The modification that allowed this has been fixed! Huzzah!

If your rank suddenly changes, this is why Smiley

Well if I remember rightly (based on own memory) it goes:

Swab (no cogs and limited permissions)
Deck hand (one brown cog and able to send/ read pm's)
Gunner  (two brown cogs)
Officer  (three brown cogs)
Senior officer (four brown cogs)
Zeppelin captain (five brown cogs)
Zeppelin admiral (six brown cogs)
Zeppelin overlord (seven brown cogs)
Rouge aetherlord (one orange cog)
Immortal (two orange cogs)

From there you've got time traveller and master tinkerer but im not too up on the order there. And obviously mods/admins have two or more gold/yellow cogs depending on their seniority.

In my defense I was on my phone at the time, and its' autocorrect is a pain for recognising INCREDIBLY obscure words but not everyday vocabulary.

For me, the idea of getting points for participating by contributing to conversations is far more important than just be logged on.

Trouble is people would also get points for posts that don't contribute to the conversation, so there used to be a lot of post-whoring. Time-based ranks were intended to reward people for learning about our culture before posting something inappropriate, and for following the adage, "You have two ears and one mouth. Try to use them in proportion."

It is also possible to just click, once every 14 minutes and keep advancing.  There is at least one case of a software routine that does the "clicking" without human intervention.

In the end, no big thing.  I guess I just liked being a Master Tinkerer more than an Immortal. Grin

There is one. (Which is odd, since last time I looked there wasn't one, and his profile says he hasn't been on in over a month.)

(DOH! Last time I looked, we were still using post count!)
