It depends on the numbers we're talking about. If we were to tweak what we currently have (so the final rank would require 200,000 posts), I'd consider that to be overkill. All that you'd be doing is making the upper tier of ranks next to impossible for most people to reach, even for those who are fairly active in Spamville. That would make the whole arrangement pointless, since, in particular, it blatantly ignores the people who make productive posts, which the ranks should truly be for.

If the highest rank was 10,000 or 20,000, I'd be fine with that. So long as posts are only counted in every forum but Spamville. All that you'd have to do is add up all of your posts from the other forums, and that would become your post count. I don't think I have even a thousand posts outside of Spamville. (Which is funny, since it's the complete opposite for me over at MSF, where the vast majority of my posts are outside of the Muffin room.)

I like the way the system works now. I really didn't like the fact that posts in the Muffin Room didn't count. That was really annoying not just for me but some others because I used to be fairly active in the games room and Muffin Room at one time. Now I am lucky to post anywhere on MSF.

I made it so posts in the Muffin room didn't increase the post count as an incentive for those who raise it for superficial reasons to do something productive in order to raise their post count. (Although I think Xia made it so posts count, again. For all the good that will do.) After all, MSF has a purpose outside of the community and goofing around. I guess I care more about the site than most others do. But that's neither here nor there. I figured I should take the opportunity to respond to that, since it was brought up.

Post counts raise in the Muffin Room now, but not in the games room.

What about an incentive for those of us who don't visit Spamville? It'll take forever for someone like me to raise ranks. :P
(Not that I'm really concerned with the ranks, of course. :))

If I understand that right, shouldn't it be the other way around? XD

The reaction when a fellow user notices an aberration of your own design: priceless. :P

C'mon, I can't be the ONLY one who's not visiting Spamville, right?




Right?

No you aren't the only one. There are hundreds of people who don't even really lurk even though they signed up that don't ever post in Spamville.

I joined a little more than three and a half years ago and was absent for quite a while. I think it was something like two weeks it took me to finally make it to 1000 I believe anyway.
