New ranking system
« on: March 25, 2008, 09:14:19 AM »
This forum has a "rank" system that is purely built off of post count.  I've modified it as follows:


Seaman Apprentice, 0-19 posts


Seaman, 20-59 posts


Petty Officer 3rd class, 60-119 posts


Petty Officer 2nd class, 120-239 posts


Petty Officer 1st class, 240-479 posts


Chief Petty Officer, 480+ posts

Of course, these ranks mean nothing other than how many total posts you've made.  Get to posting fellas!

Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy, this is reserved for the admin

Today I added a neat Bravo Zulu! (well done!) feature.  If you wish to give someone thanks for a helpful post they made, just click on the "+1 Bravo Zulu!" link under their username in a posting thread.  This will add to their total number of BZs as shown.

Don't worry, you can't give yourself BZs and it's completely anonymous.  Not even I know who gives who BZs.

There was a negative BZ option as well, but I removed it.   :knuppel2:

I was wondering why I was a Seaman Deuce again.  Now I know how to move up. :)

Hehe, yep Bill, the ranking system is basically a fun little way to reflect how many posts you've made over time.  Most all other internet forums have a similar ranking thing.

The BZ system is just a nice way to thank others without having to say anything.

Unfortunately for me, it's potato..............not potatoes.  Gravy is just a memory for this former "slim-jim".  Enjoy them while you still can, Lance!
