Coming Soon: New Member Ranks

[ Edited ]

Hello Everyone!

 

Is it just me or does it seem like we have we been using the same old member ranking system since, well… forever?  Not just me?  Okay, I have some good news then...

 

Seeing as how there have been more than 400,000 new members generating more than 800,000 new posts since the last set of ranks were created more than 4 years ago, we figured it’s time we recognized your dedication to the FICO Forums community in terms of participation and contributions by creating a ranking system that more closely acknowledges your true level of involvement here.

 

We'll soon be adding 12 new ranks (see below) and a more robust set of ranking criteria that (before you ask) will not be disclosed publicly.  We hope you'll enjoy working your way up through these new ranks.  And thanks to all of you for your contributions to the community!

 

-Barry

Hi Barry,

 

I was wondering why my user name is in color?   Then I saw everyone's user name is in color.   So, I decided to come her to check out what is going on.   I guess I came to the right place to find an answer.  Now I see why all member's user name is in color coded.   

 

You know what crossed my mind in first?   It's so funny ... I was thinking it's because of male/female (due to the color on my user name), and then may be City/State (location)  ...  :smileyvery-happy:

Interesting - So how far up the ladder do I have to progress before I can make a custom avatar?  Also, glad to hear you've expanded the criteria; I haven't made that many posts, but one of my threads has been read almost 10,000 times.  Hopefully that is considered.

Before the new ranks were introduced a user needed 500 post to get the custom avatar.  We didn't change that because we didn't want anyone to lose the ability to change their custom avatar, however there is more to the new formula than just posts so posting to just rank up won't work.

Lol, I won't be posting just to rank up...  I've been here since 2008 and I'm less than halfway to the 500 mark, so that would take a while.  I honestly don't care much what my rank is, but I do think it would be neat to be able to customize my avatar.  My suggestions to the admin would be to relax the custom avatar qualification requirements.

 

Based on the current frequency of posts, I will likely achieve perfect credit before I achieve a custom avatar....  Pretty funny considering I started here in the low 500's.

You make a great point, p-.  I agree this is something we should -- and will -- consider for those of you continue to be invaluable members of the community despite not having the post count of some others.  Thanks for the suggestion!
