they don't tell you. just post and login often and your status will jump pretty quickly
Oh, I see. Alright thank you for the answer!
Somewhere I read your "ranking" is based on a formula that includes your registration date, number of sign in's, along with the number of posts and new threads. Memory is a little dim on this but, something along this line. Also, you need to achieve a certain rank in the community before you are able to upload your own avatar. Truth, as has already been mentioned in this thread it does not take very long to move up the ranks
And the formula is as clear as the FICO formula
Obviously length of service (registration date) has little effect, as certain of us have been here since very soon after the forum opened
No beef at all! Hence the smilie!
I am too proud of the fact that there are very few active members of the forum that have been here longer than me. I even predate the existence of Moderators!
This whole ranking system reminds me of guilds in most MMORPG games.. hahahaha
What's the difference between different ranks? What's the mini requirements to reach those ranks? Can any admin also provide those info? Just curious.
