How does the forum's rankings work?

Recommended Posts

Changes based on the users postcount. No doubt someone has an exact list of postcount/title.

The mods are able to provide custom titles, you can't do them yourself.

Oh and, if you do get to 5000+ can you ask admin's for your own rank?


Covered in the FAQ.

Titles are usually given out as a response to ones posts, stupidity, etc. You can of course PM the mods asking for a title, but its at their discretion and I think it best to not harass them about minor things like that.

Btw, welcome to the forums

I dunno if this is correct, because my status is still at "Member" and I have 542 posts.

I think Forum Regular is currently 666 to 999 posts. One that's missing from the list is "Can't Post", which is self-explanatory.

I got my title/avatar back when a mod (Ichor I think) was being nice and handing them out in a thread. This was back when you couldn't change your avatar. Titles/avatars were also given out in a contest where you had to guess what level/pwad a screenshot was from.

My custom title seems to have more to do with how much I posted on ND in 2002-2003 than anything I've done here. I forget how that came about. Probably has something to do with my sig on ND.

It used to be "I must be Lüt" but then other people started posting more than me.

PS, most of the time custom titles are a bad thing.

And you just can't get rid of them.

I think I tricked one of the mods at some point, except I couldn't come up with anything good :[

Still in Senior status after 8 years.

Still a Doomworld noob.

Still not "in" on certain aspects of Doomworld lore; such as who the guy is in the Post Hell banner. Someone once told me what his name is (which I forget), but that didn't explain who he is and why he's there.

It seems that it's the highly technical people with little free time who get branded as "Why don't I have a custom title by now?!"

I'm going to assume you copied that from somewhere else, not known it already, Junior Member. You're quite a mystery.

That's Fredrik and I can't recall why he's there.

Well, I've been lurking for quite a long time before registering, heh.

And yes, it was copied from elsewhere. :P

He used to be a frequent troll/shitposter that got a lot of his threads tossed in there. That's also why (fake) BBG is in the Post Hell Doomworld logo (and why he was made mod of Post Hell for a while).

I "won" mine in the guess the level / pwad thread that Lüt had some years ago. He still owns me about 3 more titles. :P
