Default New Rank vs. Star Proposal

Some of the Admins/Mods have been discussing (offline) a new ranking structure to account for our growing membership and soaring post counts. Here'* what we've come up with so far (the half stars are to fill in the large gaps so people feel 'rewarded' more often). Tell us what you think:

New Member - no star
Member - half star
LE Member - one star
SE Member - one and a half stars
SSE Member - two stars
SLE Member - two and a half stars
SSEi Member - three stars
GXP Member - three and a half stars
Posts like an L27 - four stars
Posts like an L36 - four and a half stars
Posts like an L67 - five stars
Certified Bonneville Nut - five or six pistons??? (or the profile of a Bonneville) Maybe blue stars? Ideas?

Post counts will initially be set up somewhere a little smaller in steps between than they are right now, but this would allow room to grow. This is all pending Jeff'* approval, but we wanted a general idea of what people thought.

I think it is a great idea to re-vamp the Rank Status due to the large number of Members & the fact some of us are way past the last Rank Level anyways too.
I would like 6 NOZ Bottles for mine! :
PS: I know Will really wants his to be "Dancing Bananas" anyways!

More reason to be a 'post-*****.'

Hey Drifter, how about: Posts like a 3800" in my pants

Sorry Will, but Drifter started it. I won't say it again
