My guild has a ranking system based on a persons forum activity at the website. Because we are a website based gaming community all of our ranks are determined by website activity. Changing all my members ranks manually consumes a lot of time especially when the guild peeks its membership now and then. Back when I first brought my guild to guild portal, before I knew about this community I sent a support ticket suggesting that an option be added that would make it possible to change a persons rank name automatically based on their participation points or raid points and that a guild admin could enter in the rank names and what the required post count was and then when a member hits that participation count it would automatically change their rank name. I am not sure how difficult that would be it was the only feature ezboard had that I liked. Sandy sent me an e-mail saying she thought it sounded like a good ideal and would talk to you about it but I never found out if the ideal was thrown out or just on the list of what seems to be our never ending request pool. I hate making work for people and you guys offer a really good product already so if it is too much trouble just let me know because I know no matter how many members I get I still wont have as much work to do on this website as you guys do. Just a thought...

I have also requested something very similar.  We award medals based on raid points and activity points.  Both are tracked by Guildportal, so I'd like to have medals automatically awarded based on points.  You could do the same thing with a rank symbol.

To give an example, we award one medal at 25 activity points, then a higher version of the medal at 50 points.  So, when the system sees that a member hits 25 points, we'd like medal A awarded.  When the member hits 50, medal A goes away and they get medal B.  Basically, this would be an option in the medals manager.

I wouldn't mind even having to click a button to have the system check points rather than having the system do automatic sweeps.  It wouldn't be hard to click a button once a day.  It IS hard to manually track the points of 130 members regularly.

Becoming Adept!

That does sound like a great idea. And would be very helpful in all manners of being a guild master.

Yeah I miss the ability to control when a you should receive a new rank
dependent on your activity level on the boards.
The way it is now i have no idea when a new lever is reached.
