"Inch towards daylight"

« on: July 08, 2018, 07:06:57 AM »

This particular post comes at the tail end of this site but I discovered something odd again. In this case, regarding how a typical user status will change based off of how many posts they've made.

I've occasionally made posts and notifications of this in the past but it's something I felt like pointing out again.

Administrator: Static
Local Moderator: Static

0 -4 posts: Bodiless Spirit
5-49: Heepa Heepa
50-99: Light bearer
100-249: Insurgent Spy
250-499: Insurgent Commander
500-999: Bane of Legates:

Special one's I've made note of:
1337: Leet (Note this only lasts as long as you have this number.)
In the curious case of Alwyn7: Syphon 
- (I'm honestly not sure what happened here. He only has 24 posts but there are several other users with 24 posts to their names as well and they're still listed as Heepa Heepa. This sparked a much earlier memory where I swear I had seen someone else's status as a Blood Rider but it promptly disappeared before I could find it again.)

An earlier assumption I had made was that these changes in status were based off of giving someone either Spell Energy boosts or Taint.  It turned out to be false as my tests failed to yield any results and then the Administrators told me as much.

Let me know if anyone on the site has ever found anything neat like that. Or maybe I just spent way too much time messing around on this site.

Not entirely sure, but I think that it's possible for moderators to override status labels.  Might have been that Alwyn7 was playing a Syphon character in a game with a Mod at one point and got their status turned into their character/class/Heroic Path. 

Not sure about the blood rider or other oddities.

Alwyn chose a title for himself because he asked me after he published a Midnight supplement. Wink
