    I think the names of the tiers should break out of the standard silver/gold/platinum mold. Also, as time goes on, these tiers will need to expand- if it went to Diamond, it would be a direct copy of Delta, not something unique to MiPo.

    Something flying/travel related, but with a unique twist. I'd like to see some suggestions here. In a chat LFCorsten suggested "Luke Skywalker". Something with humor would be good, like:

    Wingwalker
    Skywalker
    Starwalker

    or

    CRJ
    727
    A320
    777
    A380
    Concorde

    or

    Boarding
    Taxiing
    Liftoff
    Seatbelts off
    Cruising Level

    Come on, you guys can come up with some really good ideas!

    Of course, with this system, with each tier advancement you have less contact with others and less need or ability to talk to them. Hit Private Jet, and the Kettles can't even see that you exist. [​IMG]

    I think we need a top level as well, on your last suggestion :
    Boarding
    Taxiing
    Liftoff ( can be replaced with eg. Rotate )
    Seatbelts off
    Cruising Level
    and last, but not least......( drum roll please...)

    Because of reading this thread, I have been reduced to tiers.

    However, please do not assume that I am crying “crocodile tiers”...

    So moving from one to two, you get rid of the business travelers but keep the children. Then when you go from two to three, you de-board the children and let the business travelers back on?

    I think i had posted in another thread that the current threads weren't necessarily my fave but they are placeholders for now so that members know where we are headed thought not the name of the place we are headed!

    Appreciate the feedback and i'd be very surprised if Silver/Gold/Platinum are there on our launch day. But you do understand, they certainly are great names for the concept as many of you can relate to the idea.

    We could leverage the SMD II class structure and go with:

    Party Crashers
    Riff-Raff Class
    Tommy Class
    Baglady Class (aka First Class)
    and, of course, the top tier would be Randy Class

    I'm sure this thread is generating lots of thought-provoking options for your team to consider.

    I am enjoying seeing the strange titles. [​IMG]

    It reminds me of the days when some people with their business cards, and having strange title for their position at a company. Then again there are some companies still do that. [​IMG]

    "What is your title?", "Gate Lice Boss."

    I actually had that.. sort of.. on my signature file at work. It was actually "Official Herder of Jell-O Cats with Spatula." Then the CEO saw it. [​IMG]

    No. He is a humourless egoist with a dictatorial streak. In other words, classic CEO material.

    The problem with creative names is that no one knows what they mean. At least silver/gold/platinum are well-understood tiers and everyone knows what order they come in.

    Besides, the wing/sky/star walker set will get MP a cease and desist letter from Lucas Arts. :)
