Points and Rank

Every user is assigned points based on the number of topics, replies, and reviews each has posted. This is based on each user's total posts, usually regardless of whether or not those posts are still available online. There are slightly different weights depending on the type of post:
1 discussion post = 1 point
1 review = 15 points
Each user is also assigned a rank based on his/her points. Rank is little more than a graphical representation of the user's points. There are several levels in the rank:
25 points
50 points
100 points
200 points
400 points
600 points
800 points
1000 points
2000 points
3000 points
4000 points
5000 points
