Topic: Not a God member any more (Read 8290 times) previous topic - next topic


It seems we've been demoted from Gods to Heros   =(

Actually is was getting a bit crowded in the God group, every man and his dog has recently be Godified (myself included). It was getting to the point where we would all be Gods which I believe took something away form those who really have a lot of posts.

How about adding another break point say at 2000 (maybe more or less, you'd have to look at the post numbers to arrive at a reasonable figure) for those who have done a lot on the forum?

Not a God member any more

Does that mean they took our lighting bolts away.  :(



Afraid so Zeus, no lightning bolts for you!

That ESD is a killer to circuits anyway ...

Or perhaps godhood should only be bestowed if you're massively good or massively evil?

I am sorry for this. It happens to be one of the issues that came out wrong in the migration. Mostly it is because there ate two different ways of classifying users in YaBB and SMF. It goes as follows:


  • YaBB Newbies (0-49 posts)

  • Junior Member (50-99 posts)

  • Full Member (100-249 posts)

  • Senior Member (250-499 posts)

  • God Member(500+ posts)


  • Newbies (0-49 posts)

  • Jr. Member (50-99)

  • Full Member (100-249)

  • Sr. Member (250-499)

  • Hero Member (500+)

The database right now is mixing up both ways of classifying users and I need to decide for one of them. I think I will go for the YABB naming, just to keep people happy, however we need a new category for people over 2000 posts as mentioned, just to honor those that are really committed.

As you will have noticed, we also have implemented Karma now, that will help us seeing who are those preferred by the group because of posting better answers, etc.



Ok guys,

I gave the categories a revamp and I came out with the following:

  • Newbie: 0

  • Jr. Member: 50

  • Full Member: 100

  • Sr. Member: 250

  • God Member: 500

  • Edison Member: 1000

  • Faraday Member: 2500

  • Tesla Member: 6250

  • Shannon Member: 10000

  • Brattain Member: 15000

If there is anyone making it to transistor inventor level I will have to send that person flowers  ;)



This is how it looks like at the administration menu


Great new categories.  Puts Grumpy Mike in a much deserved class by himself :)


Cool, new levels to reach. I will however miss my lighting bolt.  ;)



Can we add one?

yay, another 10 (actually 9 when I post this) and I get a gold star.

I don't think I'll live long enough to get the flowers though.

Yey! Something to aspre too soon :)



just let me know what you are not allergic to



Why is Tesla so low in the order? IMHO Tesla was *the* biggest hacker of all times. Why are the others rated higher?
