    New titles for site members.....

    We have scrapped the whole member, junior member, senior member thing, and gone with something more police related.

    The following adjustments have been made to site titles:

    Rookie- Less than 50 posts

    Officer First Class- Minimum of 50 posts

    Master Officer- Minimum of 200 posts

    Corporal- Minimum of 500 posts

    Sergeant- Minimum of 1500 posts

    Lieutenant- Minimum of 2000 posts

    Captain- Minimum of 2500 posts

    Major- Minimum of 3000 posts

    If anyone has any suggestions to adding in any ranks, or adjusting the number of posts to reach a certain rank, post it here, and let us know.

    Whilst I agree that a rank structure is required...

    I'm a big fan of quality rather than quantity...

    (yeah, I should practise what I preach...I know..)

    So perhaps the reputation votes should be used as well as just number of posts..or instead of..

    The rank assigned would not mean the member has more authority over another...it would just be a way of indicating the number of posts a member has.

    In theory, I like your rep idea, but realistically, I think going by rep points would create too many problems. Maybe we can look into a minimum rep amount before reaching a certain rank?

    Rep points can be a pain in the ass. Too many people take rep points far too seriously as it is and seem to get their primary self worth from them.

    Yeah the bunch or drama bitches that do that. Me, I take some rep and give a little rep. I don't care one way or the other about rep really. I give out very little and take very little compared to some. But then again some people seem to cry for it....

    To be honest, do what you want with the rank system. Does not make a diffenence to me one way ot the other

    Yeah really, it's sad when someone sends you a PM with nothing of substance other than a request that you rep them... it's like they get a prize or something for having the most.

    It was just a suggestion.

    For me personally..(and I might be wrong in saying this)..but I only really feel comfortable with fellow LEOs on here..

    I'm not too happy in the public sections...

    Perhaps i'm a cop's cop....

    It's just that some people visit cop forums in the hope of catching a cop writing something wrong, or a chance to complain about a cop..

    Or even just an opportunity to have a free dig and a bash at a cop from the safety and sanctuary of their computer keyboard...

    That's why i'm more relaxed on the verified cop only sections..

    Easy to understand, I think...

    This from the guy who has posted in the past that he really only feels truly comfortable and primarily hangs out with LEOs and current and former servicemen because they are the ones who TRULY get it?

    Don't make me find the post Normypoo.

    On a lighter note, he's new here and doesn't know the public here like we do. He'll come around, unless you keep calling him names.
