truth be told, i just haven't been able to come up with a tasteful set of ranks that wouldn't be too hokey.

but, i'll ask y'all if you'd like post-count ranks, and if yes, i'd sure appreciate some suggestions on what they'd be.

I think it would be cool but I dunno what ranks we should have that would be related to motorized bicycling. Mabye like 25cc, 48cc, 50cc, 70cc, 80cc? i dunno, my idea is pretty stupid.

so, what names do we give the ranks, if we do them at all?

How about a posted word count instead of posting count. I have been involved on some forums where there are lots of fluff filler posts just to pad folk's post count. It seems that this just wastes bandwidth.

yeah, ranks can lead to gratuitous posting, like somehow those ranks really mean something...i'm not so sure that'd be a problem here, tho.

ok, i thought of maybe using a "speed" theme instead of levels of knowledge, also thinking someday ranks could designate levels within an official club, so we'd want them to be more serious. still not sure we'll even do it, but here's what i have so far in a "speed" theme.

fill in the blanks, please, or suggest your own...still dependant on whether the community wants 'em.
