For example:

  • 0-99 posts = baby
  • 100-249 posts = child
  • 250-499 posts = teenager
  • 500-999 posts = young adult
  • 1000+ posts = grown-up

(The reason for the odd end is so when you hit a milestone it changes, not the post after)

This is a good idea however I think it may send the wrong message to some people. You may find buyers thinking that these “ranks” are related to skill level and tend to stay away from the lower ranks.

Thats just my opinion so lets see how everyone else feels. :)

Sorry Jar… but this community is not about posting as many posts as posible in order to get to the next level of “forum poster badge”.....

I think that users do not need an incentive to create posts or threads.

This community is about helping others, communication between authors and buyers, about the creation of web design/flash/audio/video/3d/etc and if someone posts something is because that person wants to give his opinion. A forum poster badge would destroy that. That would create lots of unnecesary posts from users, who just try to get new badges. The community does not need that.

I agree. Anyway isn’t the Forum Superstar badge all about that (contribution to the community/forum)? :)

This system would just promote lots of unnecessary, useless posts because everyone is doing it for the badges. While the forum superstar badges promote the quality of posts which is, in my opinion, the right way to go. ;) Sorry Jar
