I KNEW there was a change in ranking! Compare to the old ranking system here:
(100-499) Heart Moo
(500-999) Hero in Training
(2000-2999) Dream Traveler
But yeah, increasing people's dreamer rating
Or decreasing John Smith's dreamer rating
is purely optional, and doesn't really do much, besides maybe show you who the more prominent and/or likeable members of the board might be...not that it's a POPULARITY CONTEST, or anything silly like that...same with rankings, though they do give you neat little dream stones for each ranking you go up by.
