[Idea] Are post ranks a thing on JoyFreak?

I think that there should be a "point" system and a series of ranks that go up and down depending on how many posts the user has (or a better option would be their reputation/reaction score count.) I think that the ranks should be based on gaming terms.
I also think that earning ranks should start off easy (from 0 to 5, and 5 to 10) but should be more difficult (for example, 500 to 1000 and 1000 to 2500).
To be honest, 5000 posts is a pretty good cutoff of Gaming Immortal because anything more wouldn't be necessary - unless the time comes for a higher rank.) There's one more rank called Gaming Legend, with 10,000 posts. It'll take a while to get there! ;)

Post Count
0-5*: Camper (it would be 1, but xenForo recommends that a post minimum of 0 is provided.) => 1 pip
5-10: Hacker => 2 pips
10-50: Keyboarder => 3 pips
50-100: Aimbotter => 4 pips
100-500: Hardcore Button Masher => 5 pips
500-1000: Tireless Contributor => 6 pips
1000-2500: Hardcore Gamer => 7 pips
2500-5000 Gaming God => 8 pips
5000-10000: Gaming Immortal => 9 pips
10000+: Gaming Legend => 10 pips

*The 0 post count means that anyone who joins automatically gets the role.

To set up new ranks, you'd need to go into the user title ladder and set a rank for each number of posts.

Reputation Count (in regards to rank) - this is the other thing that may work out if the post count ranks don't.
0-10: Camper = 1 pip
10-50: Keyboarder => 2 pips
50-100: Aimbotter => 3 pips
100-200: Hardcore Button Masher => 4 pips
200-250: Tireless Contributor => 5 pips
250-300: Hardcore Gamer => 6 pips
300-500: Gaming God => 7 pips
500-750: Gaming Immortal => 8 pips
750-1000: Gaming Legend => 9 pips
1000+: Gaming Transcendent = 10 pips
(This refers to the amount of likes you have. So to get Gaming God, you'd need at least 300 likes.)

Is this in addition to your other post or same sort of thing? I like these ideas and will definitely look into implementing it. If you’ve got more information on the subject, feel free to add to the post!

It's separate. Originally, it was supposed to be separate, but now that I think about it, they are basically identical. I've merged both of the threads (post ranks and service awards) into one thread.

I think something like 0 to 100 should be in count stack. Like each incremental rank should be at 100 post and high. Lower just makes it easy for people to spam.

Ranks would be a nice thing, but from my experience... ranks are pretty difficult to do on xenForo (even the 2.0 upgrade didn't really solve the problem).
