A brief summary of Neowin User groups


Recommended Posts

Hmm, I don't ever remember seeing a Supervisor yet (other than Fred), but I have seen most ever other type on the forums. Thanks for making them so clear cut Neo, this will help many newer users (especially with the newest created class MVC).

If you go to the Forum's main page, there's a legend at the bottom of all possible groups at Neowin.

Those are links and if you click on one of them, a new page will open with a list of all members of that specific group ;)

There are currently five Supervisors :)

Sweet. I've pretty much had a good idea of what they are, but it's nice to see the explanations in writing. For example, I didn't know what kind of power Supervisors had; now I know who not to **** off :p

It's nice to see a clear list, I always found it a bit confusing when it came to working out who does what etc. I'm sure this will help newer members even more.

The supervisors run around but don't post all the time, they still have to do their work. Fred is indeed here the most but Joel (silly_walks) tends to come along once in a while with his dry humor.

I know this is a slightly old thread, but I do have one question about things like this...

What are the user rankings?

in the profile? The profile is any member or staff can go in to a persons profile and rate them. It does get abused a lot imo. may sites have disabled it.

as for those stars, those are based on your post count and the user titles.

I am asking about the stars, for example 3 = Neowinian3 and 5 = Resident Elite

Oh those are the stats/ "pimps" any site that has ipb or even mybb can create and edit their own. This includes how many stars each person gets.This is something neowin came up with. nothing really, just shows your place on then forum.

Yes, I'm pretty sure he gets it, he's just asking for a list of the titles and how many posts you need to get each one.

What about this other group I see...

Restricted (chat)

Maybe clarify these groups for people who don't know.

are these badges even real?

Unless you're proud of being restricted I don't see them being real. Neobond could also have created a shame pole but I don't see him doing that. Err ... or would he?

There not real, well I'm guessing there not. maybe the av if soe user isn't allowed to change their av, but still, doubtful.

Just people trying to make a point, possibly because they feel that have been treated unfairy by neowin or some Admin.

I personally think it's kinda childish.
