Are you a Loyalist?? (or how to be in the Loyalist group) Loyalist


So... what are "Loyalist"?
Loyalists are the higher ranks on this forum

And what does it mean exactly?

It means they are valuable members, they have their own private boards and they organize their own thread-parties. They have proven themselves to be dedicated to the community and it's advancements, and are an important part of the community. We listen carefully to their ideas and opinions about the site.

So... what do I have to do?
You can be a Loyalist by different routes, none of them is exclusive and definitive, but just a series of paths we look into when searching for a new Loyalist:


  • Reputation points and activity levels. Reputation points give us an idea of how your contributions are perceived by other members. It might be a funny post, it might be a helpful one, it might be a great sig you made for someone. Obviously, activity levels are also important, you could have gotten 15 or 20 reputation points with only ten posts, maybe even one per month... even though we consider that amazing and we congratulate you for that.. well, it does not make community, does it? We would like you to be active, to be an inspiration to other members! Stick around!

  • Nominations. Can you see that alert button on the top right corner of the post? It has two purposes: nominating good posts, and alerting an admin/mod about abuse. Just write the purpose of the alert, and we will review the post. Nominations work in a similar way to rep points but they also point to the exact post you consider outstanding, so we can see it too. With rep points, we can only see that people has been voted a certain number of times but there is no way to figure out which post has been given reputation points unless we look into the threads that member has posted, then we can see the green bar beside the post. With nominations, we receive a link that take us to the post.


  • By contributing to the community in some other way than posting (helping with the graphics, design, advertising this site in several places, etc). A mod/admin can nominate you if you have contributed significantly. If that's the case, your candidature will be discussed and voted on immediately if from Admin recommendation. Maybe you are not the kind of member who spam a lot or write epic posts, maybe your name is not all over the boards but you help this site by doing things in the background, like bringing people from other sites, doing tournaments and contests, graphics, etc.


Now, what do you mean with "good posts"?

Anything can be a good post: good advice, helping a member, a funny post that has made laugh the whole community, a walkthrough... you decide what is worthy. Post will be reviewed to ensure that nominations are fair and it is not just spam.

So... what are you waiting for???
Very Happy= :D

Letting [/\] clan members into the Loyalist group has been discussed a bit. For the mot part, its been decided that yes, you do qualify for the group, but under all the same restrictions and limitations of normal users. In fact, I may be a bit harder on you guys as we take it case by case. So to answer as best I can for now, yes, the possibility is there.
No, there has been no discussion on you yet deej.

Not necessarily.

You never know.
I will say it would help us out a lot if we can start getting the community to use the report feature to nominate posts, etc.
It would give us a better idea of who to be looking at.
This above part is highly directed towards current loyalists but in general I'd like to see the community as a whole using it. Its not just for reporting bad posts.

Besides, once I get a chance to reset some of the required post counts needed for certain ranks, Loyalist will not be easy to get by just posting.
I'm talking post counts in the thousands here.

Some of the people who have contributed the most in post quality or quantity for that matter have racked up close to 1,500 posts in just a little over 1 year. The number needed to reach Loyalist will be huge.

well it is a prestigious rank in the nation, I'm a firm believer in earning my ranks and everything like that, totally different than in some areas you are basically born into your position, but there are definitely people who I have seen that have been helpful to others, including myself

On another site I belong to there is a simmilar system of reward points for good/helpfull posts, the difference being that on the other site you can see who has given you the nominations and any comments they have left.

I have been fortunate enough to have received a couple of karma points on here, but I'm not sure who found what posts helpful. Have you considered some sort of feedback mechanism so that newbies like myself know what other forum members have liked about their posts to give us an idea of the direction we should be going in? This also works the other way around as if I post something which offends someone I would like to know so I can avoid doing it again.

Obviously I want to be seen as a valued member of the community, so a little direction would be helpful.

Just a thought from my armchair.

A bit long winded, but if you trawl your post history while you aren't logged in you can see the green/red Nation point indicator on the post you were nominated for. Wink

The forum won't let you see it if you're logged in though, stupid forum. Rolling Eyes

I would be able to send users a direct link to the post they were NOMINATED for through the report feature.....yes Kilmory

Not so much with the + and - buttons of the nation reputation points though.
Those for the most part go untracked.
However, while viewing a users profile page, you can see how many + and - votes they have cast, and received themselves.

We need to find a way to promote the use of the report button.
It gives us admins and mods not only a link to the post, but a way of tracking them better.
It would be a lot more effective.
We'd be able to go.....So and so has XXX nation reputation points AND has recieved 4 nominations from other various posts.

At this point, I think the best thing I can ask ALL users to do is this:

If you + or - something. Follow up.
As soon as the vote is cast, immediately click on the report button inside the same post to send us the info.
We can keep a long in the admin boards from there.

Unless people start manually doing it, we wont know which posts are getting +'ed.

So, use the report feature, but instead of saying "Oi! Is this post bad?" you say "Come take a look at this epic post." Very Happy= :D

Exactly right.

When you click on the little stop sign a layout much like the normal posting lay out appears.
Where you would normaly be typing a topic title is a drop down bar with the options
Nominate Post
Report Abuse/Post
Forum maintenance (thread lock requests, title changes to topics etc)

The text box is called Other informations...or something like that.
Just type in what ever you want in the box:



ZOMG! This post is teh awesome.
Nominated and +'ed

Or .
Ahhhhhh
This post is icky and gross

Or.
hey can you guys lock this topic, remove this post of mine, can I take this dead thread over as the OP? w/e)

This is my kryptonite.

Admids and mods have no control or editing capabilities over the Nation rep points.
They can only be increased or decreased by users.

The whole point of the feature is to put some of the power in the communities hands.
Let them raise and lower their own based on merit.

Does anyone read the basic Forum Features OP?
