Title: Member group list change
Post by: James Patten on July 01, 2012, 12:57:56 AM
For those of you that look at this kind of thing, I changed around the member group list names and number of posts it takes to get to them.  Mike was getting too close to the Superintendant title at the top of the list.  ;D

The OLD list and number of posts to get there was:
Greenhorn0
Crew Caller10
Switchman50
Brakeman100
Fireman250
Engineer500
Conductor750
Trainmaster1000
Roadmaster1250
Superintendant1500

The NEW list, and the number of posts it takes to get there, is now:
Hobo0no stars
Engine Wiper5no stars
Gandy Dancer10one star
Flagman25one star
Switchman50two stars
Baggageman100two stars
Brakeman150three stars
Hostler200three stars
Fireman300four stars
Engineer500four stars
Conductor750five stars
Dispatcher1000five stars
Inspector1250six stars
Supervisor1500six stars
Yardmaster2000seven stars
Trainmaster2500seven stars
Superintendent3000eight stars

So, Mike you're now an Inspector, not a Roadmaster any more.

It's okay, Mike. The moderator can't spell superintendent.

And actually, a hostler is lower in the pecking order on the railroad than a fireman.

OK I have fixed the spelling of superintendEnt, and switched hostler and fireman.

I changed Tramp to Hobo.
While I was approving a new (female) member of the forum, I became uncomfortable with that label showing up under her name.

Obviously you never saw "The Lady is a Tramp"

I always liked "Knight of the open road....."

Yes, but then the female equivalent would be a "Lady of the open road" - a title best avoided.

p.s. Ed, are we on our way to the Whimsical, Weirdness, and Foolery page yet?

FYI, all:

The Disney movie was titled: "Lady and the Tramp".

"The Lady is a Tramp", is a song, with nothing to do with the above movie.  Frank Sinatra is probably one of the best known interpreters of that song.

With this in mind, I think "hobo" is a good substitution for our female members.

I finally understand the new name for member comment totals.  Now would someone please explain the stars, their color, and how to get them?  My last experience with stars as rewards was in the second grade!

I have updated the table at the top of this thread. It now shows the correct orders, spelling, and includes the "star rating" for each category.

In addition, there are different color stars.
gold - normal forum participant.
blue - Global Moderator (James)
dark gold - Administrator (Me)

Also, for the record, Rodger has moderator privileges in the Monson Blog. Jason has moderator privileges in the Operating Volunteers section (which is not available to non-operating personnel.)
