So I noticed that with the new forum came new ranking names, and I was wondering what all of them were, and what it takes to achieve them.

Thanks!

How to achieve certain ranks has been a long time secret. Sorry. :]

As to what they are, that's just part of the fun of finding out ;]

Maybe some experimentation is in order. Perhaps our posting habits delegate our ranks and titles. Get to work yous guys!

Ohhh, so we're not supposed to know? It's like an easter egg, then!

Personally, I like the sound of 'Ace'. It's just kind of Classy.

Correct me if I am wrong, but shouldn't Bigfoot mean rare sightings, king of like supposedly in real life? I mean I am on at least once a day & always post in game threads, so I have no idea how I got that? :unsure:

I'm curious as to how I am only a member as opposed to a veteran.

I know you're not going to reveal the qualifications of each, but people who have fewer posts and haven't been around as long hold veteran status over my member.

I believe the name, unless previously changed by a mod, is post count based.

Idk about grouping.

Okay, so, here's some clarifications:

  • Posts in Chit-Chat and Insanity don't increase your post count. (Too many games where you just post a number or +1 posts or whatever. It's actually been this way for a while.)
  • When your post count increases, the software checks to see if you should be promoted because of post count.
  • Unfortunately, the software does not check to see if you should be promoted more than once, so you only go up one rank per post. (Sloppy programming!)
  • Your title (which is under your avatar, not your group name) on the other hand is calculated on the fly. So, unless you have a custom title or are staff, that is the group you'll eventually get to.
Make more sense now?

Oh, and also:
  • The post count on your posts is the post count used for titles/groups. The post count on your profile is your true post count, including Insanity and Chit-Chat. We think.

Why must people complain. Just enjoy the ride. Everything got reset at the upgrade so you have to go through all the movements until you get to your actual title/group :/

It's a biiig change. It's like when Facebook changes their look and style. Their changes are usually very mild and look at how many people complain! Compared to a Facebook update, our update was extreme. Some complaining was to be expected. Some of the reasons for the complaints are understandable. There are a few things I miss about the old board myself. I liked how stickies were handled better on the old boards. Oh well though. I'll just learn to adjust to it now ^^

Complaints are positive reenforcement that we're going a good job. The forum IT staff are being very proactive of making sure everything is working correctly. Complaints are how they know what's wrong and what needs to be improved!

Yep, couldn't sum it up any better. As long as your aren't running at us with pitchforks or acting like a child rolling around the cereal aisle to get their favorite cereal we have no problem taking the complaints or what could be tweaked. We definitely look into everything as long at it within reason. Even though I don't respond to every single post [which would take me forever] I lurk a lot and take notes on what is going well and what could use improvement. :)
