Last week, I went through and made a few changes to the reputation system within the forum. There's still a long way to go to get it to where I would like it to be, but here is the current system.
Your rank is displayed below your name on your "postbit" (the bit next to your post with your avatar etc.). As you post more, your rank will increase. At this time, this rank is purely a status symbol, but later on I plan to tie it to rewards on the forum.
The current ranking system is as follows:
- 0 Posts - Recruit
- 25 Posts - Esquire
- 50 Posts - Knight
- 100 Posts - Baronet
- 200 Posts - Baron
- 350 Posts - Viscount
- 500 Posts - Count
- 750 Posts - Marquess
- 1,000 Posts - Sovereign Prince
- 1,500 Posts - Duke
- 2,000 Posts - Prince
- 2,500 Posts - Grand Prince
- 3,500 Posts - Archduke
- 5,000 Posts - King
- 10,000 Posts - Emperor
I've added in some achievements for reaching Tier 2, 3, and 4 (levels 15, 40, and 75) and will be looking to add more achievements for different activities within the forum.
Since we started the forum, we have had the same set of avatars for everybody and this didn't really make a lot of sense to me. I've updated the default Avatars to reflect their in-game representatives now, and I've added in some new tiers of Avatar.
These avatars are available to all users.
- Bomb King
These avatars are available to users with a Forum Level of 15 or higher.
These avatars are available to users with a Forum Level of 40 or higher.
- Exit Strategy
- Queen of the Hills
- Sticky Bomb
These avatars are available to users with a Forum Level of 75 or higher.
- Dodge Roll
Please note: the avatar promotion system may be tweaked, and I will add more avatars and levels as we progress.
We plan to include some future additions to the reputation system moving forward such as Custom Usertitles, Custom Name Colour (similar to Moderator / Hi-Rez Staff colours etc.), and a few other smaller items.
