    You forgot to mention that you basically talked to every active user here. :p
    The more contacts you have, the more potential rep you might gather over a short period of time, statistically speaking.

    Some of these ideas are cool and all but with everyone having "custom" awards and user-titles or whatever, would be so confusing in my oppion. Only people who should have custom titles or whatever is moderators and i still think that having custom rank icons for how many posts you have is a decent idea but the posts have to be alot instead of just 100, i think it should be increased due too how low it is, Some people just post short replys just to get there posts up in order just to get that grunt icon. From me i think it should be increased dramatically. Lastly, about the posts i do like the fact of new icons for more posts, other then that i don't like getting awards for other things instead of contests in the arena because everyone would just have all these awards below there rep and ralle or pharaoh_ would have to keep adding award after award every day to each person..that would get quite annoying. as there are alot of members in the hive as well.

    Donating 100$ to the hive will only change your chat icon.

    No, I mean custom user titles, which are currently accessible to all, would be accessible only in exchange for some rep.

    So you again want to take a free feature away from people, like chat colours back then?

    I don't think this would lead towards a more satisfied community...

    The idea of using rep to "unlock" something is interesting, but we shouldn't take something existing away for the sake of finding use for it.

    Chat colors were never free, they were given to donors and staff members, unless there was Christmas.

    Also, satisfaction is not dependent on something as trivial as this, more like having a strong community, nice resources and a good staff. Besides, by the time you find the custom title option in the User CP, you probably will have enough rep to unlock it.

    IMO, this is useless or no point at all, coz a NEW user can deliberately turns to a grunt in just one day...or 3.333 hours to be exact...

    Well, they did say that they might increase the posts needed to get a new rank.
    Or, you could set the requirement by the amount of rep you got? ;D

    ..Or you could set both comment and rep as a requirement. Like.. 100 posts, and 50 rep?
