    I was browsing on this Cricket forum not long ago and saw that they had rankings for members like Newbie, Rookie, Legend and other rankings like that. It looked like fun, and was wondering if we could do something similar with this Forum? :)

    We used to have it on the old forum.

    www.marathonstadium.com/oldforum

    I think that was the link.

    We wont be doing that if we get rid of the post count all together.

    And plus, that means you wouldn't be able to keep 'Newcastle fan since 1994'

    Most people wanted their own Ranking names.

    Ah, even though I wasn't on the old forum for long, I still have some memories.

    Should have one day each year where we go back to the design of the old forum just to re-live the memories.

    I'd love to, but it would be pretty difficult!!!

    I think the easiest thing would be try to do a different display of this forum (like with the home and away ones) that looks like the old forum ... but Pumba did all the layout on this forum, and he seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth. I don't really know how to change anything.

    Is it a skin of the forum? If so it should be pretty easy.

    Used to run a forum that used VBulletin too.

    That old forum is different software, phpbb. So we'd have to rebuild the design from scratch.
