I'm not playing some game where I need to constantly know my rank, or how long it will take to get next one. And since opening menu is the only way to see notifications on mobile, having this taking space isn't ideal.

 

I also don't like seeing the amount required to next rank in a place where point farming is overall discouraged.

^^^^ That's my post ^^^^

Yea i thought it was weird why there are ranks now, like what do they even mean?

 

Cause im supposedly a "proficient" but are you sure that determines my post quality over the last 3.84k posts ive made?

I think it only takes into account your post count. Though, I think checking the post count and reputation should be better, but again, that has its own flaws, cuz you can gain rep count by posting in off topic or just memes in your status updates.

I thought posts in Off Topic don't count towards your total post count? Or has that changed. Either way, reputation earned in Off-Topic threads still count as far as I know... and at times it seems specific threads there are reputation farms from the amount of shitposting that goes on. 

 

But back on topic, I agree with removing the rank from the mobile version. Looks out of place and unnecessary.

And i thought sht posting in tech news was already a reputation farm considering that i from time to time just post a joke on there and suddenly theres 69 people that just react to it xD

It shouldn't be removed, but there should be a option to disable it.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.
