    Member longevity posting status coder labels should be changed.

    With regards to the labels which show coding levels of long time members (Master Coder etc..) that are seen on their post profile widget. I feel that these labels for coder status should be changed in order to provide a better acknowledgement for what they really mean.

    The intention of these labels as with other forums is to give back some kind of acknowledgement for forum longevity. However, in this case since this is a coding forum we cannot just assume that knowledge and talent is acquired mearly by post numbers or time on the forum. Using the current labels (or titles) could give a wrong impression as i am not a senior coder by any means.

    I feel that these labels need to be changed to something that reflects the users length or post count on the forum, but not talent related.

    So for example instead of Senior Coder it could be Supportive Member. or instead of Master Coder it could be Life Member. This way users are still acknowledged for their forum involvement without assuming their talent or knowledge and without passing possible wrong impressions to users.

    If someone wants to prove their talent they can always include their resume on their profile.

    Thanks.

    If a php file only has php code within it you do not need to use the closing php tag
    A good way to remember objects from arrays is you shoot objects with arrows Example: $name->id; then Arrays are $name['id'];

    It's not a terrible idea.

    Give me a full list of new member "labels" (and their corresponding existing labels), and I will review the idea further.

    Anyone else have opinions or feedback about this?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thanks but i dont have any idea what all the existing labels are or how to find them. I am also not sure if you do this by post count or not.


    Assuming there are 8 labels might i suggest something like:

    New Registered User (assuming you have a seperate level for new users until they post at least 5 times, if not then you wont need this)
    New User (for users with at least 5 posts)
    Frequent Visitor
    Regular Member
    Very Active Member
    Advanced User
    Super User
    Elite Member

    If a php file only has php code within it you do not need to use the closing php tag

    These are the current "User Titles":



    I can add more titles as needed.

    But I need more feedback from other members before I change this....

    I agree with durangod. Some of the wording could be a little more witty, in my opinion, but generally the suggestions are alright.

    witty mmmmm i agree but im sort of brain dry on that one...

    Just to toss some stuff out related to coding in no particular order.

    binary noob
    ascii normal
    cron regular
    batch member

    or maybe using storage, again just off my brain at random

    vac tube
    punch card
    tape reel
    5.25 floppy
    3.50 floppy
    hard drive
    memory stick
