    I thought avs were only linked to post count

    You're right, my bad on the name. When you get to a certain level of post counts, you can unlock certain avatars and post counts in Off Topic don't count for you, but only against you in terms of negative rep.

    Thanks Q.

    Hey,

    Not sure this is really a mod thing so much as an admin decision, but I dont see anywhere else to put it

    Any chance we'll ever see a Buffy forum in the alternate universes category? I think it could be a good addition, if your worried about not enough activity perhaps you could make it Buffy and Angel, two shows in one folder....that way they'll always be something to discuss.

    I'm not a mod/admin, but I can guess what Darren would say about it.

    1. Neither show is currently in production.
    2. There aren't enough active discussions to warrant it.

As much as I think series like B5 and Farscape are some of the best genre TV ever produced, the number of threads for them right now reflects that there isn't a ton to actively talk about.

    Because, as I said (and Darren said): there aren't enough active threads to warrant it. "Old Shows" is basically what the Scifi/Fantasy folder is, now. It's a bit hair-splitting to go and create ANOTHER folder to fill basically the same purpose.

    Okay fair enough. Though I think the main problem is starting threads. If somebody started threads on old eps they'd be pretty active.

    *runs off to start some buffy threads

    Yep, discussion threads for series would be better

    GateWorld Re: Ask the Moderators

    I've hit 801 posts, now where the heck are my new set of avatars? Ignore that question, I have the extra avatars now

    I go to the Forum leaders page and I'm confused about the grouping, please explain it to me. And why am I in the Enlisted Personnel group and not in the Officer's Class group?

    we're trying to walk a fine line between too little and too much. There have been other forums that have tried to cover every single show out there....and have been so fragmented that there's not much discussion...hence less of a division here

    now, if some shows generate a lot of discussion and prove that they can maintain a level of activity, then it will be easier to make a case for more separate folders

    Maybe you should try being a little more patient instead of demanding immediate answers to your interrogation.

    The class rankings on the who's who list are determined by post count, which doesn't necessarily have anything to do with avatar levels. Of course, the whole thing is completely arbitrary and insignificant and a majority of people aren't even aware of those particular classifications, nor does anyone really care.

    Maybe you should spend more time contributing meaningful/fun content to Gateworld and less time obsessing over trivialities. Then again, maybe a LOT of people should do that.

    I'm not really sure where all the groupings break out. being one of the mods since the beginning, they never applied to me so i never go to 'rise through the ranks'....they didn't apply to me.

    so i don't have the answer handy. If it's not in the FAQ, then it's in darren's head and i'm sorta scared to go there

    Check out the "Forum Restructure" thread -- I've explained in there the criteria used for determining which other shows would get their own dedicated folder.

    "Officer's Class" is the forum's third membership level (second promotion), and is closer to 2,000 posts.
