    Okay so here's the breakdown of user tiers from the earlier thread.

    Bronze Tier [​IMG]
    how: 6 months seniority and 100 posts
    perks: 5 free classified ads, 500 private message inbox

    Silver Tier [​IMG]
    how: 1 year seniority and 200 posts
    perks: 10 free classified ads, 1000 private message inbox, can send PM to 10 people at once

    Gold Tier [​IMG]
    how: 1.5 years seniority and 300 posts
    perks: 15 free classified ads, 1500 private message inbox, can send PM to 15 people at once

    Special Tier: Old School [​IMG]
    how: 3 years seniority and 500 posts OR previous doo-hickey owners
    perks: 20 free classified ads, 2000 private message inbox, can send PM to 20 people at once, and access to a new private Old School forum 8)


    As you can see the post requirements are pretty easy to achieve within the times allotted. Hopefully that discourages post whoring. I wanted to use the thanks system for this but couldn't because of technical reasons.

    Again . . . thank you for everyone who had ever paid for a doohickey. Much appreciated :beer:

    Looks good. As far as post whoring goes the mods do a great job of deleting all the riff raff.

    It seems it is a little buggy because I have all four doo-hickey's and I have only been here for 2 years (not that I mind the old school one :p).

    I think it would be cool to maybe add "x" amount of thanks for the higher ones (I was thinking gold and above) as it would discourage people from "post whoring."

    Definitely a great change. Hopefully the classifieds is going to rock out again and stop the post whoring.

    Like the new tier system. Nice rewards for being a member a few years. How do I access the new "Old School" forum?

    **Nevermind I found it!!!**
