PostSubject: "Mettle" system   Sat Oct 17, 2009 11:48 am

There is a new system up which is deemed "mettle." Each user gains a certain amount for different actions.
These actions are as follows:

Posting a new thread: +3 mettle
Posting a new reply: +1 mettle
Posting a visitor message: +1 mettle
Making a friend: +2 mettle
Daily increase: +5 mettle

The daily increase happens at the beginning of each new day. You will get an additional 5 points every day.

The higher your mettle, the more active you are. (This looks REAL good when we look for who to give a mod position to Wink)

HOWEVER! If this system causes you guys to start spamming just to get points, I'll take it away.

And please bear in mind that the four admins can DEDUCT mettle from any user. If you spam, I'll not only delete your post, but you'll LOSE 15 mettle points. This includes posting "In before the lock" or something similar just to get your post into a thread that's going to be locked soon. If you continue to spam or you spam with a large amount of text, you will lose more than 15 points. There is NO limit on how much we can deduct. If you act like a jackass, we'll take ALL of your mettle points away.

Don't abuse this system, guys. I'm warning you now.
Personally, I think you'll be able to handle it. Don't prove me wrong.

Umm...


*looks around*

Nothing.

I think they're just there to reflect how often you post. Sort of a fun way to keep up activity.

Hahaha exactly.

We can actually disable these for the clan forums, which I think is what I'm going to do. Forumotion's still working on the ability to disable post count in certain sections, so we'll have to wait for that.

Speaking of which, we're going to be getting several new forum features soon.
They're giving us the ability to automatically add users to a group, have custom titles, and a few other useful things.

Hmm. Custom Titles would be nice, but I like being able to have one while nobody else can.

Hahaha ohhh you greedy little dog, you.

We're the only two people with specialized titles.

But you have to admit that people will like it and it will encourage more users to register.

Also, did you ever get my message on the small banner for our affiliates? We're linked to Club Zelda, but they have nothing to use to link to us.

Well, now a Club Zelda admin made one for us. If you still want to make our own, then go ahead, but you don't have to. :3

Ummm...

Anyways...

Go check out the staff forums. I had an idea.

'Fraid not. Sorry.

However, I can turn off the daily increase. Want me to do that?

yeah. cuz i think that the daily thing would just be kinda confusing. because they are worth more points than anything else so if you sign up early and almost never post, you would still have a large mettle amount, but if you sign up later and post all the time, they would have the same amount even if they are a very active member. the only bad thing i could think would become of the mettle system is lots of spamming and multiple accounts to get more posts. other than that, i think the whole system is pretty good. but yeah, taking away the daily ones would be good.

Alright. I'm deactivating dailies.

It should reflect activity, not existence, anyways.
