I've been thinking, as I stare at my Daemon army lists (the only ones no-one has replied to), how could we get people more involved in this kind of thing, and more willing to help out and post up their thoughts.
I was thinking of a modified Rep system, where that if you got enough Rep in a particular Forum (for example, Daemon army lists) then you got a badge for it, like 'Daemon Verteran Level 1'. Then, when you get more rep in that forum, you get 'Daemon Veteran Level 2' and so forth.
This is just one idea, but what I'm thinking is rewarding people more for participating in the forum. Maybe this aint the best way to do it, but you know where I'm going with this....
Thats a great idea. Say for every 20pts of rep you get within a certain forum, you get a badge (different symbol for each forum?) and then a further 20pts progresses it another level, Lv10 being the master rank say.
Great idea, possibly a little complicated to implement? Not sure, knowing nothing about programming or whatever lol.
I wouldn't set the bar that low. Some people around here have huge amount of rep power, easily granting several levels. 100 per level wouldn't be unrealistic, then 150 for the next level, and so on. To get to the max, say 10 as you suggested, I think it should ake quite some time, so you should ALWAYS have something to work towards. This is just my thoughts however....
Another thing I thought of, is each post you condtribute in that forum could be worth 1 point of 'rep' towards this badge. This way, you can work towards it, without halving to cross your fingers and hope someone reps you. Using Rep helps though, because it should also increase the quality of the post, and reduce double posting and spamming (something the mods should be onto anyway...)
As for the programing, I'm thinking it would be like how Enhanced was. After a certain amount of rep, forum participation etc, you got the badge. However, like you, I don't know much about the progaming.

Yeah the idea I like also, not that I'll get anything for that sort of stuff because I'm not helpful at all in the fluff or maintaining of armies.
This is a good idea, but the current rep system wont allow this unless we re-program the whole thing. Something that would require alot of work, but there is a similar way by using the old award hack
Blackhat's new blog network for terrain crafters!
Surely there's a forum you're mostly active in though? It could be any sub forum, like the Painting forum if that was your thing. You could get a badge 'Painting Veteran level 1' and so on.
But the idea is get more posts, and of quality if possible, not just reward the people currently doing it. You may not get a bsdge now, but maybe this way you (or anybody, not picking on you ! :happy could strive to be more helpful, and get more people posting.
Thanks for the feedback on this one so far, really appreciate it.
Now I just have to wait for Admin or Mods to shoot me down in flames!
EDIT: Oh Blacky! You made it! Hmm, shame it would require a heap of work....guess we'll have to let you figure this one out, and give us the yay or nay later on....
Of course, if there was another way to get the badges, and reward people....well, i can't think of one right now, but someone else may...

How about sig images?
It's just a question of how to earn them....maybe Mods could hand the badges out, if they notice someone doing a great job or something.....but then it's opinion based. How DID the old enchanced thing work anyway!? Couldn't it work something like that?
Have to keep working at it guys!
BTW, seems like I'm gunning for 'suggestion veteran level 1', ey? *joke, dont kill me!*
Hmm.. suggestion based... is there any way that voting threads can be edited?
If so, maybe something along the lines of a stickied poll thread in each forum, and people vote on all the people who they thing are helpful in that thread.
This would involve a really open voting thread though, such that you could vote, enter the vote, and then be able to go back and vote again if necessary (though not for the same person)
Just an idea.. anyone care to add to that?
I really like the idea, tim. It would also help in giving people ideas on who to go to when they are asking questions. Perhaps this could be done using a usergroup type structure? Then the ranks could be contained within the usergroup and could possibly reduce the amount of programming needed--or at least make it a bit easier.
No, I don't have any wool.
