Suggestions for membership level names
« on: January 06, 2010, 07:51:51 PM »

Mike is getting close to the next level in membership, so it is a good time to finally set membership levels relevant to spintop playing (I know a few of you care about those things, specially Mike  :P)

Instead of Newbie, it could be Finger Top, for example. Instead of Junior Member it could be Pump Top or Sidewinder.   We could also use trick names. Or just funny names (e.g. tangled member).  Currently there are 5 levels, but we could have as many as we want. Mmm, there must be good names: any suggestions? After we get enough suggestions we can have a poll.

Ok, I'll start it.

The current levels of the board are:

1 - Newbie
2 - Junior Member
3 - Full Member
4 - Gold Member
5 - Hero Member

Top names could be:

1 - Finger top
2 - Pump top
3 - Whip top
4 - Pegtop
5 - Trompo Grande

Or (adding two membership levels):

1 - Spinner
2 - Skyrocket
3 - Boomerang
4 - Corkscrew
5 - Lasso
6 - Whip
7 - Tangler

Or

1 - Spinner
2 - Revolution
3 - Tornado
4 - Vortex
5 - Maelstrom
6 - Cyclone

?

idk, I kinda like the member levels that are already in place.  Somehow it doesn't feel exciting to me to go from top to another...the tops levels feel somewhat subjective.  I want to get the the Hero level and then the Superhero Level :)

Not to be a party-pooper, but I prefer the clarity of the current level names.

Ok, the community has spoken. We'll keep the current names for the first 5 levels. I will also lower the hero member from 500 to 250 posts. At 500 will be the superhero level. At 750 ultra-hero. I hear suggestions for 1000 . . .

Excuse me by the delay.

What is the idea?

Levels for writers -my oppinion- or levels for players?

Forum level - determined by the number of posts a member has made.
