There is great merit in recognizing the contributions of the most active members as it make the community thrive and encourages more participation.

In that setting it is perhaps important to consider whether the labels used are optimally supportive of that laudable goal.


I believe the labels in use at present may bias the rate at which members respond and post.

Who would be anxious to become a "Senior" citizen in a community? Surely it is already problematic enough to be publicly seen as "Regular."

Why not instill a sense of adventure and excitement by using labels such as "Explorer", " Maestro (a)", "Senator" [recalling the original wonderful FORUM], "Astronaut" etc.

Other approaches might focus on characters from mythology, fabulous creatures, etc.

Here is what we could try.

Let's organize a petition to create a Naming Rights Privilege.

If it were to be approved this is how it might work.

Whoever gets to the next level first on the Poster Label ladder would have the honor of renaming that level to whatever he/she decided. Thereafter that member would not be eligible to have that right even if he/she was the first to reach the next level until at least five other members had the opportunity to name a level.

As we gain experience we could add more complications and by Thanksgiving, we should have developed a system that would rival even the most arcane arrangement that existed under any of the legacy plans on RingPlus. It would be just like the good old days.

I find it odd that 4 out of the top 5 with the most profile views are ringplus mods! Genuine interest? Narcissism? Getting their avatars just right? Maybe simply PMing each other!

I'd be interested to know why 65 people looked at mine? I don't think there is anything there.

Sorry for the spoiler, but the truth is probably far less intriguing/suspicious. The view counts are skewed because of bots and crawlers. The most viewed also happen to be the oldest accounts. And since it's been almost a year since I first launched this forum (and RP Mods were the first to join back then) that means there's been a lot more time for web crawlers to periodically tick up those profile views.

That makes sense! Didn't realize this forum had been around almost a year.

I looked up the first posts out of curiosity and I think the earliest were from about February 21, 2016. Activity has obviously picked up dramatically recently and there are almost 2,000 posts now.
