I'm considering a change in rankings. Some members have already reached the top....in just 6 weeks. This "default" ranking that we are currently using is designed for low volume boards:
Junior member 0 posts
Member 30 posts
Senior member 100 posts
Here's my proposed hierarchy:
New member 0 posts
Junior member 10 posts
Full member 50 posts
Senior member 250 posts
Master member 500 posts
This adds a couple of ranks and raises the bars.
Another idea on rank names is to use Alaska terms. I like the idea, but it may be difficult for everyone to understand them. My inclination is to add the ranks, make the rank names generic, and continue thinking about alternate names. It's pretty easy to change them later.
Please use the poll to vote your preference on this. If you have comments, you are welcome to add them.
