Can someone explain to me the rank system here in Robotech.com again please?  How many points do we earn a day?  Is it just one point a day, for every time we log on?

What are the points earned for each rank?  And what are the ranks?

Much obliged.

Well…

That’s a bit complicated…

First off, the points system hasn’t been reinstated yet (and probably won’t be).

Originally, the point systems was based on number of posts (one point per post) that a member would submit, as well as just logging on (one point per day). But that lead to spam posting by members to quickly increase their rank. So the point per post part was done away with.
Points were also given for participation in polls and trivia.

As for the ranks:
Captain - Site Administrators
Commander - Site Moderators
Lt. Commander - Manual promotion for members who have shown themselves to be dedicated fans and helpful to the site and members.
Lieutenant (This was the highest rank that you could achieve under the points system, barring manual promotion to Lt. Commander, or becoming a Site Moderator)
Master Chief Sargent
Master Sargent
Sergant
Corporal
Private 1st Class
Private

(Edit: Forgot one of the ranks, and added a bit more information.)
(Edit II: Fixed spelling mistakes, and one of the ranks.)

Copy all, thanks.

So you’re saying, every time we log on, we don’t earn any points anymore?

What’s the incentive for people to log on, then?

I don’t know what this site has set up now in regards to advancing in rank.
Perhaps it’s back to being based on number of posts that you’ve made, as well as logging on.

There used to be the Officer’s Forum, which required you to be a Lieutenant or higher to access.
That might be brought back, but I doubt it. It wasn’t that active back in the day.
But members wanted to get to an Officer’s rank to find out.

In the beginning you could rapid click on the log in button and get a point for every click.

Its been awhile for me but life happens. Glad to see an update but very said the point system is gone. I was working on rank because I was one of those loyal fans wanting to make it to officer status. Now how do I gain rank? I grew up on Robotech. Spent a lot of years tracking down the episodes to buy. I even had my dad looking. It took me having to go to NY and that’s where I found them. I bought the WHOLE series. I have a love for the Robotech universe and I have all the original books too. My wife tells me I am such a nerd…she has even started to like the “cartoons” as she puts it. She has read the books too, all the way to End of Circle. I guess you would call me a die hard fan of Robotech. Cant wait to start getting those points and earn rank again. Hope there are others out there like me…lol

As the point system hasn’t been reinstated, I don’t know how the ranks advance, or even if they do now.

Additionally you could also get points for submitting fan-fiction and fan-art. Again that’s something that hasn’t been reinstated either…

That’s right. I forgot about submitting fan art/fiction as a means of acquiring points.
