Hi Nolan, your icons for the number of message are very high for a dimant, I believe that this would be more interesting to have diamonds on 50 to 99, because I never had on other sites much of the commentary to the first diamond. The most I had was 189 comments. What do you think of this? Lucie bye

I have based our member levels off of another forum that I run. You will be surprised at how quickly the post count adds up. We have members here already that are almost at the "Certified Addict" mark already ;D

Maybe what we can do is have a larger variety of icons? Any suggestions?
Title: Re: Member Levels
Post by: Val on August 15, 2011, 02:59:18 AM
I'll have to see what level I'm at...  perhaps a pencil or paintbrush, an artist's beret always makes me feel like I've made a quantum leap! :heeha: I haven't been allowed to wear it lately.  :(  Must work harder... ::)   >:D

I think Val's idea of the pencil, or you could start with a rubber, then a pencil, then an artists brush, canvas, paints.. er... oh yes the obligatory beret...  :painting: painting shirt... painting pants... or have I gone too far...  :whistle:  Sounds like you have it all under control though Nolan, some great advice here, great suggestions!

I make icons and animated gifs. Is there something you want? I'll try to put it/them together for you.
It sorta goes along with my 3D computer modeling experience over the past 10 years or so.

If this will post, here's one I just finished a few weeks ago.

It posted!!!  O0

Val, I frequent another forum board that holds a bunch of us old farts that love trains and this is supposed to be an old guy 'blowing smoke' up everybody's skirt while telling stories about a model caboose he's holding.
(I could easily convert that caboose into a painting, BTW.)
In other words, he's a 'jabber jaw' that never stops talking.  :2funny:
(Very similar to myself...  ;) )

Gosh 5000 for a master artist...are you kidding me, they would have to be on the forum so much that there would be no time to paint :heeha:  when I saw the pencil by my name I thought I had made a mistake signing in and that I was  a 'pencil artist' Lol  I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to change it to Canvas :blush:
Well live and learn...so here you go one more post on my way to canvas ;)    Linda

Anki, you will find it here -- http://www.paintbasket.com/members/index.php/topic,500.0.html. (http://www.paintbasket.com/members/index.php/topic,500.0.html.) 

It has to do with the number of posts a member makes which we can see under their avitar.

You'll find lots more when you click on the FORUM button and look in "New Members Start Here".

I think we are going to have to create a whole new level on the forum reserved exclusively for Val - she has just hit 14 000 posts on the forum which is 50% more than the next chatterbox (which somehow happens to be me at 9800 posts).
