It stopped working whenthe new forum went online. I just think they decided we didnt really need it anymore. We can see when people get promoted.

It was something I wrote for the old forum. When we moved to the new forum it stopped working. I lost the code I wrote for the old one and didn't have the time or effort required to rewrite it from scratch...

With the amount of new members it would also be posting a lot, while it was fun its not greatly needed.

I agree. It was fine when we only had about a dozen people posting regularly, but with the amount of people we have now it'd get a bit cluttered.

You'd need a separate thread just for Mark's promotions. :lol:

Yeah, well, Rochey's string of promotions through Captain is already long since in the books; he's been in the territory where promotions are much further apart for quite some time now.

Indeed. It's going to be quite a while 'till I hit the next rank.

Is there another rank?

I assume so.

They seem to have levelled off in the last couple - 3000 post gaps apiece. Of course, they might be about to go shooting up again.

Another two or three, depending on whether non-Kennedys are allowed six-star ranks.

I imagine I won't hit the next rank 'till I get to around 15000 posts. Dunno why, but I just have a feeling.

*smiles knowingly*

Incidentally, the ranks go up to 5 Pip Admiral. You can't get to six pips no matter how much you post.
