hey everyone, I've been using this website for about a year now, and I've never really paid attention to rankings people get. as you can see, i'm a Correspondent. some people are "new user", "Contributor", "Frequent Contributor", "Distinguished Correspondent", etc...... what does these rankings mean? its weird, but kind of cool at the same time. i looked up mine, and a correspondent is a person who communicates by letters.

These rankings don't really mean anything they are just a way to give some users a higher rank because they have received more laurels on their posts. This is basically like Kudos on a good post that you can give people by clicking on the green leaf below a persons icon. It is just fun to get higher and higher rankings, plus I believe once you have reached a certain rank you can give more than just one laurel to a post you really like. for example I believe some really high ranking people can give up to 3 laurels to one person's post.
