How do forum ranks work?

13 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

A question and only because I noticed something odd. I figured forum rank had some ratio between posts/likes per posts or something along those lines. However, I just noticed that my rank actually went down (I think when I hit 200 posts since I'm just over that now and didn't notice it before) from Ensign to Midshipman. Obviously doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, but I was curious what the basis of these things are.

 

Also, since I bring it up, how does the reputation work? Does it do anything? I notice there is a "reputation activity" function in the profile page when I was rooting around through there.

 

Thanks.

The more post you make the higher your rank goes up.

I run a cpl forums and they're set to rank up after the first post, then 5th post, then 10th post, then 20th post, then 30th post. etc

The structure of the forum ranks differ slightly from the in-game ranks, for some reason midshipman is lower than ensign (which in the time period was not a naval rank for Britian [and still isn't], but a junior army officer rank equivalent to the modern day second lieutenant)

Right, I understand all that.

 

But I went Midshipman -> Ensign -> Midshipman

 

That's what I don't understand.

I never even bothered with looking at my rank I suspect the dev probably reordered things and the amount of posts required per rank hence the change in your rank now.

That's one possibility; I don't see any probability.

You may have a secret realistic feature of the forum, where you can loose or gain ranks according to favors, connections, moods, availability of titles, and of course quality of posts.
