I agree, Steve. The request isn't for me, or you. It is requested so that IF someone wants to know someone else's rank, which happens a lot, they could easily know.
Hell, if we hide the rankings, no one would know about them and no one would aspire to be promoted, etc, etc, so on and so forth.
It is a needed thing, even if some don't think they need it.
This thread isn't about me wanting MY rank to be shown. It's about me, or someone else, wanting a way to know what someone else's rank is. If they don't have a site, you don't know their rank.
Suppose I want to get back into skinner spotlights. I'd need to know a person's rank.
PM them and ask them, you might say?
Well, we all know PMs go weeks waiting to be read.
Again, it is needed by some. Maybe not by you.
