      One of the enhancements I am making is for the rankings. the message board keeps track of how many postings you have made and assigns you a rank accordingly:

      0-24 posts = Newbie (0 hearts)
      25-99 posts = Junior Contributor (1 heart)
      100-249 posts = Contributor (2 hearts)
      250-499 posts = Major Contributor (3 hearts)
      500-999 posts = Super Contributor (4 hearts)
      1000+ posts = Essential Contributor (5 hearts)

      Let me know what you think of the rankings ... they can easily be changed if desired.
      I have changed Newbie to be Contributor-in-Training to be consistant with the other rankings.
      Thanks, Tim
