I think "Hates Pat Robertson" deserves more than a 15 post range.

Fixed Padawan Learner to coincide with graduation to full board at 50 posts.

Everyone, feel free to think of new ranks for past the 1500 range.

How about a personal rank over 2000?

I'd like 'Guardian of Reason' pretty please  :D

Apologies if this has been suggested before.  At Venganza, when a poster reaches an extremely high number of posts (in that case, the goal is 5,000), they are voted their own custom Prophet title.  Nominations are taken from the membership and then voted on.   The [strike:r3auc6w7]victim's[/strike:r3auc6w7] recipient's opinions are welcomed, and occasionally even given a measure of consideration.  This has produced some rather interesting and usually hilarious results.

Ok time for a bit of fun

This is the current user rank set up.



At the moment we can't do custom ranks so don't ask please.  :D

However I'd like to add some more differentiation for post counts less than 100 and particularly the 1 to 9 ranks.

Suggestion welcome.

EDITs Below.


Suggestions so far

Touched by His Noodly Appendage!
Not Sure About That Kool-Aid
Has Given Up Counting Angels On Pinheads
If I Have A Soul, So Does My Dog
Yields Not To Kalamity
Made of star stuff
Uses Xmas
Reptilian Overlord
Has a hammer and nails
I'd like to be "a frood who really knows where his towel is."
Knows what six times seven equals.
Knows what the question is.
Rides the Sonic rain boom
Not firing on all cylinders
Two eggs short of a dozen

Touched by his noodly appendage!
"We’ve thought of life by analogy with a journey, with pilgrimage which had a serious purpose at the end, and the THING was to get to that end; success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead. But, we missed the point the whole way along; It was a musical thing and you were supposed to sing, or dance, while the music was being played.
