Member Rankings

Hello World!

I have seen many member rankings in the forum like :-

God Member, Global Moderator, Newbie, Jr. Member, Faraday Member, etc.
I am currently a newbie put I have about 2 years of experience in Arduino.

How do you get these Rankings? Is it based on time in the forum or the number of posts?
Any replies will be appreciated.

It's based on the number of posts:

DojoDave:

  • 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 :wink:

Global moderator is something different, that means you're a forum moderator.

No-one ever sent me flowers.

Though I did once get a nice box of Arduinos (“Arduini”? What is the correct plural?) and shields

And now you get a second chance to go for the big prize :slight_smile:

Over ALL the forum sections not just individual sections. :wink:

Just a question how do you become a Global Moderator? What is the difference between a Global moderator and a forum administrator?

A forum administrator is responsible for a particular section or even maybe a couple of sections.
It may be that they just need to deal with specific topics and have more knowledge in those sections.

Global moderator does not automatically imply global knowledge but maybe the person has access to a larger set of sections.

This is especially true for the language sections as English covers more sections so a global moderator can cover more ground as opposed to say French or Spanish which have fewer sections.

Some global moderators work for Arduino so they certainly need access to all sections.

Becoming a moderator of any type can come about in a few ways

Maybe a person was noticed being helpful above and beyond what would be expected and has shown a certain responsibility.

Maybe they asked for the role in a certain area.

Or they may have asked for a certain area but were asked or given a wider role eg. GLOBAL.

However it happens it does not happen overnight as there needs to be a long trend of posts to back up somebody being chosen.

EDIT...
Post counts matter along with thier contents as does to a limited extent, karma.

I woke up one morning with blue stars by my name.
I didn’t even ask for them.

I can only assume someone fat-fingered something they shouldn’t have.

I think I read somewhere Massimo fat fingered you (wait that sounds …Hmmm OK I am going with that and no edit)

Oh well that’s good! But you don’t have those stars now?

I gave them up, and started a new life.

Oh nice

@AWOL here is a reminder... See from #36 onward.
