For instance me!

I've been on the boards as early as may 2003, yet under my icon it says "NOVICE MEMBER", sure i don't post on every friggin' meaningless whine post that pops on the forums to climb up on "posts"

Time spent on the forums should mean something, instead of spamming on every post that pops on the main site.

I've mainly posted on stuff i thought would mean something or give constructive comments on matters.

 

I personally feel wronged, when i'm considered  a "novice user" even tho i've been playing MMORPG's for almost 2 decades (which is half more than most people on the boards have been ALIVE), thus i consider that being a mark of something more than just a "novice"

 

2coppers at ya. please troll and flame me if i'm thinking outta my buttcrack. ( if a kid comes at me on the streets, i just tell em how things are and they usually let it be, if they don't, they'll know what they bargained for.)

    I bet he is sittting there right now like "WTF this was not as gratifying I expect it to be...it seems it really is just a title after all.". I personally do not give a rats ass about titles and shit. It is about the content of your post. If someone want the title king of the forums he can have it for all I care. His post will not change regardless.

    I do find it odd though that someone believe his title on a forum should change because has been playing MMO's for over 2 decades. You know as well as I do that your skills only increase while using the skill, clearly you have not used the forum skill long enough to be more then a novice user in the use of forums.

    you can go from elite to novice in month of absence from this site, yet it takes over a year to get back to elite with daily activity on site..

    ranking here always been a joke, i used to have that 5 stars rating back in the days, then ijust stoped using site for a while, went i came back i was zero and cant get back to previous title even with viewing website daily, and as far as i know it wasnt ( dunno if now it is ) about post size, it was aboug being on website loged, you could had 1 post and 5 star title

    probably changed by now, since im sitting on 3 stars yet using website daily for what been eternity

    Is there like a "Super Lurker" title for the many folks in my situation =)

  • Lazarus71Lazarus71 Member UncommonPosts: 1,081

    Well I have always felt that haveing been a member and loyaling coming to this site for many years should have some recognition. The ranking system has always seemed a bit off, some of us are just more lurkers than posters. Usually any thoughts I have are put in to text by some one else better than I ever could. Call it being lazy or afraid to post, I just call it being me.   :)

    RYL beta was what got me interested in this website, at the time MMORPG was the only site I knew of that offered such a large collection of online games I've never heard of.

    Because of MMORPG I went on to win a contest where Planet Wide Games asked players to design cover art. Scored a free life-time sub and my first mp3 player. Managed to win with only 5 months of Photoshop under my metaphorical belt. Honestly I thought the one I submitted sucked, but everyone else seemed to think otherwise.

    Yet for being a "Founder" I never got that free hat that was supposed to be give out to all founder players.

     

    *Ahem* I blame MMORPG for everything.

  • xm522xm522 Member UncommonPosts: 117

    ^ your percentage breakdown makes no sense :)

    on topic: the system is obviously flawed. but because this site manages such an extensive comunity, it is not an 'out of the question' method.

    i understand that people want gratification, it's cool and all. but if you demand "rewards" for time visiting this site, many others will. and those who lurked and later made an account, will feel cheated.

    just my 2 cents

  • GorillaGorilla Member UncommonPosts: 2,234

    I was surprised to find that I joined in 04 as well. It seems like only yesterday that I decided fidning somewhere to hang out game to game would be a good idea. Still, I had been playing online games a long time before then. Since the very first multiplayer online game actually (Trubshaw and Bartles orignal MUD).

    At one time I submitted newsworthy 'finds' in the vain (ahh vanity) hope of a title but being old and senile I was never quick enough. If they are up for grabs though ;) ............
