I think we should use "Donor" or "Donated" as "Donator" doesn't seem right.

Searched and found numerous threads about the usage: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ask-t ... nator.html

Doesn't it? Donor doesn't fit i don't think (reminds me of giving blood...*shudders*)
Shall we go with "Donated"?

We already have that as a 'rank'.

Yeah, I agree with the "blood giving" imagery associated with "Donor".

I've changed "Contributor" to "Content Contributor" and "Top Content Contributor" under the new ranking system.

I should probably start thinking about how I'm going to integrate this on the back end so we can easily add people to the "donors" group. Changing the color of someone's name (and putting that in the legend on the front page) would be a good start.

Edit: Here's the group of users I could identify (by email address.) If I missed you, please let me know.

memberlist.php?mode=group&g=8

Edit: Without making edits to the core phpBB code, I can't easily add a custom image or allow people who already have special ranks i.e. Admins, Moderators to show they are a "Contributor" (naming subject to change.)

What do you think of the implementation thus far?

Here's a post with a good collection of ranks on show: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=6335
