    I realize that bgizzle turned off post count because people were only focusing on posting to raise their post-count. Well, I am a member at a few vBulletin forums and one popular one has a good idea.

    I thought this would be a good idea to go along with the ranks (i.e. Zealot, Maniac, Fan, ect.) since not many people know which order it comes in. It doesn't have to be a coffee theme like in the pictures above, it could be iPod touches. Like, every time you increase in a rank, you get another iPod touch under your name, then after you get 5, the next time you increase a rank, one turns on. And the Admins and Mods will have a mix between iPhones and iPod touches.

    I personally would just like to stick to the names. It looks a lot better than little symbols. Also, Wouldn't it just drive other user's to post more to increase the count of iPod Touch's under their names?

    In my opinion, I think BGizzle should keep the ranking system how it is. However I also think that the "Off-Topic Forums" should not count against your post count. It has caused the people to increase in Spam posting and decrease the amount of people actually posting in the other sections. If people want to post more often to increase their rank then by god let them... Just make sure it is also helping others while they're doing it.

    BUT that is just my opinion

    yeah, people who post a lot in the Off Topic section aren't really 'iPod touch Maniacs' or 'Mavens' are they?

    I've always found the ubuntu forums ranks to be overly confusing since there is too many of them.

    I post in the OT and I am a Maniac. So are you ;]
    I agree, but the way I am trying to get across would make it easier.
