We seem to have a concensus about Associate, Member, ..., Senior, Fellow.

Check this excel sheet:


I added another option. If I missed somebody´s opinon, please let me know.



Regards,
FSSM



Thanks FSSM I was jsut about to look back to collate the ideas for a poll as suggested by Arya. Thanks. OK a quick poll it is then.

Dear Simon,

I think this consensus wont going to an end, or at least it will for a very long time. And to be frankly I think its already went too far with the main topic.

IMO, we should use the polling method to determine which format that should fit in. FSSM is making good move by merge all of our opinions together. I guess you can pick few formats that you think will suit for our needs, and let the poll decide which one is the best.


Regards,


Arya

Dear All,

At the risk of my creating more head-spinning, Simon’s excel sheet wud appear to demonstrate that (overall) there is a substantial consensus of name satisfaction with all the ranks except one, column F. (I appreciate some proposals hv multiple changes to maintain a logical progresssion, I’m just looking at the overall appearance). I deduce F's existence is considered (majority) “useful”, but of difficult naming ??

I suggest that any name choice shud, at a minimum, be (a) having a readily understandable meaning, (b) reasonably, understandably, consistent with respect to it’s preceding/succeeding rankings, © look usable on a certificate ( :rolleyes: )


Rgds / Charles.C

PS Sorry, I posted this before I noticed the poll was already up so only the 2nd para is operationally relevant.

The poll was a good idea. I still feel peer suits better with respect to the contribution made by the members who devote some time to share their knowledge, experience and information to help others.

I think the preference for a name for each rank, at least for non-English countries, is related to how familiar it sounds and what idea it delivers to our brain. I tried to find all the terms at the Oxford Dictionary, but I just got more :doh: .

Anyway, maybe we will have to take into context all the ranks whenever we need to say how important is our certificate. :smarty:

I think in the UK principal would be the best choice and that's why it's my choice. Obviosuly with this being a very international forum we will not please everyone no matter the choice. So I agree with you totally FSSM.

Maybe we can put the ranks on the CoC itself???

Not many answered the poll but it was conclusive - based on the results I will now set up the new grades of membership based on the following.

Associate – AIFSQN 10 posts
Member – MIFSQN 50 posts
Senior – SIFSQN 250 Posts
Principal - PIFSQN 500 posts
Fellow – FIFSQN 1000 posts

I will then find a way of running a script to move members to their correct grade as of now. Then in future members will be automatically pomoted as they reach the required number of posts.

Once I have set up the grades I will set up a new thread or perhaps better a specific forum that explains the grading system and allows for members to post new threads to ask for their CoC's. We can also congratulate on there also. That would be nice.

Thank you for all of your input on this and please bear with me whilst I gt this set up.

Regards,
Simon

Hi Simon,

I really like the idea. So please just go ahead.

You have my full support.


By the way, I just completed my T-shirt take away info. I am excited to wear that during one of our audits.

Thanks a lot!

God bless every one.

Great idea simon!!!

Appreciate your effort

:clap:


For a while we’ve been considering giving some sort of formal recognition to members for their time and valued contributions they make to the forum. There is an automatic promotion system in place on the forums that works like this.

New Member 1 post
Associate – AIFSQN 10 posts
Member – MIFSQN 50 posts
Senior – SIFSQN 500 posts
Fellow – FIFSQN 1000 posts

We thought when a member reaches a grade they could request to be reviewed formally by the forums panel to decide if they should be awarded the Certificate of Contribution for that grade. It is something to aim for and is a recognition of achievement, perhaps it could even add value to a resume or CV.

It's only a rough idea at the moment and the question first before discussing exactly how it could work is to determine the interest in such a system.

Please comment.

Regards,
Simon

This is an old topic that is sort of redundant now.
We set the new member grades up like this:

Inactive Member - Never made a post
Active Member - 1-9 posts

Associate – AIFSQN 10 posts
Member – MIFSQN 50 posts
Senior – SIFSQN 250 Posts
Principal - PIFSQN 500 posts
Fellow – FIFSQN 1000 posts

We give out a Certificate of Contribution to members who qualify and request one - you can read all about it here.

As this topic has served its purpose I'm going to close it off.
