    Right now the software is set so that premier status badges show up unless you are an OTBS member. If you are an OTBS member then that badge takes priority over the Premier Status badge.

    We can change this if everyone wants us to but I need to know where everyone stands on this.

    Theoretically, we could let Premier Status take priority and you OTBS members could put your OTBS status in your signature or in your custom user title.

    We will run this poll for 7 days and let the majority rule on the issue.

    I ain't either yet so I don't care[​IMG]
  3. For me, premier shows who really puts their money where their keyboard is, so thats my stand.  OTSB is a badge of honor (in my opinion) and always looked cool in a signature.  But since I don't have that honor, my opinion on this is kinda moot!
  4. What would the overhead be to just make a "premier\otbs" badge?  Or would that be impossible or too much overhead to accomplish?

    Anyway, at this point I am neither, but it was just a suggestion.  Choosing between the two would be like choosing a favorite between my kids.

    Yes being both a Premier member and OTBS knight. I think that the OTBS should be a Badge of Honor I know I took the award that way and I worked hard for it too. Now the premier members do also help keep this place here and running so it to should be on your profile to be seen by all and maybe all will join it to.

    I'm leaning towards putting the OTBS info in your sig and hving premier member displayed by my username.

    They are working on getting the software to allow 2 badges. I think what Jeff is trying to do is to find a work around until this is accomplished.

    I voted for OTBS, although I am a premier member and not OTBS, yet....[​IMG]

    I belong to another organization where you can buy in to different "awards". Doesn't really mean much to me. There is one group in that organization, however, that you have to be nominated and elected to be a part of. That is where the honor is and what means something to me.

    my vote is for the OTBS badge to be more prominent ,   I care more about OTBS status  vs   premier membership status, one status can be bought the other is earned.

    Also I block all signatures since many take a long time to load.

    Hey Jeff.. I would like to see them be able to use both as Brian said ... The problem that i had the other night is the new place wasn't letting us ( normal folks) change our user title.( like we could on the old site)..... You admins could do it and Brian was nice enough to change mine for me..So u may wanna look into that before u make your decision.. Unless of course ya'll have already looked in to that, In that case i would quote Gilda, " nevermind"....[​IMG]

    OTBS should be the High Exalted.

    After reviewing the "what it takes" to be voted OTBS, I think there isn't much higher

    . A Premier membership doesn't say about a person what the OTBS definition does.  My $0.02

    I honestly thought all users could change their own custom user title.. Interesting

    I will definitely check on that

    Personally I prefer the OTBS badges be shown people have earned them if they have them. It would be nice to show two badges in the future if we can.

    If I were OTBS which I doubt will happen anytime soon, I would want to see that badge.  That truly is a badge of honor that must be earned.

    Being a premier member, I'm almost embarrassed to have that badge up the point that I'm concerned that some new members will consider my posts more valuable just because I have that badge.

    I'd rather get to choose my own color scheme and customize my layout than have a badge as a paying member but that's for another post.

    Buying a badge?  What, because I supported this site in the contribution of funds to help in it's upkeep and continuance on the Internet, it's to be considered buying a badge?  Certainly OTSB is an earned honor and I acknowledge that but to denigrate those who've shown an active interest in supporting this site, to wit, paying for the privilege to be here, leaves me shaking my head.
