Showing User Authority
I could use everyone’s opinion on this. I’m developing a informational site, and I want users to easily distinguish high-authority (expert) users. Ideally, I want these users’ replies to look slightly different than others within groups and forums, and I want something to display on their profile to show that they are “certified” in some way.
My original thought was accomplishing this through the Achievements plugin. I would simply award high authority users, or let users reach high authority through activity and unlocking awards. I would then place the badges right alongside their names when they reply or comment within the site. However, this has proved to be a huge headache, and every time I solve one issue with Achievements, another one pops up.
Does anyone have any other ideas on how to differentiate certain users from others? Or, if anyone knows how to accomplish what I’ve described above (placing the Achievement badges alongside user’s names), I can continue down that path.
