Don't know the number of posts, but I think they are:

Peasant, levy, squire, knight, earl.
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

Does it matter... Nope

Just have a look at the ones that are now banned, that is what happens when someone is caring about rank.

I'd personally like some more diversity with the ranks.

At Dakka the ranks are very Empire specific (if that's the army you chose for 'favorite army' in your profile, which can be changed whenever you want), I helped make them a few years ago.
I'm not so sure but I believe they are; Peasant, Free Company, Swordsman, Greatsword, Pistolier, Knight, Captain (just became one this week, yah! An estimated 2 more years of posting will be needed to gain my next rank), Elector, Emperor.
I'd need to get another 3000 posts to become an Elector (5000 total), and another 5000 to become Emperor.

It's just for fun these ranks, with the number of posts needed usually doubled between ranks one needs to be the world's most obnoxious spammer to keep on rising through the ranks at a fast rate. Becoming known for ones quality posts is a lot better than being judged by ones post count (only newbies do that who assume more posts means a more important board member).

I think that it'll take at least a year before I become a knight on this board and I don't mind one bit if it'll take longer :D

Personally, I was a little disappointed when ranks were first introduced on this board. Not only are they unnecessary, they encourage 'spamming', elitism and cliqueishness (if that's a word).

In fact, I would prefer that the post count was not displayed, as is the case with the WPS forum.

I wouldn't lose a single tear if the ranks were dropped on this board, it can encourage all the ills you said.

On Dakka it's not really a problem, with each poster choosing his own favorite army out of all the armies that one can play from 40K, WHFB, LOTR etc. it's almost impossible to tell how 'important' someone is because of his rank. How the hell should I know if a 'Gondorian Knight' is an 'advanced' rank? (I really don't know actually)

Hark not to them D of U!

The Avatar names have nothing to do with the amount of posts you post.
Nay, they are related to the sum of the intelligence, attitude and general sexyness of the poster!

And yes, Squire is the highest.

Is it just me or have the ranks changed? It now appears that EC is the highest instead of Earl.

How come some people like Defender of Ulthuan have special ranks? Is there a way to edit your rank?

Grutch has his boring moments too?

He can give people a special rank..

On a few forums like this my title is ikek-boy

("ikke" is a danish word meaning "no"/"not" or "isn't", the reason for my name there is my frequent mispelling of "ikke" to "ikek" whoch one of my friends wrote a little story about and "ikek" ended up being a monster thing in a fantasy world, a little like a gross between a dragon, a flask of acid and oversized kneeler... in the story a rather glorius knight charged it and got devoured by it :D)
