    This no longer applies to just EOF tempers, this is now an idea for everyone on the group to get a "user type" of sorts under their avatar to distinguish what kinda member type or where they are the most active. So this applies to everyone who is most active in any section and has some type name like "EOF Temper", but something you can only get after you reach 500 posts and it will change as your percentage rate changes. So if you become more active in the blogs, it will change automatically for that.

    New ideas that I think sound better

    I F*****G [censored 'cos of the move] AGREE WITH THIS.
    For once Catboy I totally agree with you!
    Though I think it should be based on % rather than actual posts. A person can post say 500 times in EoF and never post again but still be considered an EoF Temper. They might not want to carry such a shameful honour anymore (like me in my thread yesterday).
    Maybe the title could be 'Unconstructive Assholes'.

    It was meant to be a joke at first and when I hit the post button it dawned on me that this should be a real suggestion, so made a suggestion for someone to move this thread

    I'll play devil's advocate here. Somebody's gotta do it:

    Do you guys think gated communities are good for the temp? How does that promote the love? [​IMG]

    I wouldn't mind playing a part in this. Though I usually find myself at the EOF for finding a good laugh or two.

    Nah.

    If you're a member you're a member no special groups are needed.

    I don't think we are really gated. Most EOF tempers are pretty proud of it and honesty I think most of them would empress this idea and if they disagree they could say message someone and be removed from the group.

    Maybe it could work through a 'Temper Type' section underneath your avatar based on where you post most.
    For example:

    Group: Members
    Posts: 304
    Joined: 7-October 10
    From: Arachne's Web [​IMG]
    Member No.: 264,293
    Type: EoF Temper

    I mean, it wouldn't be just EoF, anyone who has a percentage showing the place where the majority of their posts are would have an option.

    View profile -> Classic Styled Profile -> Profit

    I'm a blogger, so my group would show that I like to post in the blogs.

    You post in the NDS section, your group would show that.

    I also think that it should be calculated when you hit around 500 posts (like the custom title). You could also just turn it off completely until you post enough for the group you want. Or just a selectable icon and title that anyone could do. Certain groups would be unavailable, and your name wouldn't change colors. In case people confuse you for a staffer.

    That's a pretty good idea. So not like a group, but the section you are in the most should be displaced as well like the custom title. I will edit my post to link to this suggestion since I like this one

    Would probably be easier to make the Most Active forum visible on your posts.

    Changing group based on postcount or % of posts in a specific forum is no default function, so has to be custom coded.

    I agree Argentum. I don't see how this can do any harm to the community.
    That said, I don't see what exactly it would bring to the community, either... except a cool little feature.
    If an option could be included in User CP to hide these groups, I don't think anyone could really complain.

    This. I understand people tend to form clicks within the community. But if someone wanted to explore and try new things, their "status" would preclude them from joining certain "privileged" groups. Sounds kinda ugly to me.

    That would be a better idea, but like, "Blogger", "EOF Temper" as the title instead of the group

    If I wanted to be distinguished as one of those crazy EoF MFers I'd put something ridiculous in my custom user title.
