Post Count Ranks Question

(1/3) > >>

What are the specific ranks (and posts required for each) available for each post count here? I've only got three as I've observed: "Outside in Line", "In the Audience" and "In Contestant's Row".

Outside in Line (1 star): 1-49 posts
In the Audience (2 stars): 50-149 posts
In Contestant's Row (3 stars): 150-299 posts
Walking the Golden Road (4 stars): 300-499 posts
Taking a Bonus Spin (5 stars): 500-999 posts
Double Showcase Winner (6 stars): 1,000+ posts

Same system has been in effect for at least eleven years. If it ain't broke, don't fix it I suppose.

Large number of posts ≠ high-quality posts.

Having been on here for a few months short of 17 years, those ranks have been there since at least the summer hiatus in 2003.

If you’ve been on the show, you get the title “TPIR Alumnus” regardless of your post count.

100% this.  Don’t post just to raise your post count.  Some of our highest quality posters are in the bottom tier, and we know who they are.  I’m not even sure why we keep count, really.  It invites the potential for trolling from new members who think they need to raise their post count to achieve some mythical level of superiority that doesn’t actually exist, and we’ve seen it happen multiple times.

While we’re on the subject, is there a way in SMF to only show post counts on our profiles and not on every single post?  Might be something to consider.
