Personally, I don't support that for exactly that reason. The last thing we need are elitist "I'm an engineer and you're not" types of posts.


John Lansford isn't a member of this forum, is he?  :-D

I suppose the P.E.'s among us could note that in their signatures or elsewhere, if they wanted.

FWIW, those of us in the state PR business recently got a gentle reminder that it's not necessary to include the P.E. designation when referring to someone who has that professional designation in our news releases. It may come as a blow to their egos, we were told, but that designation is normally not pertinent when it comes to referring to or quoting engineers who are in a position of authority.


Government would be tolerable if not for politicians and bureaucrats.

If there's enough support and someway to differentiate the images based on theme or setting, then I will make Clearview ones.

EDIT: Oh god, I just changed the font to Clearview on one of them just to see what I'd have to do - I had to manually adjust the kerning and use ClearviewHwy-1-W for some of these!!!

That reminded me of when I was screwing with compact Clearview...there really isn't an alternative to Series B in Clearview (from what I could tell).

NCX, please!!  Everyone has to start somewhere....  It's all good, besides, how do you take the journey of 1000 miles?  By starting out with a single step.  And you have!

Speaking of new journeys, I like the new rank-label look.  Oh, and WTG Zeffy, you did it again!

Agreed! You shouldn't look at your post count as "look how many posts I have!", but rather "I've made x good contributions to this forum.". And I know you can definitely make some quality contributions to the forum.  ;-)

I'm not sweating it, it was just a bit of a joke.  :spin:

This is good because I can block all these images with adblock plus and not have to see anybody's dick waving.

It adds a ton of pressure, too. We already have bugo yelling at AHTD for making mistakes.

Not yelling - just correcting errors.

I think the new images look awesome Zeffy! Nice job. All I need to do is keep pushing for that U.S. highway!  :sombrero:

Also the "Stars next to our names" thread was mine so yeah its 99% useless! Whatever..

:) Needs more... :sombrero: Not quite... :bigass: Perfect.

The rank of "Dirt Road" is most appropriate in my case since I spent many years cruising every remote dirt road I could find in North and Central Texas. Man, those were the days.  :thumbsup:

Asking the same question as someone else on this thread, is the "Likes the forum way, way too much" image for 10,000+ posts?

I've only seen agentsteel have the thing, and he has like 15k something posts.

It was never confirmed, but it seems it would only make sense for that image to be for 10,000+ posts.
Now alternating between different highway shields for my avatar - my previous highway shield avatar for the last few years was US 76.

I'll respond in code (C# to be specific):


for (int x = 0; x < Forum.Functions.countMembers(); x++)
            {
               Int32 posts = Forum.Functions.getMemberPosts(x);

                switch (posts)
                {
                    case 0:
                        Forum.Functions.setMemberRank(x,"parkinglot");
                        break;
                    case 3:
                        Forum.Functions.setMemberRank(x,"dirtroad");
                        break;
                    case 25:
                        Forum.Functions.setMemberRank(x,"frontageroad");
                        break;
                    case 50:
                        Forum.Functions.setMemberRank(x,"arterial");

                        break;

                        break;

                        break;
                    case 1500:
                        Forum.Functions.setMemberRank(x,"turnpike");
                        break;
                    case 3000:

So I'm an Interstate if I have 5,000 posts, but I have no rank if I have 5,001? ;D

Seems to me in order for that code to work, it would have to be run every time somebody makes a post.  But if it does, then it really only needs to evaluate the rank of the person who just posted, rather than everybody.
Wait, it's all Ohio? Always has been.

Zeffy, I'd like to drop this here. Considering we are all from different states, could you get the silhouettes of the 50 states or the ones that use state silhouettes as a state highway symbol and let the ones who reach that rank have the option between that and the standard that so desire to?

Thanks!
Well, that's just like your opinion man...

Not possible unless we were to create 50 different themes.  And that isn't going to happen as any theme fixes would have to be made for all of them and not worth the time just for different images in the rank area for the 'state' part.  That's why we chose the 'circle'.

Yeah, that does seem like way too much work for little benefit.
