I just don't see the point of mimicking other sites.
EWN is unique from other sites and hence should remain so, set apart from the ordinary run of the mill wrestling site. The point here is that it doesn't matter if the rankings are changed or not, some members are still going to bitch, cry and moan and still be offended or butt-hurt over it.
Personally I joined because of the articles and the quality of posts and blogs of some certain members and thought I had found a home here at EWN. I could care less about a ranking as it doesn't promote anything positive anyway, just a persons post count. Is that really all that matters? A persons post count? Whoopee ding dong do, how superficial we have become.
The only real way to make everyone happy is to let each member choose their own ranking. Mine would probably be "Old perverted grumpy bastard" or something to that effect.
How would the site be then? Would it really change anything about the quality of posts being given? I think not, but then again I've been wrong before.
