Maybe the Moderators can give awards to people when they pass certain posting landmarks. Maybe it can be some sort of special small image for whatever the occasion is. There can be the usual number landmarks (250, 500, 1000, etc.). You can also have other ones as well, such as "Person who Passed Up Ross" landmark. :-)
Will a :D do?

Congrats on your posting by the way.

Some boards use a small graphic such as stars or pips to indicate posting rank, special status, or whatever.

Example:
  • New Member
    10 posts
    *

    Nostradamus
    600 posts
    ***

    Candygirl
    99,567,587,345,265,113,778 posts
    ************************
Other than that, you can only measure yourself against the impossibly high standard set by Candygirl and take comfort in the futility of ever catching up to her.

As Candygirl already wrote: the postings ranks ("Tino", "Newbie", "Angela's best friend" ...) are already some kind of "award". I don't want to add more of this stuff because it will lead sooner or later to users just posting nonsense to increase their post count.

That's true.

Are the rank levels and respective post numbers somewhere on the site? I looked through the FAQ and tried to search for it, but to no avail. Maybe I missed it? Or, something to add to the FAQ? Or would this add to the "Frivolous Posting" possibility?

Blink and you would've missed it, but Fnordboy just passed Jason R for the #2 spot behind Candygirl. Hey, that reminds me of an old trick for running laps at school: Just hold your position behind a hottie, and you can keep going for miles!

:shock:

You could have sex with me if you really want to help...I guess that's a "no"?
