These images go from 1 star to 5 stars and are based on your post count, except for moderators and founders which get special images so they can easily be identified in a thread.
Here's the breakdown of how the ranks work:
1 = Less than 100 posts
1.5 = 100+ posts
2 = 500+ posts
2.5 = 1000+ posts
3 = 2000+ posts
3.5 = 4000+ posts
4 = 8000+ posts
4.5 = 10000+ posts
5 = 20000+ posts
In Internet Explorer, you can also hold your mouse over the "star bar" and it will tell you the current rank and how many posts are needed for the next rank.
We did this so that those people that are active on the boards can be rewarded and identified beyond their user status. This does NOT mean that you should start spamming up the boards to try and reach the next rank. Mods will be on full alert for this kind of behavior.
We may make some slight changes to how this works and/or tweak the statuses around a bit. So, love it or hate it, let us know how you feel... but be kind
