Nice, informative post, KR155E. Thanks! Now, how about some info on the “star” ratings; e.g. what number of posts is associated with each rank? Also, are there any other “special” ranks besides “Administrator”?

Also, I would like to suggest another badge type:

Meta Coder (or whatever you want to call it)

It would be for people like DogP, David Tucker, Virtual-E, etc. who produce or improve programs that facilitate writing/debugging/etc. VB programs (e.g. emulators, compilers, graphics tools, etc.).

As always, good ideas, Amos!

I just added another post about user ranks.

That batch you suggested will be added asap, though I think I will call it differently, maybe just “App Coder”.

App Coder badge has been added.

You should let people get a single custom badge if they donate money to pay for site costs. Its fun and a great way to get some cash!

Hmm… there’s the “Donator” badge. Or do you mean something else?

Isn’t it called “donor”, in Swedish it’s “donator” tough…

AFAIK, both terms are possible.

I know there’s the donor badge, which is cool and all, but this one forum I used to frequent would let you give yourself a custom title (such as ‘Nintendoid!’ being whatever you wanted it to be). I kind of like the titles the way they are since it shows how involved everyone is. I thought it would be cool if you could get the donor badge, but maybe if you donated a certain amount you could get a badge says whatever you want.

Then that would be like buying a title.

Right. I think the badge plus being listed in the donations section is a good appreciation. Keep in mind that most people don’t donate for getting a badge or so in return, but to say thank you and to help keeping the site up and running.

PVB is one of the best sides, I know.
I was happy to find and happy about all the hints, chris gave to me in only a few days.
If you donate a little amount – you’ll help this fabulous side. Why not?

And by the way: NO badge is for nothing πŸ˜‰

Wow!

Take a look to the list of last 5 donations:

Anonymous Donor EUR 50

Hero!
Spends the biggest amount up to now without “buying” a badge!

We can do so, too πŸ™‚

I would recommend having donor badges by year. That might encourage people to keep on donating…

I would recommend having Top 10 donor badges. That might encourage people to donate more money than others πŸ˜‰

I liked RAD’s idea most and added Top 3 donor badges. I think that’s sufficient for now, but I might expand those to Top 5 or Top 10 some day.

The first special award was given to RunnerPack for practically running the VB Dev Wiki all on his own. Congrats!

*cries* You love me, you really love me! πŸ˜‰

But seriously, this is a great honor. I hope the wiki is of use to someone. I still have more updates to post, when I get the time. And more, unwritten articles after those…

BTW, I love the color scheme! 😎

Donor badges are gone? πŸ™
