How did you get your forum rank?

Postby Evil Jim » 03 Jul 2008, 21:33

One thing I like about the LRR forums is that the ranks aren't just some indicator of how many posts you've made (ie.: newb, member, god, etc,) they are earned & then awarded by the LRR crew themselves. I've heard about a few in LRRcasts but there are many more people with ranks out there and there is a story behind each one; how they were earned & what they mean.

So let's hear them.

What do you mean "I don't see a rank." My rank is an f'ing Ninja! You'll NEVER see it until it's too late.

Most ranks are won through the contests they use to have in the podcasts.

Or just by share awesomeness...
If you beat a Cobra that is using a live hand grenade in a melee fight (and record it); then you are sure to get a rank.... at least unofficially

My rank is a reference to the gif, the Schrödinger's Fridge video and that I am a physics student.

Maybe there'll be more opportunities for forum ranks in the future. I'd like to hope so.

Pretty much all the ranks are from LRRcast contests (which we should really do more of...)
I think the only one that isn't is florn, who happened to be our 2000th forum member. There was a reason we did that... can't recall.

Oh well. Still, the reasoning behind them is always funny.

You need to have a contest where I can change my rank to "it's a lie!"

I'm pretty sure Allen! got his current title because he proclaimed his love for dungeon siege in a standalone topic not related to any challenge.

I know he had a furcadia related one before that though.

Yep, I got my original one from the podcast, but I can't remember what for. Then I asked Graham to change mine to Uwe Boll Fanboy, because that is what I am(so looking forward to the new movie coming out)
