See the text under my name that says "Life begins and ends with Nu." and the image that goes with it? The problem is that we need as many text and image ideas as possible because we plan to go all the way to 5000 posts since almost everyone has passed the 300 post mark and "Life begins and ends with Nu.". Adding ranks for such a long span of posts requires around 40 extra user ranks.

So come up with as many witty image (you don't need to supply an image, just tell us what it is) and text combinations as possible.

I'll start:
"Heavy swords for sale. Suitable for most RPG Protagonists. Apply now!" (Picture of overly large sword)
"..." (Picture of Quote)

Ehh, 3000 posts are nothing compared to the posts on Roblox HQ (over 10,000 posts by Milez.), nonetheless, I'll help.

Should this be here? After all, this has more to do with the forum itself and not the Cave Story Tribute Site.

But anyways . . .

I was wondering about this, but 40? What? Are these gonna update every 100 posts or something? o_O
IMO we should try to add at least a few more Cave Story and Zelda ones in there to preserve the current theme, and maybe space the older ones out a bit so that "The Ultimate Sword of Extraordinary Magnitude" isn't still at just 250 >_> Maybe make "Life begins and ends with Nu" the final one again, because it has a kind of final ring to it, dontcha think?
A chart or list of the current ones would be nice... and maybe another that shows the spaces to be filled. I never could keep track of 'em.

That was the plan actually.

DoubleThink said:
A chart or list of the current ones would be nice...
"No! Don't OPEN that DOOR!" 0
"Officially Worth 1 Rupee" 1
"Fresh from the Bakery" 2
"Wow! The more I drink of this magical beverage, the more games I can play! Wheee!" 20
"It's dangerous to go alone!" 30
"Wahoo! Upgrade!" 45
"Master using it, and you can have this!" 70
"This is the greatest handgun ever made! You have to ask yourself, do I feel lucky?" 90
"Fly, Fly, Fly!" 125
"I, Ikachan. The Life and Documentary of the OrigiNAL SQuiD." 150
"Huzzah!" 190
"Ha! Ha! Ha! Mega Man is no match for my Mimiga Man!" 225
"The Ultimate Sword of Extraordinary Magnitude" 275
"Life begins and ends with Nu." 300

DoubleThink said:

350, 400, 475, 550, 650, 750, 875, 1000, 1125, 1250, 1375, 1500, 1625, 1750, 1875, 2000, 2000, 2125, 2250, 2375, 2500, 2625, 2750, 2875, 3000, 3125, 3250, 3375, 3500, 3625, 3750, 3875, 4000, 4125, 4250, 4375, 4500, 4625, 4750, 4875, 5000

Though we will figure out the rank order after we have enough rank suggestions, it would seem pointless otherwise. So I would rather we kept on track with this topic. If you need to discuss this then we could do so via PM or wait until after enough suggestions have been made.

So any ideas for the ranks themselves? We still need at least another 35.

Perhaps A Guxt related icon or even the guy from Glasses can be used, considering how Ikachan is also featured as a rank icon here, but I'm not sure what text should accompany them...

Also, would adding new ranks also increase the post requirement for adding a custom user title? I'm so close to 250 posts & I'd rather not have this side objective taken away from me so easily...

No it won't. That is an entirely separate ranking system as far as I am aware. Besides, the original 1-300 rank layout would still be intact.

Would this work:
"I'd give that a 20 out of 20." (Megane guy)

Sounds good to me, but let's wait for another opinion before we make the final decision, just to be fair, I guess.

Another 34 rank suggestions before that happens.

Megane goes up to 30 ._.

Edit: And I think "Have a cig" would be more appropriate, unless that itself wouldn't be allowed...

Megane allows you to get 33 points, if you catch the glasses perfectly each time while jumping (I've done it before).

That's why I believe one of the ranks should be:

(pic of that princess in megane, the sprite)

33 points "Holy Jesus!"

That's actually what it says if you do manage to get 33 points.

Or you might just say "Holy Jesus!".

My Favourite is what she says when you get 10-20 points (i think those are the points) where she says "woof woof woof!".

But yeah, go with my first suggestion.

An image of the dog from Duck Hunt with the quote "That dog!"

An image of a Pokeball with the quote "Gotta Catch em' all"

An image of Pong? with the quote "Bleep, Bloop, Bleep, Bloop"

20 out of 20 = 20/20

Anyone heard of 20/20 vision? This is a game about glasses after all.

As for "Have a cig": writing random quotes from games isn't really the point here.

Last two were cool. :D

The first one wasn't a quote from the game.

If we can find or make a decent lockpick sprite, I'd really like to have:

"Take this Lockpick! You, the "Master of Unlocking", might find a user for it!"

And

Bobomb says: "I need a hug!" <Picture of a Babomb>

And

<Sprite of Dracula> "What is a man!? A miserable pile of secrets! But enough talk, have at you!"

Actually you can get 36 with running jumps, but whatever.

In Soviet Russia, graves keep YOU!
(Image probably needs to be blown up a bit.)

I also hear you can edit your posts and view images in Soviet Russia too >_> Would it be simpler for the purposes of this thread to keep this in the Tribute Site forum or not?
