After the recent release of Halo Reach, I felt that I needed to create a forum based on Bungie's Halo. I've been successful with this aim.

I've created a custom theme from scratch, using the buttons Simplacement from ShopMyBB.

On Halo Gear, there is a ranking system. It is based on Halo Reach's ranks, using post count. The higher the post count, the higher the rank is.

If you are a Halo fan, come check out Halo Gear here.

This is the second forum under GearsNET.
What are you offering to differentiate yourself from the multitudes of Halo forums that already exist?
Site seems really slow.
Your background image is gigantic.
The site loads fast for me. :s

I'm working on the background. The forum has a rank system which I haven't seen on any MyBB Halo forum, I find it very intuitive.

Thank you. We've been open for only 12 hours and we've gotten over 420 posts!
A rank system for posting does not seem to be a very compelling feature ... is there anything I can do with this rank? Can I buy something or what? Don't you worry that ranking for post number instead of quality could lead to issues?

No since ranks only show off, it does not offer any other advantages. It's the same with stars, nothing different. More post = more stars.
