The Like system saves many thank you and "+1" posts and gives posters some sort of feedback. I like it.
But the ranking system is a bit inappropriate. Royalty is not democratic, and the titles can be scary to newbies.
I would change ranks to "insulting" but actually honorable titles, "community servant", "tree hugger" and so on. But I think "lurker" for long-time members who post little, and "newbie" for those newly-registered, are informative and should stay.

Nice one oren.
To add?: "extinction rebel",  "carbon footprint trasher" and "kind frugalist".

Or we could just ignore it. There current ones don't distract me. Basically they are just ranks of numbers of posts.

I really don't like the more colourful ones. They can be true or not while we all know we are not kings or citizins. Basically the only time i looked at it was in the beginning to check if i still rated as a newbie.

I occasionally wander backwards through time to see what was hot on the ASIF years ago.

I found a poll in 2013 - When will the Forum Reach 1 million Page Views?

As I write this the Page Views are :- 89,920,863. Did you imagine when you started the ASIF that....

A poll, Neven ? When will Page Views reach 100 million?

No, I just wanted a decoy for the ASIB comment section.  ;D
