    Some of you may have noticed that your peon rank icon have changed.
    This is no bug! We did this intentionally :)

    Furthermore, newly registered members (initiates) will be the proud wearers of the peon rank icon until they reach a minimum post count of 100 posts.
    Having 100+ posts unlocks the Grunt icon.

    Be advised, that the post count currently set to 100 is subject to change.

    Also, additional user ranks may be added in the future.

    Currently there are no special privileges that come along with the Grunt rank icon.

    That actually is pretty nice. Any sort of rewards are pretty hard to acquire in the site.

    Something simply visual like that is nice. I approve! :thumbs_up:

    I want an icon of the guy in my avatar! Or maybe a Diablo III Wizard...

    Especially seeing as I exceed the 100 post requirement by about 137 times.

    How about:

    Peon - 0 - 99 Posts/Points
    Grunt - 100 - 599 Posts/Points
    Headhunter - 600 - 999 Posts/Points
    Spirit Walker - 1000 - 1499 Posts/Points
    Tauren - 1500 - 1999 Posts/Points
    Berserk Headhunter - 2000 - 2499 Posts/Points
    Blademaster - 2500 - 2999 Posts/Points
    Chaos Blademaster - 3000-4999 Posts/Points
    Rexxar - 5000-7499 Posts/Points
    Custom Icon (Nyan Cat, Pacman, Sprite, Fanta, Coke, Book, etc.) - 7500+ Posts/Points
    ------
    I have not seen (yet.) anyone with these icons. So how about it?

    EDITED: Lowered the Post/Points( See my other Post ) Requirements. Added Custom Icon.
    EDIT 2 : Oh yeah. Mods are Raiders, replaced with Spirit Walker

    Suggestion (is it allowed? :s)
    Why don't you add the wind rider icon for people who has 500 posts or more? :D

    Well, like I stated in the first post.
    Most likely will. Seeing as the "Grunt" idea is generally well-received from what I hear around the community.

    You should add a "Veteran Rank" with more than X resources or post.

    And of course 1 map means 100 models. :D

    EDIT: And of course 1 campaign means 1,000 models. :D

    Yeah. The post maybe a little off. How about a point system?
    1 Rep = 1 Point
    1 Post = 1 Point
    1 Pending Resource = 1 Point
    1 Approved Resource = 3 Points
    1 Pending Map = 1 Point
    1 Approved Map = 5 Points
    1 Rejected Map/Resource = -1 Point
    1 Director's Cut Map = 25 Points
    ----
    Yeah. And for the
    I like that. I want to see a moving pacman on my username.

    This is actually very creative, this would be nice, don't know how easy it would be to implement, though.
