[DEV] could we get a cookie title if the whole forum is based around cookie clicker?

like when you first sign up next to your name it says "new cursor" and at 10 posts "modern clicker" and so on?

    That runs the risk of making people more obsessed with posting than with cookie clicking. It would slow my plan for the permanence of the Grandmapocalypse.

    And then you get "Cookie Miner" and "Portal Opener"
    of course, the moderators are "Grandmatriarchs"

    Please don't, we don't need another forum where people endlessly shitpost to be a golden cookie or whatever.
    gold = cookies?

    I'm an elder god already, if this was implemented, and I have only been here for 1 day.
    I am the master of cursors. Cursors are everything. Cursors are love, cursors are life. I've said the word "cursors" so many times it sounds weird now.


    Cursors.

    This would encourage a lot of spammy posting. Which is the opposite of what we're trying to get right now.

    We're considering a karma type system where people can upvote your thread and comments if they like it, which would go towards a total number on your profile. But it's important this doesn't become like Reddit or Facebook. So this has to be thought through before it's implemented.
  • ______ Posts: 90Member ✭✭✭
    It doesn't have to be based on posts or likes. It could be as simple as replacing the admin titles with grandmatriarch, member title with new cookie.
  • bryfurybryfury Posts: 135Member ✭✭
    i say we stock up un upvotes like we stock up on cookies on the game, again, golden cookie = upvote and red cookie = downvote.

    Technically, yes. But it won't be related to titles. Just to see which thread has some good content and which doesn't. Custom titles based on some variable that goes up is bound to cause abuse or spam in some way.
  • UristqwertyUristqwerty Posts: 31Member
    You won't see what thread has good content, you'll see what thread has popular content, or what thread has been upvoted by friends/alts, or what thread was made by some popular user from a separate community who asked people from that community to upvote their post.
  • OptiOpti Posts: 699Administrator, Game Dev, Server Operator Admin
    Which is why, if we were to implement a system like this, it has be thought through instead of mindlessly cloning a feature from another website. Like I mentioned earlier in the thread.

    At least this would avoid the Reddit problem, where unpopular opinion gets shunned and hidden away and people just regurgitate popular opinion to make themselves popular.
    Everyone would be equally visible, they would just have varying numbers.
    The downside is that of our current crop, our highest rated users would probably be those who can dig up the oldest, most dead meme and parade it around as if it were still alive. Fuckin' Chuck Norris jokes.

    I'd personally prefer the highest-rated members be those who are very proficient at cookie clicker or those who produce awesome content.

    Exactly. I think the system as it is right now is fine. It just needs more organization, not necessarily more ways to say "I'm better than you.".
