Forum Flairs

Hey all!

We're currently looking in to implementing a "Flair" system here on the forums. The idea is that as you receive Points (from e.g. Likes, Awesomes, Badges) and as you gain more you progress through the ranks (Uncommon Survivor, Rare Survivor... etc). These different Ranks can have different permissions, and the system will work as an incentive system for positive and frutiful community contribution.

This thread can work as a discussion thread for if you have any ideas or feedback on how to implement this (shoutout @TheLostOnes as it was his suggestion a while back that started this). Also, the system will require some testing and tweaking, so if you see weird notifications and changes to your forum profile, don't worry, it's just this. :)

Cheers,
- TCZ

    What kind of permissions should that be?

    They're not necessary, but if e.g. this thread comes up with some cool ideas, I'll gladly take any feedback on board.

    But here's one suggestion: if your forum name rhymes with @sminvader you should only be allowed to open one new thread per day. o:)

    Even though this was a comment in jest, one key part of this is that Rule #6 (don't abuse the reputation system) will be enforced more heavily. Also, the framework for the points/rank/reputation system will be laid out in clear terms for all to see. :)

    I can't see a need installing a rank system.
    What should become better?
    Fun - works, strategy help - works too, ingame problems and players wishes - it's on NG to react.
    No rank would change this.

    On second thought, moving this to Off-Topic as it's more a meta discussion rather than one concerning the games. See you over there.

    Pls give them a new reaction button when you implementing Rank System. I bored enough with this 'limited edition' reaction button now >:)

    PS: Where's our new badge? You promised couple weeks ago, but no further update after that @Teeceezy

    Yeah, new reaction buttons could be a part of this.

    As for the badge, with Easter etc it's been delayed but it'll be claimable once the check-in threads have been closed on Friday.

    Uhm... I like the idea, not sure about what kind of "permissions"...i'm only worried about a fight here in the forum and guild/clans/group of friends disagreeing forum users only to be at the top of the ranks... :/

    Instead i consider you have to think about individual rewards for guild ranking system in challenges...this will help and imprive guild game and fun. Many players will start playing for the reward and not just to reach min stars lvl to stay in the guild...

    @capibara Yup, like I mentioned above, Rule #6 is in place in order to prevent abusive disagrees. Disagrees, however, don't affect anyones points, as it's a highly subjective reaction to give a certain post or comment.

    Thanks for your suggestion, I'll be sure to pass it on. Let's keep this thread about this subject, though. Thanks.
