What about play offs before promoting anybody. No relegation, smacks of ring fencing to me.Do posters have prime posting rights or is it a shared computer, do you get more points for having more than one toilet and wash basin in your house.

As a Kiwi, I'm finding it a little offensive that I have to be a 'British and Irish Lion' before I can be a World Cup Winner......  Wink

a quick post to pass the Devil's number (and yes, I do know it's not necessarily that number)

I'm with pen 15 on this, happy with the status quo. It doesn't bother me if I am rated as just a spectator or a super star. (but don't want to be an old fart!!)
If Rugby is the game they play in Heaven ..... Why does it hurt like Hell when you retire?

May I sugest making the step sizes logarithmic, thereby making each step harder to achieve?
e.g. 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, etc
or 10, 30, 100, 300, 1000, etc

I object to the 4th team being lower than the 1st team on loosehead's list. Surely the average 4th teamer will have been around much longer than any 1st team player, and this should be reflected in the ladder.

You can always check the top posters by clicking on the memberlist - top right hand corner and filtering by number of posts.

This is a perennial problem with discussion boards and a scale like this only recognizes effort. It doesn't allow for:

- recognizing those who start the most thought provoking or diverse discussions (and hence are the lifeblood of the board)
- recognizing particularly insightful or informational posts
- peer recognition for quality of debate or contribution.

So, basically, I wouldn't bother to try to tweak it. The actual number of posts is already sjhown against each member's name; it doesn't take much effort to glance at this, if it's a name you are unfamipippins apple with.

Multiply all the post levels by 10, if you want to create some targets!


unfamipippins apple = unf a m i l i a r (in case any doubt)

There are vote based systems that allow for this, I don't know if such an add on is available for this particular board system (this is the only place I have come across the software).

As a few other users have said, tweaking the rating system will only serve to encourage post w h o r i n g.
