Ranking the forums

Postby normsherman » Tue Aug 04, 2009 9:20 pm

Intrepid beast wrangler Bo Kaier has uncovered our own ability to add forum 'ranks' a la the Escape Artists boards (http://forum.escapeartists.info/), AKA titles based on comment count. You may have noticed that 'member' recently popped up in your identification, well, consider that step 1.

We would like to do things a bit different here, eschew 'stars' in favor of something a bit more Drabbley as far as titles and icons. Here were some of our thoughts:

Drabble rabble (1 comment)
Toastling (25 comments)
Mur'baby (50 comments)
Wiggly Person (100 comments)
??? (200 comments)
??? (300 comments)
??? (400 comments)
??? (500 comments)
??? (1,000 comments and beyond)

Anyone care to lend a few suggestions? Thoughts?

Does this also mean that the Moderatrix have the power to annotate unfortunates? This could get ugly...

I'm now Beast-Master, I'm guessing that could just as easily be 'Village Idiot.' I trust the hearts of Norm and Tweedy - the power will only be used for betterment of Drabble kind.

My suggestions:
200 comments - Humbolt
300 comments - Friendly Narwhal
600 comments - Carnivorous Robot

just a few if I may:


Toast crusher (obviously a low count)
pie hunter
wiggly person
creature in disguise

how about some mean ones?
run-of-the-mill vampire
over-saturated zombie (except for Kevin Anderson's)
One day he will look into what a ‘stigmata’ really is; for now, it is his trump card for getting out of work. He simply says ‘stigmata’ and they say ‘shit, hope you feel better soon.’ End of story.

I also second Pie Hunter, Wiggly Person and Creature in Disguise.
Jolly Bus Driver as one of the tops.
Great suggestions!

I think that Giant Squid should be the absolute highest. I mean, c'mon, what can possibly top a giant squid? This is the drabblecast, after all.

More suggestions:

Uncle Smarmy
Flophouse Junkie
Fifty Sheckle (or any other name from Babylon Battle of the Bands - Hegemon Sargon, MC Hammurabi, etc.)
Teenage Zombie
Giant Jellyfish/Mutant Sea Turtle

Great minds think alike. I had thought this one before I saw your post.

The Dribblecast, we don't care if you sound like an idiot.

Thanks.

I think the permanent existence of a swear in your title would unbalance Tweedy, and send him on a ban and or murder spree. How about we just have all the ranks be cat breeds? Something everyone can enjoy.

100 posts Tabby
200 posts Sphinx
300 posts Siamese
400 posts .... uh, the other one

Shouldn't Hellaphant be somewhere up there?

If you wanted something shinnier for giant squid, you could say Architeuthidae or perhaps Architeuthis.

I will attach some previews to this, but here is what I'm thinking for the final list. I'm going to try for 24 x 24 for the icons, maybe 16 x 16 if I'm truly bold.

1 Drabble Rabble
10 Pumpkin Seed
25 Toastling
50 Wiggly Person
100 Mur'baby

150 Pie Hunter
200 Teenage Zombie
250 Vampire Lawyer
300 Creature in Disguise
350 Chrono Probe

400 Bull Clown
500 Jolly Bus Driver
600 Friendly Narwhal

700 Telephant
800 Hellaphant
900 Hellagoodaphant

1000 B&W Animal

I propose that the top spot be changed to "Giant Squid" (as someone previously suggested). I also propose that Mega Beast-named spots be distinct beasts. Keep Hellephant as the highest, but replace the other two with classic contenders like Lucifoul or Squid Vicious.
