Greetings All,

As you know, we have the Karma Point System here on the board. This is "supposed" to be a relative reward system when members agree or disagree with other members. However, it does have a cash in value that so far only two members have utilized. I am going to assume that is because most of us have forgotten about what can be done with with these points. :oops: So, as Board Post Master General aka Administrator, I'm going to give out ONE freebie as a board collective.

The choices are going to be simple: Change a Rank Title, Change your Member Title or Change a Rank PIP Icon

What do either of those two changes do?

I'm glad you asked. You can make a board wide change to the posting rank title. That means that the Rank of "Postal Carrier" {100 to 249 Posts} could be changed to whatever the collective decides.

Changing your personal title to whatever, within reason, title you would like displayed below your avatar and name.

And finally, Change a PIP Icon on a Specific Rank. Currently we use playing cards for our pips per title. With each new rank you get a new card added. We can collectively decide to change ONE rank's pip icon to something other than the cards. Say stars, flowers, stamps, dollar signs, skulls, etc.

As always, the choice with the highest count wins. Of that group, the collective title or pip choice will win.

If you have additional request or want something else changed, PM me. If you have the Karma points for it, it may happen. :sparkle:

Have Fun & Happy Posting,

OK, instead of the playing cards, how about a little Oscar, or to be Sci-Fi about it, the little Invader from TZ's Invader episode?
Just a few ideas thrown out there.....

Any or all would be sweet. For icons, I think Gary's idea of the little Invader guys would be awesome.

Author:  DrMoreau [ Sat Jul 19, 2008 4:36 pm ]
Post subject: 

Changing the rank ICON would be cool. Hell, you could have an invader, robbie the robot, etc.

I should probably comment since I will be enlisted to create the new icon, which rank? Not that it matters - but he did just say one rank only. Which rank gets the lucky free change?

This is correct and yes you will, DrMoreau.

As pointed out by DrMoreau, only one rank will receive the face lift. Whether that be name or pip icon, is up to the members. Now, if anyone wants to cash in some of those lovely Karma points for other rank changes ... you have my PM info.

6 Days Left!

I want an Invader, since that's my favorite episode. As for rank, that depends on how many there are and what the titles are? Is there a rank higher than district postmaster? Maybe postmaster general, or is that reserved for PJ?

There can be only one ... Post Master General :lol: Above District is Regional Master, National Manager, National Master, etc. There are a lot to go we haven't hit yet. However, for a majority of posters, you can see what their existing rank are and that will give you a good idea of what ranks are out there currently.

At 500 you will achieve Postal Clerk. At 1000, District Post Master. etc, etc

Currently - TZ DZ Fan & Woodrow are at Regional Post Masters. Above that is National Manager and way up around 10K posts is National Post Master. I don't think we have added anything above and beyond that - of course, hard to say what has been added by Phineas, but that was the highest I employeed during board creation.

Hope it helps,

Greetings all,

Well, with only 3 votes cast, our collective winner is: Change Rank Icon. I believe the Invader from TZ is the popular icon.

Please post as to which rank will receive this upgrade or I will choose. Since you can not vote, please post. Come Sunday the 27th of July, this change will occur.

Greetings all,

OK - The Rank Icon change has been made to: Postal Clerk (500 ~ 999 posts). All new Postal clerks and current will receive this upgrade.

As always, if there are other changes you the members would like to see and have some Karma Points to spend, let me know.

I like the idea of skulls, or stars as pips.

Mr W, I love your board, many thanks.

Author:  DrMoreau [ Tue Sep 30, 2008 8:38 am ]
Post subject: 

Nice choices - now if we can get a board consensus on some pip markers, that would be great.

Currently we have: Invader, Skull, Spiro-graph, Crypt Keeper.

If anyone else would like to post suggestions, or if Mr.Z wants to state some more, that would be cool. It would be nice if all our members could participate in what kind of pip markers appear.

Merci DrM

I do like the Zone spirals, how about Eyes, like the 2 different versions from the TZ intro?

This is a really cool board, thanks for being so open to suggestions.
Hey PTE Crew, give us more options, more ideas. Its all Zone Good.

Greetings all,

So it appears that DrMoreau is not the only one desirous of changing some pips.

Currently in use: TZ Spiral, Invader, Cards, Skull, Crypt Keeper

Suggested additions: Stars, Serling, Pip, & Darth Vader.

If there are other suggestions, please state them here and if their is any recommended rank you would like to see them assigned to, that would be helpful as well.

Happy Posting & Have Fun,

Greetings Great Mr. W, you are so PTE $$$!

I have a new idea, what do you think of a General SciFi Forum here? I know we have alot of SciFi shows here, From AHP to TOL to TZ and everything in between.
This new board I propose could explore the ins and out of SciFi, such as space travel, time travel, parallel universes, robots, aliens, etc... also we could discuss the differences/similariesd of SF shows, the Physics/science of SF, the Philosophy of SF, even highlight new shows out there, or shows we do not discuss much here.etc...

And what do you think of a Fantasy Forum, or we could combine SF and Fantasy ( we could even combine Horror, or other related genres).

Zone Thanks for everything,

MrZ

MrZ



I say we start out with a thread and expand from there.
Most all big renovations need to be pushed back until after the first of the year because of board upgrades and a few other things.

Not sure what the best section for that would be though. Maybe "general television" seeing as it might deal with several shows.
Of course there are ALOT of threads in there on various shows such as "Nowhere Man" , "Jericho", "Battlestar Galactica". etc. etc.
They don't get replied too very often (or in quite a while), but they are there is you look.
There is another new show on Sci-Fi called "Sanctuary" that looks like it might be decent, but I haven't seen it yet.

Greetings All,

Just in case no one noticed, some of the rank pips have been changed.

Postal Carrier {More then 100 posts} now have "Zanti" Pips

1st Class Mail Carrier {More then 250 posts} now have "Galaxy Being" Pips

Regional Post Master {More then 2000 posts} now have an "Eye of the Beholder" pip set.

A gentle reminder for those of you wanting to spend some of those Karma points, the above are just some of the things you can do.

Have Fun & Happy Posting,

I was just wondering if anyone else gets delayed in posting. After I submit a comment, the page turns blank for a long time ( in the scheme of things, 1/2 minute or minutes is not long, yet usually I can repost in seconds ), and then I can repost.


Is this a browser issue? Or is it an issue of if I post too soon after my last post, this occurs, or is it something else? Just curious, thanks.

1. I was wondering if I could get Rod Serling heads as my pips?

2. Also, I know we get High Score points if we get high scores ( doh,lol), yet what if we get a post point for posting about our high scores?

3. Is it possible to have more than one poll in a poll. Ex: I ask " what is your favorite episode" poll, then the next poll is " Whats your 2nd favorite", etc...
Has this been done, or is it even Possible here,yet?

Thanks all for the great times, Peace
