On the Message Boards on a Topic/post, it will show some stats including your profile picture (Default Change), Rank, Posts and Yar's.

I was wondering how do you get a different Rank shown? Or does it depend on how many posts or Yar's you have?

Thank you,

great question.. all I know is it depends on ya chattiness, not sure if yars help, or whether posting is different than commenting? I'm terrible at sharing links but there are guides that explain this better as well as asking people like Chrissy the Blesser or Anecrombie(both pirate overlords)might help...

It depends on posts. Don't quote me on this, but I believe after 50 you get moved to Petty Officer (which I believe I have right now). And then it goes from their all the way to things like Champion and Overlord.
Yars does not effect it but it does say how many yars you have, it just doesn't affect that rank.

Your rank depends on the total amount of posts you have. I think it goes by 50s, once you hit 50 posts you'll earn the rank of "petty officer" then at 100 you'll get "lieutenant" (like mine) and so on, and so one.

Ranks are earnt via milestones of how many posts you have posted

You may notice during your next milestone your rank has been promoted...

I actually tried nailing down when a new rank is earned a few months ago. I'm not sure if it's 100% correct, but I can post my findings and see if we can fix it together? Or maybe even One-Eyed Jack can help us correct it. ;)

But yes, rank is based on how many times a user posts. Yars don't affect it at all.

No problem!

Here's a link to the Message Board rank information I compiled: https://www.pirate101.com/forum/a-pirates-life/guide-to-message-board-ranks-8ad6a42459f8f2420159faf3438414e2?page=1
