Raing star things
« on: June 20, 2006, 11:19:40 am »
Just thought i'd float an idea;

Now, the star things go

(0-99)
(100-249)
(250-499)
(500-999)
(1000+)

And after 1000 they no longer change, whick sucks slightly; what I propose is a system, whereby the stars are gradually replaced by something else, eg:

:)(1000-1999)
:):)(2000-3999)
:):):)(4000-7999)
:):):):)(8000-15999)
:):):):):)(16000+)

(the smileys are just a placeholder, I dont expect them to be used in this for real)

I don't know if this is possible, or if steve has enough time, I'm just floating this idea on the chance that it is and he does, plus I thought it was a cool idea ;D

tl;dr. But with all those shiny symbols and numbers it's probably awsome.

If anything, the other thing should come first, and the stars after, since the stars rule.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

maybe keep the stars, but just change the colours of them?

Nice idea. I also vote that below 100 posts you should get nothing.

100 posts - 1 bronze star
250 posts - 2 bronze stars
500 posts - 3 bronze stars
750 posts - 4 bronze stars
1000 posts - 5 bronze stars
1250 posts - 1 silver star, 4 bronze
1500 posts - 2 silver stars, 3 bronze
1750 posts - 3 silver stars, 2 bronze
2000 posts - 4 silver stars, 1 bronze
2500 posts - 5 silver stars
3000 posts - 1 gold star, 4 silver
3500 posts - 2 gold stars, 3 silver
4000 posts - 3 gold stars, 2 silver
4500 posts - 4 gold stars, 1 silver
5000 posts, 5 gold stars

For my two cents, we have mario coins made of different metals. Here's an example, but imagine it not spinning:


100- 1 bronze mario coin
150- 2
225- 3
375- 4
500- 5
700- 4 bronze coins, one silver
850- 3, 2 (You can see the pattern from here)
1000- 2,3
Etc

I am all for the encouraging of massive post counts by making cool shineys that you earn when you get to insane numbers of posts.
