    Avatars, reputation points, more smilies - these VB boards are capable of so much more!

    Arn, do you think you could pick select users (like mods, or big contributors like wastedtheyou) to have special avatars? That way we could easiy recognize them as people to trust.

    Yes, something like that. I don't think Avatars help that much, and nobody really pays them much attention.

    Well I am looking for someone to come online; but so far I dont think arn has come online. He is busy with MacWorld. The person who posted the latest article in the frontpage was Blake.

    P.S: Just checked:

    Yes, we also need custom titles. I want to be known as "Legendary Member" not just "Senior Member". What is this, high school?

    Believe me, if avatar were allowed most people would be remembered more by their avatar then their names. Images (for me at least) are more easily identifiable then names.

    I assume it is a server load issue. Adding avatars increases the bandwidth used, slows down the boards, and most likely makes the site cost more to run.

    The same can't be said for editable titles under your name. They just need to enable them in admin mode. It's really easy too, but I'm sure the admin has a reason for not using them.

    Right now, as it is, some people may spam just to get to 100 posts on this site. Then, after that, what's the point of spamming? You just get more post numbers, but you're still only a senior member. If we had even more ranks, people would just continue to spam until they reach whatever uber high level they want. I think it's nice right now that junior members or members may just post some useless stuff to get up to a senior member, but once they're there they can just post their opinions and stuff and not have to worry about increasing their rank.

    I'm not saying everyone spams, and I would love more ranks, but that's one of the views that could keep arn from adding more ranks. It probably keeps sites tidier and keeps some of the spam out.
