So previously we had a system that placed a user title below your user name that was assigned based on how many posts you've made on the message board:

This system has now been changed to reflect how many 'likes' you've received instead of posts you've made. I've done this to encourage people to post quality content over quantity of content. The user title ladder has changed as well:

So if you're noticing a new title under your name than what you previously had, it's because of this change. It's a small cosmetic change, but I think this will work better in the long run. Remember to check the help section to see how user titles work!

We need to have a titles for negative ratings as well for people that have more negative ratings than positive ratings. Grand Theft Auto had the same thing on GTA Vice City And GTA San Andreas for the criminal rating. For every cheat you used you lost 10 points towards your "Criminal Rating" This is how it could work. User "train core" has 30 positive ratings and 10 negative ratings therefor his score is 20, you catch my drift? Every negative rating is minus 1 point while every positive rating is plus 1 point. Off course considering how everybody gives out more positive ratings than negative ratings nobody should really dip into the negatives, unless of course they are really getting on peoples nerves. Its more just a humor thing really haha

we do not have the ability to do this due to limitations in the forum software; specifically, the ability to assign user titles to users based on dislikes. we only have the ability to use likes, so unfortunately it's just not possible.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Nice picture, on the Wikipedia "hobo" page... I was working on that page a little, a few weeks ago. It's a total mess and I just scratched the surface, but I keep watching and hoping someone else will improve it. That photo improves it for sure. Wish I knew enough about hobo history to write something decent there.
