Re: Community Ranks

just keep being active and you'll get there eventually. one of the things believed to be taken into account is logins. so when you're done for a while, logout rather than just logging in in the morning and staying logged in all day long. og back in periodically as you return throughout the day.

Re: Community Ranks

I'm definitely glad this thread was a sticky. I was looking for this info as I try to increase my rank so I can put pics in my signature. As it stands currently a mod helped me out.

Re: Community Ranks

I don't think kudos received has much to do with it as some of the super contributors have under 1500 received and a low percentage of posts to kudos. To me anything over 20% is good because that means much of what you say is of some value.

Best I can telll the rankings are almost exclusively based on # posts and minutes on-line. You need a certain minimum posts and minutes on-line to get to the next level. Kodos don't appear to be a factor..[system glitch on 7/22/2016 clearly showed ranking are system automated]

 

A likely breakdown of minimum posts category for each rank is shown below. [note: visitor rankings would follow the same QTY for posts as member rankings].

 

Added column with some potential minimum on-line minutes based on glitch data. "Tested" thresholds for Established Member, Valued Member, New Contributor, Contributor, Regular Contributor and Frequent Contributor. [On-line minutes threshold over 3600 for Established Contributor per my data and feedback from SJ. On-line minutes threshold for Valued Contributor is around 8000 per Elim feedback]

Best I can tell is the change in rank is done manually but is likely triggered by an automatic notification. If the notification is not acted upon and forgotten, the user may not receive a higher ranking. A likely breakdown of minimum posts for each rank is shown below.

It is actually not just by post count.  I was very curious myself when I joined because I have no experience with a lithium forum.  The formula can be tweaked be the admin/sysop, but here is an example of what it could be for a specific rank.   If you really are trying to rank up, then I suggest you make sure you do more than just post...lol.  When I was trying to rank up for image upload privileges, I was trying to have 2 logins per 1 post.  Give 2 kudos per every 1 kudos received, etc.  Basically, if you really contribute all around to the community, you will rank up Smiley Happy

The posts listed are minimum thresholds. Take a look at users for each ranking category and let me know if you see any posters that achieve the designated ranking with fewer than the listed posts.

 

Certainly you can be "passed over" and not receive a higher ranking. That's not unlikely if some other criteria was not satisfied.

 

Of course some of this is conjucture - but the rankings are very highly correlated with # posts.  Ratio of posts to kudos whether 3:1  or 10:1 seems to have little impact in moving up the ranks. Also, posters who give very few kudos .don't appear to be held back in rankings. Lack of initiating new threads also appears to have little impact on ability to move up. On the other hand, minutes on-line is important - but that typically correlates with having more posts.

I have never heard of someone setting up a forum which required the Admin/moderator to approve ranks.  I highly doubt that is happening here.  Post count most likely plays a large role in the ranking system, but I wouldn't discount the other factors.  As you can see in the example code I posted, if you don't meet the differenct sets of criteria, you will not rank up.  

 

 

Example:  

You have 200,000 posts, but you have only 100 logins.  In this forum, you will most likely still be stuck at a low rank, until you meet the minimum threshold for the logins category in the ranking formula.   Many different variables could be holding you back from ranking up, even with a crazy post count.  That is the brilliance of the Lithium ranking system Smiley Happy  You are rewarded for being being an all around (Active) user, and not just a post spammer.
