Default New Usergroup

I created a new usergroup for Donators. Anyone who donates to TLS will be placed in this usergroup. Those that donated should now have a gold username and user rank. I only remember Makoeyes, Tet, and CK donating, so if I've missed anyone, let me know and I'll verify with Yop and change your profile, fgj.

Staff members will only have the gold user rank if they donated, because, well, they're staff members.

and gj. Did you give them that usergroup as a primary or secondary usergroup?

Also, we can give them some benefits now. Would you lot (i.e. donators) like to have one or any of the following:

* Star / icon / whatnot in postbit
* Username effect / thingy
* Increased PM space / larger upload allowance / whatnot
* Access to secret spam section (dunno about pr0n, I doubt that would be prudent and the host wouldn't allow it)
* Limited moderation capabilities (full control over own threads, close / move etc at the very least)
* Listing in the 'View Forum Leaders' bit, and I'm sure that a hack is available that would give you your own page (benefactors). Or on the frontpage. But that's up to you if you want to be listed as a benefactor / donator.

* Others, I'm outta ideas right now, .

I have my own pr0n thank you very much

But all those perks sound awesome. I'm 100% for this.

Good ideas. Limited moderation capabilites for normal users sound like a neat idea.

We'll need someone to goan make an icon, then, .

Also, I should totally give myself a 'webmistress' usergroup, for great elitism, .

Find a host that allows pr0n?

In all seriousness, this makes sense, well done

I based the Donator usergroup off of the "Registered Users" usergroup, so I set it as a primary for all non-staff members. And, it's set as a secondary usergroup for staff members.

Awesome, though it'd be better to have those in between username & user title I think since that's where they are on most other boards. also, I'd put usertitle in bold rather than user rank, but that's just personal taste really,

actually now that I think about it, ranks are directly below usertitle on most boards; they're above usertitle on EoFF and FG. Still, gj on restoring the ranks, .
