I believe that this says it all, T'Lyra:


 



 


Forgive me. I am digressing from the original topic of this thread. I had better stop now before I am considered a spammer.

No forgiveness is needed. You are quite correct, indeed! If we are digressing, then I suppose one of us should at least try to get back on topic. Allow me.


I have posted more in the past three days than I have in a month attempting to get promoted. I am exceedingly puzzled by this... There must be a solution, of course, but none of our conjectures seem correct so far, except perhaps the system being random, which seems to be the most likely.

I'd like to see other ways of gaining rank on this site...such as mini-games for experience badges or something similar...eventually counting towards your rank.
although thinking about it, it sounds like the scouts lol
gaining rank simply by sending messages could easily be abused...and we all hate spammers :-)

Maybe since they are having such trouble with their ranking system they should either do away with it or make everyone one rank and leave it at that. :: shrugs ::

I had a similar idea on the bus the other day, but it would be very hard to implement.
It shouldn't be too difficult for a the type of website developers CBS can afford to create a simple system based on post count, though! Unfortunately, it seems they can't.

On a related note, I have not yet heard anything back from the people I emailed. I'll try again in a week or so in case they didn't get it.

I don't think I did anything special but I made Lt. JG on my 10th post. I thought it was like 10, 50, 100 or something. That's strange if it's random.

CBS responded to my email (finally!) - apparently, they're adding a guide to the FAQs soon.

Huh. "Define" soon! Bet it will be quite some time before we see anything. . . it is still good to know, however.

But I know others here that have been members of ST.com for many years and are still Ens. I've been a member since 1998 and I know of at least one other member that was here longer than me, by a couple of years. And we have been involved since the PDE days.

I think it's just a glitch that they either need to fix or do away with, IMO.

Hmmm, it takes buying something to increase your rank? Guess I'll stay an Ensign then

Also, not doubting you ^_^ Just that I'm not going to test that theory for myself. The rank means nothing to me, I'm just curious as to the reasoning behind the apparent wonkyness that it seems to be is all.

They could do away with it or keep it, doesn't bother me. But others will keep asking about it and that will keep the curious wondering

Still haven't figured out why they just don't come out and tell us what the method is...


That would be nice

They have stickied a topic about the ranks. Part of it is posting pics, but not everyone can post pics. Oh, well, no biggie to stay an Ens. But at least they do have something about the ranking for those who have asked
