Following Bondings' request to come up with suggestions for names of new ranks, and the discussions we have had, I thought maybe we could vote on some of the names that have been suggested. If you feel that they are not really up to scratch, please tick "other" and then make further suggestions in a posting for a second voting session. Smile

Can we remove "Frihost Grand Master"?

It's a bit too long, and I am not sure it will fit in the current rank image without modifications. Which I am sure Bondings will want them to all be the same.

So if possible, remove Frihost Grand Master, and replace it with one of the others.

I don't seem to be able to edit the poll, once a reply has been made. Yours is a good point, and I'm sure Bondings would have seen it the same way as well. Let's see how people vote. I thought I would keep in the background to see how others vote, or how they feel about the poll, before I cast mine. We may have to redo it, but this is at least a start (I hope) Smile

A normal user can only modify a poll before the first vote is cast.
A mod could change it.

Personally, I'd like to see all the suggestions up there in the poll. I don't know what Bondings has the max poll option set for on this forum, but I think it is high enough to allow that.

*edit*
Here's the entire list of all ranks suggested, in the order that they first appeared:

If we put them all in one poll like that, we need the option to be able to vote for two. If we all just vote for one, then the voting results wouldn't really be accurate.

I'm not sure if that is even possible on Frihost, but it would be nice if it was right now.

It isn't possible without an upgrade to phpbb3.

We could just use the top two choices though.
I think it would have to be a featured topic in order to get the volume of votes it needs.

I could try to make a simple php script and everyone could vote there, maybe that's an idea?

Guru, Sage and Vintage sound good for increasingly high rankings. Do want.

Smartarse, Extravagant and Heavyweight sound arbitrary and ugly. Do not want.

Ace, Prime, Expert, Master etc. all sound generic and meh, but are probably serviceable.

Alien, Hardened, Copious, God and a few others could also be good starting points if you felt like putting together humorous rankings for the increasingly addicted.

You login with your frihost username and password to make sure everyone has 2 votes. For those who want to see the script:
http://rvec.frih.net/frihost.phps

If you see any mistakes please pm me.

Not sure if this is a good idea, but if everyone thinks it is we could put this in the first post and remove the poll.

Excellent idea rvec, and thanks to everyone for the positive responses. I like Ocalhoun's idea for putting all of the names to vote. I was limited as there is a limit of how many I could add, hence why I grouped some of them. Also, I wanted exactly what Ghost Rider suggested, i.e. be able to vote for two, and that had not been possible.

Rvec, I'm not so good with reading codes and script. I imagine you have incorporated all of the names Ocalhoun suggested, and we are able to vote for two. If it is OK with Ocalhoun and Ghost_Rider, please replace my post with your poll. Many thanks! Cool

PS: A last minute idea occurred when I reread Bondings' original request, would it be possible to make a vote for both the two that we like the most and the two we dislike the most?
rvec
There was a small bug, but these links all work now:
http://rvec.frih.net/dislike.php (to vote for 2 ranks you really don't like)
http://rvec.frih.net/dislike.phps (the code of the above)
http://rvec.frih.net/frihost.php (to vote for 2 ranks you really like)
http://rvec.frih.net/frihost.phps (the code for the above)

note that I removed the mysql passwords in the phps files

edit:
We might like these as well Smile

Good work Rvec!

I think we need to lock this topic, and create a new topic with the new links to vote. If possible it would be good to make it a global announcement so everyone will see it.

O.O
How did you get access to verify the passwords?

That would have really simplified other ideas I've had in the past...



Oh, and I second the idea that a link to your little voting script needs to be made into a global announcement!

You need to make sure it's very obvious which poll is for liked ranks and which one is for disliked though. People might not notice, and vote the opposite of what they want.

It tries to log into Frihost in the same way you would, and sees if it works (using the CURL library). To be honest, though, it does mean that if Rvec wanted he could just save the password of every user using his script Confused

Good thing he's a moderator, though. Nothing he can't do already <_<

The password of an admin or even Bondings would be very helpful in my future plans Twisted Evil
Nothing I can't do already Angel
But yeah that was what I also thought about, and posting the script here for all to see was the best I could think of (even though that doesn't say much).

edit: An admin could look at the script and verify it's the same as what's in the .phps files... but even then there'd be ways to get the passwords (besides just changing the file while the admin checks). Angel

Now can we set up a different thread or modify this one so people see that you set up a different poll?

Some people won't bother to read through this entire thread, and will miss where we discussed Rvec's poll.
