What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

What is an "order"? I don't know what that means on this site but I am speculating it is something like a group (like the First Order from Star Wars Episode VII) so what are they exactly?

What is an "Order"?

Orders are groups.
There are 4 different orders on this site :)

And those are?

(How come I never heard of them before?)

What is an "Order"?

Warden, Architect, Marauders, and Sages.

These orders are supposed to promote better comments, and more feedback and contribution in threads. The top order each week gets a special effect in their names in forums.

Top earner each day but yes!

Sorry to necro an old post, but this only answers half of the question that led me to this post in the first place. The question I have is how are the orders assigned. What are the prerequisites of being promoted to the next order?

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

Random. You stay in the Order you are forever (as of now)

At everyone else: Do we have an article on this yet? Is anyone writing one?

What is an "Order"?

The only part of this reply that is in any way helpful is the question about the article. Please do not try to answer questions you have no knowledge of. I didn't necro this post to see post after post of useless information pop up. Sorry if this sounds rude but I have no patience for that crap.

What is an "Order"?

There have been literally, probably dozens of posts explaining what orders are.

There's no "promotion." You are randomly put in an order. Sages are the best.

Excuse me, but I find your rudeness both uncalled for and confusing. I've already answered your two questions: Orders are assigned at random when you join, you rolled Sage. Orders are permanent, there is no 'progression'. The only change is if you have highest commendations within an order you earn a special prefix, if you have a top 100 story you get the Exemplar Suffix, and if you earn the most commendations in a day you get the 'of Avon' suffix. 

I was reluctant to respond to your rude rejoinder, however I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here.

I'm just curious of how he doesn't understand yet. It's been like, two months and we've had at least ten threads explaining what they are.

to answer you're speculation, this is the first time since maybe last July that I've been on and I've only been on for 30 min. sorry that I'm not automatically up to date on everything that has happened since ive been gone. 

What is an "Order"?

If reading threads for 30 minutes gets you all enraged and passive aggressive, maybe another break from the forums is needed.

I mean, your questions were directly answered in here, bit if you're still not satisfied then the obvious way to get up to date is to read the update threads, or PM an admin.

What is an "Order"?

there's more to it than just reading the thread and normally i only get mild irritated from it. and even then with my original response i wasn't enraged, i just let my rudeness slip out. i was already in a sour mood but that's no reason to take it out on random people on the internet. that's why i apologized when strykerl called me on it. 

What is an "Order"?

I apologize for the snippy response but I just got done trying to comb through another thread on a different topic that was full to bursting with maybe 2 out of 10 being useful information that furthered the discussion and the rest either having been covered already or being useless. Shouldn't have assumed you were doing the same. This does answer my question. I would like to ask if you have a link to the article to make it easier to find.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

I noticed that you unfollowed the thread, so you didn't see my apology. I shouldn't of gotten snippy. I blame it on being half asleep and misreading your reply. Also I've been trying to comb through the useless responses cluttering the forums and I think its leaving a bad taste in my mouth. To answer the question you asked about the article, there isn't one. I just got done checking through them. I would like to ask you though do you have a link to a thread that can give me more information on the matter?

Hey, it's fine, do get some rest though. There's no article as of now to the best of my knowledge. If one is made, will let you know.

What is an "Order"?

Do you know if there is any meaning behind the orders? or are they just completely random? i appear to be a marauder by the way.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

Intentionally random. Sages happened to roll more active members, but that doesn't mean much if the other orders step up.

You can find an overview of the points in an Order from the hyperlinked Order name on a person's profile. Marauders here. Seems like I confused you with the OP in the thread, hence I accidentally mentioned you being a Sage in an earlier post.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

Marauders can't be too bad, I mean I see EndMaster, Madglee, and Alexp on that list.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

Sages - Best.

Wardens - Second. Not a close second, but.... eh.

Marauders - At least they aren't architechts.

Architechts - Shitlords

@MinnieKing don't be repetitive. You obviously saw the discussion on this further below, because you took part in it. We finished that discussion and this adds nothing new to it.

One does not simply end a discussion, especially when one is clearly losing.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

True but one can walk away. And is going back and forth about which order is better really a discussion? Can there be a winner when the only things stated thus far have been purely oppinions and not facts?

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago
Yes, there can be. Whoever can argue the longest before the other one gets tired and can no longer argue is the winner.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

You seem to be confused. My opinions are facts.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

You seem to be confused on the definition of the word fact. A statement without supporting evidence is just a statement. It has not been proven or disproved. Here is an example of a fact. The Sages have a total of 285 commendations, whereas the Wardens have 93,  the Architects have 83, and the Marauders have 38. In this way Sages are the best, then Wardens, then Architects, then Marauders. That is a statement supported by hard evidence, and is therefore fact. The fact that you stated that architects are the worst of the orders just proves that you're statements are based in opinion and not fact.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

No, no, you don't understand.

Fact: My opinion.

Evidence needed: It is an opinion that I hold, and therefore true.

What is an "Order"?

Fact: That's not a fact.

Evidence needed: That evidence isn't evidence either.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

Fact: That's not a fact, nothing you said has been a fact.

Evidence needed: "You're full of shit" isn't evidence either, therefore you too were claiming to have a factual opinion, but you were utterly wrong, because you're not as awesome as I am. This is clearly evidenced by the fact that you're in the shittiest order.

What is an "Order"?

10 months ago

Fact: You both are acting like fools.

Evidence needed: A list of your *awesomeness*. And it doesn't matter if you are more awesome than the other, because you are BOTH full of shit for acting like this. BOOM.

That totally had a point. It was funny.

Oh boy, do you not know what spammy is. I know, because I am trying to keep people from doing it in the comments on roblox. But I am not a spammer, and therefore will not demonstrate that.

What is an "Order"?

'Strange', in this sense, is a word for idiot children who think they know what 'Interesting' is in a human personality.

To you, maybe. I'm sure you'd be an excellent entertainer of 2 year olds who've never used the internet before.

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but we have much, MUCH higher standards of postwriting here than the Roblox comments section. This is our Ool, and just because you've been swimming in a toilet your whole life doesn't mean it's not as bad if you piss in it.

Orders are automatically assigned based on true facts and visible on one's About Page.

Sages are the smartest and wisest, giving them +5 superiority measures on account of being superior to the three other orders, with another point for being the most superior, and another in addition for not being an architect.

Wardens are made to protect and enforce, thus giving them legal authority and technical superiority to the lesser orders, allowing them +3 superiority measures. 2 for the other two factions they are superior to, and another for not being an architect.

Marauders are a disorganised band of misfits and barbarians, but at least they aren't Architects. +2. Sheerly not being an architect gives them one superiority measure. They also are superior to architects, giving them another point.

Architects suck, and therefore have no superiority measures.

Having a red username in the forums doubles your superiority measures. Having a bold red username quadruples your superiority. Having the biggest penis/vagina out of all the users quintuples it by the amount of trophies you have, therefore making me the most superior person on the website

What is an "Order"?

You can't quintuple x by y. You can quintuple x or quintuple y, but quintupling x by y doesn't mean anything.

What is an "Order"?

I mean, it's supposed to mean it's x5 for every trophy you have. Should have reworked the wording, but it makes sense, since it's mostly bulsch anyway.

for some reason i sense some bias here. by the way the fact that endmaster is a marauder definately gives us +4 superiority. therefore making us better than sages. :p

No, that's only Endmaster. He's superior despite the fact that he's a marauder, not because of it.

i never said he was superior because he was a marauder. i said the marauders are superior because of him.

What is an "Order"?

I know. I said he doesn't elevate marauders, he's just above the rest of them. He's just proof that the order technically could be better than it is, not proof that it is better than the other orders.

LOGIC. It is what makes the best sentences with terminology.

 

P.S: Terminology, if you didn't know, is what a sentence is if it has one/more than one word(s) that are repeated over and over again. Example: "Time times time times time squared equals time times time times time times time"
