Ever number of posts a new rank is given. 0-Virgin 1-x is Seduced etc and so forth. Whne you hit 5000 posts you move to Fae, 10000 its Carnite I believe so on and so forth :)

*laughs* You can always suggest new names for the ranks, but not going to gaurantee that they will be changed...I think 200-250 post is the next rank.

I think gender neutral titles would be more suitable. I've noticed a lot of the later titles tend to dance around a theme of types of Fair Folk.

I find sanity overrated. You may be able to tell :)

It seems silly to be worried about the gender-neutrality of something that random?  Geez, some people take this place a bit too seriously! :D

I love the titles. . .I think they are GREAT!!!!  I really don't have a problem with them and it seems most of the people who have posted here haven't had a problem with them either.  :)

Got no problem with titles, and I do like them. Bacchae I liked specially since it was quite a while since I have seen that word being used :)

Let me reiterate I don't have a problem with them, I just was curious.

I was wondering what the "seduced" title was, thanks for posting that, I like the help section.

It's certainly an unusual sequence, numerically speaking.

Not really. The numbers in between the factors of 10 are all rounded square roots of factors of 10.

So every time you reach a new rank, you need to reach around 3.1622 times that number of posts to reach the next rank.

The only odd rank is Addict, only 18378 posts after Sidhe, which is 21622 posts after Carnite.

Then perhaps I should amend that to 'irrational' ;)
