Multiple "post count" ranks

Is there some MOD or workaround way to implement multiple "post count" ranks?
For example, in my forum I want three different ranks, based in number of posts, using ranks of Army, Navy and Air Force. Is that possible? Even if I have to manually add a user to a Group (Army Group, Navy Group, Air Force Group) so he will get the specific rank when get to a x number of posts? Will be better if the user can choose which Group he wants when register, but I can live with me having to change it manually...
Or a post count based rank is only possible to the "normal" user Group, meaning I only can have one?

Just to be clear, I know abou the special ranks, but I want something like described, based on post counts/group so I don't have to manually "hunt" every single user, see if it has enough posts and change his rank....

Multi-Race Rank Themes where your races would be Army, Navy or Air Force.

wait, isn't that the way the normal ranks already work.

you set army rank with a needed post count of 10 . navy rank with a post count of 20 etc.


somebody gets ten posts, they get the rank of army.
once they get 20 posts, they leave the army and get the rank of navy, etc.

if you have associated an image with each rank they will also get that image when they reach the correct number of posts.


groups don't have to have anything to do with it unless you just want them to.

I think the OP is looking for something like this

Code: Select all

+-------+--------------------+----------------------+-----------------+
| Posts | Army               | Navy                 | Air Force       |
+-------+--------------------+----------------------+-----------------+
| 100   | Major              | Lieutenant commander | Squadron leader |
+-------+--------------------+----------------------+-----------------+
| 200   | Lieutenant colonel | Commander            | Wing commander  |
+-------+--------------------+----------------------+-----------------+
| 300   | Colonel            | Captain              | Group captain   |
+-------+--------------------+----------------------+-----------------+
So, if you are in the army group and have 150 posts you would have the rank of Major, but if air force group you would be Squadron leader.

The MOD I suggested doesn't do it based on group but users can select which "race" of ranks they want.

Yes, I'm looking for something like Oyabun1 stated, sorry if it wasn't very clear in the OP.
Don't had time to try it yet, will take the weekend to see if I can get things working.
Thx again to you all, people!
