Has anyone posted enough to make it past Padawan yet? I was wondering how many posts it takes to get beyond it, or beyond Moisture Farmer for that matter.

Well, if we all keep post-padding like this it won't take long to find out. :p

I'm hoping it changes at 250, but I'm assuming it's somewhere between 300 and 3000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

I'm sure that's a goal we can all attain.:D

The rank i'm most looking forward to is my old rank of Jedi Council Member. This rank will take a while but that's the fun of it all.

Yep I miss my old rank of "Jedi Council Member! Hope we can still reach it here :)

Lets hope the rank of Jedi Master is before the Jedi Council Member, (I know that Ki adi Mundi is in the JMC being a Jedi Knight, but i think that here we have to be Masters before joining the council)

Look at you! Wanting to run off and be padawans or more before the harvest! That's when I need you most! It's just for one more season. Stick around as a Moisture Farmer Then you can run off and do whatever you want. I'll make it up to you, I promise.......;)

:rolleyes: Sigh....a dilemma...Do I continue to post until I surpass the rank of Padawan thus negating my very name and namesake or do i go until that point and then Start again under a different, yet similar moniker in order to keep as close to the padawan rank as possible at all times???

Not including moderators there I think there are two Jedi Ambassadors: Gnt and bigbarada.

Man, I thought I posted a heck of a lot.

I think I'm going to do like GNT does and quote people and then say several words of my own just to up my post count.

Just kidding teasing ya GNT and not accusing of post padding on anything.

Dang It! I wanna be a jedi master. I should just start post padding like GNT so I can achieve that rank.

Fulit
10-04-2001, 12:01 PM
Even with blatant post padding, I would have to quit doing anything at all but sit in front of a computer 24-7 to have as many posts as GNT.

I made it all the way to Jedi Knight before I became a humble Moderator. Now I eschew the ranking system and toil for the benefit of us all.

This ranking based on quantity has to go. What about quality posts? And spelling? No credit for that?

Hey!!! He's got a reputation to maintain...;)


I'm just happy I made it to something other than "Eternal" padawan finally. I, too, eschew(good word use!) the ranking system in favor of high quality, well punctuated, correctly spelled posts.

I'm happy with the ranking, i dont care if GNT is Jedi Ghost by tomorrow, and i know that he has placed lots of posts that are irrelevant to the thread at hand, but thats just the way GNT is, everybody should be happy with the status (ranking) we all have...i agree that part of the fun from the forums is the ranking, but the real fun part is SSG history...:D j/k, the fun part is to have well argumented discussions about the topics we all like.

I wouldnt change a thing from these forums.

Have fun guys!!;) :) :D :cool:

Well you do have over 1000 posts.
I thought it was JT's job to have the most posts.

Math Quiz:
If the new forums just opened in August, and GNT already has over 1000 posts, how many will he have by Jan 1st?

I predict GNT, with his gift of gab, will shatter all known posting records and rankings, and eventually his title will be Grand Pubah Jedi Supreme Being, and they'll have to replace the number of posts under his name with a googleplex. The planets will align, the world will unite in harmony, and, oops, too much Vivarin again. sorry guys.

The ironic thing is, we are repeatedly posting to discuss GNT's repeated posting. Shouldn't Alanis Morissette be writing a song about this?

I don't know, and as my tag line states, I'm making this up as I go. Obviously any decisions like that would be entirely subjective, but a few of us take precious moments from our busy day to author what we hope will be well-thought out discussion topics and responses (not to mention using proper grammar and spelling). Perhaps if I began to break my treatise into several concurrent posts my rank might rise faster, but that seems quite silly.

At times like this I'm reminded of a favorite line: Those who are first shall be last. Those who achieve the high ranks of Jedi through questionable means clearly are tapping into the Dark Side. Have we learned nothing? :rolleyes:

I'm not posting as much as I did when the new forums where posted. I'm planning(wish) to beat my older acounts record of 2220(? Cant remember offhand,I'll check it out) but I spent over a year to get that :),It'll take me a week to get these days :)

So what do I gotta do to shed this Moisture Farmer image? I'm really more of a "Speeder Washer" or "Bantha Feeder" kind of guy.

I don't know if this has been brought up before, but it would be kind of cool if you could pick some sort of a direction (like dark side/light side in JK). Then maybe JT and GNT could square off against each other as masters of good and evil in some sort of "battle of the posts". Ok, so maybe it is a stupid idea.

I like it! Maybe if a summary of a member's posts is submitted for peer review, we can all decide if he/she has achieved a Jedi status by using the Dark side or by doing good with high quality posts. If Dark is chosen, he is busted down to one of those frogs that Jabba eats.

I stole it off another web site. It is completely non-SW related, but I like it because it looks like something that belongs in Jabba's palace or the Mos Eisley cantina. It looks like it could be wearing Luke's "floppy hat". We could probably come up with a story about how the hat came into his possession.

The creature does have a name (I didn't name it). Anyone care to make a guess?

Well, we could always delete the story thread, then GNT would lose 88 posts, but I guess we won't do that.

I'd do it just to see what kind of reaction he'd have.
