Re: Rankings

IKR. Lots of ranks to look forward to!

 

It's funny, you'll never see those lurker ranks on a board because as soon as a lurker posts, they become a New Poster. Cat Happy

Re: Rankings

So I was looking for information about how to change the channels on an Xfinity router to help a clueless person who has Xfinity, and I found the Xfinity board, and they have this to mark their forum experts (Champions):

Every time an "XFINITY Forum Expert" posts, this shows up under the text of their post.  I thought this was pretty cool, if a bit on the biggish side.  It would be nice if we could have something like this to mark the experts on this community, because if I post 35 inane posts every day,pretty soon I'll have a higher rank than people like @BirdDog or @Gwalk900.  And that's just not right.

Thank you, GWalk! (Check's in the mail). Smiley Very Happy

 

I think though that there are people here who are actual experts.  The real McCoy.  You know who you are, and you all know about the system, about networking, about the ins and outs and ups and downs, beams, maps, tests, routers,gizmos, doodads, and all of that. There ought to be something that brands you as experts, so users can easily see who they're interacting with and what level of authority and expertise to expect.   A badge like Xfinity uses would be very useful, I think, especially when given by the system every time an expert posts. (I also liked that the badge clarifies that the person is not an employee -- we often have that slight misunderstanding here).

That's interesting.  I do think, though, that they should at least have the description of the site (Customer to Customer Solutions) be a little more visible when one comes to the site.  You can see that description as a title of the page by your address bar, but nowhere on the home page itself, unless I'm simply missing it.  It's alluded to in the "Announcements", but it should be more plainly visible.  

 

As for the rankings, Liz alluded to it taking more than just the number of posts to increase in rank.  I have yet to see evidnece of this, as there are examples of rank increasing on post count alone, not the content of the posts.  Perhaps it has changed, as of today, due to this new info.  I certainly hope so, as if it hasn't, you are correct....that's just not right.

YES!  The new dynamic is not very clear as yet.  The info on the home page (https://community.hughesnet.com/) is:

The info is there, but it's a tad vaguely expressed.
