The main reason I dislike this is because I only like posting on thread that I see are worthwhile, and hardly any of those exist on GTF nowadays.

Okay you got the system down but like I argued yesterday and 2 days ago, I don’t see a reason why Tier II and III exist or Tier V+ because it’s just a plain tag that is equal to Tier I, why not just have Tier I and Tier IV only because they are the only tiers that actually bring a reward for forum activity and pariticipation on the forum?

I’m sorry to say but nowadays people WANT SOMETHING IN RETURN for doing something even if it was just posting on the forum because this is how the current world mindset goes! “If I don’t hain anything from doing something then why should I do it”
and that’s how things are unfortunately and we should cooperate with those changes, having a reward system for each Tier and if this is not possible to achieve then delete Tier II III and V+ because they have no true use

One tier could give members the ability to choose their own, uh, what's it called? The place under your profile picture that has a few words. Whatever it's called, a certain tier can give members access to that.

(Title? Is that what it's called? Probably not.)

Petre might be onto something here...
Tier 1 : User Title
Tier 2 : More space for signatures? (I know some people somehow still have signatures that are TRIPLE the space limit)
Tier 3 : maybe a custom banner under profile pictures that ISN'T MotM/Mafia Rank?

Those tiers can be good incentive to post more on the forum as people become more unique on it? Then Tier 4 is obviously Discord colours but by the time they're tier 4 they'd also be attached to the bonuses they have won for the forum so will feel less inclined to leave once they have their colour.

Tier 4 could be a basic suite of colours to choose from (Red, Green, Orange, White, etc)

Tier 5 could be the expanded colours based off hex code? (That way people can choose a niche colour for doing so well and hitting rank 5)

Tier 1 is for all basic bitches so no perks for them.
A custom signsture length for 2 and a custom user title for 3 do sound good to me. I dont like the idea of ‘earning’ ‘better’ colours though. I feel like all colours should be unlocked sg the same rank, as there would otherwise be no incentive for some people to reach t5, as their colour is already in t4. T5 deserved sth special, and so does t6. Do note that from now on we’ll be checking spamminess as to prevent people from spamming their way to the top. We will also do weighed posts soon, in the sencr that posts below xx characters count as 1 post, but above xx as 2. But peter and corey, with your suggestions the perks for tier 2 and 3 are set (if it were up to me, ive ofc gotta discuss this with the rest of the modteam).

Maybe for tier 5 then we could do the custom profile banner? Seeing as they're pretty special already (Seeing as it's only MotM and Mafia) having a tier that gives that could be seen as an extra special privilege given that the banners already ARE a special privilege?

New addition:

  • Activity Tier progress bars - These give you an easy way to visually see your (and others') progress to the next tier. Hover over them for the same information in numbers.

    Note that your progress will drop as posts you made 2 weeks ago drop out of consideration; the progress bar will also give you an easy way to see if you're about to drop down a tier, since that happens when your progress on the bar drops below zero.

    To avoid that happening, just keep posting regularly, and note that it's easier to maintain a consistent tier level by making a few posts each day rather than waiting 2 weeks and then having to suddenly make a lot more :D

Also, they give you something to work toward that may seem less out of reach. I don't imagine it would be very encouraging for a new member to see after registering that to reach (what is now) Tier IV they'd need to make 28 posts. Much more encouraging for them to see they have to make 7 to reach the next tier, which is actually something that seems doable after you register. And then it's just 7 more to reach Tier III. And then 14 to reach Tier IV, and they'll only see a number higher than 7 after they've already got into posting by making over a dozen posts.

And we do want to encourage people to make more than the 2 posts per day required for Tier IV, since that really isn't a lot :P which is why we do reward people with higher numbers for making more posts. Of course we're adding more perks, but people like higher numbers anyway, so in this way, tiers without any perks still serve a purpose.

Custom title :)

That seems like a good idea! I'm not sure if this is how you intended it, but I think maybe the best thing would be to just restrict the ability to get a new custom title (either a change or a whole new one for someone who didn't have one before) to people in a certain tier, since there are a lot of old members with funny or interesting titles who are no longer (very) active and I think those still serve a purpose, particularly when reading old posts. That way you also don't lose it when you temporarily drop below the required tier.

And thanks everyone who's made further suggestions for perks! This is exactly the kind of feedback we were hoping for. :keke:

I think its working really well. I'm surprised none of us thought about something like this pre-Discord.

I do think the "like" system did reduce the need to post a little bit too, so that balances that out.
