While Visiting Profiles of some Devs /Senior members i saw some profilers with zero posts thanked the OP. I mean even for irreverent posts. Which means there are so many fake profiles in xda which are created just to increase thanks meter. I Think its so lame.

I think a real dev doesnt go for fake thanks. Does Xda gives rank like junior/senior member, recognised contributer etc.. according to thanks meter?

The thanks meter was implemented to help keep the forums from filling up with "useless" thank you posts. Junior/Senior member is determined by post count. Recognized status (RC, RT, RD) has different criteria and it is largely dependent on the quality of the posts. Some users, especially new ones, put too much value on the thanks meter and it can be abused, so if you do notice any of these suspicious accounts please PM one of the moderators and we will investigate it. xda is also full of lurkers who follow threads but don't post very much, so it isn't always thank you count inflation.
