Out of the Blue

Frans was poking around in some of the scripts on the server and was inspired to play with some of the code for the forums. As a result, some of the rankings for number of posts have been adjusted. Forum regulars will probably find amusement in the new designation for the lowest tier of post count, formerly "bearcub," which is now "suspect," which will occasionally properly identify posts from PR flaks.

Another thing is they should gi

ve you extra rank points based


on your durational spread of posting ...like each week with one post you get ten points, 15 points every month with one post, 35 points with every six months with a post, 246 points every year with one post, 1256 points every 5 years, and 56k every ten years.

It's too bad I need to post before checking my new rank because then I would need to make another post in order to gripe about overly generic ranks and instead of relying on the lowest common world english to reach readers from all over the world ant didn't script a multilingual ranking system so that the ranks utlize the nuances of each reader's toungue.

There was one point in the last couple of weeks where nin had to create a new login due to some password glitch, jokingly attributed at the time to his high postcount...

I still say if you are going to change things, you should make everything as a ratio of nin's posts!
He should at least have his own unique rank for all his years of service.

Stupidity is more like it. Don't get me wrong, it was awesome to watch, but I think that guy ranks up there with the people who stand out back with camcorders as the tornado heads straight towards them.
