    I think offering MVP status to the builders who've shown to be building as a business and not as a hobby is a good idea. We already have MVPs who will be I guess given MVP level 1, and then the builders MVP level 2? I dont even know if we can do that.

    EDIT: We actually have a vendor title available. That might be better suited.

    EDIT2: Tried giving the vendor title to some but it didn't work :(

    This would be awesome, that way we would know who's opinion has more weight to it.

    :agreed: Where do you draw the line? Is a guy who built one so-so yet playable custom in his garage a "builder?" What about the same guy, except he now wants to take orders? And, if someone buys one of his guitars, and the thing's damned near unplayable, is that grounds to revoke the "builder" status? It's a slippery slope.

    I mean, technically, that Deveres or whateverthefuckhespellsit dude is a "builder," but should he be accoreded any additional respect for that, when he's telling someone to sell their amps for a $200 Randall, and that his guitars are built to be played in a specific tuning through a specific (shitty) amp at maximum volume, and of course they sound bad if you're doing anything else?

    Well, the idea is that they wouldn't get builder status until they've established a positive reputation. It's not like we'd be taking applications or whatever, we'd just update the status of members every so often that deserve recognition.

    As it stands, I'm starting to wonder whether adding a status for builders/vendors/whatever would actually do any good. I don't want people dismissing the opinions of everyone who doesn't have a different-coloured username - I mean, look at how pissy people get over simple things like rep, it's not like we need any more reasons to bitch:lol:

    One thing's for certain: If Devries ever gets an account here, he is getting instant uber-luthier status for ultimate irony's sake. :lol:

    The vendor title/group is something that I half-finished, meant to get around to, and never did. It's just a simple markup addition if you guys want to make it happen, just keep in mind that once you add a new usergroup, you need to set permissions for every one of the bajillion mods that I installed on here as well that don't auto-inherit them.
