Say Hello to The Rep Grand Group! [07/19/16 UPDATE!]

730 posts in this topic

Hello all! As you probably know, on the vBulletin forums, we had reputation bars under our names. The number of bars was representative of how much reputation we had, and after 500, the bars turned light green. Well, sadly, now we just have a number, and we don't have the distinction of a light green bar. So instead, join me in honoring the people on this forum with over 1000, 1k, or 1 grand of reputation points. Which makes them the famous....

 

Rep Grand Group!

 

Note: The old LGG still exists in it's final updated form. I updated it right before the forum migration, and it can be found here, as well as some nice badges for your signature!

 

This is meant to be a catalog for newbies and experienced forum-goers alike, as to the most notable individuals on the KSP forums. If one of these guys stops by to say hello on a thread, or even give reputation, be sure to say hi!

 

Okay, so I'll start with examining the color-coding that you see around the Forums (and in the Group).

People whose names appear in YELLOW are employees of SQUAD, top level moderators, or they are artificial accounts created by SQUAD. (e.g. SQUAD, Jeb, Bill, Bob, Valentina Kerman)

People whose names appear in GREEN are lower-level moderators, and are in charge of maintaining the Forum.

Without further ado!

Here they are in person, listed in order of decreasing +Rep (as of 03/28/16):

 A special welcome to all of the new members! I wasn't able to catch them all this time, but next time the program will tell me who is new to the group so I can properly welcome them to the group. :)   

A very special thanks to magico13 for giving me a program that spits out the list. I still have to write descriptions, but now I just have to click a button and the list is more or less updated. Once I get into the swing of things, I might even be able to do nightly updates.  Give that guy some rep! And also, thanks to Starwhip for making the very nice logo! Give him some good ol' rep too when you get the chance. :)

 

Speaking of logos, there's also a nice one for you sig! If you're on the list, feel free to use this badge in your sig. Just highlight it and copy+paste it to your sig. :)

Oh, and since the creation of these groups, UpsilonAerospace put over twenty hours of work into it total, making it perhaps the most heavily-edited and painstakingly revised thread in the history of the Forum! And now I will be taking it on, and updating it as much as I possibly can. If you want to briefly thank UpsilonAerospace or me for the work we've done, some +Rep would be a very nice gift. (we don't need it nearly as much as some of the other people on the Forum, though.)

Anyways. Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or revisions that need to be done. If you recently passed 1000 points, or jumped some positions, let me know and I can update the list again. I hope this is helpful to you guys!

Honestly I have no idea where sal_vager went. I'll have to talk with magico13 about it, because I sure didn't delete him from the list. I'll try and find his position and stick him in, then make sure its fixed for next time. :) 

 

Added him in his correct position. Sorry for the delay. :)

Hmm, I doubt he'd be classified as "KSC Staff" which is automatically filtered. Did the "Global Moderator" group just recently get created (within the last week or so)? If so, that's probably why.

Hmm, the member search (tab over to the "Member Search" option and press "Search Content") isn't working at all for me right now, so I can't check it manually. I'm also at work, so I can't check it with the program either.

Most likely just needs the search URL updated in the program settings. @Endersmens: If/when the search starts working again just do a general member search, then sort by reputation. Grab the url from your browser, paste that into the LGU_Settings file under "searchURL", and replace the "page=1" text (at the end of the url) with "page=[PAGENUMBER]"

It'll look something like this: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/search/&type=core_members&group%5B4%5D=1&group%5B19%5D=1&group%5B15%5D=1&group%5B9%5D=1&group%5B8%5D=1&group%5B12%5D=1&group%5B11%5D=1&group%5B3%5D=1&group%5B6%5D=1&group%5B10%5D=1&group%5B18%5D=1&sortby=pp_reputation_points&sortdirection=desc&page=[PAGENUMBER]

 

Here, this one should catch everyone, including the "KSC Staff" which can just be filtered out in the Descriptions file: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/search/&type=core_members&sortby=pp_reputation_points&sortdirection=desc&page=[PAGENUMBER]

@magico13, I'll try that when I get home. Global Moderators have always been a thing, but the migration might've caused issues in that respect.

I know that, but I think they didn't create that user group until recently. The only group I unchecked was KSC Staff, meaning all others that existed at the time were checked. He wasn't showing up because his group wasn't checked somehow, which only would happen if the Global Moderators group didn't exist when I grabbed the URL. He was showing up last Wednesday, which means that group had to have been added some time after that.

The URL I posted at the end of my last post should be future-proof should they add any other groups, since it doesn't specify which groups to use. Hopefully. Unless they change how that works too :P

The program is fixed! Since there aren't a ton of members, I'm gonna rely on you guys to let me know when things change. If you move up a position or pass 1000, make sure to PM me or post here, and I'll update the list ASAP. Otherwise I won't run the updater if there's nothing to update. :)

Don't feel bad, nobody on this list (even RIC would technically be a bit short) has earned 1000 rep on these forums. The previous VB forums gave up to 5 rep per "like". Divide by 5 and you have closer to the actual values.

Don't feel bad, nobody on this list (even RIC would technically be a bit short) has earned 1000 rep on these forums. The previous VB forums gave up to 5 rep per "like". Divide by 5 and you have closer to the actual values.

 

Indeed. It's a bit of a skewed list, it won't increase in members very quickly at all. There's really nothing we can do to help it, because of how rep was transferred. :/

Considering how often the previous list was updated, this should be more suitable anyway.

Well, the problem with the previous list was descriptions. I could've had the positions updated every single day, but the new people wouldn't have descriptions. With this list, I already have the next 70 or so members' descriptions, so I won't have to worry about a flood of new descriptions to write. :)

Not everyone gave 5 points at a time. Rep power started at 1 and climbed to 5, not uncommon to get a rep comment that raised the total by <5.

Also, I'm finding that rep comes in a lot more frequently in the new forum for certain kinds of content... namely, mine. :) Whereas before when a new reader found my comic and liked it, they'd rep the first page for 1-5 points, read the whole thing in one go, leave me a nice note, and then maybe rep me again on another day if they were still following the comic and saw something they liked. Now a new reader will scroll through the thread and 'replike' several comic pages in a row--and continuing readers can more or less rep anything they like, as opposed to repping just the pages they REALLY like, IF they've seen at least four other posts on  the Forum they really liked since the last one of mine they repped. (i.e. "You must spread some Reputation around...") :) So overall, I think I'm getting as much or more rep in the new system for the same posting rate and quality of content.

Indeed, I would say it's safer to divide by ~4. But we'll never know. :)

Which is why I used uncertain terms such as "up to" and "closer to", but that's not really the point.

If YOU are just barely scraping in with an admittedly inaccurate conversion, consider for a moment a newcomer to these forums and whether they will ever make it to this list. It's just a museum exhibit now.

The only way to solve the problem @Randazzo would be to reset rep to 0 and make everyone start again. Not sure what else there is to do.

I'm not so sure. So far it seems to me that people are freer with likes than they were with repping on vB, and can do so more often in a single day. Plus the community grows ever larger, it's easier to accumulate rep now than it was, say, a year ago. We'll see, I guess.

500 rep benchmark reached. 500 more to go. So 2 more years ;)

Ooh! I seem to have joined the 3G group. And congrats to @Red Iron Crown on passing 5G, he's about 1/3 of the way to overtaking SQUAD itself!

I passed 3K posts a little while ago, just after the new forum dropped.

Shame it`s now the 1K rep group, I was in the light green group for a while, got about 75 to go before I join this one ;)

 

EDIT : Just realised you have 3k rep, how did you average nearly 2 rep per post?
