[New Feature] KaM Skill Level

Hi all!

Today I've added a profile field called 'Kam Skill Level'. Here you can define the skill level you think fits you best. The reason I've added this, is that there were several topics discussing who's pro and who's not, etc.
This way, everyone can determine this for him or herself and can increase it when they think they have become better.

Also, this allows you to check the skill level of someone (if entered) before playing them online :)
You can see the skill level (if entered) in the user's profile or in his mini-profile while viewing a topic (below his avatar).

I had to come up with a few levels myself, so they've become the following:

  • Noob
  • Fair
  • Skilled
  • Good
  • Pro
  • Expert

I'm not sure these are the best, so if you have any suggestions I'd be glad to hear them :)

Re: [New Feature] KaM Skill Level

Skilled and Good are almost the same, easy to misplace IMO. Other than that it's great )

Do you have any suggestions for either one of them?

Re: [New Feature] KaM Skill Level

I'm not English native speaker, but "Skilled" sounds strange for me being in the middle. Would "Average" replacing it be a better choice?
edit: so, maybe Average should replace Skilled, and Skilled should replace Good?


(also, I hope no one's going to laugh that I consider myself "good"... haha)

Ah great suggestion! Why didn't I think of that? :P

I'll change it immediately.

Edit: Done. Thanks :)

PS. Maybe I should drop 'Level' and just call it 'KaM Skill'. What do you think?

Re: [New Feature] KaM Skill Level

I agree, average sounds better. What about... Beginner (instead of Noob) --> Fair --> Average --> Good --> Veteran (instead of Pro) --> Expert? I think we should try not to use the terms 'pro' and 'noob'. I've also tried to come up with a word to exchange 'fair' with (I think fair could also be average or even good) but couldn't come up with something good.

HAHAHAHAHA!
Kidding of course, I've never played with you as far as I know so I can't even judge. :P

Re: [New Feature] KaM Skill Level

I agree with TDLs scale, it sounds better that way. Maybe Fair = Amateur?

I updated 'Noob' to 'Beginner'. Fair, Average and Expert are untouched. Good remains Skilled and Pro became Veteran.

I think 'Fair' isn't that bad, but as always I'm open to suggestions (although I don't think Amateur is the one).

I personally think "okay" would be better.

Re: [New Feature] KaM Skill Level

I think that there should be an option to not display a skill level so someone can show beginner if he/she wants to ;)

Re: [New Feature] KaM Skill Level

If you select "Beginner" it shows nothing. What if we want to show "beginner"? (Read my post again and you'll see)

So if there is a button to do that they can show beginner if they want? So pressing a "Do not display rank" button will show beginner? And I thought I was confusing :?
