This is sadly not one those super awesome ideas, just a minor graphical idea. You know those "membership stars", you get when posted enough messages
<<<< Those

I realised that you might get confused(or not) over the ranking system. Anyway, it goes:

Blank>Black>Bronze>Silver>Gold>Diamond/Platinum.

I thought it would be neat if the previous rank also would be displayed in current rank like this:

Actual Display Of Rank(This how my idea is intended to show the rank)

Sample Of Different Ranks(Couldn't find every rank :()

So the stars will always be filled up, unfortunately this fugdes up the color system real bad :P. Anyway, I had some fun doing figuring this out... it didn't turn out to be exactly as I intended(making it less practical, than the current ranking system). This was just as stupid idea I had when I was bored and tired. I thought I would share it anyhow...

The sample of different ranks is not the actual idea, it's just brief display of how different ranks would look like. Due to some confusion about my idea, I thought it would be best to clarify the idea. The ranks will stay stationary, just like they way are now...but, they will show your previous rank in them. Look at the pictures in "Actual Display Of Rank", that's how my idea is intended to show the rank. Hope this clears up the confusion ;)

Are you upset that you're going to get your first bronze star pretty soon and will be back down to one-star status? :p

LOL!

To the original post, I think it's a good idea. However, given the image file's size would increase, and you stretch that over a few thousand members, it could prove to be troublesome on the bandwidth. Especially as more members come to the site and become more active, hence raising their rank. Just my opinion. :drunk

The GIF animation is just a sample, and the image file's size will not increase due to the small change of the original ;)

Cool idea, I think it's fine the way it is though and at a guess I'd say that "if it aint broke don't fix it" applies here. But cool none the less.

I was just kidding with you dude. I agree that it's a neat idea.

Ah, I see. I can now say I'm an idiot, lol. I complete misunderstood you. I thought you meant make everyone have a GIF image, which is why I mentioned the file size. WOW! I'm dumb, lol. Today has been such a bad day, lol. Forgive me.

Even still, like I said before, I like the idea. :woop:

quite interesting. my only complaint with it is that you would have to wait a full cycle to see what they are actually at, could be solved by only cycling stars and not words, but then again seeing how many posts they have made would give you an idea

How about getting rid of the cycling stars altogether?
For example, I'd have 4 black stars and one bronze and it'd just be stationary.

If it cycled that might get confusing, but since the idea is to have it stationary I think it's pretty cool.

That's my idea of how the rank would be displayed.

I don't get it either way. I re-edited the first post, hopefully it'll be easier to understand ;)

It's a really neat idea.

I think most of us were confused by the cycling stars.

With the edit to the original post, you've made it alot clearer.

Hope it gets implemented.

I don't really like the idea. It serves no additional purpose to what the blank stars have now, besides letting people know your previous rank (which people aren't going to remember by color) and is something people really don't care about. I don't even care about my current rank. Plus, it just looks weird, for lack of a better word.

I like it because when I cycle around to one star, I don't like seeing all those blank ones after it j/k. It is a pretty good idea though

I kinda like it, looks ugly for some though.

Here is a list of all ranks/pictures.
