JoinSquad Ranks Explained
Updated: 28th Apr 2021
One of the newest changes with the return of the JoinSquad forums is Ranks. Ranks help to distinguish the most prominent and frequent members of the forums who regularly engage in or create discussions, but they also come with some editing functions. See below for a full list of Ranks, the points required to reach them, and what they unlock.
Basic Permissions will prevent members from initially posting links, starting polls, or using the signature feature, once forum members gain Standard Permissions these features will be enabled for you.
- Civilian - Basic Permissions: 0 points required
- Cadet - Basic Permissions: 5 points required
- Lieutenant - Standard Permissions + Authors may edit for 15 minutes: 10 points required
- Captain - Standard Permissions + Authors may edit for 1 hour: 100 points required
- Colonel - Standard Permissions + Authors may edit for 1 hour: 500 points required
- General - Standard Permissions + Authors may edit for 24 hours: 1000 points required
There are several ways to earn points throughout the JoinSquad forums, which are required for you to rank up, here are several ways to earn these points:
- It is possible for Moderators to 'Promote' your post, this will award the post and the poster 5 points.
- Marking a post with the 'Insightful', 'Like', 'Agree' and 'Awesome' reactions will award the post and the poster 1 point.
- Reacting with a 'LOL' will award the post 1 point
As time goes on, we'll be bringing in new features, changes, and ways to earn points that are linked to your Rank which is why we've left a bit of "wriggle-room" as we explore these ideas.
