You can also have a Custom User Title. To do so, just enter the User CP and choose Edit Profile. On the page you'll find this:

Just add what title you want, and next thing you know, it's appearing beneath your name in every post. If you want to go back to the ranks, then just check the 'Reset' box, and save again.

In addition to the User Ranks obtained from posting, there are a few special user ranks that other people may have.

These user ranks are displayed for SPPf staff members. For more information about what specific staff members do, go here

This user rank is used for SerebiiBot, the forum bot. It is used to give new users a welcome PM and perform other automated forum functions.

This user rank is for users who have passed away. Their VM walls are open to the public to pay respects, but any trolling of these profiles will result in an instant ban. If you know a user has passed away and should be switched to this group, PM an admin with proof. Misusing this will also result in an instant ban.

Forums Which Dont Count To PostCount

Although Post Count is not displayed, it still exists. There are some forums however, which will not count your posts. These forums are the ones that get more than the average amount of replies and the count has been removed to prevent people getting high counts quickly.

These forums are:

  • Site Disc
  • Anime Polls
  • R/S/E FAQs
  • R/G/B/Y RMT
  • Stad/Colo RMT
  • Rate My Deck
  • Webmasters & Websites
  • Clubs
  • Games
  • Fanart Requests
  • Programming
  • Misc Polls
  • Pokepolls
  • Faceoffs

Post Count isn't displayed, but there are two ways of finding out how high it is.

  1. Go to your User CP and Edit Profile
  2. Where the Custom User Title option is, check the reset box and Save
  3. Your Title will revert back to the rank.
