How do I attain a new rank?

I'm making posts. Why isn't my post count going up?
There are sections of the forum where posts do not count towards your total. These are:

Konoha Times
Academy Registration
The Konoha Lounge
The Blender
The Konoha Arcade
The Pachinko Parlour
The Staff Conference Room
Rules and Frequently Asked Questions

Additionally, the Konoha Landfill also has disabled postcount.

My post count's gone down. Why?
If you've made posts in a section of the forum which has postcount enabled, your count will go up. If the thread you've posted in is then moved to the Landfill, your posts will go back down again. Additionally, if one of your posts has been deleted by a forum moderator, that post will no longer count towards your total. This would include all post count from Conversation Threads because they are archived in the Landfill at roughly 2000 posts.

Who are the forum Moderators, Administrators, and notable persons?
You can look up all the forum leaders under the
forum leaders listing.

Under the Moderators tab, you'll find the persons tasked with maintaining specific forums. If you have a question pertaining to a certain forum, PMing the moderator in charge of it would be the best course of action. Moderators have specific powers only under their own section. They can move, trash, delete, merge, close and open, moderate (make it so that a thread would have to be approved before viewing, that way only moderators can see them), and sticky threads in their section. They can also edit thread titles, change/remove/add poll options, and with a bit of work, add a poll. They can make announcements and prune a subsection. They also can do IP searches.

Under the Super Moderators tab you'll find the Super Moderators - moderators with knowledge of the entire forum and the ability to moderate any part of it. If you want to report something inappropriate that requires editing/removal, or have a question about the forum in general, asking them would be your best bet. Super Moderators have all the power of Moderators, just over all sub-forums. They also have the power to enable/disable/edit avatars and signatures, execute forum-wide/section bans and unbans, perform reputation seals, view incoming reputation, and do hard deletion (soft deleting is what mods do, in which you can see the "this thread/post" is deleted. Hard deleting removes it entirely and you can never get it back).

Under the Administrators tab, you'll find the persons in charge of running the inner workings of the forum. If you have a question, the Administrators are probably not the best persons to ask - although we'll try to help, we're generally somewhat busy and may take some time to respond. Administrators have everything the Super Moderators have. They have the power to create usergroups and move members into their respective usergroups (some moderators are also granted power over usergroup changing like the Bathhouse usergroup and senior membership). They have the power to remove polls in threads. They can change the number of reputation points and posts you have, along with changing anything else in your profile - check all incoming and outgoing reputation, create and manipulate sub-forums, change usernames, change username colors via usergroups (or manipulate however they want - flashing, sparkles, etc), section ban and unban, IP ban, upload icons and emotes, change sub-forum descriptions, change what the reputation ranks say, change post ranks, and promote members to staff.

Members with a Dark Red user name are Forum Advisors. These are retired staff members who still wish to help out with forum policies or staff taking a break from regular duties. They do not have any actual powers, however. Please contact a regular Moderator if you need help.
