I've revamped this forum's Elite Membership system. It consists of four ranks, which range from "Bronze Members" (whose main purpose is to give newer members something to aim for), all the way up to "Diamond Members" for dedicated members.

Each of these ranks is conferred automatically on reaching a certain post count. The boundaries for these are as follows:

Amethyst Members: 500 posts

Bronze Members: 1,000 posts
Posted Image

Silver Members: 2,000 posts
Posted Image

Ruby Members: 3,500 posts
Posted Image

Golden Members: 5,000 posts
Posted Image

Diamond Members: 10,000 posts
Posted Image

Platinum Members: 20,000 posts
Posted Image


In addition to cool member bars, Amethyst Members and above have access to certain additional privileges. These include (but are not limited to) the ability to avoid the 20-second flood control, and the ability to e-mail anyone on the board (for Golden Members and above).

I hope that explains what these titles mean. If you have any questions, please ask!

Sorry - it was the best I could do.

If you have any ideas for improving it, though, then go right ahead and tell me.

An update: the bar for Golden Members has been raised from 1,000 to 1,500. This is because once people have reached 500 posts, they tend to reach 1,000 pretty quickly, so I think the bar was set too low.

All current Golden Members with between 1,000 and 1,500 posts will keep their titles for now, but will lose them in the event of prolonged inactivity.

I've removed the line about 'grandfather rights', because there are no longer any members to whom it applies.

By now, all of the over-ranked members (who earned their ranks before the limits were raised) have either passed the new threshold for their current rank, fallen inactive, or become staff members.
