Does anyone really know what member rankings mean? Does anyone really know what constitutes member rankings? One only has to look at the member list of the forum sorted by member ranking to see that most of the top 10 or top 25 members ranked on the site never seen to be active.
II do know that some of the members ranked in the top 25 have been banned and thus will not or cannot return and participate. Others have not checked into the site in many years and either have decided to leave or have sadly died.
Lastly if one looks at the top three members that are ranked as the highest two of those names are the same person and the third is one that has been banned. The value of the member ranking of the two that are essentially the same person has achieved such a high value that given the dates they participated it's almost impossible to conceive how such a ranking could have been obtained numerically wise I mean.
It is not being envious of a ranking number more than it is just a curiosity of how someone could obtain such a large value when activities on the forum yield a set numerical value toward that member rank and there just seems to be confusion over what actions contribute to the ranking, how much those contributions are, and how over such a short time such numerical levels could be achieved?
Then again I haven't much to do tonight so just thought I would post this curiosity and see if it gets an answer on the feedback forum?
