Relevance of visible member level and member rank of members in the forum threads/responsesRecently, the Webmaster has revamped the forum section of the ISC imparting it a modern impressive look. One of the changes in the format is that in the modern format, the 'Member Level' and 'Member Rank' are not visible openly. The member level can be seen described as 'Level' in the drop down menu below the name of the member along with the additional information like 'Joined' and 'Points'. However, presently the 'Member Rank' is not visible anywhere.
Let us discuss the relevance of visible member level and member rank of members in the forum threads/responses. Some of the points worth consideration in this regard may be as follows -
1. Were the members using such data to flaunt their status in the past ?
2. Is it impolite and inappropriate to display such data?
3. Is such data irrelevant and only the quality of post matters?
