I think by 'expanded' Annadog means that the various rankings will require higher post counts to get to them, so to speak.

Ya that since now their are so many users with more than 1000 posts that 1000 posts isn't as extraordinary as it once was.

 Maybe tweaking the numbers would be a good idea. I mean, I'm happy to have made it to Candlestick Park, but I've been a member less than a year so at this rate, I'll be on the roof pretty soon. That's the end of the line, right? I kind of like the idea of being able to move up.

Just as long as it doesn't encourage people to post friviously like it did **two certain people** Some folks remember the "race to the roof" in the not too distant past.

Yeah, it is. I mean, there is the (unimaginable to us mere mortals) 10,000 posts mark, but your rank doesn't change.

The milestone post area might of fueled that. The modern forum culture is more like "I should get to the rooftop meaningfully."

Do folk still pay attention to the rankings aside from the rooftop? Thought they had long departed from the times of interest.

It might be because of the fact that it takes so little time now a days for people to get to the ranks.

Possibly. 

Wasn't this very theme discussed not so far ago?

If expanded won't it just be that there were more locations spread further apart, and the rooftop is still the end glory?

And yeah, no races to x post count or locations. Its been done.

It would probably be the same ranks just would take more to get there like Roof top could take 2001 posts instead of 1001 posts.

Yeah. I didn't realise there were already 20 locations in place. I'd suggest the rooftop should be notable so for instance 5k; an obtainable target but much further in front - or even 15k so i get my own place.

At the moment the rooftop must be mobbed, buckling under the weight of all the people, and breaching all kinds of health and safety rules.

I rarely look at it, but sometimes, my eyes just wander in the direction and I'll notice I've gone up a venue or two. Or three. It's still fun, though. Not important, but fun.

I'm not sure. I'm not opposed to the idea of upping the message counts to get to each milestone, but I definitely don't want to encourage people to post nonsense just to get further.

Also, the vast majority of members post fewer than 100 times. Perhaps we let people get to Abbey Road on the same number of posts, but thereafter it takes longer.

How about this? Current numbers are in black, suggested future ones in red:

A Beginning - up to 10 posts
St Peters Church - up to 15
Casbah Coffee Club - 25
The Jacaranda - 35
The Indra - 45
The Kaiserkeller - 55
The Top Ten Club - 65
The Star-Club - 75
The Cavern Club - 85
Decca - 95
Abbey Road - 105
London Palladium - 115 / 200
Royal Command Performance - 125 / 300
Paris Olympia - 150 / 400
Ed Sullivan Show - 200 / 500
Carnegie Hall - 300 / 650
Hollywood Bowl - 400 / 800
Shea Stadium - 500 / 1,000
Candlestick Park - 750 / 2,500
Rishikesh - 1,000 / 5,000
Apple rooftop - 5,001+

Thanks to @Zig for the suggestion for an extra location (Abbey Road crossing) at the end. I think I'll leave the rooftop as the final step though.

No objections here - I don't give it much thought anyway.

Out of curiosity, how many Rooftoppers do we have at the moment?  Is this really going to affect enough people to warrant the change?

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Forty-three at the present time.

No, I didn't just know off the top of my head, I went to the forum ranks info and counted them up. I may have mis-counted. But it gives you some idea... over forty is quite a lot.

There's going to be some disappointed people when we throw them off the roof. Is there a word for that, the equivalent of defenestration (but not involving windows)?
