Good point on both of those. I don’t have much else more to say about them, but I really do hope this all gets implemented. And yeah, Grandmaster should just default to displaying once the user would have achieved all the highest titles.
@Rare Good Entry Contributors:
Can I just bring up real quick that we have solid incentive systems for Images, Videos, Comments, and Forum Posts (voting systems), but not the entries themselves? (Can’t really count Confirms as an incentive due to their low impact on user statistics and their rarity. And the User Rewards do every category besides Forum at the moment.)
Though that issue might be for another thread, but I have an idea on this relevant topic, namely addressing the User Statistics Impact.
Create a string of titles based on the number of Confirms an Editor has gotten.
To get points towards a title like that, the User must have been an Editor at the time the entry was confirmed.
Keep the “Researcher” line the same and bland, but make Entry Confirm Titles have increased priority over Researcher, Media Contributes, and Posters. (300-500 point weight maybe?)
Here we can intentionally use ego-stroking titles the creation of these, or maybe have them be references to Mythology. Things that intentionally put them over professions or personality traits. “King Confirm” and “Golden Touch” being the first few that come to mind. (Because really, the main function of the site should have the most grand sounding titles).
