What about a mask/member group for loyal/regular/active/senior, or some shape and form of, members. Rather than being the normal blue, they could be are bluer blue; Cobalt, Azure, whatever.

Criteria could be a minimum amount of (non-download section) posts, possibly minimum time as member but, that is not always relevant, and of course admin and mod discretion and possibly 'newgroup' member vote. Therefore, it would work best if you meet minimum requirements, then apply for it.

There seems to be a lot of members, and few of them are actually active outside of the download section (i.e 19 posts all thank yous on various releases). I think it would be nice to distinguish between members of the Anime Passion community and those that are just members of the forum.

I would understand if people think there is not much point to this with a small community like ours but, I still think it is worth a thought. I obviously like the idea.

Good idea, but bad choice of colour. I want pink!

that could be fine but i want to do something more elitist like invite only after X post count where 50% of the current members need to approve the invite. this way only the best can get in. and we can have our own "special" section where we hang out and discuss things that the normal members can only DREAM of :evil:

ya... i am loving the idea more and more the more i think about it.

though i am not the only admin around these parts so i would also like to hear their opinions as well.

I'm all for this as well.

Let's decide on a name and color for the group. Maybe "Elite" or something for the name, and a dark blue color would definitely help to balance out our color scheme a bit.

eehh dark blue will not stand out in the dark skin style. i was thinking something flashy like pink or gold/yellow or something like that.

I see what you mean -- I was only thinking about the existing user group colors. How about a silver color, then?

So, to summarize, here are the problems:

1) We can't have a color too close to red or purple, lest regular members be confused with admins and mods respectively.
2) We can't use silver or yellow, because they won't work on the light theme.
3) We can't use dark colors (i.e. dark blue), because they won't work on the dark theme.
4) We can't use a color that is already used by another member group (blue/white, red, purple, orange, green).

How about a teal/light blue color?

I agree to this and I would love it, being an active user in both old and new AnimePassion be good for us that have withstood the test of time. I also like the name of Moderator Junior-grade. Not quite a mod but can do mod like things within reason.

Or have a ranking system where as the Admins are like Admirals, the Moderators are like Captains and this new group could be like a Commander.


Been watching Star Trek TOS and been playing on STO for a week so am all trekkied up.

I shall let you people choose the colour but I think Gold would suffice, or change the admins colour to gold and this new groups to red

This might create a sense of alienation to members who aren't invited but feel they should be. But then it may be pretty obvious as to who would belong or not anyway. It might also inspire others to be more active in the forums which would be a good thing. I'm not sure if there should be hard-and-fast rules to get in, or simply have the top brass here deciding. Or some of both. I'd hate to see people just quick posting junk all over the place simply to earn a spot.

I'm not by nature a social kind of guy, although I may seem like it at times. This sort of thing doesn't really matter to me in the end, as long as I have access to what I need. I also imagine there are other members like me who can be quite active for a while, and then fall silent for long stretches due to other things taking our time away.

we could call it VIP, everyone knows what that means and i do not want a person to be able to do X and get it. they need to be judged by their peers as to if they are qualified or not. there will not be anything too different other than the color of their title and possibly a small subform for which we can discuss possible actions of the site before we ask the general populous.

Might be the wrong topic, but while we're on this "VIP" subject, how about special things for these VIPs for the torrent tracker? Or has the tracker died a horrible death?

Okay, so how does VIP sound and look?

If that's fine, I'll make the usergroup and forum, and write up an initial "suggested invitations" list. ;)

lol more like put into cryostasis. i really wanna wait for the IPB plugin and not make a whole new site for it. but they constantly seem to delay it.

as for the list please place it in the staff section as those will be the ones who initially choose these such VIP members.
