Posting Ranks Explained

Recommended Posts

Uh ... far be it from me to suggest that Christians and Agnostics should attach pagan deities to their persona.

 

What I was suggesting though was simply using civilian ranks of historical origin for the hierarchy rather than the current military grades.

 

For instance:

 

Someone who just signed up .... citizen without the vote

 

Someone who has been here long enough to warrant using the blog features and such ... citizen with the vote

 

 

Then as we move up the hierarchy we can start using things like decurion, equestrian, senator, princeps senatus , triumvir, etc. Maybe the class could be handed out by the admins on a combination of quality and quantity as opposed to mere quantity. Something to replace the old reputation point system.

 

 

Just a thought. If it proves too unworkable, never mind. :)

We will stay around for a looong time,so once we have used all military ranks we could use roman gods for the top posters...

 

(i would need then a list from ursus with a ranking of the top ten/twenty list of roman gods) (you can pm me for that if you like)

 

LOL

How many posts would you need to become "Jupiter Optimus Maximus" then :D

We changed the Usergroups to a more roman style! B)

 

The Usergroup Admin is now Triumvirate (hey we are three admins, so it fits! B)

The Usergroup Moderator is now Praefectus

 

Regular Members are now Usergroup Plebeians

 

Previous Members Group "Citizens" (which gives you the ability to have your own blog on UNRV, and full access to the Gallery) is now "Equestrians"

 

We also created a completely new Usergroup for previous "Equestrians" that contributed with articles and/or book reviews, called "Patricians" (Every month we give one roman history related book to the "Patricians" as a on going thank you for the outstanding contribution those membes have made towards UNRV.com"

 

Those Usergroups are not related to post count, and are elected by merit only from Admins!!!

 

oh, and the banned members are now "Damnatio"

I like it alot better, and as a plebian, I can become a (what ever that office was. tribune I think?) instead of just being a plain old member. But I guess underneath the vanity, Its still the same lol.

 

Oh yes, I see Viggen has taken advantage of the recent change and made him self "Imperator" All Hail! (or else I suppose but anyways) All hail!

 

But what ever, I'm still having fun! :sniper: B)

Just out of curiosity, and not wanting any names mentioned, have any other people been given the "Damnatio" status apart from Spartacus?

There have been several banned members. I believe the most recent was Imperator Marzellus, the majority of whose posts I have deleted from record.

That was Viggen playing around. He made all Plebeians 'slaves' until they have 10 posts. Unfortunately, it reverted everyone, even if they already have the required post count. It's our theory that as soon as any of the former plebes make another post they will be immediately freed from their temporary servitude. ;)

Looking at that nifty spread of centurion types, you guys could possibly have quite a few more steps before going to the high ranks (ie Hastatus Prior Hastatus Posterior et cetera). Also 'Princepales' seems to be the name for a group of officers and not a specific one?
