Stars? We have stars?

(1/265) > >>

samwisekoi:
Yes.  GeekHack now has stars associated with various member groups and types. For the moment, we have only rolled out a few types as a trial.  More will follow.

The short version is that PURPLE stars are staff or others here to help.  GREEN stars are for vendors and other members where money is involved.  WHITE will be for non-profit/no-money sellers and service providers.

Staff

      Administrator

      based mod

      Senior Moderators

      Global Moderators

      Marketplace Moderator


or Vendors of various sorts


Non-Profit

We will add more stars over time.  (We have a dozen ready to go.)  Some will be automatic; others will be based on a member's role on GeekHack.  And a few will be for community awards.

Anyhow, we think they are a good thing.  A small minority of the 20,000+ 59,000+ GeekHack members will get a star.  A tiny fraction might get more than one.  Prize one if you get one.  Lobbying won't get you one, but helping the community flourish will help.

More information will be provided as the rollout proceeds.

TL;DR Stars are here. You want one. Be a good geekhacker and you might get one!

Announcing Elder Stars...

Upon hitting kiloposter (and multi-kiloposter) status, Elder members -- who are not otherwise star-equipped -- may select one of the following stars to officially adorn their profile:

1,000 Posts:

       Esteemed Elder Cyan

       Exquisite Elder Pink


2,000 posts:

       Elevated Elder Silver


And for the rare few who attain FIVE THOUSAND posts, the elusive:

       Exalted Elder Black


***NEW***

And for the fewer that have attained TEN THOUSAND posts:

      Elated Elder Orange


12,345 posts:

      Certified Spammer


And for that one (so far) who has a whopping 20,000 posts:

      Erudite Elder Gold



Uplevel not mandatory if desired color already attained.  No cash value.  Recipients may be asked annoying questions by lesser mortals and noobs, and are expected to answer with the grace and dignity with which they are endowed.

Note: We will not telepathically know the color you'd like, or even if you'd like one.  So if you earn and want a star, please PM an Admin or a Senior Moderator.


Edit: Added new stars and a tin of spam!

Give tp4 a brown one!

But, more clutter in the left column :( How about combining it with the online/offline icon by a user's name? Online could be star + twinkle, or something like that :D

Good idea.  I shall inquire among the PHP deities, of whom I an not a member.

Thanks!
