True story: Was reading a current comic in which a mutant (who is in jail) gets a prison tattoo.

It was "the symbol".

I screamed in shock.

Like a little girl.

Hey, I have a suggestion about the rank system. You know how the admins have 5 symbols that are red, and the moderators have four symbols that are blue, what if as you got another symbol, the color changed?

I for one think if you do choose to do this, the first symbol should stay white.

Another idea, what if you didn't get your first symbol until 100 posts?

Well I was going to change it so that you don't get it till you get 50 posts at least, but it depends what we'd do for the symbols. As for the color changing, I'd honestly rather not, seeing as there's set colors for the Staff Members and I wouldn't want to cause a mass confusion over that in case people mistook a color for something important. I think colored names are enough for you all, eh? Razz

On the old rank system we had,I remember that when you got 100, 200, and 300 posts you got a symbol. I forgot what the first one was, but the second was "Stalked" (I think) and the last one was the rank called "Slendervet", such as a veteran of SN. We added more when we realized we'd get more traffic on here than the proboards site, but we didn't bother to keep adding another symbol for each rank, as it would seem to be excessive in a way and wouldn't exactly leave room for us. Unless we make the new cutoff at 8 symbols instead of 3 for you all or figure something else out, then I'm not sure what we'll do.

I like the cutoff at 3. It just feels right. I think anymore would be overkill, not to mention wholly unnecessary, but thats just my opinion, I don't know if anyone else feels the same.

Yeah, don't do more symbols than 3 for normal members. And now that you point it out, I could definitely see how the colored symbols would make things confusing.

I'm with guitargodd97. Don't change the color with rank, especially if the color is different from the other logos in the set - it looks a little weird having a whole rainbow of Operator symbols.

I was going to suggest using different Slendervers symbols for Mods and Admins, but then I realized most of those are 1) specific to those blogs and vlogs and 2) could annoy the vlog/blog authors if they were used outside of those stories, since they own the rights to those symbols as the authors. Not sure on the Operator symbol since it was based more or less on the tensor product symbol, which is fair use...

Old a little, I know (the thread) but no dude no! The operator symbols are perfect! Very Happy It's the core sign for Slenderman! Bunch of meanings too! They're awesome and you all did an awesome job on planning this!

I like the TT and DH symbols a lot personally, but I agree that they're very vlog-specific.

Maybe they should change depending on what part of the site you're on?

That would take a hell of a lot of work for the staff to actually implement those changes, and would probably not be worth the effort.

That can't be done anyway. Rank is directly tied to post count with how forumotion is set up. The best we can do is change when you rank up and change th images used with the Rank system.

Huh. I would think, being a phpBB architecture, that you could do something different with it.

Oh well. No worries anyway.
