Continuing the member group stuff.

The consensus seemed to be more is better.  So I almost exactly mirrored the group structure from V1 here.  See screenshot attached for the structure as it stands now.

The only variations are group names and post count in 1 group  (unless you count my Zero post count group which will be handy later for controlling inactive accounts and that sort of thing).  Oh yeah - star stuff is different too.

Since, like I always say, the actual group names and star stuff is not important and easily changed at any time  (it is only the number of groups and their post count requirements which effects permissions) I took the low road and just named the second tier 2a - 2f, and the 3rd tier similarly.

The key thing here before setting permissions is post counts.

In the 3rd tier it increments by 150, just like on V1.

But that skips 1,000 Posts as a milestone - so I cheated and made 3e 1,000 posts instead of 1,100.

Any of this can be changed easily before all permissions are set - still possible to change later, but more work.

So let's see some group name ideas, and some 20 x 20 pixel star thingies submitted!

I can do it, but may as well let others have some fun too.

This part should not be changed much once it's done, so may as well make it a group effort.

The V1 Group stuff has a screenshot a few posts back.


EDIT:  I updated a few things -

Gave 7 stars to admin / global mod / sponsor

6 to moderator / donator / supporter

And we may still want to make more changes.  Suggestions welcome!

i definitely like the mandelbrot-sets.

hmm... you know what would really be lovely geeky and appropriate for a fractalforum?
to actually display the post count with using that (i don't even know the proper english name) 1.21e2 for 121 posts. you think we could do this? probably complicated..

Cool idea and only as difficult to implement as making the images.  Then just upload them and name them accordingly or create new names as needed.

The only issue that arises with member groups is adding new groups after all permissions are set.

Apart from that, the stars  (mandelbrots) or group names don't effect permissions at all.  I am pretty sure changing required post counts is harmless too - it's just the absolute number and types of groups which is best to have defined before getting too deep into custom permissions.

I meant the post number, as attached - making images for every number is not a good way to do this.
just an idea, if it's too hard, let's discard it.

And I thought you meant the stars should be mandelbrot images with the post count associated with the group for iterations or powers or zoom depth or some other relationship...

I told you my brain was made out of wood!!

Just noticed 0E is pushing that 100 post mark!

Wouldn't want him to be a "2a" - that would just be weird, even by my Old Hippy Standards.

So the next group is set, but I'll update the screenshots later since so many more still need to be named.

Still not sure how to theme them all - but if it gets too close to Public Beta time I'll just steal the names from V1 and be done with it.

I'm glad to see you are here! Hopefully you will also continue to create new formulas, as we all love new formulas to play with!
