Site Updates: Lot of Shiny Stuff! [Updated!]

Post by Rapsheba555 on June 16th 2010, 4:25 am

So, we have a lot of new shiny stuff up now! First off, you may notice some differences in the way the ranks work. I eliminated the custom ranks for non-VIP/Staff users, however this has been made up for, which you shall see later. Anyway, the rank scheme now goes like this:

Lv00
Lv11
Lv22
Lv34
Lv48
Lv516
Lv632
Lv764
Lv8128
Lv9256
Lv10281
Lv11306
Lv12331
Lv13356
Lv14381
Lv15406
Lv16431
Lv17456
Lv18481
Lv19531
Lv20581
Lv21631
Lv22681
Lv23731
Lv24831
Lv25931
Lv261031
Lv271131
Lv28?
...?

The graphics themselves were updated, and the way they work are different. There are 2 main "levels," Blue and Gold. On the blue level you gain a half a star every time you double your post count, IE: from 1 to 2, from 2 to 4, from 4 to 8, and so on. When you reach the gold level, you gain a fifth of a star for every 25 posts for the duration of the first 2 stars. Then, the third star ups the requirement to 50 per slice, and the last star requires 100 posts for every slice. There might possibly be even levels after that, but you'll have to just find out over time, eh? Wink

I have not yet named the ranks, as my brain is working in technical, not creative mode. So if you don't like that your rank is "Lv 15," don't worry, I'll make them more creative tomorrow.

Next up! A nifty new shiny thing! Profile Messages! You may be asking yourself why you'd need profile messages since we have Private Messaging; the difference is that a profile message is public and is intended to be shorter, usually, than a PM. If you're still confused, I've spammed Ivy's Message Wall, so go take a look here.

Last but most certainly not least, I have made some changes to the way that your profiles are laid out. You'll notice that gone are your locations from the posts. In it's place, we've added a "Sandbox," it's essentially a free box where you can put any short message. It could be "Inspector of Lie Cake" or "Left of Nowhere," anything you want. At the moment, none of you have this field filled out, so you'll have to go to your profiles and fill them in! Your locations still appear on your profile pages, however, so you can still edit those as well. If you're curious where the sandbox appears on your posts, look to the left, mine says "All operators are busy, please insert more money."

Hope you all enjoy! I'm gonna go sleep now. Fancy pants!
