Due to the lack of activity on the forum, we will be changing the post count requirement to be nominated for advanced+!
500 posts was the original, but with the forum the way it is, we are now lowering the post requirement to around 300 posts as a general guideline. Those who have good contributions to the forum, such as guides/programs/ect, will still be allowed to be nominated at less than 300 posts. The 300 posts requirement will the new post count guideline for our users who use the forum in a more general manner.
It's not a "300 posts and you get auto nominated", so there may still be users who have more posts who haven't been nominated yet. 300 is a general guideline.
We still want advanced+ to be a rank that people do have to earn, rather than "make a few posts and you're in" which is why we're keeping the post requirement somewhat high.
The "how to get in adv+ guide" has now been updated to reflect the new changes.
I know some are also wondering about private rank changes since we haven't had private apps in quite some time. We're still working on that as private needs to have a private leader to start the application process each month.
