A silver border means you are in the top 100 posters. There are others in the same rankings range. If they post more than you, or get a "hit" and amass a large number of flags and stars, they can overtake you and move you down from, say, #99 to #101 and the border goes away.



I don't want to argue with a mod... They would probably know better then I... But i don't think thats right... There is way more then 100 silver boarder members...

I think anyone over a certian watts number gets a boarder...

The mark was 74 at one point... Now im pretty sure its 80 or 81

The last I checked, the top 50 are gold, the next 50 get silver. I suppose that SO could have opened that up and extended it to the top 150 or even 200 - but, if so, nothing was posted about it ( or nothing I saw at least ).

But I am fairly certain that the premise is sound, even if I am not up to date on the number of inclusions.

Well if that is the case i am honoured to even make the top 100 or 150.... Whatever the case may be...

Even if i don't manage to keep it...

Unfortunately.... Now i have to hunt down and kill whoever unseated me.

Starred you can reclaim your border.


(Time to dig through source code for the answer, of course!)

Since we have you here heff... what exactly is the deciding factor?

Stars... Flags... Post count?

Perhaps a combination of all of them?

I've been trying ro figure it out for a while now... There are members with a boarder and less stars then myself... Others have less flags... Some just have a really high post count...

And whats up with the two wats numbers?!?

It's a mathematical formula. WATS is more dependant upon flags, karma is more dependant upon stars. Since I am terrible at math, I've never paid attention to the formula though and don't even have a link to it handy.


As for posting more or less, it's a double edged sword. Some folks keep their numbers high by posting very infrequently and being careful to post things that will likely get a very positive reaction. Others, like me, post way too much and, while getting bumps to their ratings more often, receiving much smaller bumps overall.

Yeah, I've noticed it. One in the members line, and one on our avatars. They're disparate.

I don't wanna lose my silver border!!

I was as excited as smylee when I first saw it!

We have borders?
I've seen so many different reward systems over the years, that I really have no idea what's current, without checking...

So if you don't use it you do indeed lose it? Interesting, thanks for the insider info. I always assumed once you hit a certain WATS number you obtain silver/gold boarder but always kept it.

So much for assumptions.

If you have that silver boarder for too long, your skin may start to turn blueish. Oh, I see it is too late for you, I see a tinge of blue in your avatar.
I always seem to be too late with my information

Hey, I just noticed, my watts and my age are the same

Heff. I demand ATS come up with a new border above gold. I'm losing my motivation here Dude.

A nice emerald green. It's earth friendly...pretty to look at. And, would go a long way in the, oooooooh something new to achieve that means nothing at all, department.

Ask SO for us...K?

You need to keep posting good content... Or it will eventually disapear...


I don't think that it cares if the content is good or not; unless they have found some way to work their NLP sloth in to the mix, and even so, I think the critter's capacity to handle that kind of discernment is over-hyped anyway.

Bring back the applause bar. Way cooler than borders.

C'mon, everybody knows the best way to keep your WATS score up is to post lots of funny pics in Signal's thread.
