    Those are what are called "Ranks" and they are post bassed, Below are the following ranks, with the number of leaves to go with them:

    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank1.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]Innocent Bystander - 1 to 5 posts
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank2.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]New Recruit - 5 to 10 posts
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank3.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]First Flight - 10 to 25 posts
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank4.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]Gamma Flight - 25 to 50 posts
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank5.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]Beta Flight - 50 to 100 posts
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank6.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]Beta Flight - 100 + posts
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank7.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]Custom Rank (you choose your own Rank Name) - 250 + posts

    There are also the ranks of:
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank9.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]Moderator (This is Phil)
    [img=left:06e1759ad8]http://forum.alphaflight.net/images/rank10.gif[/img:06e1759ad8]Site Admin (This is me)

    I've been thining of changing the Alpha Flight rank to kick in @ 150 posts, rather than 100, but I'm sill on the fence about that.

    It was suggested that I assign a special rank to the person with the first letter published in the new Alpha Flight series, I will do this, and I will probably also make a separate rank set for anyone who gets a letter published

    Well it took me 4 days to get to Beta Flight so soon enough I'll be an official Alpha Flight member in good standing. Hey did anyone realize that me an Guardian James Hudson were both born in the same city. Yep I'm from London, Ontario.

    I'm curoius, as no one commented on the fact that I'm thinking of changing the number of posts for the Alpha Flight rank, are there any objections to my doing so?

    well, it's not "MY" forum, just 'cause I run the thing It's everyone's forum, because I made it for my fellow fans, so as far as I'm concerned it belongs to everyone who uses it. That makes everyone's feedback and happyness with how things are working to be one of the most important things in my mind

    I don't mind if you change the number of posts for a rank. I'll get there eventually. I have around 1500 posts on one messageboard I go to. So I'll get to the top rank that I can get sometime. Plus I don't really come here just to get a rank anyway but to talk to others that like Alpha Flight like I do.

    Well, I'm slowly making my way to to Alpha Flight status. If the points increase, than it just means I have to work a little while longer. No biggie.

    I noticed that. I though all these wonderful new members might have scared you off! Ether that or you have developed a terrible phobia for cupboards. You keep training, then well see if you are deserving of Alpha Flight status!
