Elite Members

Post by MichaelM » Wed 6th Sep 2006

Update - The Elite Members group is inactive at the minute. Since upgrading the forum, most of the old benefits no longer apply. Sorry. :(

Now part of this forum is a little reward scheme for our "really" active members. When you get over 1000 posts, you become an elite member :D

But what does an elite member get? Well how about:

-NO adverts. At all. Anywhere. (Sorry I cant do this for everyone, but I have to pay enough for this as it is XD ) (Everyone has this now)
-Your own private forum, which no-one else can get into.
-Your own special badge, showing your new status. (The forum no longer has badges)
-50% more PM storage space.
-Flood delay time halved.
-Ability to edit your own thread title's and descriptions once they've been posted.
-Can add events to the calendar. (We don't use a calendar anymore)
-Can use basic HTML in their posts. (No longer needed with all the nice bbCodes!)

And yes, the moderators count as elite members :) (Because they're just so awesome :P )

I love your elite member button, Michelle! :wub: It's <span style='color:red'>red</span>

Yeah, I guess people shouldn't be encouraged to spam just for the sake of this shiny red button, though. I mean, seeing replies like, "K" or "O RLY" would be really annoying. XD Quality is still much much better than quantity. XD

The Image and Image buttons are your friends. Image is your friend. This guide to using images on the Web is your friend. This video about posting on forums is your BFF! I'm feeling Image

I wouldnt worry about that. In fact, it makes the threat of me resetting a members post count alot more threatening now. Thats a good thing I guess ^_^

Lufgif - lol - Ill think about it. Its definitely possible to add, but Im just worried about people accidentally deleting their posts, or deleting their post when its first in the thread (deletes the whole thread) etc. :(


Michelle - Lol - True XD
