    SPF rating proposal - sort of OT

    Just an idea since we call female players elite unique. what if we have a rating system, everyone can apply for a rating.

    because of rarity, female players get base rating from exceptional unique.

    male players start from normal.

    I suggest rating: normal, exceptional, elite, normal unique, exceptional unique, elite unique. And for special players, a special reward rating - Class specified elite unique, anyone with this rating would have a class his/her own in SPF (eg. I vote NightFish).

    Who should I apply to?
    we could vote a judge to handle the applications. he/she must know the history of SPFers well and has a good rating him/herself. AE may do well. He/she can also has assistant/s.

    How does the rating work?
    the rating is based on helpfulness of SPFer and reputation in SPF, not number of posts. Females start at higher rating because they are so rare, unfair for male, but ...

    What do you think?

    Ok seriously, i don't think this is neccessary. All SPF members are pretty helpful and do not need thinks like this to tell people how helpful they actually are :)

    that's not what I was meant to. I was thinking since females get "elite uinq" here, what about our males? We should have a respectable title as well, most of us will not be elite, but normal or exceptional uniq should be fine. sure females are so rare, but really great male like NF, Borlag, and others are rare as well.

    And how would this be decided? I know some have high opinons of particular members here whilst others care little for these members, how do you address a problem like that?

    The opionion one have of a person is earned not granted :p

    yea, this is a bad idea. it would prove nothing, would prove our elitism, and would be unfair to some people to say they are not as good as someone else.

    I think it would be very useful to have trade ratings, similar to the ratings for sellers and buyers on E-Bay. Has this been tried or discussed before?

    i think its been discussed kremtok, but its impossible to implement. it would require a whole extra thing to the forums, whcih vbulletin (who make / design these forums and many others) dont have that in there normal packages, so it woudl cost extra probably to make. and it could be abussed easily.

    the best way to find out if a person is reliable to trade with is IMO to ask others on the forum or maybe send a PM to AE

    Bad move. If it ever gets implemented, I *insist* on being a cracked sash!

    Any ranking systems just would cause so much hassle and problems, maybe flaming too. And how we would maintain that system?

    If you are a good guy you will gain respect of other without any titles. As you can see in real life too, some guys with "high-end titles" are hated by many of those who don't have any, bringing the same system here won't do any good

    I hope I didn't sound harsh, I just wanted to say the way our forum works now is just fine :)

    deathmaster one of the reasons we once started to use that term for the females here is that they are so rare and special.

    now how rare is a few boys among boys?

    not much

    besides titels often bring harm and elitism. same thing with why i think postcounts should be removed.

    why?

    because it really dont show a thing.

    you could have 1 post but know all about the game and you can have 10k posts and just post spam.

    all members here are worth the same new and old.

    its not the number of posts that counts its the meaning of the posts that counts.

    I agree with everything already said. I think it'd be too much work, which would yield negative results.
