those are cool, but i think it would be better if they showed a picture of each type of ride in action instead of just a piece of track.

I was trying to avoid referencing any particular coaster to avoid members getting in arguments over which coaster should have been used for the picture. I didn't want people to be a Millenium Force Poster or a Viper Poster or a Ghostrider Poster. I just picked a more or less typical color scheme for each track type. These are a rough version to see if everyone likes the idea.

Great, it would be perfect if you could even add the trains

Flix

i would like them this way, considering they ARE my idea...<IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">
<BR>
<BR>i am j/k
<BR>
<BR>i like them, but onething, could you put the real pic of the track, and maybe, a train or something?make them look a little more professinal, more "thrillride!" look, casue i think the real ones do not refelct TR! professinal look. (IMHO)

dont change them, just add higher rankings, and prestigous rankings, because i have a feeling by the end of summer there will be 5 people with 2000 posts

06-19-2001, 03:51 PM
I think they are cool, but the idea of diff. kinds of coasters would be pretty cool too.

I like them but you should put coasters on them. Don't make it a specific coaster, just a typical train.

i thin kthe ones now r fine, but i think that pretty soon peeps will be getting too many. i mean, already Kraken and Anacodna and a whole bunch of peopel are up to Chairmans and some of them are heading straight on in to CEO by summer or so....

I like them better than my current one, but they could look a little more realistic.

I do like these member rankings and the fact that there are many of them but member rankings after coaster terms would reflect more of the theme of this board and site. I wouldn't mind if we switched or stayed the same.

I think you should have many different pictures of coasters for each level and on edit profile the user can select which coaster they want for their level.

Well, I'm not a Chairman yet <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif"> but I think that those ideas are cool. I think that you just need to add a few more types of "Coaster Poster" though (as in my idea at the bottom of the page <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif"> )

I like these ones ok, but I mainly think we need more rankings. Instead of having:
<BR>0-25
<BR>26-100
<BR>101-250
<BR>251-500
<BR>501-800
<BR>801-1250
<BR>1251-200
<BR>2001-
<BR>I think we should have something like:
<BR>0-25
<BR>26-75
<BR>76-150
<BR>151-250
<BR>251-400
<BR>401-575
<BR>576-700
<BR>701-850
<BR>851-1000
<BR>1001-1250
<BR>1251-1650
<BR>1650-2000
<BR>2001-2500
<BR>2501-3000
<BR>3001-4750
<BR>4751-6000
<BR>6001-
<BR>Just to make hings a little more interesting. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

<BR> I like it! I'm a woodie, i think it would be cool if we could pick the colors!

squeemu
06-22-2001, 04:16 PM
I like them, I just wonder why woodie is so far down on the list. Everyone knows a good woodie belongs way up above the gigacoaster! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Tom Zeliff
06-22-2001, 04:20 PM
I was loosely following heights of different types of coasters, and then the evolution of technology in them.
<BR>
<BR>Actually it's good to have woodies closer to the top of the list. Most members won't ever reach the 2000 mark for posts. This way all you need is just 100 to be a Wooden poster, so many members will acheive this one! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Hey Tom, the new images look great but try to make the backgrounds transparent so you don't see the white box when it is on a gray background.

Tom Zeliff
06-22-2001, 04:28 PM
I'll be working on that next week and slowly fix them all with the proper alpha channels. For now it's good to see them implimented.

The original ones were better. These look very amateurish and I don't think they will be as fun as the originals. Oh well....not my site

RCTfreak
06-22-2001, 07:16 PM
This is much better then rhe old ones (no offnece)
<BR>I think the new system might make people post more to move up to different coaster ranks

These ones are much, much better!

i think that these new ranlkings are whack and the old ones should be returned ASAP

<BR>I have to agree with you there . I would prefer a ride picture than a piece of track

Mabee show a car on the track since the track can look simalar.

The tracks aren't very accurate looking either

what program did u use to make them?

Raptor
06-23-2001, 08:13 PM
These track icons are OK, but its hard to tell what rank a person is, because everyone has different opinions on what the best type of coaster is. I think you should use real pictures of the trains, or how about an ID card that says you work for a coaster company! You'd start with something small like TOGO and eventually move up to B&M or Intamin!!

Some people will never be satisfied with anything. Keep them, change them, modify them, and some people will find something to complain about I am sure.

Tom Zeliff

Arlok: I used 3D Studio Max to model the track segments and Adobe Photoshop to scale them down and add some other stuff to them. As for them not being accurate, I researched everyone of the track styles and built them as closely as I could. Only the Jr. Poster image was made up from scratch.
<BR>
<BR>I'm glad that many of you are enjoying these new icons.

man, this stinks. i put a post in general disscussion on how they got here and what rank was what, and some mod locked it because peole got into a discussion about what was better, the old or new! Im a little (LOT) mad at him for that... i know he locked it because of the same thing, but what about my question?
