Forum Rankings
You can achieve the ranks below by spending a specific amount of time actively browsing or posting on our forum. Please do note that leaving the browser window open will not increment the time spent and therefore won't help you with achieving a higher rank. We have decided to refrain from using a post count based ranking system to encourage you to post only when it matters and therefore reduce the number of off-topic posts.
