Yes, I agree with you that a system like that can be abused to produce ugly results.

But, a way of distinguishing ranks is already present in the current system. Members with more xp's are listed higher up the list than those with fewer xp's. It's a bit like arranging people who otherwise look the same according to their heights, and the heights tell something about their experience or involvement or knowledge or a combination of these.

Has it been abused? I suspect the answer is Yes but only occasionally.

The suggestion of using colours to distinguish the levels was made to increase fun and motivation, much like the revamped levels.

    Were you referring only to the Other Users nodelet?

      I was referring to the default page "The Monastery Gates". On the right panel you've the following information:

      Isn't that arranged in a descending order according to xp's?

        Yes it is. It wasn’t clear from your root node that you meant only the nodelet. My emphatic no was due to my reading of your suggestion as wanting such indicators throughout the site, that is, including the author name displayed on posts.

        In case of the Other Users nodelet, I have no objections.
