Coming Soon: New Posting Levels
« on: March 16, 2009, 12:16:10 AM »
I almost hesitate to post this because I don't want to make a big deal out of something that means so little....

Just a heads up that we've redone the posting levels for the forum -- you know, the stuff that appears beneath your name to the left, like "Stranger in a Strange Land" when you first join, etc. The new levels are quite different and more extensive than what we have now, and should last us a good, long time. (The existing levels were created before we knew how popular the new forum would be!)

Your post count won't change, of course, but most everyone will end up with a new level -- some of you will have new levels you've never seen before, others will see levels you thought you had passed before. :)

I'm leaning towards not publishing the new list of levels because we don't want people to focus on trying to reach the next level up and posting garbage just to up their post count.

But even if you never see the new list, at least you know it's coming. We'll probably put it in the system sometime this week.

Nice! Thanks m2. The Levels are very low.

Good Idea about not posting the list. We don't want a sudden increase in spam threads.

Wow, I stay up too late tonight, and I get to see the new statuses touch down!  I don't know if I should be concerned over the fact that I'm this excited about that, but . . .   :D

Wow, you're quick. Was wondering how long it would take for someone to notice.

Everything's installed. I suppose it's silly of me to hope people don't make a big deal out of it, right? :)

MW saw it first, and told me at Boom Cha!'s.  I think he has the official title of first noticer.  Yours is the best, Matt.  Alas, though, I will never get my wings.  I had them all picked out and everything.  But hey, my status matches my name, so I'm not complaining!

I knew you'd go looking for this.  We forum junkies . . . we're all the same.  :D

Of course it is silly of you Matt!! ;D ;D ;D  This lovable bunch are obsessed with the levels! People are constantly watching and pm'ing me when mine changes. I suppose with all my posts, I am the Christopher Columbus of the forum.  The new titles will be discovered as I reach them for the first time LOL!! ;D ;D ;D Whatever you do, keep the levels a secret until they get there. That will help your headache! Love that name. It is funny that I am" up with the sun " because in reality I am always the last to log off at ungodly hours of the night!  I'd like to think that the meaning of that one is that I am a mysterious &  beautiful celestial being up there in the U2 forum universe! ;)

That is definitely the case, SG!  I was up WAYYYYY too late with my Australian penpal last night, so I hardly got up with the sun either.  More like I was still up for the sun.  Well, not quite, but MW has instructions to kick me off if I'm playing above/middle/below with him after 12:30. This place is crazy, and I love it.

But that will ruin the fun of discovering the new levels.
