    You are ranked on the basis of your post count.

    New member? Does it need a definition? Anyway, it means "new" member.

    Deftalker? Someone with more than 1000 posts and / or someone who has been on the site for long time.

    Junior member? Someone with more than 50+ posts.

    Also keep in mind that we do not entertain one liners/one line replies that are intended as means to increase ranks rather than add something beneficial to the discussions. Quality of your replies and posts shows who you are and what you are capable of not # of your posts. Number of posts means absolutely NOTHING around here.

    Air Marshal, world doesn't revolve around Pakistan Air force. Get your head out of the sand... with that said, I think ranks are fine the way they are unless a lot of members request changes. Still, we will go with something that is standard and not follow a particular country airforce.

    Plus, NO links in the signature- read the rules:

    I've been wondering how many post it takes to get promoted here. Has any though been given to diplaying the rank insignia as well.Also you don't haave the ranks Staff Sergent, Gunnery Sergent, or Lance Corporal just to name a few.

    If by "promoted" you mean going from Junior Member to something else, the usual benchmark for a Senior member is 500 posts.

    Displaying rank insignia isn't something done, since there are avatars and different nations use different insignia for ranks. Also not all possible ranks are listed.
