Can we have a post similar to the first page of THIS ONE so as to explain the various ranks etc.
I know a similar one has been created in this forum but it does not explain things as clearly as the Windows 7 one

If that is correct please explain how you have two different rank badges; Member and VIP Member.

In my first post I mentioned that it did not help.
I will rephrase my question so as people can understand it.
All I want to know is what number of posts/rep you need to be a member/vip member etc.
Someone must know
Kodi, the reason i posted that link, at that page pretty much explains how we got the badges on this forum ;)

First let me state that i am not complaining but am confused.
I am a Power User at seven forums
I earned that title by helping and good posting and that should be way it is.
I am not asking for badges as I am sure that i will earn them as I did at seven forums, but it VERY inconsistent here take for example your (pebbly) We have the same # of posts
,you are member #720 I am member #51 you have two badges I have none, confusing isn't it?

Hi, Kodi. This site is essentially still under development. I don't believe the Admins have made a final a determination as of yet as to what the requirements will be here. For all we know, they will not be the same badges or requirements as at the Vista and Seven Forums.

Kodi,
I knew there was somethings about you I liked.
1. Were about the same age----I'm 66
2. Tell it like it is
3. Can handle constructive criticism
4. Could care less what people say or think about me.
They can keep all the badges and titles....I am here to learn and help along the way. A Thank You is priceless!

Kodi;

The Eight Forums members are here to help John (the forum owner) to de-bug the forum software, vBulletin. This is also a newer version of the software than being used in Seven Forums, so all of us are learning how to use it, and what the differences are. Learning new software and customizing it for our needs takes time. We hope to be ready well before Microsoft releases the next Operating System. In the mean time, we are not concerned about being promoted here the way it works on Seven Forums or Vista Forums. Those things will all happen in time as we get closer to Windows Eight. However, we also welcome any public interest in the development of Eight Forums. Please feel free to add your input at any time!

Cheers!
Robert

Robert, I was aware of all of this but some time back John started a thread in 7 forum about ranks and badges and i was under the impression that he had finalized and implimeted it.
It is now obvious that he had not and was updating manually when he got the time.
The only reason i asked was that there seemed to be no consistency to it and now i know why.

Is there a way to fix name colour yet?

~Lordbob
I can't remember where John posted it but it's not a problem.

Half the People on the forum with badges are green, the other half is purple.

John decided just to make a random 50 - 50 split of all the Members/VIP Members.
