Okay, so Aerton doesn't like my ranking system :-D. Well, I put it under your discussion -- here it is:

1-20 - Former Human
20-50 - Former Sergeant
50-100 - Imp
100-200 - Demon
200-400 - Cacodemon
400-1000 - Hell Knight
1000+ - Hell Baron

Any suggestions or comments are welcome :-)

I never liked such ranking, because you can just go and spam useless post everywhere and you end up with the highest rank. Sure there isn't realy a way to make a realy good ranking system for a forum, but I still think this one is bad.

I hope, you will end up swiftly and mercilessly banned in such case.

But spamming won't (hopefuly) be tollerated. I like the system; beats the ol' Junior member, member, etc., ranks. I think there should be 1 more rank, in between hell knight and baron of hell. Possibly:

200-400 Cacodemon
400-700 Hell knight
700-1000 Baron of hell
1000+ Cyberdemon

Don't worry, I just used it as a excuse to post the official ranks :-D

So you propose to remove it altogether? I think it's fun, as long as people don't take it too seriously ;-).

Yup. And I prupose that people post only when they got something too add to the discussion. Let me make myself clear -- off-topic posts are cool and I like them, but there is a difference between spamming and posting off topic (In other words -- no Igor, it was not aimed at you, it was aimed at some other guy, you probably know who ^_^)

Yup, valid point. I'll take a look at it :-).

Also I think about adding images that reflect rank -- there is almost always enough place below the post to add a 80x80 image -- you like this idea, guys?

So we'll have a picture/ASCII art under our name reflecting our rank? Good idea.

Awesome

P.S. How about having a lot of ranks so all doom monsters get in on the fun
(IE.Invisi pinkie, mancubus, chaingunner person, etc)

IMO that'd be too many ranks, most forums only have 5-7. Also we already have ASCII art for the Doom I monsters.

He can be glad I don't have my chaingun. Now where'd that red { get to...

How would we fit them all in?

0-5
6-20
21-50
51-100
101-200
200-300
301-500
501-750
751-1000
1001-1501
And so on... I don't wanna get 4000+ posts to be top rank, and I think the system's fine.

Why would you care about rank that much?

Dunno, I guess its when your top rank, you look down on low ranks and say to yourself: "I'm a better rank than them :) They don't have a good rank :) only me :)"

So basicly, it's a moral booster to the men/women/whatever who have high ranks.
