Hi, I was just asking if anyone has a list of the ranks on AARoads. I saw one like a month ago but I forgot where it was. If anyone could send me a link for the ranks, that would be great. Thanks :colorful:

So basically, I am a dirt road right now. When I surpass 25 posts, I will be a frontage road? It seems a little confusing.

"Thanks," "me too," etc. without including anything of substance is considered spam/filler on any forum.  Your thanks is implied when you politely ask a question.

That's not what was being referred to. You must have missed him creating 10 identical new threads on the same subject.

I wouldn't consider thanking someone to be spam? Me too isn't necessary, but giving thanks if someone answers your question is fine but not necessary.

The list is so old that at the time the rank with 10,000 posts was meant as a joke. I.e. noone was anywhere close to that except Jake, who eventually left.

You didn't say you were, but posting the same thread in every board is spamming.

Now we have many people over 10,000 and someone is even over 20,000.

We need a new 20,000 post rank. Maybe just, "Forum Addict"? :-D

It's been hinted at that there is another rank for 25,000, we just don't know what it is yet.

Sadly, something like this would take a lot of effort to do, as we'd have to make tons of post groups when these would split the current ones we have.
