I will post what I usually post when people ask about extremely detailed forum rank information (e.g., structure and order):

 

The rank structure in the PlayStation Community Forums is for you to discover through your continued participation in these forums and not something to be known in advance. What fun would it be to know the ranks in a forum or their requirements before posting in it for a while? 

 

I wouldn’t mind giving you some information about some of the special forum ranks that you might stumble across in the forums but this thread goes far beyond that. You are essentially spoiling the experience of ranking up here for other people and this is rather disappointing (to say the least).

I agree, but if you would not like to know the ranks. Just simply do not look at the thread. Smiley Happy

 

Will put everything in a spoiler for you.

Did something change? Back years ago, someone "spoiling" the ranks would have his/her thread removed and account banned if I remember right. I just didn't see a "rank list" like this on the forums... Like... Ever.

(Exception is before the Lithium-Jive switchover, where a mod posted the rank list because it is going to get removed. Every rank had different colors back then.)

 

There is a lot of truth to this so I don’t know what will happen to this thread. In general, people should not be trying to spoil the forum rank structure for others. There are reasons why there are no detailed FAQs about how to rank up in the forums or the order of this forum’s current rank structure.

Posting about forum rank structures that are no longer in operation is a bit different than posting ones that are...

was just reading and i have to agree with afew people, and from what ive been told by those i will not name that the ranks of forum are strictly NON public, spoiler or not they are not to be posted for public view, as well while i am an artistic person i dont believe these, randomly special ranks for very unique 1 thread events are necassary and just deminish the set ranks for forums, all the game specific ranks can stay with the game they associate with while in general forums it would be wise to show the generic set made by forum developers.. on a side not reason i would like to see these uniquely special ranks removed because some (not all) have themselves given the rank just so they have it, not because of some specific thread, yes they post in the thread but certainly do not act the part.. example being in the "Welcome Commitee" thread and being part of the group may get u the rank being unwelcoming to those whos ideas dnt agree with yours is.. well obvious that said person isnt at all welcoming, as well the "Gold Trophy Hunting" rank is too braod yea kk so we all have gold trophies so everyone should have the rank.. well no that rank is quite useless cuz it wouldnt divide people by their participation.. plat trophy hunter would be abit more..defined and meaningful...

First, please separate your wall of text into paragraphs so it'll be easier for everyone else to read and understand your points 

 

Second, you don't understand where the Gold Trophy Hunter rank comes from and how you get it. Read this and learn what the rank is for before you call it useless.

Here is a list of all the Forum Ranks I could find Smiley Happy 

     If you know of any or can find some more delicious ranks please inform!

 

 

How can you obtain some of these ranks? The first set are the shields. Those can be obtained by anyone and everyone from post count, amount of kudos earned, and things in that nature.

 

The second set is for moderators and developers. Those can only be obtained by special god-like individuals Smiley Tongue

 

The third set are special ranks given to a select number of people and sometimes only one person at a time through contests or certain community programs. Smiley Surprised

 

 

MVP & Welcoming Committe are given to those who are in the particular program.
