The ranks are messed up... frequent comes before regular ...

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I read the post about the ranks being changed, but I just noticed that people who have 100+ posts are rated as 'frequent' members, with 3 stars, and people who have 200+ posts, like myself, are rated as 'regular' members, with only 2 stars!

I noticed that I am not in the "gold" anymore....
Is it wrong or has it been changed? I have been a Forum Superstar for a long time & now I'm back to being a forum fanatic. I'm a little frustrated about it. What's going on? icon_smile.gif

Jackie mentions in this post in the Cake Decorating Contest forum that she changed the rankings for a reason, one being that she is going to make it mandatory that anyone must have a ranking of 20 in order to submit a pic to the contest

icon_cry.gif I am in shock at the moment..I read the "post" on the ranking..HOWEVER...I have 97 under my belt...I do not agree with "taking away" from those who do get on this thing everyday....because it's a great site and everyone is so supportive.

But oh well,,, icon_mad.gif it's just a "star"..
The contests should only be limited to those who are actually members of this site and those out there who are "pro's" in the field should not participate. It makes ME feel inept..that my work is not good enough for those really REALLY GREAT pics I have seen..I know I got me some talent, but NOT THAT talents like them there pro's out there.........

"Just venting"......... icon_twisted.gif
And by the way,, why is my two orders from this site not being delivered until August 10th?? I've never heard of waiting almost a month and a half for something I purchased...... icon_eek.gif

I personally vote on a cake for it's personality and orginality, I never base the cake on people's username or how long they've been decorating.
The stuff is not coming right away because Jackie has to submit the order to the people making the stuff for her.
Think about it, she might not have the money up front for the goods, but she still wants to get the product to us. She may also be getting a feel for what will be the best seller items so that she can keep a large stock of those particular items.
I have no problem waiting for my stuff, it's not like I can get cakecentral.com stuff anywhere else. icon_lol.gificon_wink.gif

...that's why they are called Pre-Orders! Jackie has just selected the design and then it takes time to make all this cool stuff~

How though crash do we constitute a "Pro"? Some would say I am a pro because I own a shop...however I don't think so because I have only been doing this almost 2 years and have had NO classes or formal training. We cant limit people due to their ability or lack of it.

I have no problem with a preorder-how many times have you ordered something to have it "backordered" or not available until xxxdate-same here-and it's a unique item so specialization takes some time too. As far as the stars go-"it doesn't matter how many times you come to the dinner table-just as long as you visit sometimes"-as my grandma used to say- input is important whether its alot or just a little-...
What you do may be a "little thing" but "little things" add to alot!

Hi CrashDummy2

All of our orders are pre-orders for the following month. You can read the full details here.

I placed red text under each product description that they are not available until Aug. 10th. I apologize if this was unclear.

I had to re-arrange the forum ranks. I will be using them later on for rewards and other "rules" type situations with the contest (having to be a Jr. Members etc). This will not take affect until the next contest. For the current 4th of July contest, entries can be made by anyone.

I wasn't trying to "take away" anyone's status, I simply needed to create more evenly spaced rankings. Sorry about that, I hadn't realized just how special the rankings meant icon_redface.gif
I would have made a bigger announcement about doing it before I did. Im sorry about that!
