hidy ho a couple months(ay!) back we mentioned that it would be cool to give members recognition for conrtibuting to evolt.. i mentioned something like the ebay stars thing( http://pages.ebay.com/help/basics/g-stars.html ) and we debated whether or not to use cubes.. well i've put something up to take a look at. i'm only using cubes as an example here, it doesn't have to be that, its open to discussion(check out my anti aliasing on the little icons, i am a l33t graphix designer! w00p!! ;) here's a sample article page(some work needs to be done on positioning probably) from me and matt: i have 150+ articles, so i get the full cube to denote that i'm 'full of evolt spirit' or something http://test.evolt.org/article/f/17/14332/index.html matt on the other hand has less than 15 articles(i broke it up into 1-15, 16-35, 35+ for this example, it could be anything) so he gets one color of his cube filled http://test.evolt.org/article/f/18/9279/index.html if someone had 16-35 articles, they'd get two cubes filled. these could go on the users page next to their name, and maybe on the front page(?). it doesn't have to be cubes either, if osmeone has a better idea, rock. one problem i see already with cubes though is there are only 3 'levels' you can be at, which kinda sucks.. matt mentioned maybe having an all gold or all silver cube to denote super high conritbuters too. thoughts??? .djc.
