Nice job, George... and jaustendesu for the translation.

超元気なメンバー could simply be Active Member.

画期的なメンバー has always stood for Epoch-Making Member.

George, maybe you should add two additional ones: 5000 and 10,000. The latter should be labeled "must be fluent" after the rumor started by misokatsu or jstn a long time ago. As for the 5000, you need to come up with something....

Also, no YesJapan Staff badges? Poor Dave... :(

I also suggest doing a new achievement for members with many posts under the "Japanese Language & Study Discussion" forum. Kinzokusei no Inu would easily sweep the competition :mrgreen: This is so people are encouraged to be active there.

On the downside, the achievements are now hidden and only visible under the member page. I understand that's done because of space constraints. However, maybe you can also have small stars for the course completion status. Someone who completed the first course would get one star and those who completed the 5 courses would get 5 stars. To remove any ambiguity, you can display it like that "Courses: ★ ★ ★" or similar... you can have different colors (silver and gold stars, for instance) for 70% and 100%, respectively.

Musouka... these are great ideas.
Do you want to be a forum admin?

I like the course completion stars idea.
When I have time I will add that function.

@Musouka
Welcome to the YesJapan Forum Admin team!
I have made you an Admin. Although I am not sure what this changes.
I might have to make you a moderator also.

Your input is valuable to all of YesJapan since you are on the site almost as much as me.
Let me know what else you need.

Should I make an Admin badge?
Or do you like being the only Bakuhatsuteki na member? (soon to be uchuuteki)

こちらこそ宜しくお願い致します! :D

I'm okay with the badge but you can change the text above it if you wish (not a big deal, though). 8)

@Musouka - Changing that text above is not so easy. I will try to find another way to distinguish ADMIN from other users.

@Everyone - Do you think we need ranks that fall between 100 and 500? It seems like a big gap to me to have to post 400 more times to get to the next rank.

What do you think? Should we add more?

Don't worry about that. It's not really necessary.

I guess adding a 200, 350, 5000 & 10000 ranks would make sense. This way we can have 9 ranks for total:

100
200
350
500
1000
2000
3500
5000
10000

You can also add a 50 to make them 10 :)

Ohhhh~ congratulations Musouka! =D
After all your hard work, you should get a raise. In that I do mean money! ;D Haha. xDD

I do like these new forum ranks! :D
They're really really appealing to look at! OwO

Musouka is the only 2000+ member. o3o

I noticed there's a YesJapan Steve or something. Are there many of these "YesJapan" accounts? Were they all admins, and where have they gone? D:

Haha, thanks. Most of my past posts were nonsense, unfortunately :lol:

There was a time when we had forum-post matches or something. This was probably my finest hour, haha!

Is that was that was? I remember I had to ban NoF for his constant posting of obscene sounds to the forum. I mean after every post he would post "sluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurp" or something like that. It was pretty irritating.

It was so long ago I don't really remember, haha! I think we just played that for fun (teasing each others about post count and such)... You may remember Cyberia and his Yayyyyy! comments and the first-ever locked thread (which is now unlocked).

YES! It was Cyberia! I am pretty sure I banned him for a bit. That was so irritating!
He is a good guy though. :lol:
