New Member Appreciation

Post by A Lotta Moms on Wed Jan 04, 2017 6:02 am

Hey, we just wanted to drop a topic thanking our prolific new members for being so active in discussion and keeping things lively and bustling around here over the holidays! So many interesting and thoughtful new topics, too.  ZeGermanArthurFan, CoyoteMao, The Decimator, InCorrect, OmegaVenomous, etc.  

In addition to the usual admins and mods, it seems that a few of our regulars seem to be away for the moment, so it's always good to have an influx of new activity in the meantime.  Rest assured, the Slumlords are still watching and have every intention of making our return in short order!

So again, hey, glad to have ya! cheers

You know, we've long discussed creating some sort of a monthly/bi-weekly award system or something, in addition to our promotion system around here.  Count this topic as a medal for all of our enthusiastic new members.  Smile  The closest thing we have is the special user rank system, which differs a little from most other forums.  Here's how it works:

You can obtain a special rank and color if you do one of the following things:

1.  Reach 1,000 posts.  It doesn't matter how you do this, even if you spam the heck out of the Merry Christmas or "whyd fanfiction delete me" topics.  At that point, you'll be able to pick your rank title and color, and change it whenever you like.
2.  Persistently do something overwhelmingly strange and outrageous, for better or for worse.  This is actually how some members got their ranks before hitting the 1,000 post mark, such as Kerry, Apricot Jack or Arthur 2014 2.  This is pretty random and admittedly arbitrary, and usually happens when the odd characteristic is part of the user's innate personality rather than a deliberate effort.  The downside is that the rank and color assigned are entirely up to Slums administration, and can only change once that user reaches 1,000 posts.  
3.  Win a forum game such as Wheel of Compson! or Guess That Bunny!
4.  Become a moderator or administrator.  Admittedly, we've had those positions closed for ages, just because the Slums is very lightly moderated and only needs a few dedicated leaders.
5.  Get banned, and don a lovely pale turquoise color for the rest of eternity or until the ban is lifted.

I should note that some of our most insightful and devoted members who we greatly appreciate and have been around forever still have normal ranks just due to having yet to reach the 1,000 post mark.  In fact, it's probably due time to create some sort of senior member rank for them to show gratitude for the many years of Slumservice.
