So, this might be something of a stupid question, but it's been bothering me for...a very long time.

What exactly is that little green mark under the member badges that says "Zeth is on a distinguished road" or "Strawberry_Sparkles will be famous soon enough" when you hover? Is it dependent on post count or reputation or what? And is there a key to those little sayings? Strawbz is the only one that I've noticed so far that has one that doesn't say the "Distinguished Road" bit.

I don't really...understand it.

I'm pretty sure it's related to the number of thanks/points you've gotten, seeing as Strawbs is the only person on the forums with 40+ Thanks and as far as I know, more than 40 000 points. There's also the fact that all the members with 0 Thanks seem to be "unknown entities at this point".

So if it IS based on reputation, maybe we could make it change between each level. A medal, perhaps.
Mm, thanks.

It's reputation.

That answer may have seemed rather short, and I guess it was, being two words. I was short on time, so I gave the most efficient answer I could.

It's reputation. If someone wanted to suggest icons, I'd be more than happy to put that on my list of stuff to do. However, this would be extremely low priority since I'm still working on fixing some themes that are already up, working on themes I'd like to release in the near future, and trying to get the site streamlined so that we don't have to use Joomla anymore (especially now that there's a bug that no one apparently knows how to fix), updating forum software, working on things people suggested in those surveys, figuring out why Rachel can't get on Tapatalk, and probably other stuff I've forgotten to list. Not to mention I'm currently in the process of packing for a more permanent housing location (which will be nice). (By the way, I'm not complaining, lol, just explaining why it'd be very low priority.)

Ethan, if you'd want to replace them yourself, I would be more than happy to let you. The images are here: http://mercuryice.com/forums/images/reputation/ (You'll have to look at it via FTP I believe) and you'd edit the reputation in the ACP under "User Reputations." I think the levels are really, really basic at this point, so if you wanted to make them more fun, you'd probably be a lot better at it than I am. =)

I actually had already located them on the FTP server. :)

I'm thinking about how I want to go about doing them, since the icons would have to jive with every skin.

Thanks though.
