    I just think it's a novel concept that no one has or at least not that I know of.

    Keep it for sure. You're not likely to find anything else as unique and quirky.

    May I, however, suggest an intermediate step between montagosling and Fighting Montagoose? How about Montagoose Cadet or some-such at 2000?

    Do you mean a step between Fighting Montagoose and MR? Because 1000 posts and you become a Fighting Montagoose. I could put in something at like 200 posts I suppose. I think it's good how it is though don't you?

    1000 posts and you become a Fighting Montagoose

    Then you really have to work to become a MR at 5000. If you're truly dedicated you become a SIR at 15,000.

    Yeah, something like that. There's a huge jump there from 0 to 1000 (well, at least for those of you who obviously have a life). That's the one I meant. Montagosling at 0, Montagoose Prospect at 500, Fighting Montagoose at 1000, then perhaps something else at 2000 or 2500 before MR. Montagoose. Maybe change Fighting Montagoose to Rookie Montagoose, then Fighting and so on.

    Yeah... 'tis a huge banner.

    That's somewhat inappropriate on a Wednesday, no?

    Either way, I say keep it. Unless of course there is a valid reason to make the change.

    Is there?
    Even bigger jump from MR. to SIR. I better get posting!

    I say we keep the ranking system and perhaps come up with a slogan that would appeal to a wider audience.

    Something cheesy like "Where real hockey talk happens"

    Heh heh.

    oh great, more fluffing from you and prags is imminent

    I've said it before, I'll say it again.

    If you think something is wrong with this site, change it. If not, keep it the same. Personally, I'm happy with the group we have here. If we get too much more traffic, we'll be overrun with Notch's.

    Why? Someone already took your pride?

    You're still a fluffer-in-training. That's 30 words and only a single smiley. You've got to get your fluff-to-substance ratio a lot higher than that.
