Hi Apaches! As you may have noticed we are in the process of implementing a new ranking system. You may have noticed that you have been attributed a certain rank. Now, first of all I just wanted to make it clear that all ranks are subject to change as we continue to work on this system. If you have a lower rank and don't understand why, it's because the system still is still in its early stages. Many have been asking what you have to do to earn ranks on the site. Basically the more you use the website (upload videos, post in forums, comment on videos, like posts, or get likes yourself) The more points you will gain, and the more you will rank up. The more ranks you gain, the more site features and authority you will get (to be explained later). If you get an upload 'featured' on the site, you will get a point boast. All comments made in 'AC chat' will not count towards earning points since it is not supported in the system.
I will go into far more detail on this system later, after it's fully integrated. For now, I just wanted to give a sort of broad explanation on how it works. The new karma system on the page is now on a 'like' to 'dislike' basic. (Karma will count towards rank obviously)
If you have any questions feel free to sent me a pm, but remember that we are still working on everything. We actually have a large portion of code that is going to go live soon which should make the rank system work better.
