Edited by william at 09:42, 03 May 2007.

Well since the other thread got sent to the Wastelands, and my info can help soime, I have decided to post it here if that is alright.

I hope you don't mind Angelito, but it took quite some time to write out and it can be of some use to some people.

Red Stars or Quality Points

0 red stars, you need at least a quality count of -8: Disgraceful
1 red stars, you need at least a quality count of -3: Bad-mannered.
2 red stars, you need at least a quality count of -2, 0 or +2
3 red stars, you need at least a quality count of +3: Promising.
4 red stars, you need at least a quality count of +8:Responsible
5 red stars, you need at least a quality count of +15:Honorable.
6 red stars, you need at least a quality count of 25-28: Admirable

With 3 red stars you are enabled to get:

More then 20 posts in 24 hours, and no flood protect on editing your post.

8 Red stars eliminates Flood Protect.

15 Red stars allows you to rate thread.

And beyond that I do not thik there are any bonuses.

With the post count, you must have 2 yellow stars to be enabled to have a custom avatar.

Just thought I should clariffy that for you

I might classify a QP hunter as this:

A Particular member who will try and get QPs at all costs.
They will bug moderators or even Admins to get them to look at their post and perhaps give it a QP.

Moderators and admins do not hate them, they just get generally annoyed at their constant asking for QPs.

QP hunter's are not always spammers, some are pretty good poster's but there constant annoying of the moderators' and admin usually are quite annoyed, and sometimes QP hunter's get penalties instead of QP's.

I was once a QP hunter, ask any of the moderators, I usually bugged them every day if they could give me some QP's for my posts, and they didn't, so I asked more.

Then I went through my "change period" and just stopped asking for them,  because with my posts, well the good one's atleast, I eventually started getting QP's, and there wasnt a need to ask the moderators anymore, because I certainly didn't want any penalties, but the reason that people should come here is to have fun and express themselves, not just to get QPs.

I went from being a QP hunter to something better (I hope), and now the Moderators and Admins do not "dislike" me as much, well they do not get annoyed at me as much anymore because I do not constantly ask them to give me QPs.

You shouldn't be a QP hunter KD, but you shouldn't be a person hunting for Penalties either, because that is wors.e

Just be yourself and have a good time here, enjoy yourself and chill out.

Yellow Stars or Post Count

Here are the Yellow star ranks (post count):

Less than 20 posts: No yellow stars. Rank: Tavern Dweller
21 posts: 1 yellow star. Rank: Hired Hero
51 posts: 2 yellow stars. Rank: Adventuring Hero
121 posts: 3 yellow stars. Rank: Known Hero
301 posts: 4 yellow stars. Rank: Famous Hero
801 posts: 5 yellow stars. Rank: Supreme Hero.
2001 posts: 6 yellow stars. Rank: Legendary Hero.

Ok now onto Moderators:

Moderators

Moderators usually are like admins, but with far less power.
What I mean by that is that they cannot do as much as an admin can, but they can do quite alot like:
Move threads to other more suitable forums
Hand out Penalties and QPs (they can only hand out QPs in the forums they moderate, but they can hand out Penalties in any forum they want)
They can make threads and posts in the Mod HQ (a forum where only Moderators and the Admin can discuss things without being barraged by questions by members)
They can lock and delete threads
They have no flood protect, they can also rate particular threads

Moderators basically get all what the QPs award things have for example:

they can make more then 20 posts in 24 hours
they have no flood protect when editing posts
They have no flood protect at all
they have the ability to rate threads

When you become a Moderator, you lose your yellow and red stars, but not permanently, when you become a member again you wil lregain your yellow stars and Red stars, and probably gain some extra red stars aswell.

When you become a Moderator you may get an avatar like this for example:



A shielded avatar, and your rank will change to this:



With the admin, it is the same, except with the rank image thing, it will have administrator instead of Moderator.

Member's may not apply to be Administrators, only Moderators.

So basically, an Admin is a Moderator of every forum but since they are admin they can do anything, shut the forum down for example, or much much more.

If you want to become a Moderator, just apply to be one, by looking in the FAQ and answering the questions that it provides, well they are not questions as such but yeah.

I might add more later into this post, explaining everything a little better when I have time


Thanks

Just hit "new topic" and then create a new thread.

Maybe you should also read the FAQ.

It is all written in the FAQ.

You can get red stars by making quality posts, and you can get yellow stars for posting.

Because one of our wise moderators closed it, since there are enough threads like this, for example the one Elvin linked to.

In the FAQ, at the very bottom, is the lost password option.

Click that, and hopefully it might tell you exactly what your password is via email.

Maybe you are misspelling it or something
