    I think if anyone reaches L19 they need to get out of the house.

    ALso, L18 and L19 overlap.... so do 13 and 14... 14 and 15... 15 and 16.

    I would stop after L7. If you have too many titles, it's losing its value.

    Nope, we definatly need ranks after that, however, I feel that the ranks should be normalised slightly, for example: I have one of the highest post counts and I doubt be passing L8 any time this centuary.

    I look forwards to becoming a supreme member :thumbup1:

    Edit: Just realised I'm already on L6 and well on my way to L7, its L10 where the gaps become rather large, but thats alright I guess

    The point isn't to make them all necessarily obtainable, at least right now. What we do want is a title for if and when someone gets there.

    Reason the gaps start getting large is because if your rank title changed every 50 posts it wouldn't be as rewarding.

    Word

    :S you've got too much time on your hands to be working stuff like that out. thats 4 years, almost exactly! thats almost long enough for valve to make TF3 - or put another way, I'll be 20! (I'm 16 now)

    Edit: how did you work this out? I got 1670 days... which is nearly a whole year extra

    you avg 7 posts a day.

    currently there you had around 640 posts.

    11000 - 640 = 10360

    10360 /7 = 1480

    Yaa. it didnt turn out the way i wanted.

    I like the title's so they will stay the say. same as the post requirements.

    What i don't like is the "L#: Title" I feel the L# is out of place.

    I'm sure in time I'll change it to a graphic and work it in, however i really dont want to clutter and overuse the graphics as the site skin is a great, simple, clean skin. With that no matter how quality the graphics you use it will still clutter it up, so i gotta hti the board with this again =/

    Till then this is it currently =)

    Some titles seem backwards, like respected expert being less than resident expert. and guru should top them both.

    Well I think my original point that the highest few are too high holds true, I'm going at a terrible rate of 7.27 posts per day and thats going to take me nearly 4 years to reach the top level.... will we still be playing TF2 by then? even if TF2 is still going strong I highly doubt that me and my intensive mapping will be which means I'll probably stop short of highest by several thousand.
    I don't to sound arrogant or anything but if I'm not going to be able to reach anywhere near the highest level, no one is.
