The following changes are now in motion here at ACS:

  • Members can now upload their own avatar, max size is 100x100
  • Members can now search
  • There is a new senior members group, when a member reaches 1500 posts they are promoted to senior member. I created the senior member group because some members here at ACS would be subject to flaming if they became mods because of their squad affiliations. The senior member group is used to highlight contributions to the ACS community by normal members. This group has extra storage space for Pms amoung other things. (thinking about making a private forum for senior members, what are your thoughts?)
  • Members can now edit their own posts
  • http://www.acecombatforums.com is a short cut to the ACS forums. (may not work for everyone yet, I just registered it)
I am also currently looking at revising the forum rules to condense them into a clear & conscise list to clear up any confusion about the future direction ACS wishes to take. The new rules will include a clause involving the senior member group and your warn level. This group is only for members who follow the rules so even if you have enough posts you can be kicked out. We also are not stupid so if you spam-post-whore your way into the group, don't expect to stay long. :lol:

I would also like to mention the image gallery again, so far only 150 images have been submitted. Please submit your collection of images to http://forums.acecom...autocom=gallery.

p.s My profile comments need some love.

Looks like some cool stuff, but, what would the senior members really DO?

And, what is considered spam, because I see a HELL of a lot of completely pointless posts.

The senior members are not required to really DO anything, it's just a symbol of their contribution to the community.

I don't want to get too specific on what spam posts are and are not, but I was referring to blatant crap posts. :lol:

I LOVE YOU.
Not really, disregard that last statement, sorry.
WOHOO, NOW WE CAN USE OUR OWN AVATARS.
And, since I'm a senior member, of course I support the idea of our own form.

Heard you're still looking for mods for the Gallery. I sent you a PM regarding my 'application' to possibly be a mod there, and I still haven't recieved a reply. So I'm just curious about your opinion on that.

And a Senior Members subforum would be great! The point at which you recieve that title should be raised above 1000 posts, though. Any spammer can get to 1000 in a week or so.

Well, few people have over 2,000 posts, right?
It should also be judged on how long you were at ACS.
I say the requirments are at least being active on ACS for 6 months, and 1,000 posts.

I may raise it after getting feedback from some people.

Regarding moderators for the gallery, I believe I posted that we need more submissions before I take on any mods. 150 images can be easily managed by the current team. If the gallery starts to grow I would be very interested in bringing people on.

What about 1500 posts? A fair compensation between 2000 and 1000. Oh, and be an active members for at least 6 months, as Unstung mentioned.

And as for the Gallery mods, if you think it's under control, Lionheart, that's up to you, not me; so all is well. I just thought that all the subforums had a 'specialised' mod, why not for the Gallery? But yes, it seems under control, so we'll let it lie until it gets some more submissions.

Problem with that is a guy who has been here for a while can still not post a lot, thus not contribute at all....

special consideration of course can be made, Im sure.


I completely understand what you are saying here. The reason I am hestitant to do this is because then a flame war will start about favoritism.

I also made the promotion at 1500 posts.

I don't really think it is necessary to have it for 1500 posts since I don't think anyone can get that many in less then 6 months, and maybe Lionheart and the
other Admins could choose who has contributed to the community.

Yes, and I like the ideas.

We'd prefer something more objective than letting mods select them.

That's the whole point. 1500 requires you to not only get acquainted with the forum, but it also means you need a decent amount of experience time on the board, since 1500 takes a while to reach. And mods don't permit spam for the sake of reaching 1500, so 1500 WILL take you a significant amount of time to reach.

Hence why it was raised to 1500.

I strongly agree with the fact it takes a while to get to know everone. I have over 800 posts and I still learn things about peoples personalities that I wouldn't have guessed.

I just really started getting to know everyone, so, 1500 you should definately know almost everyone of note.

Is the change automatic when you get to 1,500?
