Title: What are the User Ranks?
Post by: Whitney on May 31, 2009, 04:18:56 AM
User ranks are just fun titles we give to users based on their post count.  The following is a list of those titles and the post counts associated with them:

Padawan Learner 0-49 - because I like Star Wars if you don't :P
Beginning to See the Wedge 50-100
Pupa 101-150 - cocoon stage of a butterfly
Has Received Bacon 151-200
Doesn't Believe in Mother Goose 201-250

I think "Hates Pat Robertson" deserves more than a 15 post range.

Fixed Padawan Learner to coincide with graduation to full board at 50 posts.

Everyone, feel free to think of new ranks for past the 1500 range.

Apologies if this has been suggested before.  At Venganza, when a poster reaches an extremely high number of posts (in that case, the goal is 5,000), they are voted their own custom Prophet title.  Nominations are taken from the membership and then voted on.   The [strike:r3auc6w7]victim's[/strike:r3auc6w7] recipient's opinions are welcomed, and occasionally even given a measure of consideration.  This has produced some rather interesting and usually hilarious results.

Ok time for a bit of fun

This is the current user rank set up.

(https://www.happyatheistforum.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fimg842.imageshack.us%2Fimg842%2F3475%2Fuserranks.jpg&hash=9377338b4f02b422114e7f49b2cc7be18e80cc0c)

At the moment we can't do custom ranks so don't ask please.  :D

However I'd like to add some more differentiation for post counts less than 100 and particularly the 1 to 9 ranks.

Suggestion welcome.

But we are currently trying to get the forum onto V2 of the software. Once that's done gonna revamp the rankings, set up a spam filter based on the SFS API, integrate some advertising so the forum becomes self financing and then see about expanding the smilies. How long this will all take is any bodies guess, so don't hold your breath  :D

Since I've been outed here (http://www.happyatheistforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=14069.msg319825#msg319825) ((https://www.happyatheistforum.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi48.tinypic.com%2F29nfig9.gif&hash=8b35775c53db973cfea4a41f01c9d054608ebc88)), I'll carry on with my plan and request further ideas for user ranks. Not sure regarding how high the possible limit on post count based ranks is; some further experimentation regarding that will be necessary. For instance, I tried to set "Guardian of Reason" at 25,000 posts, because that was a rank that Tank had requested years ago (http://www.happyatheistforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=3351.msg102145#msg102145), and it didn't seem to work. I'll try it again, though, and maybe get it to stick, in which case we might end up with only one guardian of reason. (https://www.happyatheistforum.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi43.tinypic.com%2F34nlee8.gif&hash=a951f4cfdfb0f7390126ba89d9d510956e2cdce7)

Some shuffling of the rank designations may take place, depending on the selection of titles that are suggested, and of course there's no guarantee that all titles offered will be used (I rejected at least one of my own earlier suggestions as not worthy, for instance). Though some of the fun is trying to figure out what the particularly gnomic ranks signify, I will also be willing to try to explain any that seem especially mysterious and/or vexing.

Above you will see that the not commonly lamented former member "AnimatedDirt" came up with a couple of more or less derogatory ranks "for the minority at HAF."

He had such a way about him, did AD. (https://www.happyatheistforum.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi47.tinypic.com%2F51vl9l.gif&hash=551bbecd3028fdb6b51de023164d7e02fee712d3)

Not interested in stuff like that--more in things you wouldn't mind having associated with your posts, perhaps for 500 or 1,000 of them. In other words, try to come up with the good shit, my fellow HAFians.

Although I deviously carried out the revival of HAF ranks without telling anybody, I did consult with Tank once it had been done, asking for any thoughts in re revision or addition. Same applies here for the membership in general, including advocacy for reviving any of the old ranks that got dropped.

Or, we could leave it as it is, for now.

Below is the list as it currently stands:

Post by: Recusant on October 25, 2015, 05:12:40 AM
The "dark night of the soul" is a Roman Catholic meme. Not getting into too much religious nonsense; it refers to a spiritual trial (usually an attack of despair) that a person endures on their "path to God." Obviously an atheist is not on a path to any deity, but pretty much all of us have confronted or will confront despair, and must find a way to overcome it or make our peace with it without the crutch of faith in a mystical, all powerful father figure.

Part of that may involve acknowledging the finality of death while appreciating the good things in life, but every atheist who is at least minimally self-reflective has to find their own way, sometimes with the help of a friend or two. Catholics don't have a monopoly on this sort of thing, and using the phrase in an atheist context is a way of showing that.

TL;DR-- "Still hangin' in there, with a smile."

As always, this thread is open for suggestions. Exceptionally good ones can be added to the higher post counts, but I'm willing to work worthwhile ones into the list, rearrange, and bump the post count up for our more prolific members. However I think that 5000 is a good spot for "Guardian of Reason." ;D

No. In fact I'm not particularly fond of that user rank, but 5,000 is a sort of landmark and "Guardian" implies a solid position in the community. If a better user rank is proposed for 5,000, I'd have no objections to changing it and moving "Guardian of Reason" up on the list.

The way I see it, there is a certain arrogant streak to the rank "Guardian of Reason", but I like it. It's like one of those badges you want to wear, even if you aren't always reasonable.  :shifty:

However I think that 5000 is a good spot for "Guardian of Reason." ;D

Do you think that because it's the group you're currently in? :P

No. In fact I'm not particularly fond of that user rank, but 5,000 is a sort of landmark and "Guardian" implies a solid position in the community. If a better user rank is proposed for 5,000, I'd have no objections to changing it and moving "Guardian of Reason" up on the list.

I was joking there. :sidesmile: ;)

Yep, I got the humor there, and should have added a smiley before my reply.  ;)  You've also put your finger on the reason for my feelings about my current user rank.  :cheers:

Recusant, your current Avatar is appropriate.  You input does remind me of the many insightful pronouncements of Isaac Assimov.

You flatter me overmuch, Icarus, but I thank you.  :embarrassed:

I've been an admirer of Asimov since my childhood, and today is one of the days that I celebrate his birthday. Nobody knows precisely on which date he was born, but October 4 is one, January 2 the other.

Rational arguments, yeah, I got them.
