Title: New Rank Images
Post by: rickmastfan67 on May 05, 2014, 11:01:50 PM
Hello forum members!

The staff team has been working very hard and we are pleased to announce our new rank images are being rolled out to the AARoads forum! These new rank images will replace the default stars that were used on the forums previously. In addition, a new mod has been installed to offer the staff members and other special ranks their own group icons in addition to the post based rank images!  Special thanks go out to Zeffy who created the new images!

If you have any suggestions or commends regarding the new images, feel free to post them here!

Cool stuff! Of course, I'm still at "dirt road" but these symbols are neat. Time to get going, I need to actually talk about roads, and of course, move up...

There are name changes and lower thresholds for certain classifications such as county highway or state route.

You were "trail" before this.

So far, I'm really liking the new ranks. Especially the DOT Employee signpost -- I like the blue alongside the FHWA logo.

Glad you guys like them! This is a result of deliberation and planning from April 20th. The images were made by me, but the ideas were contributed from many staff members to result in what you see. So don't just thank me - thank your staff members too! (And esp. rickmastfan for actually incorporating them!!  :sombrero:)  :clap:

We made some changes along the way, such as removing Viaduct and Trafficway and substituting others for those. My favorite rank is Parking Lot.  :sombrero:  Parking Lot takes effect for your first few posts, after that you get your very own dirt road.  ;-)

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. Let what you have to say speak for itself- if you're an engineer, you'll come out as knowing what you're talking about and you can earn respect that way. DOT Employee is slightly different because you may have information that isn't widely available, and might not be able to point to a website to cite yourself.

While I see your point, I think the mods would easily handle the "elitist" engineers. Secondly, acting like such goes against our code of ethics (http://www.nspe.org/resources/ethics/code-ethics).

DOT Employee is slightly different because you may have information that isn't widely available, and might not be able to point to a website to cite yourself.

Depending on where the person works in the DOT, that is more than likely true, unless they're the head of a division. However, unless you own your own firm, just because you're in the private sector doesn't mean you're any more likely to have the ability to cite yourself.



Regardless, I also like the new themed rank images and reorg of the member levels. :clap:  Thanks to all involved.

If a category is created for consultants/PE's, this is my suggestion for an image (similar to the DOT Employee image): Blue blade with an orange "men working" symbol sign (W21-1) and white text "Hwy Engineer"

So, probably no group for CE students thenů

I suppose a group for "started college intending to go into CE but dropped out before entering the major" was never a realistic possibility.

Also, like I said txstateends, without the ideas from Alex and the rest of the AARoads staff, these icons would never exist. I put the effort into making these, but I cannot tell you how many ideas were contributed by the staff and not myself. The only one I remember making myself was the

Doing California, Canadian and European style signs (plus the ones here) with the option for the user to pick their style would be sweet in my eyes!  Do something special and get a custom BGS from the site as part of your signature.  Anyways, someone had a good eye for a fancying up of AARoadforums and the new stuff looks great!

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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

Code: [Select]
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:

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.

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!

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.
