Member Ranks


Recommended Posts

Rank System


What is it?

Under the member profile, there is a rank shown. The rank is awarded by the amount of content the member posts.

When members accumulate a certain amount of points through posting content they will be given a new rank.


Content: Includes everything from Adding Artwork, Creating Topics and Posting Replies.

Adding Artwork to the database will earn the member 10 points.

Creating Topics in the forums will earn the member 10 points.

Posting Replies in the forums will earn the member 05 points.


Why is it needed?

There is no need for this; I thought it would be a fun feature that gives something back to members for their contribution.
All the rank icons have been custom made for OVGA, and later on we will animate them.

Rank Points
Newbie 0 points
Amateur Artist 100 points
Art Student 300 points
Pixel Artist 750 points
Concept Artist 1,250 points
Storyboard Artist 2,500 points
Character Designer 5,000 points
Illustrator 10,000 points
VG Box Artist 15,000 points

Thank You!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Any ideas/changes are always welcome!

I wanna be the very best
That no one ever was
To imagine them is my real test
To paint them is my 'cause

I will travel across that land
Searching far and wide
Teach myself to understand
The power that's inside

I'm an artist, gotta draw 'em all, it's you and me
I know it's my destiny
I'm an artist, oh, I'm my own best friend
In a world I must pretend.

I'm an artist, gotta draw 'em all, a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me and I'll teach you, I'm an artist

I gotta draw 'em all

I gotta Draw em' all

I'm an artist.

Are the points retroactive? I kind of remember that everything was 1 point, haha

Maybe you are thinking of the post count. I reset the system and calculated everyone's points based on the total contribution.

I have added the member's points to the profile sections so that you can keep track of your Rank Progress.
Clicking on your points score will take you to the Progression page.

Two more posts @Sanford_US, and you will progress to an Art Student.
