Re: Forum Rankings and Custom Avatars

[ Edited ]

Dom, good question.

 

I think it is currently changing for those in the Developer branch, but in the past, the forum ranking has been an algorithm based on posts, logins, page views, time spent online, etc.

 

If I recall correctly, the ability to use a custom avatar comes available at the Trusted Contributor rank.

 

Does that help?

Re: Forum Rankings and Custom Avatars

It does indeed. Thanks a lot. Are you aware of how the developer system is changed versus the old system? I figure by standard reckoning I'd be appraoching trusted contributor at this point, but I'm developer level 1. Not sure how this all comes together yet.

 

Anyway, thanks for your help,

~Dom

 

EDIT:

 

I found the following link:

 

Developer Recognition Program

 

It explains the new features for developers. Does this functionality overwrite the standard forum functionality? In other words, if we have a certain forum status (ie. Regular Contributor), is that still maintained regardless of developer level?

Re: Forum Rankings and Custom Avatars

I'm thinking that overrides whatever universal forum status settings there may be, as I described above.

Re: information about Position

Correct... go read one of the most recent posts in the developer blog for information on that,.

Re: information about Position

I think the rankings are different now. I've seen "Guru" within the last few days (ie. JSanders above: He was "Elite III" last week...)

Re: Forum Rankings and Custom Avatars

At the time of this posting, you have 12 posts. That, along with your time spent online, etc, has earned you the rank of contributor, which is displayed right below your username, above the avatar. Trusted contributor is a few ranks up from where you currently sit.

 

If you are a developer, it is my understanding that the developer rankings trump the standard forum rankings, and so the rule of thumb stated above no longer applies.

 

Hope that helps,

~Dom
