  3. You guys ever considered changing names that users are called after 5000 karma?

Guys, "Block" is a little bland for 5000 karma, don't you think? Block is the final name you get, right? You guys ever considered changing Block or adding more names after Block?

I have some suggestions if so:

5000 - Either keep Block or change to Gifted

7000 - Omniscient

9000 - Time Traveler

11000 - Superhuman

13000 - Indestructable

15000 - Otherworldly

17000 - Q

19000 - Dimension X

21000 - Diety

That's way too convoluted for something that doesn't really change much for people besides being able to access another board after 1k anyway.

This is utterly pointless considering that the highest Karma users on the site are barely broaching 9000, IIRC.

I'll be honest, that statement that you made makes no sense. For starters, it doesn't have to be exactly 5000, 7000, 9000, all the way up to 21000. Even if it was that way, then what's the problem? This makes it so the system doesn't have to be tweaked for a huge amount of time. They could do 5000, 6000, 7000, etc if they want, although I would prefer something that takes a huge amount of time as originally stated.

It's fun to see a new Karma name. That's the goal: A fun new Karma name to look forward to.

It's just a minor change, dude. It's a name at different intervals past 5000... This would be more fun than just being "Block".

Yeah a minor change just for fun's sake is exactly the point. You're seriously telling me that a few more names for different amounts of Karma is something that is convoluted? Come on dude, you're exagerrating.

Most of the higher levels, including "? Block" were named by the first users to reach those levels. I doubt they'll be changed.

You can get one Karma a day. Even the top users aren't going to hit 10,000 for 3 years, and the majority of the userbase for maybe decades, assuming the site even lasts that long.

This sounds entirely like adding ranks for its own sake. There's no privileges associated with user levels after 500 Karma, and you have proposed none for these additional levels (not like any are given at any prior levels). If there was a board for the new level, that barely constitutes an award, considering the present user level boards are pretty much barren.

What exactly is there to "look forward to"? An arbitrary counter incrementing for the first time in years, in addition to the other arbitrary counter that increments on a daily basis? I imagine not even the higher-Karma users actually give a damn about their Karma, they just visit and use the boards frequently.

This. If the site admins decide to add a new level above the current level 38, the first several users who reach that level will likely determine the name.
