Jeremy, I think the new rankings are pretty cool but I noticed Lefox is not 5 star (as in member with highest post count). Does someone have higher than him? Only drawback I can see is the potential for post whores. Everybody here has legitimate postings but I could see that possibly changing for some just to get to that next rank. Like in the army, can someone be demoted:p?

We just got that system up last night. We are working on the five star part. There will only be one five star general. The next phase is to allow users to vote with a thumbs up or thumbs down on the quality of posts. That will subtract or add to the metric that determines rankings. I will also be moderating and promoting moderators, so spammy or crap posts will be pruned and won't count.

Good deal[up]

On a side note, are you going to Homecoming?

Yeah, I finally figured out how to set moderators. BuellPartsGuy and LeFox have the highest level of moderator authority. You can edit, delete and move posts for any forum topic.

I think you should be the five star general, buellxb. After all, you do run the show around here.

Yeah, I will tweak the amount of posts soon, but once I've dialed it in it won't change.

This forum is for all of us and it takes all of us to make it tick. I'm not the five star guy unless I earn it from providing valuable feedback to other members.

I still have a lot of polishing to do. I set mods, added the YouTube functionality and the rankings. I need to perfect them, then I will start working on the PM system.

Wow, I haven't been a second lieutenant in a while...

Seriously, though, BuellXB, nice job.

Thanks for all the feedback. As some of you may have noticed, I created a new forum section for technical issues. Suggestions, feedback and constructive criticism are welcome and will help me keep improving things. ;)[up]
