I realize those post counts for the higher ranks are absurd, but when we consider that DaemonForums will outlive BSDForums by many years, I certainly think it is possible for some users to reach these ranks. My hope is that an exponential model would allow small steps in the early ranks to encourage new users, but large steps in the higher ranks to challenge long term users. I suppose I could tone down the post requirements if needed.

Edit: I took out all the unneeded math crap.
