I feel that I should get an "Insider" title for living in Vancouver, even though I haven't contributed anything yet. It should also be 36pt Impact font and it should steadily shift back and forth between black and red.

So are there title ranks for posting and posting well? I've always liked that kind of thing. Especially titles based on user feedback. (An anonymous rating system where users can boost the "rep" of people whose posts they find helpful or interesting.)

As of right now, I put in ranks to reflect the volume of posts people have, not based on feedback. I'm not sure how to do that... I'll look into it.

Any news on that, Dooms?

I'm fine with volume, I'm just curious.

Like a cat.

I think we're going to stick with ranks based on how may posts you've made. In case you're curious, these are the current rank names with the post level needed to attain them:

Newbie: 0
Minuteman: 10
Crimebuster: 25
Vigilante: 50
Alien Squid Monster: 100
Thermodynamic Miracle: 200

So far we have 3 "Alien Squid Monster" with Vynson, Soupdragon and CLINT FLICKER and one "Thermodynamic Miracle" with Curiosity Inc. (golf clap)

Although it will be a while until someone has 300 posts, we will need more ranks. The best bet is adding ranks at the 100's up (300, 400, 500, etc.) Trouble is, what is higher than "Thermodynamic Miracle" in the Watchmen world? I was thinking "Intrinsic Field Manipulator" for 300? Plus, I just have "Newbie" for 0-9 so we can distinguish those folks who signed up and never posted, or signed up and trolled once or twice. That's why there's no Watchmen-esque rank there.

Any ideas for new rank titles? Any comments on existing rank names and how many posts are needed to attain them? Let me know.

Well, DD, you've got your work cut out for you. Over at the Vivarium, I created rankings for every ten posts, just to keep things interesting... but I ran a bit dry and have a couple of high post count regulars who are stranded in the Casablanca of post changes with no letters of transit in sight.

I also slid in a few one time rankings that only last for a post or two... and some that continue over the course of several posts.

Most are Watchmen oriented in an obvious way... some not so obvious... some related to V4V... some to Alan Moore himself... and some can only be chalked up to my special brand of delirium. At any rate...

- Strangeness and Charm
- The Light of 2 Hours Past

Jesus. H. Christ.

That is one hell of a run down. I'm not going to compete with that or even try to emulate it. In fact, being a member of your board, I specifically do not want to replicate your formula.

Your board was around much longer than mine. I respect that, and the caliber of your members. I wish more of them were here, but the few we have, I'm gald we do.

All I can say is, Vynson: thanks for being here, and as I've said before "keep stiring the shit."

I have changed the board rank of 0-10 posts from "Newbie" to "So impotent." :)

I've also added ranks for 300, 400 and 500 posts. But I don't want to say what they are... ;)

RANK UPDATE: 11.07.07

As you see we have a new rank. Our keyboard happy friend Curiosity Inc. has 300 posts and the honored rank of "New Frontiersman."

I'd like to also welcome Broken Finger and Rorsach to the "Squid" club. They join Vynson, Soupdragon and CLINT FLICKER.

Give yourselves a big hand.

Judging from my current rate of posting, I won't hit 400 for another month.
