    Here at PC Battlestations, we reward you with points when doing certain things that provide value for our community.  These points help you rank up and also earn badges.  Below is the rank structure and how to earn badges.  This is not set in stone and may change if deemed necessary.

    Anyone caught trying to cheat the system just to earn points etc, could lose all their points.  The “cheater” will be banished to a world of 56k dial-up internet access; the only way to play Battlefield V is by using 3.5″ floppy disks on a 13″ CRT monitor with a mouse that has a roller ball that you have to clean every 10 minutes and a keyboard with the W-A-S-D keys missing; the only RGB is the light from your 3.5″ floppy drive eagerly transferring bytes like the salmon of Capistrano; all while sitting on a steel, folding cactus chair.
