Default Re: More ranks...

To my fellow SF members, I'm sorry. After taking a day off(finally) I decided to work on this posting thing. I came to the conclusion that you all are closer than I thought. While I still don't agree with changing for change sake, I decided to do a little stat work on the ranks vs. posting. Here is what I found...
We have several regular posters(myself included). I decided to take these 6-10 people into consideration because while not scientific, it is obvious these people check out the site pretty consistantly. You may not need to post, but do you keep coming back and participating? So then out of the ones that keep coming back, the post avg. ranged from our leader(@ .62 per day) up to another member(11.82 per day) which equals 6.6 posts per day. Now what do with this nugget...
Knowing how often one comes to post you can then determine a rank system off of that, In the new system, it seems to be wieghed heavily towards posting everyday. By that I mean that you could put in a season worth of posting only every Sunday(at 6 posts per Sunday) to realize at season end you are just a waterboy. If you post 6.6 times a day here is when you move up in the ranks on the new system:
DP - instant
WB - in 30 days
BW - in 68 days
Starter - in 105 days
TC - in 227 days
Etc.
Now, the only question I will post in response to the ranks(cause I'll keep posting regardless cause ranks border on that tech edge I don't understand) is do we want our members to have to post 6.6 times a day for almost a year to achieve upper levels? I am concerned for two things. One, if you are like me and only post about every other day, then it takes a year and a half. Two, if you need 6.6 a day it doesn't lead to productive posts. I want our members to not feel pressured into posting to join the all stars or what not. Take some time to put thoughts into your posts. As for a year and a hlf, I am concerned that some decent members, like SGTN7 might get upset and bolt. There contributions, while brief, are huge to our sight.
Regardless of outcome, I am ready to fall into ranks. I just thought we needed some facts to our reasoning. I trust you all can adjust ranks to accomodate a fair # of posts/days ratio for our new rank system. And like BRC said, it IS better to figure it out now, than later.

I dont know dude........I think you are looking to far into this. Who cares about a ranking anyways, It is a nice touch to the site but I am not obsessed with moving up. I just post to topics that interest me and share my 2cents. If someone wants to talk football they will stay.

LOL, what kinda wuss would get discouraged or "feel pressure into posting". Are you serious? It is just for fun........I mean, when you finally reach head coach staus, you are not really the head coach. You are just some loser sitting in front of your computer posting BS 6.6 times a day.

In my opinion, I like the ranking system the way it is. If you are concerned or feel bad for SGTN7........ build her a cake or somethin.

I agree with this point. I come here everyday but seldom post. I like to read what other people have to say and sometimes put my 2 cents in. I'm not in any hurry to climb the ranks. I like it here... and Cleve recommended it so i figured that it could be all that bad.

You raise minimum wage, but then inflation kicks in and everything starts costing more. So yes you earn more an hour, but can buy less. So now, people can post more, and get less recognition. Just a question, do we not want people to reach the higher levels?
Of course we want people to reach the higher levels! The ranking system is designed to recognize the "top posters" of the forums and give them the credit they deserve. With the old system everyone was on top of the food chain! It's not something that will be changed frequently. The current system will be the foundation for the future. Although titles may change, post values will not. Please refer back to my original post in this thread to see the updated structure.

LOL!!! Ok, no I don't need a cake. And no, I'm not going to get upset and bolt. I don't go away that easy :-) I personally don't care about the ranks; I mean, it is fun to see yourself go up in the ranks - but it's not something to take so seriously. I really like this site. The majority of my posts will come during the season (which can't come fast enough LOL) however, whether I'm just reading or actually posting, this is one of my favorite sites to come to.

Anyway, that's about all I have to say too. I also like the ranking system now; I was just laughing because I had gotten demoted. It's all good though!

Whoa! Slow down. First I said I was sorry about my first reaction to the ranks. I remember before when it changed, in a couple days there was crazy posting(50+ in one day by someone). I viewed that as pressure to post. When you post: hey made that rank...:) ...we'll be at head coach in no time, etc. I think it takes away value from the site. I also don't know who reads the boards. So my thought was wow, these names I haven't seen in awhile came back, got demoted, and were upset enough to post something about it. My bad. Guess not too upset so alls okay there. I also don't care personally for my ranking, but I just posted those numbers so you could gage if you "are just some loser sitting in front of your computer posting BS 6.6 times a day." Then maybe that ranking system is/isn't fair for you. Personally, I think if you post 6 times on Sunday for a whole season, seems you should be higher than waterboy. I don't care what choices people make, just want them to be informed choices cause its about making this site as good as possible. Look at the member list at those people who joined then posted a few times and then what? What was missing? I never said I have all the answers, I'm just willing to talk about them. Geesh...relax.
