I like it but unfortunately there could be some users who take that negatively.

If it were simpler to apply custom member titles to individuals, I'd be fully on board with that. That's one feature I miss from when we were on vBulletin. I don't remember who the user was but someone had the title "Commander of the repost police" and I really enjoyed seeing that one.

I suggested "Post $expletive" in another thread, but that probably wouldn't sit too nicely either....

Now that'd be funny.

People buy twitter followers, I wonder if some folks "paid" to get a rank upgrade on RFD.

I'm not sure that people will like being in the lurker or noob ranks. I like the others but those are too long to be a member rank.

We are brain-storming here., no prob.

Are you too concerned with ruffling a feather? The reality is, inarguably, that with a 0 post count, you are undeniably a lurker. What's the big deal? Motivation to be a contributing member? Deterrent to remaining a lurker?

Give me the max length of chars, I can work with that.

Perhaps the amounts between titles should change a little

seems there are 4 different titles from newbie to addict and then its all 5000 before title changes. Drop it to 2500 and add another in between. That way you don't lop to many together like addict does and those are big numbers to reach anywy.

You cold also add titles for extreme deal posters vs replys. Like the deal discover would be first time deal posting. National treasure of Deals for posting over 1000 deals. Deal guru who "Located the Arc" for posting over 5000 actual deals. Deal expert that "Uncovered the Grail" for posting 10000 actual deal threads

Oh if they add a deal from a banned site/product/brand. They earn a temporary "Snake oil poster" or "Placebo Poster" title. At which they must post 5 legit deals to have it removed!!!
