My rank?

5 replies 154 views Edited Jul 31, 2012
Can someone tell me please... Exactly what are these ranks and how do they increase? I believe mines says Cannon Fodder, whatever that means.

I think Cannon Fodder is the lowest rank in the ranking system, it's like "newbie", but they stopped using that term!

 

As for how does your rank change, a number of different factors influence your rank within the online community, most of them a secret known only to the Moderation Team & perhaps one or two others, however the best way to "rank up" within the community is to keep posting, basically be "active" within the Forums, also as your rank increases so your shield will alter too, more colored "dots" will be added as will different PlayStation symbols within that shield.

If the forums are similar to how they were in Jive, then more posts increases your rank :smileywink: Only the mods know what all of the rank titles are, so you have to keep posting to find them all!

 

Your shield rank also increases as you get more posts in, but I believe getting the Correct Solution gives you some points, too :smileyhappy:

Been registered 8 years, 23,000+ posts and I've no idea if I'm anywhere near the top rank? :smileyvery-happy:

If this was back in 2005/2006 I'd be able to tell you all the post counts, time registered and what ranks they were, but I'm clueless now :smileytongue:

The shield and the rank text are the same beast.  And it takes more than just a higher post count to move to a new rank. :smileywink:
