    Custom Rank Names

    Post by Rhosauce on Mon Dec 13, 2010 4:34 am

    Some of you have asked for custom rank names. While Eph and I always enjoy customizing shiz specifically to your tastes, we have - for now - decided against custom ranks for everyone.

    This is because:
    a) Some of the ones you'd like contain too much profanity or vulgarity. Yes, it's okay to swear on the forums (as long as you don't overdo it) and to be vulgar but the rank names appear absolutely everywhere you post and as the community grows, we want to make sure we discomfort/offend as few people as possible.
    b) We haven't found the motivation to get around to it because
    c) We were hoping custom rank names would be one of the ways we would "reward" the more active and enthusiastic mobsters. If you create many threads, keep others alive, join us gaming, in movies, contribute suggestions, etc, then you'd earn a custom rank name for sure.

    Now, as I said in the other thread, this is all just preliminary decision-making. Eph and I are still open to discussing it with you guys and we definitely want to know your thoughts.

    Of course, we know that there are a number of you who have done a hell of a lot for the Mob already so I think it's about time your mommy and daddy talk about it again. I'll bring it up when he stops drooling on his pillow.

    as much as my twisted mind would love to spew out some garbage this fine early morning, its just too early for it to even work

    so if it ever comes down to giving out customs i would only ask for a simple reference to fire or better yet pyromaniac relate Catface

    Mine isn't an ego thing. I just like the idea that we are eternally bound to an animal spirit.

    But seriously - stay on topic plox.

    Hey! I was on topic! I wanted to know what yours were to see if we could stick with a theme.

    So methinks maybe a Celtic Mythology theme? Yay? Nay?

    Either way, mesays yes to custom rank names.

    EDIT: BAH, Nahual isn't Celtic. Then general mythology names that people earn by helping the Mob.

    Bah, double post.

    IF Exxy or I ever reach the point where we get custom ranks:
    Me - Mnemosyne, Greek goddess of memory and remembrance and mother of the nine Muses.
    Exxy - Odin, Norse god and ruler of Asgard. Also associated with wisdom, war, battle, death, magic, poetry, prophecy, victory and the hunt

    I say yes to the names, but I have no idea what mines could be so that complicates things.

    Guys, this thread isn't about mythological dieties - it's for discussing whether or not to give custom ranks to everyone.

    We also haven't even come close to deciding whether they will be themed.

    Red - why not start a mythology thread and who would suit which diety best for kicks?

    Please stick to the topic.

    What we've decided for at the moment is that custom titles won't be used for everyone. We're hopefully trying to avoid a 'WHY DOES HE HAVE ONE WHEN I DON'T' kind of situation at the moment. But we will continue to discuss it and when we feel ready we'll bring it back up. I, myself, do have planned for any Moderators to have titles that say 'Moderator' simply.

    Ours aren't exactly themed though, hers is Meso-American and mine is Pre-Christian Irish Mythology.

    I say our ranks if made custom, go with a title we have earned kind of like High School superlatives, I.E. Funny man, Miss Priss, Dude with the Tude, and things of that nature.

    News to me. The whole point of this thread is to discuss whether or not they should be used.

    ephie wrote:But we will continue to discuss it and when we feel ready we'll bring it back up.

    I think we should keep the discussion open to everyone (unless it gets out of hand) since you and I are having a bit of trouble coming to a decision. It'd be great to have the feedback from everyone. A poll might make this easier, too, don't know why I didn't make one...

    ephie wrote:I, myself, do have planned for any Moderators to have titles that say 'Moderator' simply.

    I disagree with this. If anyone works hard enough to earn Mod status, they should get something in return (other than near-unparalleled authority, of course). If your concern is that people won't know they're a mod if their rank doesn't really stand out, we could always have the rank font colour be that as the mod group, right? That dark red colour.

    I didn't know that was 'news to you'. We talked right before I left and it was basically the same as it was when we first opened up the forums. Dizzy

    How about we have a William Wallace rank, or one called the alpha/omega.

    A thought, dear ladies and gentlemen, a thought from me.

    Moderators shall have custom titles, but their clovers shall all say "Moderator" upon their orange and green leaves.

    Other customs shall be in text only, earned either through the way of superlatives (as Wildman so helpfully suggested) or through exceptional services to the Mob (organizing pub stomps, donating a large sum, contributing helpfully in any way possible, etc.)

    perhaps some dieties of gods of health and bounty for super-donators as their custom titles?
