Discussion: User Rank Images

Postby SpaceG92 » Thu May 04, 2017 3:22 am

As I demonstrated during this years April 1st, we can have an image assigned to user ranks. The thought crossed my mind earlier today, should this be a thing? *see below

Pros:
Can look cool!
Low data usage (mobile | Files are only 6-12kb)

Cons:
Eye sore (?)
Increased data usage (mobile | Files are only 6-12kb)
Cannot be customized per theme

Below is an example using the 2014 post count rank, Legendary and the Biollante (Green) theme.

Dimensions: 100x25

I'm indifferent on it, it should probably be done for "Site Staff", "Mod", "Admin" and such - but feel free to comment. Poll votes are important! Please drop a vote!

Would definitely be better for Probationary members than the eye-searing yellow.

I'm indifferent however. Looks like more clutter, but
I kinda like it. I'm torn!

Are these able to replace the text ranks underneath/above our avatars? If so, it'll lean me slightly more towards a "yes".

Also, like I said in the Tags topic, an option to disable them would be a great alternative.

Not 100%, but I believe there is an option to disable/hide User Rank but it will still display the image - I swore I remember seeing it earlier

Now this - is another story.

By default there is no opt-in or opt-out, I really don't know specifics but for the most part, extensions are "all or nothing" unless specifically coded.

If this is the case, then I am 100% against it, especially the tags. It really clutters the look of the forum and I'd rather not sacrifice that for a potentially better search system or something as superfluous as rank images.

Random bump but out of the small 23 people who polled. 65% say yes. : s

I'm generally sour on it if it can't be customized by theme- really could be an eyesore...

But I want to understand a little better. Is the image a direct mirror of the title we already have, or independent. (Those titles are based on post-count, right?)

I feel yeah, I'm kinda in the same boat myself.

It is a direct mirror of what we have and then some extra ranks I will probably add along.

Gotcha. Well, aesthetic questions aside, sounds like an interesting idea. I'd be game.

Just set them so they look best on the Biollante theme, and we won't have any problems. ;)

500 year later response.

I can confirm that these image ranks can replace the text based user rank entirely. I am still trying to find a toggle on/off feature, to no avail.

Thought i'd drop this here and clear that up real quick.

And, as proclaimed, that leans me slightly towards being in favor of it. Would still prefer a toggle but if no solution is found, I can live with it.

I thought I responded to this..? Huh, I guess not. Anyway, just to toss in my two cents, I would prefer a system akin to what we had on the old forums where you could change your rank to whatever you pleased, and only the text was affected; as opposed to images. I feel like the images would stand out too much to where they might become a bother on the eye while browsing, though that is just me.

...Unless there were a way to combine the two, such as making a custom image banner that must be a certain size (such as the avatars), and uploading it for use as your rank image.
