Member levels

It appears once you reach about 500 posts you are a God member.  Is there anyway to monkey with that stuff?  For instance, maybe SuperNova at 1000 and Galaxy at 1500.  Something like that.

Absolutely. There are "number of post"-dependent groups like God member and then there are non-post dependent groups like Founder of Hocomania. (Sorry folks, that group is full up!).

We can add as many groups as we like from what I can tell. Come up with what you want and it should be easy to implement. As long as the Boss doesn't mind, of course.  

[edit] We should do 750 too since tmeri and ataloss just crossed that line.[/edit]

One of the nicest things about intercst is that he's very amenable to weird suggestions.  But as galeno used to say, you really have to be weird to be FIREd.

Can we have things like Goon, Head Goon, Stinky, etc?

OMG.  Shades of dory and the dryer sheet stuff.  That would be wonderful.  However, it would have to be levels of gooniness/stinkiness.  You couldn't have Head Goon, because that can be only one person.  However Honcho Goon level might work, and our many Texans might like that.

In response to tashina about a 750 level - sure , why not?  It's not like we're going to get dinged by anyone (important).

Wannabe Goon, Goon 1st level, Goon second level, Goon, Honcho Goon, Stinky Level 1, etc.

I don't know if we can go all Goon with this. What about non-hocomania members of the site? We might have to start the new groups at over 300 or so just to avoid any non-Goons.  :)

That's true. ?We don't want to annoy the non-hocus fans. ?The top half of the board is for real.

It's hard to work things into a god structure, though tashina might want to may 2000 posts a witch. ?:D

Anyway (I first said anyhoo, but remembered just in time tmeri doesn't like it), what do people think?

Could do a food chain - start with minnows, mice , eggs, whatever. ?Ending with killer whales, grizzleys, eagles.

Or works of art - The 2000 post could be The Scream ?:D. ?Maybe lowest level be Dogs playing Poker (does Lupo enjoy poker?).

Oh, someone else think. ?My brain is still mush.

Huh? What are you talking about?

I like the hocomania theme better. Maybe leave the stuff up through "Senior Member" alone. Then do "Little Stinker" at 500, "Hocus Wrangler" at 1000, and "Greaney Goon" at 2000. I really don't think we should hand out "Little Stinker", "Hocus Wrangler" or "Greaney Goon" to just anyone. ;)

Wasn't there a character on some sitcom, something like Leave it to Beaver, whose nickname was Stinky? What am I trying to recall?

What about Hot Goons? Or maybe Stinking Hot Goons? I'd hate for that "hot" adjective to escape scrutiny.

Hot Stinking Skunk sounds doable for me.

I also feel attracted to hierarchical orders like LayGoon, Reverend Goon, GrandGoon, ArchGoon
all the way up to SupremeGogoon and beyond.

I am just happy that my 51st post finally got me out of the Newbie catagory.  Even as a Newbie, I was about 50th or so on the posting list.  Lots of silent lurkers out there.

Cheers,

Whoops! I just checked the list.  I am 25th, not 50th.  Small gene pool?!?!?

Far too much interbreeding. I think that much would be fair to say.
