Respected Community Member - New Forum Rank
« on: April 30, 2016, 10:25:29 PM »
Hey everyone! So, by now, you probably have noticed a few people with blue names and a forum title of "Respected Community Member"

I would like to take a brief moment to go over that, and to set a couple things straight.



What it is: This new forum title is something that we (Ulysses Team) decided to create to promote a positive atmosphere and to reward/recognize those community members who are active members of the Ulysses community but above all, friendly and supportive.

What it's not: This new title is not a rank. People who have earned this title do not have privileges or access that other members don't have. It's simply a way for us to recognize people who go out of their way to set the example for how we want the community to be.

How is it earned: All members of the team here are able to make nominations and then we vote on it.  If you would like to earn the new title, the best thing you can do is to just be a great example and be active in the community.

Things that won't get it for you: Please do not ask for it. Do not make posts complaining or even alluding to how you wish you had it or that you think you should have it. Being rude to new people or anyone will not get you recommended. You don't need to be a scripter to earn this. We're not looking for people who release lots of cool addons, we're looking for people who are great, helpful community members.



That about sums it up.
If you feel like you should have earned this rank, chances are you are being considered or will be considered for it.

If you have any questions, please post them here and we'll answer them.


Thanks All!! :)
-MrP

I've been called many, many things in my life.  "Respected"?  That's a new one.  :)

Don't get us wrong; emphasis in a grouped phrase is everything.
You are a member, of a respected community.

So is there anything between "newbie" (like me  ;D) and Respected Community Member?

Currently, all other member ranks between Newbie and Respected are based on amount of forum posts.

And don't make trash posts just to increase your numbers - that's one quick way to lose your access over all.

If you're alluding to my post above, I wasn't trying to do that I was just asking.

If not, no worries, I understand :P

He wasn't.. but we've had people in the past replying to every thread with just one word replies or bumping 2 year old threads just to increase their post count.

Posts with actual content or questions would never be considered trash posts.

If anyone was wondering, there was no particular reasoning for the limits or the titles. I think they were mostly the defaults given by SMF. I find the visual of the number of bars the most helpful piece of it -- generally if you have more posts, you are more knowledgeable about what you're talking about. There are exceptions though. :)
