Just wondering...

Post by BluntAnims on Thu Apr 16, 2009 6:50 am

Under your avatar, there are 5 stars.

Now, do the stars represent your role on the site? e.g. Admin, Moderator, General user.
Or do the stars represent Animation talent? e.g. noob animator, good animator, animation expert.

Just Wondering...



And yes, I'm going to use the site more often.

I think it's just how long and experienced you are with this forum. Are you a long time member here or not. It represents who you are. I don' think it's animation experience as it updates by itself how much posts you make. At least that's what it does on my forum because I use forumotion as well.

Actually. No, its animator skill. It has changed because I still have to make a rank-up section. It goes with the rank, as most people have "rank-pending"

PS: mine is 5 because im admin though Smile

ugh, i actually dont like this concept. Ranking useres by their animation skills limits the capaciy to get involved in the community because they are more readily ignored in their views and opinions.

Special has a point, Maybe it should be the users experience on the forum or general halpfullness or something, or even it could be a respect system. Eg you know if someone knows what theyre talking about by checking they're stars.

Yeah. I agree with Mack. The ranking of animating skills will only isolate bad animators and neglect them from the community.

Well actually... I was thinking that it would help people because it would give them the motivation to rank-up. When I was in the TC (tisfat community) they had ranks. It inspired me to want to be known as a good animator. I worked hard and was able to improve and display my skills as an animator. Tisfat ranks also give other users a chance to let say.. You wanted to battle someone, but you were looking for someone challenging that would give you a good battle. You would be able to look at people's ranks and know if you wanted to challenge them or not. If it becomes a problem where people begin to abuse their rank (for example: treat other users badly based on their rank), then mods can deal with the users. If it becomes too much of a problem, then I will get rid of the system entirely.

PS: Bluntanims is on beginner for the lulz. I will change it though

Both sides have valid points on the argument but danny's example has tipped me into favour of the stars being for animation rank purposes. Maybe if we (the community) settle this in an official poll?

I think the rank works, It gives you something to work to, to achieve a goal, give more inspiration into animating, which means you will learn quicker. It is also a great competitive asset, and it boosts the community.
