Ranks are a way to encourage members to be more active on PaperDemon. Whenever you post a comment on art, writing, or a comic, or make a post in the forums, you gain a point. Points are then used to determine your rank. For a full list of ranks, check out the ranks spreadsheet
You have to log out of your account and log back in to refresh your ranking. We will improve this soon.
We plan to improve ranks over time and allow you to gain points for other activities. Please let us know what you think about the ranking system by replying to the Ranks news announcement.
