What is the rank "Graduated Newbie School" I have wondered for ages about what that was or since I played the demo of bane of the magi for the first time and that is long time ago!!

You are no longer a Newbie... just a regular Dinker - I guess.

Yes, replies count to the amount of posts... Now don't start spamming, cause your posts will get deleted and deleted posts don't count to your amount

Correct, I believe your rank is calculated as how many posts you've posted out of the total (would make sense anyway), so when a lot of people post, and you're not one of them, your rank drops.

Reminds me of that song: I want to be a hippie and I want to get stoned.

And that reminds me of that D-mod: Kill the Hippies.

Dunno if those are good or bad memories. Strange ones I guess.

I would like ot point one thing out to everyone here.

I have learned from participating in and lurking many message boards and community that ranks liek these mean jack shoot. It is the quanity of your posts, files, ect, but the quality rather. I don't care if you have made 10,000 posts, if they are all mind numbingly stupid, you will still be treated as a newbie. But on the flip side, if you ask intellegent questions, contribute what you can once in awhile (answering questions, maybe adding a decent file to the community), you will be more widely accepted as a regular quicker.

of course, but the golden trophy beside your name on the contributor's list just looks nice, you know?

Personally, I like the blue-ish purple-ish star better. I think I'm gonna stop at super-regular and trying to balance my 'score' around that

How is counted which rank you're in?
April 18th 2004, 11:43 AM
farmer.gif
the total number of posts you have divided by the total number of posts. for example, if there were a ranking that you could get when you had 10% of the total posts, which would probably be uber poster, and there were 10,000 posts, then you'd have to make 1,000 posts to get it. but, since the total number of posts are constantly changing (increasing), the total number of posts you have to make to get to that ranking is always changing (increasing). but please don't spam posts for the sole purpose of trying to increase your rank. chances are, very few people will ever know that you're a super-regular poster unless you flat out tell them, and it's not that much of an achievement, really. this goes for everyone.

ohh, but super-regular sounds so fabulous. That's why I'm climbing my way up towards überism! Not with a very good success though...

(If I didn't post nonsense messages I'd still be a rawling with a green star.... what's that rank now..... graduated newbie school?)

EDIT 2
Ohh, and by the way, I don't really like stars... It'd be much cooler if they were replaced by apples. y know, raw apples for newbie dinkers and rotten apples for über dinkers.

I am happy to be a Super Regular Poster. Took many a years asking (sometimes stupid) questions, and making (offbeat) remarks, as well as stepping on a few toes to get there .

It sounds cool if you say: Ich bin der Über-poster!!

But it's also a bit like nazism so I just want to be a regular or something, whatever...

Nazi-ish enough for ya?

Somehow, due to the word übermensch, the whole über-thing sounds Nazi-ish. Just like the name Adolf. Not very much people are called Adolf since WW2, but what's wrong with the name? Nothing!

I agree with magicman, there's nothing wrond with the name adolf, the über thing or the (how do you call it in english???) cross. But with the emotions that are behind it.

They call it an Iron Cross, unless you are thinking of the Swastika, which had existed before the supposed birth of Christ.

Seriously though, über poster isn't really all that Nazi. Maybe der Führer( which isn't very anti-semitic either, just very symbolic)

That's exactly what I said. Führer is just a German way of saying leader. It's just the thougths and emotions that are attached to it.
