As you probably noticed, we each have a ranking here on Cruise Freeks as follows:

"Rankings" - You are ranked by the numbers of posts you place
on the board

  • Newbie - 5 posts or under
  • Deck Hand - 10 posts or under
  • Ships Purser - 200 or more posts
  • First Mate - 500 or more posts
  • Captain - 1500 or more posts
  • Admiral - 5000 or more posts
After running the idea by Tina, we are now taking a vote if you'd like a small lapel pin (like the ones the Cruise Lines give for their loyal customers) for Cruise Freeks. If we have a majority vote, Tina agreed to go with it and pinning ceremonies will take place on group cruises.

So please take a moment and/or leave feedback on this idea

I'm not sure us gabby folks should have pins to clal attention to the fact. I think Ill say doesn't matter. I cant imagine sending out real pins to everyone who joins either, maybe a email pin if anything. Not a real pin.

Yea...it could turn into a PITA for Tina?
Maybe it could be an honorary cyber-pin

i just don't think we need another item to keep track off, it is just another expense for tina, and you would not keep the same pin for too long anyways, so my vote would be no pins

I voted "other" because I don't want any more hassle for Tina either.

I had looked up the cost of lapel pins in the past and they weren't cheap. So I am all for graphics being added into the signature or avatar.

On that note, we need a new t-shirt....I was thinking "I'm a freek are you?"

I also have another idea, taken from the DisBoards. There is a "DisBoard fairy" that randomly grabs funny comments made by the poster and puts it in a special space in the avatar. So, for instance, I just read a thread that Pete wrote "I love you, you big furry freek" or something like that. Laughing Well that comment would be grabbed and placed in his avatar. It is totally random. You don't know when it's going to happen. Idea

I like the idea of a cyber pin. Keeps cost down & probably less hassle for Tina.

I vote yes. I always buy a ship pin for my hat to commemorate each cruise. I would wear a rank pin on my hat though not my lapel.

One thing about ranks strikes me as odd the closeness of 5 and 10 posts and then the great gap to 200.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I'm new to this site, and I had no idea how or why these tags were added after your name. Now I know!!! I bet there are others just like me that didn't know this!javascript:emoticonp('cheers')

I just noticed the wording of the rankings.

Deck Hand - 10 posts or under
Ships Purser - 200 or more posts

So between 11 and 199 posts you should have a ranking of man overboard,
( or maybe person overboard )

I voted 'other' for the cyber pins - really like that idea!

(only because I really don't cruise that much, it might be a long time before I got a real one!) LOL
