What are the various ranks and what do the pretty stars have to do with them? Mine is Jr. member,


<---There, I assume...

<---Or here

yeah, i was mildly curious about this but i didn't try searching through all the "Read This First" threads in each section.
i think the stars go from white, to yellow to blue.
i really get a kick out of the fact that "God Member" is not really that high !! :D

God member used to be the highest (at 500 posts IIRC). I just got there when the new rankings were introduced and was demoted from being at the top to about midway :(

I've been a Telsa member for what seems like years now, man there's a big gap between the upper rankings. Has anyone graphed them, is it logarithmic or something?

nice info CodingBadly  +1 ;)

is there a special meaning for 6250 in the world of electronics ?
am wondering why Tesla has that as the limit instead of 5000.

EDIT:
whoops sorry, just got it - continuing factor of 2.5x from previous level.

Ah, thanks.

EDIT: Hang on, that would mean Telsa starts at 6250 and ends at 15625, but PeterH is a Shannon member at 10152 and retrolefty is Brattain at 16281, so the 2.5x does not apply at these levels.

OK maybe I should have looked at the last link CodingBadly posted on the other thread, Shannon is 10k, Brattain is 15k. I even posted on that thread some time ago, ah the joys of a failing memory.

not quite logarithmic, but ;

Thanks, interesting and confirms my belief that as I get older everything gets harder. I think we should invert the graph so us old-farts don't have such a steep climb.

Back when I started work at Data General in 1979, 6250 was the bits per inch (bpi) of the high density 9 track magnetic tape drives we used to transfer programs/data from system to system, and had a whopping 140 megabytes of data.  The medium range tape drives of the day were 1600bpi (40 megabytes), and the low range were 800bpi (20 megabytes).

Posts shouldn't be the only thing that decides ranks. We should add Karma in.

Just for the fun of it, let's define centiKoP=100*Karma/Posts or 100 times of Karma over Posts, so the popularity or usefulness of a member.

Eg:
PaulS: centiKoP=51600/44497=1.16

Liudr: centiKoP=5900/6674=0.88 Way to go!  XD

I was going to define deciKoP to mock decibel, but the numbers are too small.

Anyone else?

1.42 for me. I think I'll have to get a bit grumpier :)

I'm thinking, is a score 3.35 a good thing then?
That's what we need, a 'Grumpy Old Mens Club'.

i agree - that does make cents.

hmm, centimeter = 1 / 100 m
why is centiK, 100 * K ?   :smiley-eek:


Anyone else?


if i'm not getting Karma for making that graph - then 'No!' :P

Hmmm, 2.785 for me.  I don't know if I need to be grumpier or more helpful.  XD :D 8)

So mine, 100 * 406/22367 = 1.815
Seems like high posters kinda get burned for jumping in to so many threads.
Not sure "popularity" is the right word.

Then you've got posters like Nick Gammon with 100 * 452/18694 = 2.417 with a lot of tests and documentation that we reference a lot, or Grumpy Mike with 100 * 481/30416 = 1.581 who's done and documented a lot of stuff as well.  I would think that some extra credit should go towards those things.
