    Yeah that's right, get over 50 and you are a lieutenant.

    I wonder who the first person will be who goes on a mad posting rampage to be promoted :) Someone will eventually start posting wildly to get higher up the chain... I'll be quiet now, I don't want to give anyone ideas... It'll be a whole new type of annoyance :)

    I think people who try to be promoted are odd, just write and wait.

    LOL. You guys. Are we going to have a competition as to whom gets to be a Lt. first?

    Yes, probibly... Don't worry, the first person to be promoted to Lt. will be someone who has just seen the site, comes in for his one and only time and doesn't care :)

    I dunno why everybody's going so crazy over it. It's just something we put in for fun, it has absolutely no meaning [​IMG]

    Yeah, I mean, it was either junior member and full member, or something at least slightly WC related...

    People can now delete their own messages.

    We could change it to Ensign, yes, and may yet do that. Final ranks have yet to be decided.

    Note that deleting a post does *not* subtract from your total count.

    You sure that's such a wise idea?

    Given the people on the CZ, I can see someone posting a whole metric butt-tonne of stuff, only to delete it directly afterwards to fluff up their ultimately-unimportant 'rank' without it being obvious to most of the outside world they're complete boobs.

    (Also testing my new sig, admittedly, but this post isn't solely for that purpose, so nyeah. :p )

    If people want to be stupid then we can just up the amount of posts required... [​IMG]

    I like the ranking thing. It does add some fun to the board. I would put a third or fourth rank in just for fun. I mean the true veterans will be up in the 200s.

    Umm, Atum, have you read the rest of the posts regarding the rank structure?

    <blink><u>THE UBB SCRIPT DOESN'T ALLOW FOR ANY MORE RANK LEVELS!</u></blink>

    Yes, I'm being pissy. I have low tolerance for having to state the obvious ("read what's been said before you open your mouth")...
