I am curious if it would be possible to have the server remember the previous user-set VIP title when a member returns to VIP status after a period of inactivity?

Yes, It's a little annoying It only happened to me once though. But I think it's more hassle than what's its worth to fix unless the admins know where the line is to edit and how off the top of their heads.

My guess is that when you go up or down "ranks" there are various scripts that do wondrous things in the database. But I don't know how it's all set up to be honest.

I have been downgraded more than once for inactivity; but a quick re-intro in intro thread has me back in proper form by the next day. While I think it would be more convenient for inactivity-periods to vary according to status I don't know if the problem is common enough to alter the present system. Chances are that it is more efficient to handle related problems through requests forum, or just to have inactivated people reintroduce themselves.

I believe he means the title under your username, not the VIP level itself

Poijo, you are correct. The status is easy enough to regain by just posting in one of the forums. Retyping the personal title again is what I am inquiring about.

In that case you have a point, since when I was devalued, wait, no no, I meant reassigned, no that's not right either, reincorporated?, no, - reconstituted... (almost there) - reinstated (close enough) - my avatar was per usual.

Under name, above avatar.

Yours currently says VIP. This is the matter up for discussion.

Not getting downgraded for not posting is the main thing i miss from being a mod...

Maybe I should try to bribe moo into making a former mod category that doesn't get downgraded heh.

(BTW i'm not serious in case anyone gets the wrong impression)

i think the whole loss-of-status thing is a crock of shit, frankly. the message it sends people is "post! post! even if you have nothing meaningful to contribute! we don't care about quality of content here at ADISC, we just want you posting like a hyperactive monkey because if you're not an active contributor to the site then we HATE YOU HATE YOU HATE YOU!!"

...which doesn't exactly give our forum a warm, welcoming vibe. =/

I thought all you had to do was sign into your account every few days to get your status. Well at least I haven't seen anyone who's hung around but hasn't posted be demoted.

It happened to me I'm always on here reading but I only post when I have something interesting to say. So if I don't post for a week I get demoted.

Lately, my time here has been less than normal for me. I log in and check the boards at least every other day. Some weekends, I went over 3 days. As soon as I go over a week without posting, the system demotes me regardless of when I last visited.

On a similar note, I cannot visit the regulars forum because "long time no see".. Now I'm back to 'Newbie' status. Le Sigh.

I posted 1 week ago.

The short time span I think is a bit rediculous.

Ditto, except I go will occasionally go a week or so between logins to read messages due to various RL issues.

That's not quite what I thought when I saw the posting requirement, but mighty close. It simply sends the message to the community to post anything at all, regardless of how inane, or you lose access. Not very inviting for users who don't want to just randomly post when it doesn't add any value.
