This has been asked in the past but are there any plans to add a ranking system for gamification? My company would be willing to pay to develop one and can even work with your team on this project.
A User Ranking feature would allow a community-based forums to recognize active Forum contributors... a ranking system that moves a contributor to the next level after he submits a specified number of posts. Here’s an example.
Ranks: Newbie, Intermediate, Expert
Number of posts
> Newbie 0 - 9
> Intermediate10 - 19
> Expert 20 and up
