@puddingcup: your post counts determine the number of stars and rank. GAF staffs (admin and mod) will have 5 stars but in different colour.

Cos Hoardz is moar handsome + smart 'en me. 'as why. if and when I ever finally take him to flight school, I will give myself an extra star.

But yeah... its post count. Admins & mods are exempt from star increases but not from the corresponding post count based groups. Tbh I've never paid much attention to the stars.

Admins and such get different colored stars, sonars aren't meant to be good to signify hes a higher ranking officer, they're pretty boring though should definitely up grade them in the next forum update, if any one wants to make up some little Gundam related rank insignia (bout 5 ranks) go for it and send em in,;)

Feddie & zeon insignia would be cool. We could set up voluntary membergroups and ask what faction you belong to.. ;D

Nah mate it's a piece of piss. Go look in admin>membergroups>and select modify on one of the existing mebergroups, change star.gif to zeon_insignia.gif for the Zeke group, upload the gif to the Theme_Dark/images and you're away.

The only difficulty would be in setting up different post based groups/ranks for the Zekes and the Feddies. I don't know how we'd do that. Maybe there's a mod..

Which rank calls which logo would be a simple matter of uploading the zeon and federation insignia in the correct sizes to the images folder of your theme, and changing the file that each post group pulls up. Essentially no coding would be required for that part anyway.

Here's one that solves pudding's question: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=304163.msg2011784#msg2011784

Hmmm... there's no mod to make two seperate post count based groups as far as I can see, but perhaps by creating one group for Fed and one group for Zeke, and linking them to the post count via the above mod, we could get them to call on different images based on their parent group. Does that even make sense?

I think I can have a crack at it, but first I'll need transparent background Fed and Zeon logos in the correct sizes. If it works we can consider adding other factions from other universes later on.

This may be useful: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=225743.0 (just pooling ideas)

Split off into a new topic ;D

I like this idea. I reckon it would be ultra cool if you could choose a side and have zeon/feddie insignia instead of stars. Even cooler if we could have different factions from different universes, and even more cool if you could choose/switch sides yourself!

ye the post based groups it what i meant they are global to all based on posts alone (go figure lol) it shouldnt be too hard to add a profile box to mark where your loyalties lie and have and insignia get displayed for that , but altering the post count stars based on that profile box seems harder id be surprised if there wasnt already a mod for it though

Liking this idea - Zeon for me! ;)

Is there a way to link the ability to choose your faction into the profile page?

close but that seems like something way more powerful then we need, we only need to add the thing to the profile so we can display it over in the side there your link appears to go all out with group specific comments and such good starting point though

this seems more like it, from there we should be able to use that custom profile field contents to display the insignia in the side box over there <<<<<<<<
