Because every now and then you get some hot shot newb coming on here and posting a bunch of bad information.
Over the years I have seen many newbies post their way to veteran, professor, or even master in a few months and continue to spout garbage and other newbies who don't know any better, take their bad advice. There needs to be a better way of distinguishing good information from garbage.

It happens, thats how I always viewed it. Unfortunately a rating based system can be easily abused and end up no better.

I may not post a lot, but I do read a lot. I personally like the idea of opening up RunRyder to other forms of R/C. I love my heli's but I also fly giant scale gas planes and even some old glow planes. Even still have an old RC10 or 2. Since RCG/HF/FG has sold out, there's no telling what will even become of them as forums now and will probably become more ad driven and more paid reviews of new releases that never say anything bad about the product from the big hobby outlet that is getting reviewed. I would love to see RR bring other sides of the hobby all into one place. And as for the member ranking/post count tags I don't really see it as even necessary unless the person is a moderator or administrator.

Take off is optional, Landing is mandatory!

Senior Heliman to Apprentice seems like a bit of a demotion. Especially since I'm at 374 on topic posts in 11yrs. I gotta type more.
