Okay... I'll be the first to say it.

I'm not a big fan of the whole having to post every 7 days in order to maintain status as a regular or VIP.

Things happen out here in the real world... and there are going to be times where posting once a week just won't work for people.

I realise it is to emphasize activity... but could we maybe get it pushed to once a month or something? Once a week just seems too much.

To get promoted from newbie to regular, you have to have posted in the last week.
To get demoted from regular to newbie, you have to have not posted for the last two months.
I diddn't put that in the announcement, because I was trying to keep things simple.

To get promoted from regular to VIP, you have to have posted in the last week.
To get demoted from VIP to regular, you have to have not posted in the last week.

So: if you don't post for a month, you'll slip to regular but no further than that.
All you'll have to do to get VIP back is post once.
That shouldn't be hard for you to do. You're averaging almost 10 posts a day.
Even if you went away on holiday for two weeks, you'd only have to post once and wait 0-60minutes to get VIP back.

Ah... I see Moo.

It's really not a problem for me... as you have pointed out... or any of the rest of the VIPs.

I am merely speaking up for others.

But if it takes 2 months to lose regular status... that's cool. I can see that working.

Thanks for the info.

Wait... that doesn't make sense, because I have posted within the last week, yet I was still stripped. :confused:

There are also secret requirements as said in Moo's thread about this...
Yup, your right. Now, I'm really hoping this "secret" requirement is constant for all members, as opposed to varying differently. The latter way would be very bad, because Moo could just keep people he doesn't like from being VIPs on a whim.

Actually no, doesnt it automatically promote you to the vip usergroup when you meet the requirements?

Well we don't know what the secret requirement is...So it could be something that Moo has to evaluate himself...

It doesn't. An admin has to validate it to make sure you didn't cheat or anything.

For a few days, it did require my manual approval... but to be blunt, I thought that was a bad system. It required too much of my time. Plus, I felt that it would be better if the system was automatic.

So, as of today, we're back on an automatic system - VIPs are determined according to a purely numerical formula, and any regular who meets it gets promoted to VIP automatically.

You're way off.
None of those are even part of the secret formula :)

The secret formula is based on something completely different. I don't really want to say what, though, because it might cause drama or encourage people to try to play the system.

People sre always going to play the system though. It's in our blood. People try to cheat at EVERYTHING, be it sports, gambling, or becoming a VIP on a forum online.

*contemplates the secret requirement*

Hmmm... there's a few things it could be, definitely not limitless. :)

But I guess if it'd incite drama, then it's probably best not to say anyway...

Hmm... so it's a secret blend of 23 herbs and spices...

You sure you aren't Colonel Sanders?

We have to find where the lucky charms are.

Then we get the VIP gold that's hidden over the rainbow. ^_^

But looking at this, it's a decent system, I just hope it doesn't cause any trouble amongst those who USED to be VIPs and aren't now.

I can neither confirm nor deny. ;)
All I will say is that the new formula is keyboard-tappin' good.
