The intent of the IFSBI Forum Ranks is to recognize individuals within the Independant Flight Simulator Builders International community for their active, consistent and continuous participation in the forum by posting information on topics of flight simulation cockpit building relevant to
• the global advancement and enthusiasm of flight simulation
• raising awareness about the importance of sharing knowledge, ideas and product development
• being a role-model in building practices and emphasize the sharing of best practices

The Forum Ranks are visibly attributed to the user in the forum properties and can be viewed within each posting by the member. Forum Ranks levels are attained by the number of posts you have made. Please do not abuse the board by posting unnecessarily just to increase your rank - you will probably find the moderator or administrator will simply lower your post count.
