Again, another poster that does not realize the cross posting that goes on here in Stardokia.
No offense to OP, i am just furthering a point about the need for member banners to signify their native sites.
See i am reading this in the Off Topic forum on GC2.com. Many may not even know that blogs = threads, unless you have visited Impulse-Driven.
And the rankings do not carry from one site to another.
I am a Veteran (Apprentice2) on GC2.com but that rank is reduced to citizen if i step out from there and visit Wincustomize.com, SINS...etc.
Myself along with Zyx above have been crusading for the need of some kind of banner, much like Zubaz's SD banner to denote the users who is posting's native site.
Also we are vocal about having ranks and such be uniform across all SD sites.
Until then, this thread will have many varied responses all of which will appear only to be correct from that posters native site.
For me, based on my default site of GalCiv2.com.
Forum Rank = Apprentice (2)
Community Rank = 108
Blog rank = 41
I'm not sure if you have to have a blog or not because blogs get their own ranking.
You don't need a blog, as per what the word's meaning suggests. Your thread posts are seen by Impulse-Driven as blogs. I only have ever made one "blog" in impulse-driven just to try out features. All my stats are based on my OP's and replies across various SD sites, but all viewed from GalCiv2.com.
What a tangled web it is.....
