If you're not sure what the User Title Ladder is, have a look under you name and see if you're "Well Liked" or "Very Well Liked" or "Revered".....yep, that's it :)

I would like Member input on this section as it can be a bit of fun and can also act as recognition to those Members who contribute to the site.

At present, this ladder uses Likes as the criteria. They can also be based on the number of posts or the number of Trophy Points. Perhaps I'll start a thread on those next!

This is the current ladder:

0 likes - Just Getting Started
20 likes - Liked
50 - Very Well Liked
100 - Very Very Well Liked
500 - Seriously Well Liked
1000 - Revered
2500 - Loved
5000 - Adored
10000 - On a Pedestal

I would like some input on:
  • Whether to continue to base the Ladder on Likes or to base it on Posts or Tropy points
  • How many Likes (or posts or trophy points) should be achieved for each level and
  • What each level should be named - should we stick to a RFC theme (i.e. Instead of "On a Pedestal" we use "Jack Dyer" or instead of "Loved" we use "TBR" :D
Please post your thoughts here.

Some sort of mix with weightings for posting frequency, likes and trophy points. As a first draft I would guess something like likes @ 100%, posts @10% and I dunno about trophy points, maybe 100% too (depends what they are for). It is isn't just popularity then the various titles could vary. Maybe have a mix, eg popular (high like count) vs loquacious (for high post count) or much awarded. That sort of thing.

Unfortunately, the criteria are Likes or Posts or Trophy points. There is no ability to use a combination.

Then it has to be likes. As Vossy says, quality needs recognising, post count is displayed anyway. We want to encourage volume but good content is the best driver of that.
 

believe!

Some thoughts:

I thought the rep system was good. I liked the nuance of giving rep rather than "liking" something. Maybe i take it too literally, but i think it is possible to respect the delivery without actually liking what is said.

There is a lot of banter, one sentence posts that get many "likes" as they are enjoyed by the posters but wouldn't necessarily have received a rep vote.

I realise the criteria dont include rep thus my opinion put forth here is kind of irrelevant but it is something i thought when the likes first came in. I probably still intend "rep" when i hit "like".

I think rep gave an impression to new users that it was less a mates' club and more of a discussion-focussed site.

I liked being able to comment along with the rep. It was a unique space within the forum that i miss.

Regardless, great site, great work by all, GO TIGES!!

Any suggestions on what each level should be titled?

The highest liked poster should be known as "The Axis of Awesome"

I'm liking having TBR involved in the rankings.

And I vote to bring back negative rep!
