Windclan rank discussion
« on: November 12, 2017, 03:56:06 PM »
hey guys! So I want to know whether you prefer to achieve ranks via activity (how it's currently set up), or if you'd rather achieve ranks via development.

So how the latter would work is that everyone starts at a kind of level 1. To get to level two, there are a bunch of tasks that can be carried out (like maybe 4 or 5 listed) and you would have to get maybe 3-4 of those tasks done to reach the next level/rank.

Of course, the ranks would be maxed at a certain level, and the second in command/leader would be above this, supposedly having done majority or all of the tasks.

The tasks could range from small things that require one thread and a certain number of replies, to some sort of arc for your character. Each task is supposed to help you further your connection with your character by how they see and deal with plot 'hurdles'.

On the side could be some sort of accolade system, which is set apart from the ranking system, but that would probably come later when this idea is fleshed out more. If you could vote above and then give a short shpeal below, or you can give your shpeal to me in a pm that would be fantabulistic I would really like to know what you guys think with as much detail as possible as to why you like/dislike it or how it could be improved. Thanks!

EDIT: I realize that the survey could render all this discussion obsolete but we don't know for sure that they're gonna do a wipe because I think most don't want a wipe. So if it does come to a wipe we'll deal with it then, but until that happens I want to continue as if it won't.

Yes, I intend to be the most active leader period. Failing that, I'll post at least twice a week, but hopefully more!

Thanks for the input and would love more when you get the time!

i like both systems but we need a failsafe: because people could come on two days a week and post four sentences, and if that's all your counting, that's not gonna cut it
im sure you can manage though
edit: totally fucking posted wth the wrong account lmao

Yes, perhaps a happy medium between the two? Development, but also activity level?

I think that could work. Development is nice but also having the activity to help move things forward.
