Trophy Points and Reforming the Rank System

    Again, based on discussion I've seen in other threads, I think this might be something that's worth getting people's opinions about.

    Currently, we have a rank system (Haki), and a Trophy Points system that are (mostly) unrelated. What I'm suggesting here is that we incorporate one into the other, i.e. have rank be based on a User's number of Trophy Points.

    How would this work?

    A user's rank, and therefore username colour, would change based on the number of Trophy Points. Given the current trophy point totals of users, as well as the amount of points rewarded per trophy, I'd suggest the following tiers:

    100 points > 500 points > 1,000 points > 2,500 points > 5,000 points > 7,500 points > 10,000 points > 15,000 points > 20,000 points

    With each rank awarding a different colour. The colours are up for debate (as a mod I wouldn't have one of these colours anyway so I don't care as much, lol), but any final decision would be @Owl 's to make.

    As for rank titles, if it's a One Piece forum it's got to either be WG or Pirate themed. I'm going to suggest the pirate theme, since I think it fits better with the forum's motto/mantra ("We are all nakama"). These titles are just a suggestion, so feel free to oppose:

    Cabin boy > Crew Member > Navigator > First Mate > Captain > Supernova > Shichibukai > Yonko > Pirate King

    Why change the rank system?

    This change would have three main positives:
    • Trophy Points would finally serve a purpose
    • Users would have incentive to take part in competitions that award Trophy Points
    It also gives some of the older members, who are long past the Haoshoku Haki requirements, chance to get new cool stuff for their profile.
    I don't know much about how the ACP works, but this change wouldn't require wholesale changes to the forum's interface, just changing the conditions for being awarded a certain username colour.

    What about my Haki? *sobs*

    Currently, all getting Haki does is change your username colour - there are no other benefits (or lack of) to it, so changing the system wouldn't cause users to lose out (since you'd still have the trophies for post count/time spent on the forum). But if you want a reminder of the Haki days for nostalgia's sake, I'm sure some kind of collector's item trophy could be made (one that's not worth points though, since it'd be unfair to members who joined after the change).

    Are there any problems with this?

    In short, the main problem concerns the number of distinctive colours. I'm sure @Grin and I wouldn't mind sacrificing our purple for a different colour for the cause, but whether or not this would be popular rests on how similar implemented colours are to existing userbars that wouldn't be changed (which are Moderator, SMod, Administrator, Member of the Season and YouTube Team). But if people don't mind getting different shades of the same colour, then this is no longer a problem.

    Thoughts?

    Forgot we even had a trophy system

    Anyway I like the rank for it so far.

    Lets go with @Robin-Senpai Is The Best color scheme.

    The titles seem fine

    I say go for it.

    Alter it though since it's a blatant reference of course.

    I'm pretty sure that color scheme will have to be slightly altered (there's still hope @Grin)

    I agree with these changes... Finally our trophies would have a purpose... Also, I love to see what @Robin-Senpai Is The Best suggested as colors...

    I’m fine with this change until I become one with the Haoshoku.

    I really like this idea! But could we please make it with different shades of green so I can always get a green name? :D

    Also, can't we get a beli system? >.>

    I don't like this, the best kind of green is missing :|

    I believe more focus should be given toward revamping the trophy system. If it were to be utilized towards it maximum potential, it can be the core to most of the events that can happen in this forum.

    I agree with @JollyR on this part. If colors are the only concern, it should be no problem. As there are colors enough in the universe.

    But the only way to get points is joining something in the creative zone, posting a shitload or getting a shitton of likes. As suggested the theorist of the month and such ideas could indeed change the art throphy system to a forum thropy system.

    I like this idea, and since we're getting this from late Marineford, I suggest the staff team have some Marine ranks, unlike the normal members.

    I like this idea a lot (even though I also REALLY like the Haki system)! Maybe we don't have to get rid of Haki as a whole, and just keep those (so the Haki ranks related to post count) as titles, instead of having them determine name colours. That way, your whole system would still serve its purpose and the effort done for reaching certain Haki ranks wouldn't feel lost in a way. But that's also just a suggestion of course. :P

    One thing about the actual rank...Maybe we can get one with marines rank??

    This is supporting one side of One Piece world. Some people actually like the admirals and marines, nothing wrong with liking the other side. However if it cannot be separated then just ignore what I said.

    *cries uncontrollably in the corner*

    Green Piece Forum: Opening 2018

    I always thought the whole "Fleet Admiral" thing and the Admiral names thing they had going on with the staff there was kinda tacky lol, I'm happy just to be a plain ol' mod

    I think if @Owl decides to give this the go-ahead, I'll make a poll asking if people want pirates or marines.

    If there was a way to choose your side, that'd be pretty cool though...

    If we take the 9 ranks and the 5 groups that you mentioned then it totals 14 colors.

    We can use the color wheel for the best distribution of colors.

    [​IMG]

    That color wheel has 12 colors.

    Other colors that can be used are Silver, Brown, Gold and Hot Pink.

    That totals 16 colors. :pervert:

    The ranks I think should be a mixture of Pirates and Marines and other One Piece titles.

    I agree with the change.
