I have noticed that under the name of the poster, it says whether they are a budding/full/respected member/travel guru/moderator.

How do I advance up the forum ladder? Is it based on number of posts? Because I have seen some people with 60 posts as full members, and then others with 100 as budding members.

Just curious on how things work.

It's based on all activity on the site. Posts, especially posts which are rated high by other people, weblog entries (especially those which are featured), featured photos you've uploaded, etc.

As for the ranks, you got them all, although Moderator isn't a regular rank, but rather a special designation for a few members who're made to do boring janitorial jobs like moving threads to the right forums and deleting spam.

There's also only a limited number of respected members / travel gurus, so getting above full member takes a lot of high quality contributions, and will get ever harder as more people join the site.

Janitor... that sounds cool.

Sander, can you rename the ranks from Moderator to Janitor in the source code?

Ooh, I'm sure I could slip that through without Peter notici... I mean. Of course I wouldn't do such a thing. What a silly question.

I suggest that I get my own rank of 'Canukistani'... or 'Thread Jacker'.

Here are my reasons:

  • 1) I am a snappy dresser.
  • 2) I have am a valuable member of the community.
  • 3) I know how to treat the ladies.
  • 4) I have connections in high places.
  • 5) I can say hello in 352 dialects of english.
  • 6) I am a regular practicionar of Sloth, the ancient art of sitting.
  • 7) I can rant about anything, anywhere, at anytime.
  • 8) QOTW.
  • 9) Purple monkey dishwasher.
  • 10) I have mastered the 'List' function.

Thank you Isadora for pointing me to this thread.

Hmmm...well, if Brendan gets his own rank, maybe there could be a new category especially for the lowlier budding Canajuns that live waay up in the frozen North. We're a hardy bloomin bunch, but if left in bud too long and the heavy frost sets in, we'll just wither away .
