I’ve searched the docs and these forums, and I understand how to use the Forum Ranks feature to automatically assign a badge (or usergroup) to any member once they have reached a minimum number of forum posts required for that rank. Great feature!

I wonder however: Is there a way to assign a maximum number of posts instead? Or perhaps someone can suggest another way to what I am attempting here…

I want to assign a badge for a Forum Rank titled “New Member”. I then want this badge to disappear once the user has posted x number of times.

For example, a new user joins and the New Member badge will appear under their avatar. (No need to auto-assign any usergroup, just show the badge.) After that user has posted 5 times (new topics or posts/replies), the badge then disappears.

Am I missing a simple way to do this?

Hi:

Maybe the thing to do here would be to assign the badge with a postcount of zero and above.  Then assign another badge for 25 posts and above but set that badge to an invisible image that is 1×1 pixel in size?  This might get you close to what you’re looking for.  I haven’t tried it myself but its the first thing that comes to mind.

Thanks.

I figured that might work, but just wondered if I was missing some other way to avoid creating the second rank.

I was able to assign one rank with a postcount of 0 and “New Member” Badge, then create a second rank for “Members” with postcount of 3 leaving the badge option blank. No need to assign the 1×1 pixel image as a badge.

Thanks!
