Priority Levels (not technical)

Greetings,
I currently have 4 priority levels that i'm using for my side (sorting things),
but i need to make 4 more priority levels along the same lines, however these priority levels will mean to me absolutely nothing.
but to the user, will let them put the item with their *perceived* urgency.

below are my levels:

Critical
High
Medium
Low

what priority levels could u come up with? :-)

I think you would get a more honest set of comments if you move this question to the Lounge.  :)

At the moment, I can't think of any other that would not violate the MA.

lol, well this is more for my access database i'm building, and i don't go in the lounge anymore.

Right now i've written down:
1 Urgent
2
3
4 Annoyance

but need something in between.
these will honestly have no value to me, but it makes the user feel happy when they can select how important they think it is.
of course, most of them will probably be urgent.

Severe
High
Elevated
Guarded
Low

oops, that's five. Oh well, they're made up anyway; remove Low, it's never Low, it's always at least SOMETHING, otherwise it wouldn't have a level :)

I always liked priorities that were a bit more concrete than Urgent, high, low, such as

instead of Critical, use  "Stop all other work you are doing.  Do not go home.  Do not go to the bathroom.  Hire additional people TODAY to solve this problem."
High = "My needs are more important than anyone elses, so do my task first"
Med = "I will wait 3 or 4 seconds before I'll start calling you to see if it is done"
Low = "I don't really need this but my time is more important than yours so you should do it for me"

Meanless priority levels?

hmmmm.....

I can think of four that are particularly meaningless:

Green
Yellow
Orange
Red

The DHS has declared them meaningless and I'll be they wouldn't mind you using them.
They paid good tax payer money for them...someone might as well get some use out 'em.

thanks for the ideas, keep em coming.
remember, that the 4 priority levels are USER PERCEIVED levels.  They will have no bearing on the IT priority Level, just something to make them feel better. :-)

>> When does Kyle get to come play in the Lounge again, anyway?
>> I believe his sentence is now self-imposed.

That is correct. I Choose to avoid the lounge.  Although the little fight with the the n00bs and baldrick was quite entertaining, at the same time it's just a reminded of what's really there.
on a side note, since i left the lounge, i became a youth leader at my church, I bought a new Line 6 amplifier and have been putting serious practice time into my electric guitar skills (acoustic for 9 years now).
Oh, and I met an amazing woman.
pictures will be up on my website soon enough. :-)

my contact thread is here, although it's currently hijacked... :-)

I think you need a "Yesterday" priority, as in it was due yesterday!

You might consider using Chakra levels...

NEEDS 1st chakra: (root chakra, located at the base of the spine) Physical survival -- concerned with finding food, shelter, safety, etc. This is the level of bodily consciousness. When this chakra is in the process of awakening, there may be strange sensations at the base of the spine. Itching, tinging, or much stronger vibrations, including thumping and cracking, may be felt in the tailbone. When the 1st chakra opens, shakti may shoot up the spine in a spectacular fashion. This may cause convulsions and a great deal of pain in the spine. Intense heat may be felt in any of the chakra sites when they are beginning to be pierced.

DESIRES 2nd chakra: (located in the lower abdomen) Seeking pleasure and avoidance of pain (Sexuality in its instinctual sense is located at this level.) This is the level of emotions. The 2nd chakra awakening may produce powerful sexual feelings. Great surges of negative emotion, such as jealousy or hatred, may be triggered at this level. Sudden, bizarre identification with various animals, such as wolves, bears or feral cats, may occur. When my 2nd chakra was pierced, I had spontaneous orgasms, which was a pleasant surprise. I also had a brief episode in which I felt that I was taking on the instincts and physical bearing of a huge tiger. This was an overwhelming and frightening experience.

POWER 3rd chakra: (located at the solar plexus) Personal power -- morality, judgment, self vs. other. This is the level of the will. When the 3rd chakra opens, there can be tremendous emotional upheaval. Lots of painful unconscious material can erupt. Vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea and other digestive troubles can accompany this opening. Telepathy, clairvoyance, clairsentience and awareness of astral entities may emerge with an awakened 3rd chakra. The newly unfolding 3rd chakra can make one emotionally and psychically hypersensitive.
