    I only joined the forum on Sunday night and I'm starting to get the hang of it but I was just wondering if someone can tell me how the ranks work on here, you start out as a Jedi Youngling but how do you move up to 'Jedi Master' 'Force Ghost' etc..?

    I've been here quite some time and asked that very question! The answer was very vague. You can get some hints under the Help section at the top of the screen and click on Trophy Awards. Doing those things earn you points and those points somehow secretly correlate to your Jedi Youngling status. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful than that.

    Just go take a look around and keep posting. Do take it easy on any strong opinions for a bit so people don't take you the wrong way. Not that you have or anything. I like you icon pic!:cool:

    Welcome Wookiedookies! :)

    There's a better answer about how many trophy points leads to which rank, but I'm at the wrong computer, so I ask you to wait for one more day. THen I can post you the list. :)

    Btw, I think it was about 15 points for "padawan" (next rank), but I'm totally sure.

    Have fun in the meantime! :)

    Here's the promised list of ranking/titles:


    Youngling - 0 points (trophie points of course)
    Padawan - 15 points
    Knight - 50 points
    Master - 45 points
    Grand Master - 100 points
    Force Ghost - 200 points
    Kwisatz Haderach - 5000 points


    Does that help or is this still too "unclear" or are any questions still open? :)

    Thanks for posting that! I do have a question and maybe it's just a typo. Why is Knight 50 and Master 45? Shouldn't that be reversed?

    I'm guessing that's a typo.

    The problem is that, thus far, most people's point meter sorta locks up shortly after 200 points. It's a site-wide issue that has been discussed in Comms to no resolution, thus far. I made Force Ghost months ago and despite a dozen or more alerts per day, I have been stuck at 2oo + a dozen since the end of 2012.

    Cool, I can come closer to getting my next trophy points just by posting more messages!

    Still, I won't take advantage of this knowledge and make unnecessary posts just so that I can game the system.

    Wait a second... was that last post really necessary after all?

    Oh well...

    [face_laugh] At least the second one could have been an "edit within the first one". :p

    If you actually get 5000 points you'll be given ownership of this site and a starring role in a Star Wars film.

    I'm new here, so I didn't know about the edit feature on this forum.

    Let's see...

    Yep, it works. (Read below.)

    Now I just need to figure out how to get people to "like" my posts and I'll have it made!

    Oh yes, that's the big question.
    Many still haven't figured that one out

    Giving them a big paycheck could work... never tested it though. :p

    Or you simply keep posting and hoping the best. ;)

    Btw there was a time when there were no like-feature at the boards... JFYI. ;)
