More or less, but hey stars are stars. And if the generals are selected, well then they obviously are of good material

I guess that logic should work. I mean that's why we elect politicians and select justices, right?

I agree. The rank doesn't mean squat to me. I just like the forum and the people (with a very few exceptions, most of whom have been banned) who post here.

Well I remember that at first I tried to get to Colonel pretty fast (and I did) Took me about 2 months to get to Brigadier general. Another forum that I am on has a promotion to general at the Mods discretion, which means that even if you get 500 posts does not mean you get promoted at 500. I saw a colonel with a 1000+ because he hasn't been promoted.


This is their Chart

E-7 ------ 30 posts
E-8 ------ 50 posts
E-9 ------ 70 posts
E-9 ------ 90 posts

Members will remain at the rank of E-9 until reaching 120 posts, at which point they will automatically be promoted to the "Commissioned Officer" member group. This group contains the following set of rankings:

Commissioned Officer Rankings:

O-1 ---- 120 posts
O-2 ---- 150 posts
O-3 ---- 190 posts
O-4 ---- 240 posts
O-5 ---- 300 posts
O-6 ---- 400 posts

After reaching 400 posts, a member's rank in the forum will be capped at O-6. From this point, selections will be made on occassion to allow certain members with exemplary records in the forum to be included in the "Flag Officers" member group. Members within this group will not receive caps on their rank level, and may continue their promotion scale up to full general. The remaining ranking scale may be found below:

Flag Officer Rankings:

O-7 ------------------------- 500 posts
O-8 ------------------------- 600 posts
O-9 ------------------------- 700 posts
O-10 ----------------------- 800 posts
General of the Forum -- 1000 posts.
This is what I was thinking about, just with bigger numbers like 10000 posts for General of the Forum
That's a great idea for the board's ranks.
