    Default discrimination

    hey, why do I have to be "junior member", while almost all of the other users seem to be moderators. That's not fair. Just imagine, that I want to show the new forum to my girlfriend and she finds out, that I'm only a "junior" - it's a shame. What should I tell her? It's only, because I don't waste that much time hanging around here and haven't posted that many threads?

    I think you got it wrong. Look around, we are all junior member.
    We have only 2 moderators. Those people are specially assigned to help Kwun keeping the forum organize.

    There is nothing to be ashame about and there is nothing to show off. no offense.

    p/s: spend more time to figure how this new forum works.

    Default Now that we are here

    This is my shout abt things. First and foremost i really dont care whether i am Junior, senior or moderator. All i hope is that none of U moderators kick me out.

    I would want to nominate some plp from the respective regions so as to not have an EGO war going on here.

    From my observation for the past 2 yrs or so i have seen plp write from Canada,USA,Europe,HK and Singapore.

    So my nominees from the respective areas would be

    Canada- Kelvin, peter, Cooler and DON
    USA- Kwun and BBN
    Europe- Magnus the magician( i hope u have some fakes up ur sleeve)
    Hk- Cheung
    Singapore- Gladius,Mongoose and Modious

    I guess we should not have 2 many moderators. I suppose u will pick one from each region.


    What do u guys say?

    olli, please be patient, by early next week, all the old threads will be migrated over, and you will suddenly have many more posts to your credit.

    as for the "Junior Member" title, i have wanted to change those, but i haven't came up with a good name yet. let me think more. meanwhile, i will change the threshold so people will quickly move away from "Junior".

    and as Nic said, there are only two Moderators and one Administrator, there are many more regular members!

    We should come up with diff levels in term of rankings ...

    starting from junior member, member, etc etc depending on the number of posts someone makes, this may make ppl start to spam a lot but im sure the admins are just as active as most and would make sure this doesnt happen, it will also give people incentive to write more..

    These titles should be some funny things to bring a bit of humor up in here

    Yogi. it is not a bad idea. however, i think too many moderators will create a chaos.

    as for geographical distribution, right now, we have Mag, Cheung and I. Mag is from Europe, Cheung is from Asia, and I am sitting here in America.

    right now, i think 3 is the correct number (hey, i used to handle all these stuff alone), when we grow so much that we can't cope, i will surely add more.

    we will all try to serve you guys as best as we could, and i hope you trust us on that.

    i agree. they should be badminton related and interesting.

    but i haven't come up with anything yet.

    however, i did change the threshold of going from Junior Member->Member to only 10 posts. so most of us will have a "Member" title.

    and as i said, when all the post migrated over by next week, most people will have many more posts (if they stuck with their old name)

    Well Yogi, you forgot about me (Canada). I posted here a long time ago.

    About mods, there should be at least 5. Well how come the asking to be a mod was never brought up in the forms? Unless it was brought up in general forms.... I wouldn't know.

    I would sure like to be one since I come here very often.

    For the Canadian moderator. I nominate Kelvin!!! I think he is always online browsing the forum everyday..lol...j/k...
    But I do believe that Kelvin is a great candidate for a moderator because of his extensive knowledge about badminton.
    And I am NOT Kelvin..

    Zero,
    Well I don't see Kelivn that often but I did see him in the past who did pop on hear and there. About being a mod because he has knowledge, that sounds like discrimination (ohh!) hehe. Should be like you know how to take care of the forums should be the important part.

    as i have said guys. there are enough moderators already. more moderators will create chaos. so i am not going to add anymore.

    and trust me, you don't want to be a moderator, being a moderator is not fun at all.

    Well the rank will go by how many posts you have. I was a junior just turned member (10 posts). If you click the very bottom link, look there. 5625Maniac is my name in the athlonmb fourms and I'm a senior member there plus you have the juniors as well and some users have custom user user text instead. I didn't see the option when I signed up here so Kwun has that option not displayed which is good which implies it's disabled. If he made the other options which were already disasbled not to appear in there (ie. sig), that is better.

    Here is the a jpg screenshot of mine which shows the custom text I am talking about.

    You note that fully operational sigs and everything else is enabled except for the avatar. It's ok because my sig is actually is actaully my avatar from shoryuken.com but I barely go there now.

    thank you Matt, you just illustrated my point. in those links, there are more signature and general garbage than actual content!

    3/4 of the page was just unneccessary content. do you really want to visit such a forum?
