    Underneath the username of members there is a space for a user title. These points are based on the number of trophy points you have. Points are awarded for lots of different things such as the number of posts you've made and the number of likes you've received.

    At the moment the following user titles are awarded:
    • New Member: 0 Points
    • Member: 5 Points
    • Active Member: 55 Points
    • Well-Known Member: 45 Points
    They're kind of pointless but since we are looking at them all the time, I thought it could be worth changing them to something more relevant. Perhaps add a few more ranks to achieve.
    For example:
    • New Member
    • Grasshopper
    • Master
    • Ninja
    • etc
    Any suggestions?

    Haha! I was surprised when the trophies started popping up. I guess they're a nice thumbs-up for frequent contributors. I really like the idea of adding a bit of humor to it with the Grasshopper, Ninja, etc. Could add interesting trophies like an Insomniac award for contributing at all hours (I'd def get that, lol), Focused for X amount in one area, Eclectic for diverse responses, etc.

    Yeah I agree it's not something that should be taken seriously.

    Trophies can't be as specific as posting at night or one area etc. I can trophies for the following:
    • Trophies for reaching a certain post count
    • Trophies for reaching a certain number of likes
    • Trophies for having a certain message to post ratio (i.e. lots of likes compared to number of messages posted suggests each post was of a high quality and was liked by lots of members)
    • Trophies for members being registered for a certain length of time e.g. 6 months, 1 year etc

    Personally I like your current system, "Grasshopper, Master, Ninja" whilst light seems a bit hockey to me.

    Why not go with a belt ranking system?

    But hey this is a forum, lets go with the majority

    Democracy at work!! I like it! But I am with Bruce that some of the titles seem a bit hokey... Not sure about Ninja outranking a Master, might give the Ninjas on the forums ideas :p. Mind if I have a go???

    While it is funny, I really don't like Ninja being AFTER Master... that just isn't right... in so many ways. LMAO
