    This idea is based off of a suggestion originally made by @Hangar555 but it had some flaws which even be didn't like. So Im suggesting my tale on veteran rank.

    How to get it:
    Have every single trophy unlocked on the forums. - I think this is very reasonable as people cannot just spam the forums to get the rank and need 500 likes and 1000 messages.
    Be on the forums for 6 months - 1 year

    What would it do?:
    -Possibly have a tag
    -Reduced message cool to 30 seconds - 30 seconds is still long enough to prevent spam and with the content these veterans are putting out it most likely wont be plain spam.
    -Bragging rights - you get to be a forums no life :D

    I think hangar's idea could be cool with these changes.:p

    It's been suggested so many times, I just don't see anyone implementing this anytime soon. Although it would be nice for us senior users to get recognition, I think staff have enough on their hands at the moment. Maybe some time in the future.

    Since that's becoming easier and easier to do, how about add that they need to have been a member of the forums for over a year?

    But that would exclude me from getting it any time soon :p Although that would make more sense with the veteran name...

    Is this really that necessary? I like the idea but wouldn't people know that we are like veterans by just looking at our messages and likes?

    I would appreciate the reduced messages timer. Also I would with that you could have different timers for profile messages and messages on the forums.

    Maybe a little badge icon under your forums username and the member tag showing you're a Veteran user?

    It is pretty decent and fool proof but people can create alt accounts and create random spam posts and like them with their alts to get this rank, which in turn leads to even more spam. I don't really see the point of this rank though, staff members are there for a reason.

    I think a spam account would be discorvered before reaching 1000 messages :p

    I think it's a good idea, i know that lots of people have been on the server for a very long time, and they should have some way of showing that :-D

    Its great idea!
    I think the tag should be implemented as changing the color of your name on your profile to a different shade of Grey and changing "Member", to "Well-Known Member".
