To reach the next rank up, you will need to meet certain criteria. For the lower ranks this is just a post count however the higher ranks will require a certain amount of reputation as well as posts to level up. To stop intentional spamming, we will not be disclosing for now what the post count required for each rank is.

This is a first version of the ranks so there may be issues that need to be fixed and figured out. If you spot any issues or think something is wrong, please post it in the discussion thread for the new ranking system here: 

 

Your new rank may not be display until you log out and log back in. You might have to make a post to trigger the system. I will watch this carefully. 

As far as I am aware from testing, the ranks are levelling up automatically. However everyone had to be set to the default rank of Newbie, so if your current post count and reputation should mean you're in a higher rank, it may not trigger. If this is the case, log out and log back in and post a reply. If this doesn't work, I will need to manually assign you to your new rank. After which point you should be moved to the next rank when you hit the requirements - this has worked in testing so I believe it's just an error caused by the default rank.

Once we iron out some of the starter issues, we will make ranks even more important, including special sections of the forums, Store discounts etc.
