All of us in A.M.M.O. acknowledge full well that post count is nothing special, seeing as everyone has it and doesn't really represent how good of a member you are. AMMO does, just to get into AMMO you need to be a good member and be likeable, and if we make a hassle about promotions and demotions, so what? Ultimately, the person who promotes you has gotta like you and make a judgement of your case. If you just adopt the waaaaaambulane method of whining like a *****, no-one's gonna listen to you now, are they?
I suppose ranks here are somewhat of a measure of how good/active a member is. There's only one Captain rank, for example, but anyone can reach 20,000 posts. Exclusivity much FTW.
Ryan-, the system works. Let the system do its work. It's called a democratic hierarchy. With a dictator at the top. It's all a bit of fun and I think you may just be taking it a little to serious.
The rank system is supposed to promote people over a long period of time and as their posts improve. yosup used to be a spammer, but he's a better member now and as such deserves occaisional promotions. I used to be a spammer, do you want to take my rank away from me? Stop being silly. The ranks are there to reward people for being active or posting well, or to punish them for being moronic.
If people act well they'll be promoted, simple as that.
Darthy, I'll promote you...at some point. Once I can find the post in which I said that.
don't worry sweety, i totally understand! here, take some midol, or do you prefer pamprin? they always help me when i feel like that
i'm just kidding, i luv ya!
oh @ petray- ooh, Rump-o-smooth-skin you say you wanna ride in my Benz? well use me use me, cause you ain't that average groupy
Here's a thought, guys... PM someone of higher rank than you and ask for a promotion. List the reasons why you think you deserve it, and leave it up to them to make the decision in private.
No sense in stirring the pot if it doesn't need to be.
