You're the benchmark, Al. The post count for CBN will climb as the other post counts get adjusted. We're working on something other than stars for the rank, though.

A little history for those who don't remember. Jeff actually started the Certified Bonneville Nut thingy as a joke one night (due to my post-whoring) when I was at 911 posts. That was in 1953, I think. The Rat was right on my heels. It was a neck and neck race for awhile.

It wasn't until a couple months ago that Hector and I readjusted the counts, and CBN went to 1000. I actually had it set earlier today at 1500, but figured we'd leave it within reach for the time being. The day will come when that rank is may be in the 5000 range

And you are almost there....5000....where will BC be in 3 years from now as some of the old school members bust it 5000 posts and 5000 members

We'll have to create new rankings

Good times, lets enjoy the new changes

Ah yes Will! The good ole days, when we use to post just about anything to get our post count up! Back then every section'* posts counted, even the test section too.! Well now we are wiser & some sections don't count towards the post counts either. I guess I can live with the present rank status preset for us "Old Timers"

Hey Buick, you've got some posting to do to match your drivetrain with your rank!
