    The images you see on the left underneath registered usernames are called 'rankings'. They give an indication of the number of posts that user has entered on Forums. The more posts and threads you contribute to or answer, the higher your ranking.

    Here's the guide to how many posts you need to earn Rankings..

    • [​IMG] = 1 post, theMouthPiece Newbie
      [​IMG] = 10 posts, theMouthPiece Friend in Training
      [​IMG] = 100 posts, theMouthPiece Friend
      [​IMG] = 200 posts, theMouthPiece Senior Friend
      [​IMG] = 500 posts, theMouthPiece Master Friend
      [​IMG] = 1000 posts, theMouthPiece Prime Friend
      [​IMG] = 2000 posts, theMouthPiece Friend for Life

    So, get posting and earn your rankings...

    In the Rankings description I'm not sure that the word "groupie" is appropriate. The word does have different meanings - do a google search for "what is a groupie". You might want to consider amending the description as people may see the forum as not being quite for them.

    Hi Al

    Always willing to hear comments/suggestions and I have no objection changing the rank names if you feel some people might think them inappropriate. :D

    These new ones OK... :?:

    I think "rookie" may have been a good substitute for "groupie" or "newbie", but I don't know if that is used much in the UK

    If you put any word into a search engine these days you get funny results

    well I'm successfully managing not to write a lab report! Or revise for exams, or tidy room, or get ready for work.

    I'm not lazy though, I'm energy efficient!

    Can you update the rankings list?

    Is "tMP posting freak!!!" an actual ranking, or just something some people made up?

    I think "Posting Freak" is the titel for members with over 5000 posts...

    It also seems that recently the number of posts necessary for becoming a "friend for life" has been changed from 2000 to 3000 posts
    Now that I was nearly there... :( :(

    Some of the other categories changed as well it seems:
    1-9 = newbie
    10-99 = friend in training
    100-199 = friend
    200-499 = senior friend
    500-999 = master friend
    1000-2999 = prime friend
    3000-4999 = friend for life
    5000-... = posting freak

    people who support tMP financially, can choose their own title

    people who won an award in the 24 months live awards also have a special title

    Of course i'm not a mod or administrator, so I'm only guessing here...

    I think we should ask the acknowledged posting freaks if that is their title of choice.

    It doesn't sound terribly complimentary, but you never know;)
