I just did a bit of an update on the "stars" which you can find either under you're name when you post or on your profile page.
The point of this system is to encourage users to post, and help newer users identify knowledgeable individuals.
As it stands this is how the star system runs:
The default rank is "New Slammer" with 1 yellow star.
The next rank up is "Junior Slammer" with 2 blue stars. You need 50 posts to achieve this.
After that is "Experienced Slammer" with 3 purple/lavender stars. You need 100 posts to achieve this.
Next is "Senior Slammer" with 4 silver stars. You need 250 posts to achieve this.
Then "Shrek-tier Slammer" with 5 black stars. You need 500 posts to achieve this.
and finally there is "SuperSlammer" with 5 green stars. You need 1000 posts to achieve this.
After that there is Administrator rank which is 5 red stars,
Moderator rank with 5 yellow stars
and some SB staff such as Graphics and TO have 3 teal stars.
The purpose of this is to encourage discussion and though among the forum, so if you would like to help boost your post number I'd suggest either doing some SSS research on some unexplored charactors or chatting in off-topic.
Please keep in mind outright spamming will be punished as it does not contribute to any discussion and is an eyesore to look at.
Any comments and suggestions about the system are encouraged so post them here and I'll take them into consideration.
Thanks everyone, I hope this has made clear the star system and I hope you all keep exploring the meta!
