4. Lizard
5. Shrew
6. Primate
8. Monkey
9. (missing link)
10. Australopithecus
11. Homo supposedly sapiens
12. Homo sapiens sapiensis
13. Homo sapiens sapiensis who sapiens there are things he does not sapiensis
14. Homo sapiens sapiensis who sapiens there are things he does not sapiensis and who sapiens there are unsapienable things too, which means there are some things the homo sapiens does not sapiensis
15. Donald Rumsfeld

well, wasn't Donald Rumsfeld the author of that meaningless (and long) diatribe "reports that say something hasn't happened are always interesting to me because as we know there are things we know we know, there are also things we know we don't know that is to say we know there are things we know unknown [...]" about the WMDs in Iraq ?

I hope I'm not mistaken

Yes, but Dubya appointed Donald Doublespeak as his defense secretary. Would that move not put him one notch higher on the deevolution scale?

I have that on my forums. It's quite good. But it encourages people to spam to get up higher.

You could just have 'levels'

I.e. 1 post - level 1
5 posts - level 2
25 posts - level 3


and so on. But that can be a bit boring. But it is useful if you have smething to theme it on.

Perhaps we should just drop the whole idea. The problem is that a function based only on posts which, will include all the totally useless posts (like a few of the above ), may encourage some people to spam.

My only suggestion, which it seems is not possible, is to base rank only on number of days since registering.

doesnt seem like it would be that difficult to modify the php.

of course, some people say im a little too optimistic.

A title shouldn't really be necessary if you can see what someone's post count is. A low post count means they haven't been here long or don't post very often. A high post count means they have been here a long time or like to spam the forum.

Having titles just encourages people to keep posting useless crap so they can "upgrade" to a higher title.

IMHO titles aren't needed.
