For information about ranks from the Old LEGO Message Boards, please look here
The new LEGO Message Board ranks are based on post quality, not quantity, and there are a total of at least 27. It is not yet known how to achieve a rank, but is thought to involve having your posts liked and liking other posts. According to the mods, they show not only what quality poster you are, but also your general activity on the MBs. All of the names of the ranks are known, but the order and number of each rank is not yet known. Posters start out with "No Rank" before moving up to Caveman, then Pharaoh, etc. All are based on the LEGO Minifigures Series with the exception of the Jester. There is a theory that the ranks are in chronological order, as would be assumed by seeing how Caveman comes first, then Pharaoh, then Spartan Warrior, etc. These are the known ranks, in order:
The other known ranks, in alphabetical order:
There are also a few known other ranks that do not have icons (unless added in the future) that are given to users who read and like posts, but never make any posts. Here is a list of known other ranks:
- Apprentice Reader (Obtained by not posting at all, but liking one post.)
- Master Reader (Obtained by not posting at all, but liking 400 posts.)
- Official (Rank given to LEGO employees)
So far, those are all of the other ranks users can get if they do not post. These are the only ranks possible to avoid. There are likely more of them, achieved after liking a larger amount of posts. There is officially one last reader rank.
