    So you level up per messages? What about per contributions to the site?

    All the replies are literally just gonna be me 'ranking up' just to see if this really is the case...

    Well I guess someone could always correct me if I'm wrong but I think so.

    Fun fact: posts in the Off Topic subforum don't count towards your total.

    Don't go spamming other subforums to prove your point, though.

    Well unless the updating on the messages posted is slightly behind, it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    You're probably just making a fool of yourself m8.

    Well don't you think it's sort of stupid in all seriousness? It basically encourages spam, and it's a deceiving way to rank users.

    Yeah alright, fair enough m8.

    I'll be honest and say I just hate how it makes me look like a noob despite mapping for like 6years.
    But then again I guess I gotta be involved in the community in a communal way.

    What would the purpose of a ranking system even be, no one legitimately cares about their own rank or the rank of others, people are more likely to care about their reputation which is a lot harder to get than something tangible
