    I have read in another thread that certain number of posts gives you a belt rank. I currently have 19 posts but have no belt rank?

    For Martial Talk Rank it is just posts.

    Reputation is a different subject though.

    With all these high posters on this site, I think we need some more ranks after 3rd black. An easy example would be...

    Martial Talk Black Belt (Minimum Posts: 500)
    Martial Talk 2nd Black Belt (Minimum Posts: 700)
    Martial Talk 3rd Black Belt (Minimum Posts: 1000)
    Martial Talk 4th Black Belt (Minimum Posts: 1500)
    Martial Talk 5th Black Belt (Minimum Posts: 2500)
    Martial Talk Master(Minimum Posts: 5000)
    Martial Talk Senior Master (Minimum Posts: 10000)
    Martial Talk Grandmaster (Minimum Posts: 20000)

    20,000 is not that high for someone who has been here for 10 years....

    By this list, 5000 and 7000 are the same rank - MT Grandmaster. I'm confused... not that that's new!

    So what happens if you make it to 50,000 posts?

    You should have a label like Martial Talk Grandmaster god! or something...

    Or at least we could all pitch in to help with your carpal tunnel surgery.

    BTW how is it that some folks avoid having ranks appearing by their name? I've seen a few people with a whole lot of posts, high rep points and no "Master" belt. How does that work?

    Hi Geezer,

    Under the User CP, I select the Details section, then under Custom User Title I type in the title I want. In my case A Student of Martial Arts and then at the bottom I select the Save Change button.

    Good Luck

    I may try that. In the meantime, I'm going to keep my snazzy "Master" belt rank. Heaven knows it's as close to being a "master" as I'll ever get in this lifetime!
