I know people have really been wanting the Rec count to come back, or maybe even the post count... I think I may have a resolve for both these problems...
I was thinking maybe the rec count can be brought back in an invisible manner, yet with a visible marker. Let me explain. What if we use the same (or modified) stars that are currently being used for move count and apply that to a forum rec rating, without a number ever being displayed. For instance:
0 rec: Skull
10 rec: Under 2000 moves star
20 rec: Over 2000 moves star
30 rec: Over 10,000 moves star
50 rec: Over 25,000 moves star
100 rec: Over 50,000 moves star
200 rec: Over 100,000 moves star
This star ranking can be displayed underneath the moves count or directly under the posters avatar
Keeping the same allocation methods for rec (30 recs in 30 days) this would alleviate any spamming for recs or anything like that.
I think this ranking system will really help distinguish trolls from exceptional posters
This will be very warming for new users, gives them an easy way to distinguish who to ask for help and such !
What do you guys think !?
