    I just realized I have this weird sounding ranking.

    Googled it:

    Etymology[edit]
    From maha (“supreme”) +‎ guru (“teacher”), from Sanskrit महागुरु (mahāguru).​

    I'm impressed !
    Thanks forum for calling me Supreme Teacher :D

    What did I do to deserve such majestic ranking ?
    Also... who else around here is Maha ?

    You were awarded that rank with IIRC 750 or 850 posts.

    Next one is Ancient for 2750 I think.

    Then some people have special titles, these are handpicked and -crafted like some mods are "Don ..." etc.

    There's a promotion title ladder based on your post count:

    New Member - 0
    Member - 10
    Active Member - 50
    Member Guru - 100
    Master Guru - 200
    Maha Guru - 1000
    Ancient Guru - 1500

    I'll hand out a personal promotion title for "the one" that beats my post count ;)

    Not possible, system would ban us automatically for botting.

    Didn't the Ancient Guru post count used to be higher?

    Not that it matters... *disgruntled muttering* :p

    Ah, Ancient is above Maha...
    That explains it.

    Well, here's one more post towards those 1500 ;)

    I find it strange thought that something that means Supreme is actually 2nd place...

    https://www.dictionary.com/browse/supreme
    adjective
    highest in rank or authority; paramount; sovereign; chief.

    ... and not get banned? Never.
    You'll always be #1 :p

    ---
    And since this is the pub, here's some stupid ideas:

    Ultra Guru - 2500
    M-M-M-Monster Guru - 4000
    Ludicrous Guru - 6000
    It's over 9000 ! - 9000
    ... duh !

    ranking should be based on likes and not post count.

    After what you told me about spam; the system and such I think we'd get flagged hehe. Like what @Fox2232 said
    We have a comedian amongst us :cool:
    Holy cow man, did you hire a team of "likers" ?
