To whom it may concern,
 
I'm writing to propose a revision to the current forum post requirement for attaining veteran rank. Specifically, I suggest lowering the threshold from 250 to 150 posts.
 
Given the recent lull in forum activity, particularly noticeable for members like myself who joined in 2018, reaching the current 250-post goal has become a considerable challenge. The forum seems less active recently, making it harder for members to accumulate the necessary posts. Reducing the requirement to 150 posts would not only make the process more manageable during these quieter times but also provide an achievable target for consistent participation.
 
I hope you will consider this adjustment, as it could promote increased engagement among members and make the veteran rank more accessible, even during periods of reduced forum activity. I welcome any feedback or discussion on this proposal.
 
Thank you for your time and consideration.
 
Sincerely,
Chris

In the ever-evolving landscape of online gaming communities, Alora has stood the test of time as a haven for RuneScape enthusiasts. One aspect that has contributed to the unique charm of Alora is the system of ranks, rewarding players for their contributions. Among these ranks, the coveted Veteran Rank holds a special place, symbolizing dedication and longevity within the community.
 
One of the criteria for attaining the esteemed Veteran Rank on Alora is a specified number of forum posts. This requirement serves as a testament to a player's active involvement in the broader community discussions and a commitment to fostering a positive atmosphere within the forums. It not only reflects the player's dedication but also encourages meaningful interactions and engagement beyond the game itself.
 
Changing the forum post requirement for Veteran Rank may be a tempting idea to adapt to the evolving trends of online gaming communities. However, it is crucial to consider the essence of Alora and what makes it a unique and enduring community. The current system has been in place for a reason – to honor and celebrate the longstanding commitment of players who actively participate in the community dialogue.
 
The forum post requirement serves as a mechanism to foster community engagement, encouraging players to share their insights, experiences, and knowledge. This not only enriches the overall community experience but also creates a vibrant and dynamic space for discussions. By maintaining this requirement, we ensure that Alora remains a place where players not only play the game but also actively contribute to the growth and development of the community.
 
Veteran Rank, with its forum post requirement, serves as a symbol of respect within the community. Players who achieve this rank have demonstrated a commitment to contributing meaningfully to discussions, helping others, and sharing their expertise. Changing this requirement might dilute the significance of the rank, potentially leading to a decline in the quality and substance of forum interactions.
 
In conclusion, the forum post requirement for Veteran Rank on Alora is more than just a numerical threshold; it is a reflection of the community's values and the essence that has made Alora a thriving and enduring space for RuneScape enthusiasts. Rather than succumbing to the pressure to adapt to changing norms, let us cherish and preserve the traditions that make Alora a unique and cherished community in the realm of online gaming.

I value your thorough explanation and share your perspective. The crux of the matter lies in the perceived inactivity of the forums, and diminishing the significance of forum engagement doesn't seem to have an impact on the standing of both current and prospective veterans. Upon reviewing your profile, it's evident that you joined Alora in 2020, actively participated in the forums, and earned the veteran rank. It appears unjust that despite joining two years earlier, my lack of forum activity prevents me from attaining the rank, despite fulfilling all other requirements. The decline in forum activity adds an extra layer of difficulty in meeting the necessary post count. Your candid opinion is appreciated, and I'm curious to hear other responses to this post as well.

Dear Chris,

 

I established my account in 2020 but only began actively playing in March 2022. I attained veteran rank in January 2023. During that time, forum activity was minimal as it is now, with the exception of @Selenagomez consistently spamming weird suggestions.

i think @Lucas explained it well enought. veteran is a great rank to reach on alora and it mean alot. 

 

yes i can understand that working on those forum posts is quite a bit hard, i had problem reaching the post count to at that time.

but once you will make it there, you will be very happy and proud of it. you dont want to make all the hard work you made, be easier for new comer because you do deserve all the time you invested for it.

my tips for you : make sure to comment on weekdays/weekends events, join the events
and be active on all the topic you can will get you alot of posts in no time  :)

good luck on veteran rank!

As all said above, there's a reason why there's a requirement. Especially with Alora going into it's 7th year - the account age requirement doesn't even seem that great now compared to what it was a few years ago.

 

Post count isn't just from replying to threads, its about engaging with the community. If you're struggling there are easy cop-outs like comments on the event pages/updates etc. 

Commenting and engaging with new people in Introductions is another good option, or if you really what to input into the community - update a lot of the out of date guides.

No Support, it's not hard to get 250 posts on the forums

There is no need to change the requirement in my opinion!

I would definitely agree with this, since forums are not so active to gain post count and if you do try to gain that, it feels like spamming.

I understand the frustration of what looks like a lull in the forums. But with the veteran rank accordingly it shows even more now more than ever that to make the rank you have to be active for a while to get there which to me makes it feel that when I get there I’ll feel the accomplishment perhaps more than I would of.

I support this suggestion; It made sense back in the day when there was actual activity on the forums.
Now you either have to somewhat spam or shit post to get to the PC requirement.

At the very least, remove the PC requirement if you have it on at least one account.

I think lowering it to 150 or 200 is a fine middle ground - the forums are an important part of Alora's community but they are much less active than in the early days when Vet rank was established.
