Is there anything good that comes out of having rank?

There are no special priviledges with a rank. Its just something to show you're a reg on the forums.

As to getting one, I only just got my rank the other day, and I've been on for a long time. Even then it was only because someone pulled some strings with some mods on another Ubi forum (he likely doesn't want to be swamped, to I won't say who).

This is the best advice to follow IMO.

The respect of other forumites also helps if not moreso with mods and admins.

Spamming isnt really bad... if its done under control... That means in say 2 threads in a off-topic forum...

Like the forum chat... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

But flaming... that is just BAD...

As to my title... well... I wanted it.
I got it. Simple deal really.
I was way past my 3000th post when it happened... (im really 1200 posts ahead of what I have... but this forum stole them. in the move..) so I guess it was around 1700/2900 posts ago... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That just gives way to spammers, like Fat_Person25 (Don't ask).

I'd say that a certain registration date should be added to it as well. Say 6 or 7 months.

I think only the regs of the SC forum should get a rank from SC Mods, or if you are reg on [insert game here]-forum you should get a rank.
What I mean is: if you got 2000 posts on forum X and switch to forum Y, then say: I am a reg: Ive got 2000 posts, can I have a rank?. That doesnt count as a reg IMHO.

Alderbranchh
10-12-2004, 10:04 AM
Well since these are UBI forums... its shouldnt matter...
And if he is a regular and got a rank from another forum its easy to change that by asking that mod if the others happen to be stick-in-the-muds... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I know that ill retain my rank no matter what so I dont care much... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
But I think most of the regulars should have one rank... atleast if they have shown they are regulars...

As to spammers... Its the mods JOB to make em stop. First warn them, then perhaps warn them again. Then ban them for a limited time (post in their email that the account is suspended for X days for instance)... then ban them permanently if they keep at it.

That limits spammers so they cant do that.

Well... that means in my "system" you should have a rank.

Does PTs really count for post-count?
