    No points.

    Your forum & profile currently has a number of different ranks and badges that can be earned by any member of the website. We understand these awards are not much, and they are kind of “cheesy” if you will, but we really wanted a fun way to be able to award members for their contributions to the project. We also wanted a way to make members aware of one’s expertise, status, location, etc, without having to look directly into a users profile. This system allows us to do all of these things, and we will be adding many new features as time goes on, so their will always be something new. Remember, these badges and ranks are for fun, so have fun with it!

    The following is a running list of “Ranks” and “Badges” that can be automatically earned by way of gaining “points” by utilizing different features on the website, or by being manually awarded with a status by an Administrator via PM:


    (We have kept the points required secret!)


    “F.O.B” (Fresh off the boat)




    “Active Member”


    “Active Participant”


    “Active Contributor”


    “Trusted Enthusiast”







    (Many more to come!)

    God Bless
