JVS noted that the ILMfan forums ranks were not working according to the FAQ. After poking around for a while I realized the problem. During the initial conversion from the flat text user database that UBB used to the current phpBB system that uses MySQL, I explicitly set the rank on everybody to be an FX Newbie. Once it's set that way in the DB, no matter what the amount of posts anyone had would change their ranks display. I just cleared the corresponding field (setting it to NULL). I checked and now all ranks displays are working fine.
