    What i really love about GBATemp are the ranks and the icons for them. But when i notice there was also cool Rank Icons for like staff members i thought to myself, What if someone at 10,000 post's has the access for Using there own custom Rank icon!

    I just thought it would be a cool idea IMHO.

    Dude seriously, your not even making me smile.

    But I mean Appropriate stuff. And that's too big for a rank.

    haha. that pretty funny. but seriously no. The only person whos ever reached that level is Hadrian AFAIK. That pretty much would be a perk for like a dozen people in the next 6 years. It isn't worth the time for the staff to incorporate it if it'll only be a few people. At most I can see them getting a special icon not their own icon.

    Hadrian's the only person with 10000+ posts, so it wouldn't be that useful anyhow.

    As much as I'd like to have my own icon (one week Ghostbusters, the next Batman) it is pointless right now seeing no one else has even spammed 9000 posts.

    Those who do have a chance are staff and staff must have the same icon as each other and then you get down to none staff and none of them have even reached 6000 posts.

    But by then you might want to be a Moderator or something similar. This is common for people with a lot of posts.

    Can't it just be 3k posts? How about that? It'll be like custom title.

    I don't think we need to encourage spam any more than we already do thanks.

    The contests just need 100 posts and the bumping of old topics was real bad. I guess we don't need any more spam.

    Though I'll like a gibson icon [​IMG]

    Just for fun, why not allow this function for people who have not been warned for at least a year, and take away this privilege when they get warned at least once. This encourages more tempers to be good. [​IMG]
