    This is why there should be time-based ranks as well as post-based. This guy's been here for 5 years but still can't access the Trading Forum or the Shoutbox.

    Post new topics every hour about how you like bacon. That's a recipe for success here.

    I'm not sure about the shoutbox, but there are two conditions for Trading Area, either you have more than 100 posts, or you're a member for over a year..So the guy can access Trading Area..
    But I agree that ranking should be done with the timing and post counting..

    Welcome Advanced Member!! [​IMG]
