Ranking System

Post by Shewolf13 » Mon Apr 06, 2015 5:41 pm

Ranking System
After much time and deliberation, the Ranking System is finally ready.

What Are The Rankings and How Do They Work?

First of all, you need to make sure you've updated the relevant profile field. If you haven't done this, you cannot start progressing.

New Profile Field
If you click on the User Control Panel and then go to Profile, you will notice a new drop down menu called "User Class", which is sitting under "Gender". This is your chosen class within The Collective. Your rankings will be themed along these lines. This can also be used as your Forum Persona's class or occupation within the Persistent World, but it is not mandatory to use it in this way. Currently, the default is "Adventurer", but if you see my profile, you can see that I have selected Rogue.

Customised Rankings
As mentioned, this class ties into your rankings. We have come up with a series of customised rankings which should give everyone a little something to select that they like. There are six ranks within each category and you must meet certain criteria to proceed to the next level. Each level of each different ranking is reflective of each other. Just because you choose Nobility as your class, does not mean you will be held in higher esteem than someone who chooses Rogue. Please see the images below for the rankings. With Level 1 ranks, everyone has one small class icon, i.e. a cross, a crown, a hat etc.

When you get a spare moment, please go into your UCP and set your Class so that we can start distributing rankings. Everyone will start on Level 1, regardless of Post Count.

How Do I Get Them?
Portfolios. This is a place where you can link to all of your resources and topics here on The Collective. What you choose to put in here is up to you, but if you're applying for a badge or a rank, the links we need to look at must be here. Aside from that, how you choose to present it is completely up to you - though we've given you a template if you're not sure how to start. Feel free to jazz it up! Portfolios are also a great way of keeping track of things, like your RPs (though most of you do this in the Lexicon and that's okay too!) or giving others a one-stop place to comment on your work.

Once you've got your portfolio posted in this section, you'll need to complete the requirements of the badge and rank you want. When you've done that, post in the Badge or Rank Applications thread. You can find these in the separate sub-forums here. When the Moderator in charge has seen your application and reviewed your portfolio, once it has been found satisfactory, sent a lovely PM to let you know the status of your application,you'll be given the badge you applied for, and you've see your name on the Honour Roll.

Note: Please remember at this time it all has to be done manually. We will endeavor to sort you out within 48 hours of your application. If you have any queries, please PM the Moderator in charge.

What do we mean by satisfactory? Just that all the required stuff is there, or all the required links are there!

Now, without any further ado...
