Title: An impressive rise through the ranks
Post by: Norm on 08 December 2018, 06:24:38 AM
I have  just noticed that my time logged here is going on for 7 days 19 hours.

I also note that I have somehow become a Lieutenant Colonel

When I think back to my first job, I was still making the tea after 8 days, so I consider my rise here as almost meteoric.

Wiki says that I can typically expect to command a battalion, so at last can be represented on the board in say a Black Powder game, yes, I can see it, Battalion Commander in the Old Guard. 

Thanks Pendraken for running a great forum, that is a pleasant place to roam.

Congrats on the promotion.

I echo the sentiment about this forum.

Shall we have three 'huzzahs' or a double whisky?

Huzzah

Huzzah!

Huzzah!!

My life's gaming experience would have been much less enjoyable without this company.

Congrats, Norm....  :-bd

I think you're next promotion will come after a thousand posts....So you've not got TOO far to go. :)

Cheers - Phil

Well done Norm. Get your new battalion to give the Prussians a damn good thrashing.  =D> =D> =D>

Nice one Norm (114 days and counting)

Congrats, Norm. This prompted me to look at my own stats. Whilst more than 2/3rds of my posts are hobby related, almost one third of my posts are in the 'Chat & News' and 'Fun Stuff' sections - a stat that, in addition to the pleasant demeanour of the members (most of the time  :P ), epitomises for me the reasons why this forum stands out above all others and makes it an enjoyable place to visit.

Total time logged in: 113 days, 4 hours and 55 minutes.

I need to up my posting rate :)

Compared to you, Mike....The amount of time I've spent on the forum is quite low (Not quite 80 days)

For someone who wasn't going to join the forum...I've spouted an awful lot of garbage.
Only Will (Mad Lammey) has posted more often than yours truly...

The pair of us are quite a bit in front of the 'Dark Lord'. ;)

Cheers - Phil

I was trying to keep up with lemmey and Techno but I've given up now.  I'm going to focus on quality rather than quantity...!   :P :D

I'm not even trying to keep up with Will.

Your potty .... sorry, Pottery Anniversary :)

Why are you still using a potty at your age?

It's cheaper than buying a genuine helmet from any period of history, surely ?

From "Elder Scrolls Online" I give you Cadwell's Helm of Heroism ... because only a hero could get away with wearing that!

Thursday 14/03/19 marks my 9th anniversary of signing up

Hmm, mine as well? Does that seem likely, or has there been a 'reset' of starting dates?


Title: Re: An impressive rise through the ranks
Post by: Ithoriel on 11 March 2019, 03:49:00 PM
My profile says

Date Registered:    2013-05-21, 14:47:44

So it doesn't look like a reset

Just realised it was my 9th anniversary of signing up yesterday on the 10/3/2010


Title: Re: An impressive rise through the ranks
Post by: fred. on 11 March 2019, 05:51:43 PM
Mine was 5/5/2010

So I think itís likely itís 9 years since the forum was setup ?


Title: Re: An impressive rise through the ranks
Post by: Fenton on 11 March 2019, 05:57:57 PM
The first intro and welcome was was 9/3/2010 and Leon registered on 8/3/2010

Iím a 2010 late starter as well, linked to me buying FPW and SYW figures.

This is rivetting!     (:|

Whilst the date we all joined is all very interesting, if anyone really wants to know, all you have to do is click on the member's name .... I know. "Bah, humbug," me. :-[

I am a mere 2nd Lieutenant, and it look me a long time to progress that far. Still, writing this gets me one more tiny step up the ranks.  At the current rate, I should make Major about 2040

I think I'll get my seventh 'star' within the next couple of weeks, and reach the same 'rank' as Will. :-\

Damn, I'll have to post faster to see what happens next!


Title: Re: An impressive rise through the ranks
Post by: Techno on 15 March 2019, 07:45:02 AM
I believe my next promotion comes at 17,500, Will.

I'll take a wild guess that your next level comes at 20,000.

What happens after that ?......Every 2,500 or every 5,000 ?.....Has Leon already said ? :-\
