Hello there . As you can probably deduce from the title, I would like to suggest that the "Citizen +" group/rank be returned. Here are the following reasons: Encourages users to post in the forums thus enriching the community with different types of discussions. If this is to be re-implemented, the activity on the forums will vastly improve many aspects including the financial problems that the server I believe is currently suffering from. (As indicated on some posts made by Jamie.). SEO. The further activity on the forums will rank the server up on the search engines (Most importantly Google.) due to the increase of content that would be displayed if this is to be re-implemented. This will then increase the number of guests and tourists the servers receive. This will keep the members that are currently dedicated to the forum and the servers content thus resulting in them staying on the server and not leaving. However, I believe there was a reason (reasons) for this group/rank to be removed. I believe it was because of the amount of spam/random posts made in topics so users can purposely increase their post-count. @Peter has once mentioned in a : "The higher we raise the post requirement, the more a user will post and its not always necessarily "crap", I've seen a lot of quality posts by one particular user, but that's just one so we still have the crap factor. As for spam, when a post is deleted, the post count does not actually decrease so we may have to go into the admin panel and alter the post count value from there, but that's a bit drastic. However, if there was an option to decrease the post count before the post is deleted, say for example a spam option (decreases post count) and a normal delete then that could work easier for staff." I am wondering if what he has stated above could still be implemented. That way staff can take down the unnecessary "spam" posts made to increase a post-count and still keep this rank. As for the post requirement, I believe it should be 150 posts as it was once made. However, a high post-count (In my opinion) isn't the only that displays the activity of the I member. That's why I think that people chosen to be Citizen + should be picked by staff. A person worthy of this rank should be a person with: A high Post-Count. Votes for the server thus displaying dedication. ^ For this reason I believe this should be cancelled then. The amount of time he is seen on the servers. Shows activity on the TS3 (TeamSpeak) server! You might be asking why I am suggesting this. TeamSpeak is a great way for a community to simple communicate. So, people that are active there display dedication to the community. Join date. I believe 2-3 months is enough (In my opinion). Keep in mind that I am not mentioning this so I CAN get citizen +. I am simply stating it as it can speed up the activity. As most people know, JR's activity has been quite slow lately. As a result, I believe that this rank is good to facilitate the activity and help JR continue to grow.
