Re: Coming Soon: New Member Ranks

That makes sense. I just giggle a little when my rank changes. I don't come on here for the rank though, so they can rank me how ever they want. :smileywink:

Hi my25reasons,

 

The rank names might not exactly relate to every users. The ranks are based on more than just posts.  There is a formula that includes reading, posting, visiting, etc.

Sorry if I missed this but I've been a member here since 2007 and my status has been changed to new contributor . I'm confused because I see others who have posted less then me and registered much later,  yet they have a higher ranking.

 

Who decides what your ranking is? What's the criteria?

 

I don't post often but I'm a long term lurker.

 

Thanks for your response as I am sadden:smileysad: by this change in my status.

Your PLUS Score is: 800 on a scale of 330 - 830.

Chances are that your rank before was "Valued Member" and "New Contributer" is actually a step up in the ranks. So, congrats!

 

Refer to this post though if you have more questions. :smileywink: :smileyvery-happy:

Hi steffiejoe,

 

The ranks are based on more than just posts.  There is a formula that includes reading, posting, visiting, etc.  Here is the ranking hierarchy with New Visitor being the beginning rank for everyone.  I looked at your numbers and you're not going to find anyone with a lower post count at a higher rank. If you do, please let me know and so I can investigate.  Thank you.
