Legend, formerly known as "Rank X," was the 11th and last rank on the old LEGO Message Boards. The rank was reached when a user attained 24,065 posts. Legends had either 7 or 8 studs. Fourteen users had reached this rank before the update. These users now have a Legend badge on their profile pages to signify their old rank. They are ordered by post count as of before the update:
8ObiWan88 was the fastest user to achieve rank Legend, setting the record for the shortest period of time: from November 2011 to May 2012 - just six months.
Skulduggery77 took 8 months to reach Legend, and got Artisan less than 4 months before getting it.
Lego.minifig set the record for the first female user to get Legend.
So far some of these users have been considered "True Legends" if they have done something to "change" the MBs, an idea strongly expressed by Alemas.
Diglett809 was the last Legend.
Rock-o-Ages was the first Legend.
It seemed when Legend came out, the rank image was huge. It was bigger than all the other ranks, but a few days later it was re-sized and has stayed that way ever since. This was because the rank was added because users were getting posts counts higher than the requirements for Maniac.
Because it took so long to get to Legend, many members planned to retire after achieving the rank. One was Eragon3443; although he came back, but is now inactive.
Some believed there was a rank after Legend called "Rank Y," but others believed it just continued on forever. However, the moderators had said that there is no Rank Y, and this was proven when Marcel77799 reached the post count hypothetically required.
Some users confuse "Legend" (the rank) with MB Legends as those who areconsidered True Legends.
All Legends had 8 studs except for Genralaustin, Cr9, Wertys761, and Diglett809.
