    Default New User Ranks

    All,

    While I agree, your opinion does not get more credibility with your post count, I have reinstated the post count display.

    First of all, it is standard functionality so I am keeping this board vanilla until I can get the 5.x upgrade to work.

    Secondly, people keep asking for it.

    Thirdly, it allows me to create some new user "ranks". I drafted some. Thoughts?

    I am only half the poster compared to Medwards.

    I promise to catch up and overtake him by the end of the month.

    you need to add "the lion heart" to your rankings on the provision that you are the only one ever entitled to it.

    you can capitalize it if you choose...

    Here's an idea to help with future costs, how about a one time charge of $10.00 or $20.00 (or whatever seems fair) for a custom title?

    Adding the number of posts makes the user "ranks" unnecessary in my opinion. I can see having a 'First One is Always Free' rank to alert us to a newbie on the board, and maybe after that a 'Regular C2E Contributor' rank but that's about it.

    2,000 posts over 8 years doesn't make me hard core, and I am uncomfortable with a number of the ranks which reference addiction in various ways. I know the intention is not to offend or be insensitive, but the words we use to describe something do matter.

    ^i agree. No need for them more than indicating a new user or regular poster.
