One thing I would love to see removed is the status given to people who take time to post a lot and which also copies the spiritual forums.

seeker, experiencer etc.  it just looks odd and I think just putting up how many posts is enough really.

No-one likes to be labelled as such due to time putting up posts and it would be good to move away from ego based tags or reward systems  :o

anyone else agree?

I agree. I don't mind the labels as I don't pay too much attention to them, and I don't believe them to be accurate. If someone posts 50 posts just saying "hello" or asking questions or whatever instead of giving answers, how can they be experienced?

If we are going to have statuses (is that a word..?), then they should be based on something other than the amount of posts we make.

Just my thoughts lol...

Love,
Tiff xxxx

Thanks Guys,

I think titles such as 'Founder', 'Administrator', 'Moderater' and 'Member' are needed and the number of posts they have made should be listed, but 'experiencer' etc isn't necessary.

Hahaha!!
I agree with you Shepherd. To me it does not matter tand thats why I have them there. Mainly because I think other people want them there.

I also changed the titles of Staff because people often live up to their roles. (Stanford Prison experiment) So I figured if titles are important to people I will use other ones.

On the other hand when you deal with some childish poster you might want to see their history to get some background. An old poster might be having a bad day and its forgivable. You will only know that when you can see his history.

I agree Bugeye that staff titles are needed to distinguish between members and and staff etc and as Eugene points out the stanford experiment shows titles do matter.

Princess Tiff makes a good point that people basically could post a load of old childish rubbish and end up with a label of experiencer or even sage which isnt an accurate title at all and could confuse new members.

Its lovely to be on this site because it is different from spiritual forums but it would be good if this sort of stuff could be left behind as it made no sense in the first place.

Maybe a poll to see who wants them?


Title: Re: RE: status removal
Post by: bugeye on July 16, 2009, 01:37:07 am
Just call them staff so members can see.

Ok I made it easy.

Every member has TWO votes and you may change your votes afterwards as the conversation continues and more things come to light.

I set it up so we go through the Hierarchy in short space and then we are all the same  ;D That way we can still filter out new people.

We often think the world thinks like us when they don't. There are the ateitst and theorists and the debunkers and "faith stealers." I like to think that the titles matter more to the less self actualized people and thus it will influence them to behave while they get the feel of our "house"

Little things like this don't bother me and to tell you the truth I didn''t even notice the tittles  Huh? uglustupid2 but
If we are going to be this petty   Sad does it even matter how many posts we have done also

I thinks thats unfair to say about this being petty since this is a suggestion thread and I suggested something about status's which i my view isnt necessary and is just confusing for new members. It also harks back to spiritual forums which if this is going to be the same then whats the point of being here as well?

The whole point to a suggestion thread is for suggestions to help evolve the site and make it more user friendly.  If suggestions are going to be called petty then thats not going to quite help is it.  buck2

True.

I don't think its a big thing Ann. I mean I dont think its really something that sticks sideways in a mans ego but it is worth mentioning. If you keep in mind that this is public and you get all kinds, then someone is bound to come up with something you never thought about.

Great suggestion Sheppard,

i think it is good to express what people felt.
i am for the removal of such reward systems. anybody want to know about the author, they can go to the profile and find out.

my vote for the removal of reward systems

I like the energy here better than spiritual forum- and I haven't been  back there  Angry

there was to much nit picking and back stabing and I thought this would be different

Well they do say " be the change you wish to see in the world " as it really does start at home.  O0

The site is much easier on the eye and with suggestions coming from new users like myself or regular members the site can keep on evolving.  With more members coming on board its also a good idea to monitor your own expectations before voicing disappointment at how people conduct themselves.  I remember one site where there was a holier than thou attitude with very regimented rules and beliefs which just meant people were ostracised or criticized for apparently breaking boundaries. Which created a false, stuffy place where passion and interest were often mistaken for rudeness and it would be a shame for that to happen here. 

Spirituality in my eyes is about unlimited freedom.  The problem isnt what happens on the site with members...its how we percieve what they did in our heads.

It's heartwarming to read your comments about this Forum. Thank you. smitten

I do think with less pressure from the rules department people feel more free to be themselves and in being themselves an intimacy develops. A closeness that you cannot have when you are pretentious because the rules demand that. People begin to wonder if the frienlyness they receive from fellow members are really sincere or whether it is because the rules demand it.

I must say I felt the same as Eugene when I read back through all the posts on here just now...............

It was nice to feel as though you are being appreciated sometimes .......................

All the staff and members here are very much like a family................that just keeps ongoing...............

Whenever someone new joins I do try and say "Welcome to the family" or words to that effect .........

As for the titles.........................mmmmmmmm

I also agree with Bugeye. I think it is good to distinguish between administration / staff, moderators and members, but I don't think we need the experiencer, student, and so forth. I really did not mind them, either, though, so can take it or leave it.

The head cheese is Bugeye.  ;D

Sorry we only have one. We must get more. Anyone up for becomming a members guide?

In the meantime I need more voters. I think I will let this thing run a bit before I change anythting in the titles. Right now I think I must speed it up. Thus for arguments sake say you can work yourself up from new to the ultimate title in 200 posts and after that we all have the same title.So grand guides and super grand guides are out. But that is NOW.


Title: Re: RE: status removal
Post by: bugeye on July 17, 2009, 10:55:55 am
It's Mr. Cheese Head please. Heheheheheh.

I was just reflecting on my days studying martial arts. We has the Dans and blackbelts in the first row then red, blue, green, yellow etc so the beginners were at the back of the class.

The thing is, the next belt up inspired us to train harder and a sence of acheivment was felt as we obtained the goal.

There was a rank system but not a power based status quo, for the grand master himself would address a white belt as 'sir'.

If the system of rank inspires members to post, I'm all for it. There is no problem with 'status quo' because all are equal people.

So I'm in favour of ranking, because it might inspire people to post more, and personally I just consider all people equal so have no issue with 'rank and power'.

Hi Bugeye, I must admit I dont know anyone who has added more posts to just get a better status. Wouldnt that just get people creatings posts just for the sake of it which just means the quality of posts go down??  I would def stop all notifications on a thread if that were the case as people would just put OK..I AGREE.. or some other short term which would add to their numbers.  I like notifications because they may be of interest that someone has put up a valuable comment to the topic.

Do members need a reward system for posting??  Personally I doubt it, but thats just me. 

A system which rewards people for posting lots on the site with statuses which imply greater spiritual wisdom doesnt make sense. 


Title: Re: RE: status removal
Post by: bugeye on July 17, 2009, 12:03:46 pm
Not particularly fussed about the rank and file. I remember when I first joined forums I was pleasently surprised to find I was given a new title.

I only think it is important to say who is admin, mod or staff, so members can easily see.

All the forums I visit have a ranking system - why do you think that is?

How is the ranking measured on these other forums?  ( i checked out 6 other forums just now and only 2 have ranking labels )

Does anyone think that the more posts they deliver then they should be rewarded with labels which depict levels of wisdom?

If the poll says that they do then fair enough  :P

I visit SF, Philosophy forums and a couple of math/science ones.They have ranking systems.

The best one is the Philosophy forum where you can havr a rank assigned or choose your own title. I'm esteemed as "Profester" on philosophy forum Heheheheh.

May be we could just rank ourselves if we wish - some very funny ranks there at PF.

Well hello Mr Head Cheese Bugeye (Sir)

Ok so ye are not the "child" I first called ye ha ha.  I just like to be one that know's who one goes to if one gets and "off" PM.  I have had some really sick one's on other sites.  I be wary of sites.  I now Mr E66 from another place so I feel safe here.  Being empthic I be very wary at times.

Too I not be one to complain unless I fear that other's might be harmed. I know the way I talk be open season at times to one's and I be fine there, it is me take me or leave me matters really little to me.

3 yes and 5 no when you cancel them out they equal . 3 happy medium and 2 no's

Now we already have 3 happy mediums so we can say we have 6 happy mediums and 2 no's so far.

So far it seems the happy mediums have it more or less. Anyone else want to take a stab at the math?  ;D

Yeah HH I think I have got what forums members do on a forum, what I was pointing out was that people could be posting for the sake of it which would mean any old nonsense being posted just to feed the need to have a better status. I have seen plenty of threads in others forums where some people do that and it makes for dull reading and in the end the forum suffers as people switch off.  Blimey...I didnt realise that a simple suggestion would be such a hot topic!  a1m


Title: Re: RE: status removal
Post by: bugeye on July 18, 2009, 10:02:48 pm
I remember on Philosophy forum there was a notice sent to our PM boxes asking members to make a single post, because some members were breaking their posts into 3 or 4 consecutive ones - just to gain a higher rank. Ranking probably does inspire more posts of lower quality - I've seen it happen.

I think the term "newbie" is kinda belittling too and 'newbies' might try to post alot of low quality posts. "New Member" is better I think - "wonderful new and treasured member".

Now listen you guys - Please address me as 'pro-fester Cheese Head' which is my correct title!

I think staff should be indicated for easy reference and two ranks like NEW and EXPERIENCED. The NEWs can ask the EXPERIENCED for forum advise and EXPERIENCED can be welcoming to the NEWs.

No status or power - just convenience.

The thing is, some might see status quo and be obsessed about it, but it is also obsessive to be strongly "Against".

Just be neutral and clear minded and think about what is practical. Certainly enforcing one's own 'anti rank' philosophy is a act of power in itself. (Not personal to you Shepherd - just a general statement)

Ye be Mr Head Cheese....if ye please. Like there be a Mr E66 the way I will choose to show due respects.  Call me old fashion.

New spirit for 20 posts so we can remember to make the newbies feel welcome. (I am going to remove postcounts too as soon as I can find it.)


Title: Re: RE: status removal
Post by: Traveller on July 20, 2009, 04:34:17 am
I don't think we need to remove post counts. I personally think the "welcome new spirit" and "spirit" is enough. Why do you feel they should be removed?


Title: Re: RE: status removal
Post by: Eugene66 on July 20, 2009, 04:50:14 am

When there is no post count then there is nothing. When it is there then people have things to feel good or bad about and we can have discussions on it forever. That is not good.

Me too, and thanks Shepherd. I really appreciate how your opening the thread has been very constructive for the forum. Thanks.

Hi Eugene,

I have a couple of thoughts, If it only takes 20 posts then a 'new spirit' becomes 'spirit' in just one day. The purpose as I see it is 'Spirits' are aware that a member is new so as to assist with forum functions etc, so a New Spirit should remain 'new' for say 2 or 3 weeks.

I think post counts should remain because 'new spirits' can ask the more experienced members for advise.

I think we should have 'Founder' 'admin' 'moderator' titles so members can easily see who is staff by merely looking at the avatar.

In short - indicate staff - keep post count - "new spirits" take 250 posts before becoming "spirits". In this way maximum information is available to members.

What do you think peeps?


Title: Re: RE: status removal
Post by: Eugene66 on July 20, 2009, 06:08:54 am
Some people don't post much and what they post matters.

Take Shepherd for example. His "one day" is taking a long time.

Also I really don't think new or old posters are more or less than one another. I mean When I found SF for example I was already a spiritual group leader and healer. So the only thing a new poster can learn from an old poster is how to use the forum basically. In about 20 posts a new poster will have a fair idea of who has been around for long enough to help with that, and then there is allways the forum bug. ;)

The staff titles ar ok as they are. I have them like that fore a mysterious reason that I dont want to go into right now. ;D

Now answer me this..............Why ?

Postcount? Why do you want to see it?

Staff titles? Why?

What is in it for you......and me.

Yes I agree with that - mysterious staff titles are good.   coolsmiley

Members can see how many posts they've made, and posts made by members.

Admin can see who is really active and also who is less active. Admin can converse more with less active members to help them feel at home or ... a member might feel 'left out', so if a member is fairly inactive we can be more attentive.

I personally like to see my own post count to ensure I'm pulling my weight as moderator too.

Post count rules!



Quote

What is in it for you......and me.

It's not about us staff. It's just so members can easily see who is staff. Just for member convenience.

I like the mystery staff titles  :)

I think a 'new spirit' should take maybe 200 posts. If it's 20 then they won't be new for long enough. Again this is good because calling them 'Welcome new spirit' makes them important and not 'lesser' in rank.

Take Shepherd for example. His "one day" is taking a long time.

My what??  ???

I mean When I found SF for example I was already a spiritual group leader and healer. So the only thing a new poster can learn from an old poster is how to use the forum basically.

This is a good point, some members have been working spiritually or in the therapy world for quite a while so why not have those details as an option for members?  Would be handy to know without going into their profile that someone was an aromatherapist for 20 years or spiritual teacher for 30 years etc.

He said that with 20 posts to remove the "new" that  members will do that in a day. So I mentioned you as an example of one who takes up an extremely long time to get to 20 posts thus having a long first "day"

well - the post count is good information.

I think 20 is a very small number of posts, perhaps 200 is too many, perhaps 120 posts is the right ammount -

20 is a very small number though.
