I was surprised that EE added to your post count. I've been on many sites where off topic threads did not add to your post count at all.

I know you guys have wanted a new ranking system other than the one we have (shown below) and I would like to make a move on this soon. If someone could give me an estimate on what you think the distribution is (i.e. highest poster has X posts, more than 50% have around X posts, etc.) that would be helpful.

I believe this would work...covers each type of major wx. Most active members will be in the Blizzard-EF5 Tornado categories. The tornado icons would still work.

Big Daddy - 20,000+ posts - 4 or 5 icons, I know there is a limit.
Superstorm - 10,000-20,000 posts - 4 icons.
EF5 Tornado - 5,000-10,000 posts - 3 icopns.
Cat. 5 Hurricane - 2,500-5,000 posts - 2 icons.
Blizzard - 500-2,500 posts - 1 icon.
Whirl Wind - 0-500 posts - no icon.

Hopefully we can make a change sooner rather than later. As things will get a busier for JEsse as Winter approaches.

Discriminating against the other disasters.....Firestorms, Floods, Volcanoes and Tsunami's. While Volcanoes and Tsunami's are geologic in origin...Firestorms are weather driven by drought and winds. Floods are generated either by excessive rain or rapid snow/ice melt.

I looked up the total members and got an estimate of how much users have 1+, 50+ or 500+ posts, and I found the numbers rather surprising. At least 52% of the users have posted 1 or more time, 12% of the users have 50+ posts, and only 3% have 500+ posts. Out of the members that have posted 1 or more time, 24% have 50+ posts, and only 6% have 500+ posts. But what I did notice that leads me to think that we need a new system is that even though only a small percent of the users have 500+ posts, these are the most frequent posters, which is why in almost every thread I look at, almost everyone is rated a "F5 Superstorm".

What I think we need to do is keep the lower 2 categories (whirlwind 0-50, tornado 50-500) the same, but add at least another 3 categories, maybe something like 500-5000, 5000-15000, and 15000+.

Not a mod, but to the first question, we all hope soon.

And to the second: Right now there is no way to donate to accuweather forums. Probably never will be.

It seems like this hasn't changed. I think its just fine the way it is. If members are posting just to increase a post count it turns into tons and tons of extra one word posts or just plain garbage posts. I remember a couple members doing this in the past. Save space and get rid of the tornados all together. Speed up the forums and encourage thoughtful posts.
