Jaid666 is our big winner, with most of the entries we're using!
Sub-winners are: Geluve (Rhino Keeper), PurpleIvy (Hostess). Executive Chef was mine, so no Gems for that one.
So, that's 200 Gems to jaid666, 20 to PurpleIvy and 20 to Rhino Keeper.
Here's the final ranks:
1) New Resident
3) Farm Supplier
4) Rhino Keeper
5) Fashion Designer
6) Executive Chef
7) Nightclub Owner
8) Grand Emperor
To the three winners, let me know the games where you want the Gems by PM. Congrats, and thanks everyone for the fantastic entries!
Stole this from CoffeeStorm/the S8 forums, but I've been meaning to do this for a while. It's title time! Instead of just boring ole' Member/Senior Member, we want more original and creative titles for the TeamLava forums.
(Unfortunately, thanks to that vbulliten bug, they still won't be visible to everyone from the main page... but everyone can see their titles from their profiles. And hopefully, we can get that display issue sorted out.)
Come up with a title/ranking system to be used across the TeamLava forums.
Come up with custom titles to be used for members with the following postcounts:
Rank 1: 0-9 posts
Rank 2: 10-49 posts
Rank 3: 50-99 posts
Rank 4: 100-499 posts
Rank 5: 500-999 posts
Rank 6: 1000-4999 posts
Rank 7: 5000-9999 posts
Rank 8: 10k+ posts
You cannot use a rank someone else already posted. This is to keep the ideas fresh, and to encourage people to post early.
But what if it's a GREAT idea? If you do use a rank already offered by someone else, and you win, your grand prize will be 20 Gems lower, with that going to the person who originally had the idea. Think of it as you giving them credit for a nifty idea that made your entry shine
How to Enter
Come up with an idea for all eight ranks, and post them in this thread.
You can only enter once. You cannot edit your entry (this is to make life sane for myself, as I try to determine who had an idea first.) If you do want to resubmit your entry, you must "delete" your original one (by editing it out), and post a new entry at the end of the thread. In effect, you're abdicating your seniority in order to get a second try.
Grand Prize: 200 Gems, minus 20 Gems for duplicate ranks. Be original!
Consolation Prize: 20 Gems if the Grand Prize winner used your idea for a rank. One per rank.
Consolation Prize #2: 20 Gems if we decide your awesome rank idea deserves inclusion in the final system. This is not subtracted from the Grand Prize winner.
These are a few random ideas to get you started. Anyone can use these for no penalty. Use them, discard them, be inspired, or think "I can do way better."
Remember, they don't all have to be directly related to TeamLava. They can be general terms like "Journeyman" or "Newbie." The idea is to create a clever system that sounds more and more awesome as you get more points. It should also reflect your relevant rank in the community. "Senior Member" does a good job of this, but we can all agree it's a bit plain.
You have until Monday, August 29th at 9:59am Pacific Daylight Time to post your entries in this thread. Good luck!
