I'm not sure how many of you have noticed but your User Title might have changed and if it hasn't yet it probably will soon! What we have done is added on top of the user ranks that SA use to have, like Waterboy, Starter, Legend etc. These are now user-groups that you belong to and can move up based on your number of posts. Some of you may have taken a few steps back with your Title that is because the number of posts to get to the next Rank/User-group have increased substantially, as you can see in the table below.
The biggest change is the "Top 100" is now gone. It's called the "Top 30" and is already filled and nobody else can be in the user-group. The Contributer group has stayed the same with a few modifications. Basically though, if you donate to SA you will be placed into this group and have instantly maxed yourself out and really can't go any higher unless you become a part of the staff or are selected into the the "Elite Member" group.
Elite Member Group - This group is like a "private club" at SA and will help SA prepare for the future! This group will be SA's "Steering Committee" and will help SA come up with new ideas and make SA even better. Details on how to become a part of this group will follow at a later time.
Other Notable Changes - Weekly pay checks are now more than the 25 points you all use to receive, so you all pretty much got a raise! Plus, the discounts on items in the vbPlaza were increased across the board for all groups! There were some modifications made to the number of pager messages you can store as well as private messages, please refer to the table for more information:
If anyone has any questions or concerns about this please contact someone on the Staff or post your question here in the thread and we will respond ASAP. Thanks for your time!
