Oh, you decided to lower the threshold for Veteran Members?

Yes. 2500 is a lot, not many newer members will get there. 1500 is probably a bit high as well, but I see it as a sort of halfway point.

I noticed that as well. Perhaps they need to post again before they will receive the promotion, but I think most of them haven't really been around lately and are unlikely to do so.

If it really matters, we can assign the group manually.

Yeah I stand corrected. On closer inspection some are not displaying correctly. But viewing their profile page shows they are in the Veteran group. Its a minor thing, not a forum breaking bug.

I think there may be a rank 30, don't you think Sonic? What about special rankings for those who reach 3000, 4000, 5000, 7500 or even 10000 posts?

You don't wanna do that really. You'll massage Luk3us' ego for being the forum's leading spammer. It's a title he's held long before my hiatus :P

There are 30 ranks, they just start at 0 instead of 1.

What about no? Did you not notice that he already reduced the Veteran requirement by 1000 posts because it was reached by so few?

30 ranks is plenty. We worked on this rank system for a few weeks (on and off). @Nmenth finalised the rank titles and counts, @Plokite_Wolf supplied all the images (They are from Tiberium Wars/Kane's Wrath). My part was to remove the old ranks and set up the new ones.

I am considering an option for users to earn extra little awards or moved to a special group when the reach a certain positive reputation level. Just an idea.
