Yeah, how about "Supreme Sailor" or something to that effect?

I know it has nothing to do with Donkey Kong Country, but think about it: Ice Climber. You know, instead of Cliff Climber. We could also use the ranks from Donkey Kong Country 3, such as Cheatin' Chimp, Main Monkey and Prime Primate.

OH! For the most uber-1337 member of them all, bestow upon them the title of Kong Karate Master. :ugeek:

I would've thought that would be Video Game Hero or something like that.

Eh, the DKU already uses Video Game Hero. We need something more original and cooler.

Quick Question: Is the "Seeker of Mysteries" title exclusive to Jomingo? I haven't seen anyone else with it yet.

I suggested alliteration since DKC uses it a lot :D

I believe so, he had another one last week ¬¬ Hope you won't be using it as some kind of MSN personal message 'ey Yo-Mango? xD

I dunno, maybe some titles from the DKC2 (or was it 3?) High-score tables like 'Top Banana' etc.

I know, I've just been obsessed with the Ice Climbers lately...

Hehe, yes. That thread probably made it a tad more obvious.

Back on topic- I really like the alliteration idea, because it ties in with Donkey Kong Country. Maybe Ice Climber and Kong Karate Master could be special titles... although the former isn't really DKC-related. Ah well.

Hey, I didn't even notice that new title. Either it's exclusive or I am the first one other than Qyzbud to reach a certain number of posts. But usually that only comes at nice round numbers, like 700. I guess I'm special. :D

I don't think I have the power to change the titles like that. If I do, I don't know how. ;)

Jomingo's now a Seeker of Secrets? How many of these "Forum Ranks" are there Qyz? O_o

I might get crazy with these username editings =P

I was thinking (sorry for the triple posting O_o (enable the button! D=)):

In some forums there are some kind of contests where prizes are sometimes user-bars, mailed things, etc.

Well... one of the "etc" stuff are Personalized Forum Ranks. Wouldn't it be cool if in the next Screenshot Competition you allow to have that as of one of the prizes? I mean... they do nothing bad =)

Thing would be like, if in the next screenshot competition (from the one in the example), the winner already has a personalized forum rank, he/she would have to wait for next year to be allowed to change it, or would have the chance of giving it to another member. But of course, if that member wins the next screenshot competition, he/she would have to do the same thing the member that gave him the gift would.

Kinda confusing but I know you understand it =)

Sounds like a good idea for a prize. Really, there's few things we can award people on the internet, and that's one of the best idea's I can think of.

But of course, Screenshot competitions aren't the only competition's we are having. For instance, this topic. If anyone comes up with an article that we want to use, perhaps we will award them some kind of prize such as this.

Yay! My idea is being taken! =)

Anyway, since Qyzbud doesn't want to tell, well... they're already in the Member's list, but I will still post them in Spoilers. This are how I think user ranks are managed, it's not accurate.

1-49 - Tourist

Currently, only Kong-Fu is a Veteran Venturer and Jomingo a Seeker of Secrets =)

Well, I know only as much as you guys, Qyz hasn't revealed any secrets even to us mods. I think it's better for members to find out each rank for themselves, but I guess there's nothing wrong with you trying to figure out how it goes.

I've seen a special "secret" rank two times now. The first I have seen with this rank was Cody and it could be he hasn't noticed the rank.
But let's keep it a secret a little longer :mrgreen:

My rank keeps changing

Earlier I got a special "K.Rool's Advocate" rank, then it changed to Seeker of Secrets, then to Seeker of Mysteries.
Previously "Kong-Fu"

Strange, I thought that Seeker of Mysteries came before Seeker of Secrets, and K. Rool's Advocate? I don't remember seeing that anywhere.

That's for *triple 6* posts. You know, it's supposed to be a sign of the devil, so fittingly there's a rank related to K. Rool at that point, because he is evil... :twisted:
I also thought Seeker of Mysteries came first.

What about the rankings "keg rider", "barrel thrower", or "banana collector"?

Good suggestions, but Qyzbud would rather have the Forum Ranks not have to do with the DK series, but instead to be names dealing with exploration.

In that case, "fruit collector" might involve exploring.

Yeah, and I'm trying to think of a rank that involves digging, like "gold digger" (okay, that sounded wrong).

How about "Gravedigger?" Or Graverobber?

How about Raider of Temples?

All of these sound pretty good, I wonder what Qyzbud will think of these? I heard he's going camping, and he'll return in probably a week or something. Until then, we might as well think of some more. How about "Sea Diver" or "Ocean Diver" or "Pearl Grabber"?

The rank given to someone who reaches 1337 posts(which I just passed).

Very clever. ;)
