You might have noticed every user now has a level, display next to their rank in the post. At the moment, this level is calculated solely on a user's post count, but it will be extended in the future to prevent flooding just to get better levels. Also, expect further trinkets that'll help enhance the feel of the board  :D

I have to congratulate u on the new forum, it finally looks similar to the gem that was once the swipnet forum (i think) this has more features and looks nicer, but the original was easier on the eye :)

I like the setup now that the posts you havn't read have that little red thingy next to them (when it works I might add)

Sorry, no words-per-post calculations. Levels are calculated real-time, so one would have to screen through every single post on the board and count the words each time your level was to be displayed.

Well, in an arguement...  your opinion would be taken more over mine :wicked: , if no one else actually knew the material we were arguing over... I guess?

Actually I would agree with you Sir MOT!  Remember you have managed to mind control the lower level slimes such as myself into smashing all X-Boxes that we come across.

So how is the level calculated?
Is it something with the user-post-percent-of-all-posts ?

*Uses MASTER level "Knights of the Round" on Goku7, and watchs him die.* :wicked:

*Then Seph3D takes his Phonix Potions, all his revival items and a few Ether potions off of Goku7's body before casting "Life" on him. Then Seph3D tosses him a dime.*

Go get a drink & come back in about 15 levels.

I like the levels, but wouldn't it be cool to have some description title other than the newbie, crazy poster, no life titles.  I mean, we can keep those titles, but we can have something that describes us, like for example, Alhexx "a heartbroken cyberstalker", Caddberry "tripped out dude", Qhimm "the forum deity", something like that.  We can be able to edit those descriptions.

I knew I shoulda followed up with Lion Heart......  :oops:  

Wait a minute!  I forgot!  I'm a clone of Goku!  So you wanna wait till I gain levels, eh?

*Uses Keioken x20, level is boosted past 99..*

Is this high enough for 'ya?

Yeah... "Forum Diety" sounds cool.

It's be cool to be able to give us a little description to put next to our rank or something... I have no idea what I'd put though.

Actually, It's in a PNG format, that only Netscape 6 currently supports natively with the Alpha channel. If you were to look at my avatar with NS6, you'll see the image transparent, lookig near-perfect, like it'd been rendered for that background.

I like NS6. :D

This possibly goes a bit off-topic, however:

Qhimm or SaiNt: Is there a Rank after "No Life", perhaps at 2000 posts (or 5000)?

The old forum let you go to the FAQ and see the ranks.  "No life" was the last on the list, but since some people are nearing 2000, I think a new rank would be kinda cool...

Maybe Qhimm could make one up but it'd be a surprise until someone passes 2000.
