Bonjour, and good-bye?
« on: 14:08, 02 June 21 »
Hej!


I'm still madram, trying not to be too still. Main project for now: http://orgams.wikidot.com/
I also make demos.


I'm afraid I can't write in this forum anymore: I've reached 'CPC 6128' rank.
Going to 'Amstrad 464+' would be a triple regression.

Ι was actually wondering when someone was going to notice that, when I was setting up the ranks :D

So what order should ranks be in? :)

The reverse actually:


6128+
464+
CPC 6128
CPC 664
CPC 472
CPC 464

Same here... I was so happy when I got rid of the insulting CPC464 rank and now fear the 464+ barrier.

With the 464 rank at least you know that if you are contributing, you will skip this rank fast. But the 464+ rank will stay for a LONG time.

Well, seriously, if other people jump in an express their opinion we can change the order.

For the low, low price of €464 you can have your very own rank AND change it as often as you like*

I guess you will not find an order which fits everyone. That is too emotional. If you had a 464, the 6128 was "posh", if you had a 6128, the 464 was lousy. (or whatever else...)

Honestly, I am not a big fan of gamification. It works well, when it is introduced but at some point, frustration kicks. Not necessarily here, but in general. New people with a low rank have a higher probability of leaving the system again. And a high rank also does not necessarily relate to quality. Or even to "activity". Could also be that the rank was achieved years ago, but it stays.

Can't argue with what you say. This was just a very simplistic, built-in ranking system. I don't know if it affects people negatively - have I left fora because my status was 'low'? I don't think so... but then again people can be strange. The ranking list that I compiled is, as you can imagine, the first thing that came to mind. Didn't follow any 'current' order but instead a chronological/spec order. What @SkulleateR said makes sense, but then again it could anger fans of other systems :D

Should we remove the ranking system altogether?

I don't think we need any ranking here (at least I don't ) ... and also you can always see the number of posts, so ....

To me this "ranking" is funny, there's nothing wrong with it. It doesn't really mean anything... I'm a 6128 guy, yet I don't feel offended by being ranked as 6128 Plus! :)

I'm with Targhan... I love the 464 the most, myself, it doesn't mean anything for me either, but hey, what people want!

Ok, let's see what others have to say :) Perhaps @m_dr_m could add a poll to his first post?

But, see now, the Commodore PET was kinda cool, but subsequent models were not (I consider the Amiga a sui generis platform). As for Atari, I am indifferent towards their 8-bitters but I love the ST, whereas Bryce would gladly give me a beating for saying that.

We could use an adapted Elite ranking system ;-) starting at Harmless and Mostly Harmless and ending at "CPCElite"

Should have been able to guess it from your nick here... but didn't. Since when are you in Sweden? Saw you 200x at the Klassentreffen meeting in Erlangen the last time. That 20 years passed waaay tooo quick.
Greets, TFM


Ehhh I was never a fan of Elite :D

Me neither. But... what's about a Starglider system then? Or even better a FireFox system?

You've got to be kidding! I had to endure being called a 664 (a 664! can you fucking believe this?!) for more than 10 years (I think I don't have to mention what this has meant for my personal life), then some random frenchie comes along, complains and suddenly the existence of the notorious cpcwiki-forum-rating-system is to be questioned?! Not before I got promoted to a PCW9512, I say!
