    We're having a vote on the user-rankings! (the little 'title' below your name when you make a post)

    The admins have shown an interest to changing the rank-names, so let's tell then what we want !!

    [SET 1]
    1. Newbie
    2. Scout
    3. Regular
    4. Addict
    5. Resident
    6. Veteran
    7. Master

    [SET 2]
    1. Applesauce
    2. Butterscotch
    3. Cupcake
    4. Donut
    5. Eclair
    6. Froyo
    7. Gingerbread


    Apology:
    We were collecting suggestions here and I promised to hold the vote last month. Sorry about my tardiness, but work came up and so did Easter ...

    -chronodekar

    PS: The vote will run for a month starting from today.

    I liked the original user ranks before the change. Could you please add that to the poll?

    I really DO want to add this in now, but I can't seem to edit the poll. Also, do you remember what the 7 ranks were? Considering that it's hardly been 3 days, I suppose, we could restart the poll.. :rolleyes: (and this thread)

    Its funny, but I did a spreadsheet of the dates and names of the OS's, and I could not find any reference to the first two, so I came up with the names. Funny how you chose the same Applesauce for the first OS. lol

    For my second OS I chose Biscotti instead of Butterscotch.

    Anyway, if you know what the original user ranks are, I can edit the poll for you and add them.

    TS out

    FYI- Phases finally took a step in the right direction and reverted the user ranks/ titles to the original vBulletin defaults:
    New Member
    Junior Member
    Member
    Senior Member
    (I think that's all...)

    Not to imply one of these suggestions or whatever won't do. Can still change it again, was just tired of waiting.

    Same here. Can the OP add these new current ones to the poll?

    The first set is a lot simpler and is easier to understand.

    It's better for newcomers or even those who have never been on a forum before!

    I choose that one.

    i think only having four or five over simplifies it. be better if there were a few more to better distinquish. Also maybe have them also change over time instead of posts

    I think that's a bad idea. We need to encourage people to post more to keep this forum active. That's one of the main reasons why we have ranking systems in the first place.

    I could change it, but considering that the voting has been going on for quite some time now, that would be cheating those who already voted.

    I want to mention this change, but I want to do it fairly too, just don't know how. :(

    I'd personally like to do away with the whole post count and user title module.
