    Default User ranks

    Whats your opinion on usergroup colours?

    Whats your opinion on user bars?

    Useless? helpful? Attention whoring? Ego boosting? an achievment? The colours make the site look childish?



    Whats the point in having user bars, username colours and then sometimes on top of that a usertitle stating your status on the site?????? Is it all too much?

    Opinions? discuss.

    There's a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.

    I like the colors. I think it makes it obvious in ranks.

    I like them, it's basically like a reward for working hard. Plus the site would be dull and boring without them imo. Not childish at all, maybe different than most forums, but we have already established that we are different than 99% of the other forums out there.

    It's an a achievement imo. You show dedication to the site. Though because of ranks people started spamming not going to call names. cough*nizar*zShox*cough

    So it has it's bad and good sides to it.

    Customizations are rewards for activity. Certain characters shouldn't be allowed for they make things look dumb. The user group colors represent the groups well. The user bars for each group are represented well with the CL distinctification on the left hand just. Overall, everything is functional.

    I think the current userbars and user group colors make the forum look professional.

    Agreed, but I'm not really asking that. I'm asking if it is all needed? Is there not an unnecessary overlap with the usergroup colour and the userbar ranks? or the userbars and the user titles? etc. Are the usergroup bars or usergroup name colours needed? Are they really that helpful? Do the cons outweigh the pros?

    My argument for keeping usergroup colours would be that it helps differentiate members from staff, so that normal members can get a hold of a staff member easily. The counter argument being; that if a normal member needs a staff member they can simply view the staff list (http://www.codeleakers.com/showgroups.php). So yes there is some need, but it is not essential.

    I however don't see the point in having userbar ranks if we have usertitle ranks and/or username colours to help differentiate staff from normal members.

    Personally I couldn't care a less if I had no username colour, userbar or usertitle. But that is just me, some other staff/GA/coders, may disagree for whatever reason.. Maybe its the motivation/attention/appreciation you want/need?


    I don't know quite what I'm trying to say. So i'll just say this(in my opinion);
    -The usergroup colours make the site look childish(the usergroup legend at the bottom of the forum looks like a frigging rainbow)
    -The userbars are unnessacary (we have username colours, no need for userbars)

    I explained this very exact thing to this bonehead last year, but apparently he's still trying to push his agenda. The funny thing is, he was the one that wanted add a glow to everyone's usernames, which I had to actually explain to him was a superfluous idea that served no purpose.

    The irony in this thread hurts.
