Title: Membergroups and Rank
Post by: Bynw on September 07, 2018, 08:28:04 pm
There are a number of membergroups, most are all private but membership in them can be earned. We have a Community Support Membergroup if you contribute financially to keep the site up and running with a monthly donation. There are other membergroups and information about them will be posted to this thread.

Forum Ranks are based on time online (measured in hours). The more you stay the higher your rank becomes.

Our current private membergroups are listed below, each with their associated icon. You can be a member of several groups, this is very possible.

Some of these membergroups are closed and will we will not accept new members to them.

Administrator - These are your forum administrators that make all of this work the way it does.
Moderators - These are members who have moderation powers on specific boards. We recruit from time to time.
Community Supporter - These members help by contributing funds to keep the community running, let us know if you want to become one.
Our Queen - This is Katherine Kurtz herself
Probation - This is a restricted membergroup that is the first stage in a member getting banned.
Published Author - If you have a book published, let us know!
Spiders - These are search engine spiders that crawl across the world wide web, they are restricted in what they can see.

Oh, I like the Pole arm with the pendant. How do you get that to show on our profile too?

Being any of the private member groups takes president over the time online images. So community supporters, admins, zipper sisters, ect all get their crowns and stuff instead of the polearms.

Thank you for all your hard work Bynw.

Sadly, what first came into my mind was how hard Morgan and Derry would have worked in their younger days to have become part of the exclusive group of those on probation. How could they resist such a challenge?

For a little bit of math for the time online which is only measured in hours.

24 hours is 1 day
48 hours is 2 days
72 hours is 3 days
120 hours is 5 days
168 hours is 7 days (1 week)
240 hours is 10 days
360 hours is 15 days
480 hours is 20 days
672 hours is 28 days (about a month)
1440 hours is 60 days or 2 months
2160 hours is 90 days or 3 months or 1/4 of a year
4320 hours is 180 days or 6 months or 1/2 of a year
6480 hours is 270 days or 9 months or 3/4 of a year
8760 hours is 365 days or 1 year

Membergroup badges seen on posts depends on 2 factors. 1) Your primary member group. 2) Specific boards.

If you aren't a member of any special membergroup, then the badge will reflect the time spent on the forums. If you are a member of 1 membergroup, the badge will reflect for that membergroup instead of the time spent on the forums. Also if you are a moderator on a specific board, then you will show on that board only with the Moderator membergroup badge but everywhere else whichever membergroup (if any) is your primary membergroup.
