      Description

      Stanford University is moving from phpBB to the native Sakai Forums tool. One functional gap in making the move is support for the ability to give special designation/rank to site member(s), for instance rank based on role in course or to identify site members by the number of posts they've made.

      Stanford has developed this "Ranks" feature and would be happy to contribute it back to the community. Specs attached.

      Use Cases: The teaching staff might want to know who the regular posters are or encourage greater class participation by giving recognition to those who have made a certain number of posts . For instance, an instructor might want to give the title of "Wizard" (and optionally a corresponding graphic) to any member posting more than 50 posts. The teaching staff might also want to give certain site members a special title independent of post count. For instance, students in a large class with active Forums participation might appreciate the ability to differentiate which posts came from the teaching staff versus from other classmates.
