that. The funny thing is that I still have the password written down but not the user name. I though I would not remember the password but it turned out to be the other way round!
A couple of months later when I got net at home, Thorin was born
