Gods and Zealots

Postby annis » Tue Jul 22, 2003 12:33 pm

I've noticed that as I post to forum, I keep getting advanced to a higher state of being. Recently apotheosized, I am currently a "Textkit God" and I assume that my next stage of advancement is going to be "Textkit Zealot." A curious inversion, there.<br /><br />I feel like I'm living the Hypostasis of the Archons or something.<br /><br />Jeff, can you change the stanges to something silly and Neo-Platonic or Gnostic? :)

I'm always redefining the membership levels as forum particpation grows. Otherwise, we would all be neophytes.<br /><br />I removed 'god' and changed it to zealot since its somewhat Greek (although a bit biblical too)<br /><br />I really need some suggestions for some clever Textkit forum member levels. Levels that are both unique and easily understood.<br /><br />Suggestions anyone?<br /><br />

Hey Jeff,<br /><br />One that comes to mind immediately is 'archon'. Is it already being used?<br /><br />Cordially,<br /><br />Paul

archon is pretty good, but what other levels can you suggest? I having trouble coming up with something clever and consistent for the following levels:<br /><br />new comer<br />not very active participant<br />somewhat active participant<br />active participant<br />really, really active particpant<br /><br />thanks,]<br />jeff

that's the tricky part. I need membership levels that are clearly understood by everyone OR perhaps some sort of key might be a good idea - learning is what we're all here for anyways.<br /><br />jeff

[quote author=jeff link=board=6;threadid=286;start=0#1820 date=1058905749]<br /> - learning is what we're all here for anyways.<br /><br /> [/quote]<br />So why worry about different levels of membership. I am clasified as a Textkit fan. I quess I am because it is a great tool for learning. Someone called a neophyte may be very proficient in the Greek (or Latin) language (which I am not!) but appears somehow to be an a "lower" level of membership.<br />Of couse if there are actual differences in membership it should be indicated, ie. Moderater, administrator etc.<br />

Would it be possible to have two different series, one in Latin and one in Greek, depending on the thread?

I thought it would probably be too complicated, if not downright impossible, but my ignorance of these matters is bottomless.

not impossible - but complicated. This mostly stems from the fact that i didn't write this forum script so I actaually have very little knowledge about how it works.<br /><br />I'm sure the authors of this script could add this feature with little trouble.<br /><br />thanks again,<br />jeff
