For those interested in making suggestions for making member levels that are associated to the number of posts please do so here. For example some forums have...

1-20 posts = rookie member
21-50 posts = junior member
51-100 = senior member....and so on.

We'd like to make it something NY Knicks specific....so I'll start it off.

1-20 posts = Eric Chenowith
21-40 posts = Lavor Postell
41-70 posts = Allan Houston
.
.
.
highest level = Herb Williams

Lets hear some other suggestions.

The latter suggestion is good, real good.

1-10 Fredrick Weiss, Frenchman
11-20 Eric Chenowith, 2nd rounder
21-40 Maceo Baston, Summer League Player
41-60 Michael Wright, 2nd rounder
61-80 Rick Brunson, 3rd String PG
81-100 Lavor Postell, Injured Reserve
100-120 Larry Johnson
yada
yada
500+ Earl the Pearl Monroe

Or we could go the other route

1-20 Summer League Player
21-40 2nd Round Draft Pick
41-60 1st Round Draft Pick
61-80 Rookie
81-100 IR Player
101-120 Pine Brother
121-200 Starter
201-500 All Star
500+ Team MVP

i think that having that rating system based on how many posts you have will destroy this board. If you look at other boards like espn, people are always competing to get the most posts. Because of that there is a lot of bull**** spam, which is the exact opposite of what you want on a good board. If we have a ranking system, rank it on quality of posts. possibly having other posters rank you.

I agree with Killacross - we should encourage quality, not quantity.

I do like sites where you can get an avatar though. (never had one myself).

I somewhat agree with you. This might entice people to post silly things just to increase their count. Maybe a ratings system based on when a person signed up? Maybe a combination of that and post counts?

Or as it applies to this site:
A graphical icon that represents a real person in a cyberspace system.

I like the rating idea, but not quite the way you've envisioned.

What if posters were rated by their fellow posters, say, on a 5 star system, so that way the most quality posters would end up with grades and status whereas the quacks would have 1 stars. I would probably have 4 stars in this system.

Discuss.

And what happened to the greatest Knick of all, Willis Reed. No mention, or does he stand next to God, because nobody will ever be as great.
