Actually, he said he couldn't mix icons, not have only one again:

I have tried other icons out other than stars, but they often don't look nearly as good as the stars themselves. The coins look cool, but 5 in a row looks a bit strange.

Also I can't really "mix" two types of icons ... so you can't have something like 2 coins and 3 stars as a single rating. So it has to be either all stars or all coins or whathaveyou.

So how would that work then? Say you get 1000 posts and get 5 coins, would you really want to go back to 1 star after 2000 posts and start building all over again? Let me know what you think.

How about make it tranitional like 1 flower 4 stars and the flowers replace the stars 1 at a time.

Actually I can mix them up, but it's not easy.

I have thought about putting in just one flower, but doesn't it seem like a demotion to go from 5 stars to just 1 flower? Or rather 5 of anything to just 1 of anything? Is it tricky...

Daxx, he was talking about this:

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

He means having two icons used at the same time, not two icons being used separately.



And Maybe if you made an image that looked like five icons, but was really just a single image with five icons in it, it would work. If it does, then I can easily make whatever icon sets were needed. In fact, this is how my forum works. It uses a single image that looks like five separate icons, but it really just one continuous image.

I don't follow. What is the difference between what QB said and what Cobra said?

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

I do too, but I thought it was what everyone was talking about all along.

You should explain the flowers in the part where you have the mushrooms for the Admin and the clouds for Mods.

I just noticed this...

Burrito's idea is very good down to the fine print. Nothing should be changed.

Well, there really isn't a need to. The flowers are dependent on post count, unlike the mushrooms and clouds, which don't relate to post count at all.

Does it really? I mean, if I have a handful of change and get it converted to just one note then do I feel ripped off?
Dont look at me, I'm irrelevant!

I've noticed that Krakow Sam hasn't been changing positions again. I guess we've hit yet another plateau. :-\
