Member rating

Post by braco » Sat Mar 19, 2011 12:51 pm

I have a suggestion for you :) I know the post count is the easiest way to "rate" members, but it isn't good IMO. Take me for example, I have 250 posts and I'm rated as Savage Superstar, which I am definitely not. I am still soaking info every day, and I call myself a noob. I am still learning in practice every time I'm out with my Savage. Every time I have "well, I *censored**** up this time, I won't do this again" moment. I learned a lot, *censored*, I can tune K5.9 perfectly :D.

What I'm trying to say is, if members know a member that is savage doctor, hel*, give him 10 stars if he deserves them. I know that people will respect a member which has a higher rating and more posts, which doesn't mean he knows what's he talking about. Let's say Robin's (purenitro) account gets deleted. I DON'T want that happen, but let's say it does happen. And then? He makes another account and he is Savage Newb, which he isn't.

Just a thought here, I don't want to offend anybody here by any means. Just a suggestion... :)

I get what your saying,
but even a noob on our site can have great knowledge, look at me I have over 5000 post's I dont consider myself an expert, I still learn & see things I never knew,,happens all the time.

IMO I dont consider post count anything, Every member can offer great idea's, and respect should be given to all.
I know a few "savage doctors" on our site, and I bet you do too, And most other's already know them too, just from what they post.

Its not a bad idea, but I dont want it to be "popularity contest"

It ain't broke I ain't fixin' it.  :lol:
All joking side, the member rating add on ends up being a popularity contest from what I have seen on other sites. The members here tend to police each other well, and politely. I personally see no reason to try and add the extra add on to the site.

We tried that before. Points for replies, more for links or pics etc. People found loop holes and took advantage. O killed it not long after it started.
