I never thought I'd get to 10,000 posts and now I have that stupid rank marker.  It'd be better if it was road related.

Here's my attempt at this, kind of like a progression from your home as you embark on a cross-country trip:

1-2 Driveway
3-9 Cul-de-sac
10-24 Local street
25-49 Collector
50-99 Arterial
100-249 Main street
250-499 County road
500-999 State highway
1000-2499 US highway
2500-4999 Expressway
5000-9999 Turnpike
10000-14999 Freeway
15000- 19999 Interstate
20000+ Likes the forum way, way too much
Indiana: counties 100%, highways 100%
Illinois: counties 100%, highways 61%
Michigan: counties 100%, highways 56%
Wisconsin: counties 86%, highways 23%

If you listen to a particular sect of road cultists the top rank here ought to be Beaver Nuggets.  :rolleyes:

On a more serious side, Forest Service Road seems like a layup ranking that wasn't utilized.

If we are going incorporate the AAroads legend then there needs to be a rank of Teddy Roosevelt somewhere.

At least one of the possibilities listed in this thread is already in use for a rank level nobody has reached yet.

"Likes the forum way, way too much" was originally added when the forum was new enough that 10,000 posts seemed like a ridiculous number of posts for someone to have. It was sort of meant to be an Easter egg in that way. We've never changed it since then.

This complaint sounds like the people on social forums who, just after having a baby, suddenly complains that vehicles are too loud, fireworks are going off, friends and family should schedule their gatherings around the baby's nap time, and everything we all know needs to change because of the baby.

The marker is what it is.  If someone wants it changed, they should've petitioned the admins when it didn't affect them.

So I may still say that I don't quite like it?
I remember when I joined, there was a discussion about first user reaching "way too much" and if it is a personal marker or just about leader reaching certain milestone.
Few years later, the joke repeated 20+ times (as in 20+ users with the badge) is no longer funny.

I was really curious about that because I didn't see anything obvious in the preceding replies, but that... might be it?

I have an equally strong suspicion, kphoger, that you'll be the first to find out, considering you're the closest to 25k posts.

Concur with this. I'm not a big fan of the badge either - the text is OK, but the giant smiley is excessive now that 20+ users have reached that level. And "way, way too much" is a relative term, so its value continues to go down with every user that reaches that rank.

I don't mind that as an alternative, just as you have it here with no smiley necessary.

I've never even been to Olive Garden, but it was a well-played joke considering the OP's frequent disparaging of OG in other threads.
