Well collision, maybe calling someone a noob is not in the right context here. What is the point of drifting off the topic to purposely put someone down. Trust me, he's not a noob by any chance. The ignorant people who say these things usually end up being the person who is what you call a "noob".
Okey... um ranking system is easy, you get .5 points for a post, 25 for an upload and 10 for making a forum thread in you studio.
It goes like this u need 500 to get to intermidate level, then 1000 to expert which is I am now, then next level is advanced, hell if i know how many points u need.
