As for myself I'm not asking to be promoted. Frankly I think I deserve where I am right now since I don't post here much at all. But whining and complaining IMO shouldn't get you anywhere. It's one of those things that just annoy me.
EDIT: Ghost, like I said. We don't post much. But I'd rather give a promotion to someone who's inactive than to someone actually ASKING for promotions. You don't go and ask your boss for a promotion, do you?

You were complaining about other people complaining about promotions, and then you complained about not getting a promotion yourself.
But meh, it's the interwebs.

I said I didn't want a promotion. The topic of the post was that people are literally ASKING for promotions to get noticed by the other users in order to get themselves a promotion. That is just disgusting in my honest opinion.
Again, reference to a boss. You don't go to your boss every day to ask if you can get a raise or a promotion. You'd probably get demoted, even fired. The boss shouldn't have to be asked on whether you can get a promotion either. Promotions should take work, hard effort. You have to get noticed. You can't sit around and then beg for a promotion.
So, to say it again, people asking for promotions is, for me, quite arrogant. I don't know about you or anyone else, but if I were boss of some company and someone asked me for a promotion, I'd personally kick them out the door.
AND that was my last post of the day. Way to go me.
...that brings up another point. Quite a few users ignore that post limit completely...and if I can recall, yosup, you are a repeat felon.
At below: And yet you've done it on multiple occasions, yet you are getting promotions. If somebody broke the rules repeatedly, I wouldn't consider promotions at all. Not saying it has to be spot on 100% of the time, but it definitely isn't something to get promoted over.
IMO this whole ranking system makes no sense at all, as does the post count. If people are getting promotions by breaking the rules and begging/asking/whatever you call it, I just say the post limit be removed regardless.

And I've quit that. I remember when AMMO went berserk on me and demoted me like a bazillion times in a day.
(woah, wtf. bazillion doesn't come up for a spell check..)
