    I'd say develope something original. Stick around for awhile and earn the status as a developer. You don't need the tag to develope. But you have to develop in order to earn the tag

    Yeah I read that. That would be awesome if you could fix the issues we have with oc. But I would pm shinru about the oc kernel as he developed it for the warp. But I believe the issues with wifi and Bluetooth are unfixable w/o zte releasing the full source code. Ask shin to be sure that's accurate

    Okay, I moved some of these posts out of a different thread while dealing with another issue.

    Just an FYI, we do not discuss moderator actions with other members or in the open forums. We expect members not to do this either. If you have questions feel free to post in the Private Chat with Staff section, or send us a PM. We will not answer questions about other members, but we may be able to give some clarifications about other things there without cluttering the open forums with this stuff.

    oh where, oh where do I start. lol

    Since this subject got brought up lol, and since there have been alot of self proclaimed 'devs' pop up lately, I will post my opinion of what a dev is and how one would earn the title Developer. This isnt in any way a representation of how AF feels or requires for the Recognized Developer title, but my opinion on the subject.

    A dev, creates stuff, be it stuff he creates from scratch, or redoes something already made. A dev is more than just a themer (will touch on that more in a minute) or modder. Dev is able to compile from source in most cases, able to at least dig thru code, understand what he/she is editing and what it does. Many of you consider me a Dev and actual real developers may not, I didnt proclaim myself as a dev, my peers, friends, and fans did. ;) Developers can do what I do plus more, and usually in other areas as well.

    now in the Dev circles, many dont consider themers to be developers, but some others do, especially the themers that put in the time n effort to do it right, make sure it all works and looks as it should. We all seen the themers that can be seen as devs, the blow our minds with how they improve a ROMs appearance. Some ROM cookers put the same amount of time n effort into their work.

    But what a Dev is not, you just dont decide or proclaim you are a dev, you have to obtain the knowledge to earn that title, you have to show you have the skills, be able to show work you have done. In most cases people should be able to google a dev name and find all sorts of things they have done, not like these johnny come latelys that have been popping up claiming they have this n that and are going to do this and that, yet you google them and all you find is where they stalk people on friendster, or the ps3 gamer profile, etc, etc.

    in summary, a Developer earns the title from educating themselves and creating new n better things!!! One just doesnt and shouldnt be allowed to self-proclaim themselves as a developer. ;)

    Very well put.

    I think that deserves its own thread in the Rom Dev section or something

    well put playfulgod, thanks Mods for cleaning up this discussion!

    I have wondered for a while what the different levels are and have come up with some of my own conclusions:

    ordinary automated designations (based on posts and possibly other things like thanks/thanked):

    new member: just joined
    junior member: under a certain number of posts (100?)
    member: under 500
    senior member

    special designations (I think these only get bestowed on people by mods):

    guide: designation for vetted members or senior members who have shown the right attitude, good advice and who have been helpful to threads as determined by a MOD
    ROM Developer: someone who is a proven dev, has contributed their own coding and come up with a popular ROM as determined by their ROM's thread and community and ultimately a MOD

    Just taking a stab at this after being around the forum for a couple years.

    to clarify
    new member 0 - 25 posts (i think)
    junior member 26 - 49
    member 50 - 499
    Senior member 500 - 9,999
    AF addict 10,000+

    All user groups are determined/awarded by the Admin btw
    (but users need to be *qualified*)
