Perhaps the academic system can provide a suggestion for ranking users.
However, quality of post might be an issue. If I'm nothing more that a 'post factory', bombarding forums with rather shady submissions, it certainly can't be as valuable as a quality post. Perhaps a ranking system based on post-or-perish philosophy is in order.:lol:
various ranks would be:
post-doc ( a lowly post-doc)
visiting assist. prof.
I'm sure one can go overboard with such a thing, assuming I haven't already done it.
Bonus points to someone who can derive such a ranking system based on german or russian universities. Privatdozent has a nice ring to it.
