According to my calculations, at the present pace Apolyton will outrank us all by sometime next week!

His posting on the forums is a workout itself lol.

I should just start my own workout journal so that I can actually vote.

Yea, I just did this last night. I had to create the special rank of "Exalted Seer" for Stephen Johnson, so I added 12 regular ranks, which go by post count.

More of a geek actually. Although some would say dork applies as well as nerd. I did play entirely too much D&D when I was younger, and I still have a giant bag of dice in the closet as well as books and other things. The Ranks have nothing to do with D&D though. In this instance, "wizard" is more in the context of wise.

I'm going to get tactical with this. I'll start dividing my posts into a series of shorter posts to get my count up :wink:

I could get there in about an hour.

I guess it's fitting, me being a wizard. I still play RPGs - I started with D&D back in 1980-81 or so, and I still write for an RPG games company. And it beats T-Nation ranking you by how much money you've spent on their supplements.

But mostly my sagacity comes from posting at least once a day - a daily journal will add up. Poly will catch me in no time though.

So what are the possible ranks? Where do I stand? What are the privileges and powers associated with the ranks? Will I get wiser when I go up a rank?

When you level up, you get more hit points and more powers.

Sadly I don't play a class-and-levels game so all I get is more points to spend on skills and stats. I'm going to save them up and buy up my ST.

I have a couple of topics we could vote on. But since I'm just an associate, can you give one of your votes to me as a proxy? hahahah

OK, I see the answer to my first question on the other thread.

So Exalted Seer can only be granted upon the nomination by an Omniscient Member or higher, right?

There could be a "Loquacious Member", a special category for those who post a lot but don't say much.

I think that you should get extra credit, because you do add a lot of good content. I feel uncomfortable outranking you. I'll take it, though, for the higher pay grade.

Us Omniscient guys get paid at least twice as much as mere Veterens. I wonder how much the wizards get.

I meant no offense. You're talking to a rpg nerd/geek yourself. But I see...for some reason, I think of sage as more wise than wizard. But I guess sage of sagacity would be a little stupid!
