    Edit: This thread is just for fun and is not meant to be taken seriously

    Due to the problems with the current postcount system i have deviced a simple new system based on rep, postcounts and joining date to work out peoples true seniority on the forum.

    Your seniority rating =
    + 1 for every full month since you joined
    + 1 for evey 1000 posts
    + 1 for every gem of rep

    so mine is 4 + 1 + 3

    Note this system only gives a vauge idea of who is more senior, and dosn't take into account the actual contents of people posts but i thought it might be interwsting - here is the seniority rating of the tope page of members:

    So in order of seniority, then alphabetically:

    Adhsur 15
    elpaw 13
    ickle_katy 13
    Ollie 13
    Mr White 12
    Iluvatar 11
    lou p lou 11
    Xenon 11
    Leekey 10
    Egan1 9
    Expression 9
    Lord Huntroyde 9
    a_musical_gal 8
    Bigcnee 8
    edders 8
    loftx 8
    Bhaal85 7
    eric bischoff 7
    Infinity 7
    Pencil Queen 7
    vienna95 7
    ZJuwelH 7
    2776 6
    Blamps 6
    gemgems89 6
    theone 6
    Anna 5
    curryADD 5
    Sire 2

    Feel free to work out your own and add it below

    Yes, but it all amounts to time when you have been here. I eman lets see some random people, they might be here for like 12 months but havnt done anything. So I think yuou should rethink the system

    Notice phil is not on the list - members who have been inactive for a certain period don't get counted - everyone else is still a regular member.

    The problem is I don't think there will ever be a system that will please everyone, I look at forum age as the main point of seniority, but at the same time have respect for people like Sire and snow white who haven't been here that long, it's preference plain and simple.

    I think it's as fair a system as can be devised.

    Not long maybe 10 mins or so - the maths is pretty easy due to the way i chose the criteria. It would be easy to write a program that did it for every member though and you could alter the weight so how long you've been here mattered less.

    Theres a lot of people who should be about mid way up that list that are still active. I guess you just didnt include everyone?

    Sadly no - I would liked to have done a lot more - but it takes quite a while - please feel free to post your own below and i will add it to the main list.

    How about:

    Seniority = entire months since joining + (post count/200) + (10 * hours spent on UKL in last week) + (10 * number of rep gems)

    Of course the 200 and 10 used to multiply or divide may be varied to be as accurate as possible (but kept constant throughout use).

    So this takes into account:
    Experience on UKL
    Post count
    Amount of activity
    Reputation

    Hours spent online in last week might be hard to find, I guess.

    I think more credit needs to be given to entire months since joining, although I agree post count should be worth a bit more than time since joining.
