The image on this forum says new, but there is no new! My mind boggles!

There's some invisible new topic, isn't there?!

Try refreshing the main page, you should either find the new topic, or not, and you saw the old page.

We aren't talking about socks. Simmo was making a joke about Obiko having a hole in his sock.

Typical carlos logic. Sorry carlos, but you're too easy to make fun of. Nothing personal, but it's just a little fun.

It's also you spamming still. You're less than 200 posts behind me now, I'd better post meaningly some more.

Simmo: "Helm, set a course for the next unread topic, warp 7."

Helmsman: "Sir, carlos is still closing."

Simmo: "Damn. Increase to maximum warp."

Helmsman: "Increasing to warp 9.985."

Simmo: "Let's hope that's enough."

What really bothers me is that carlos is almost 100 posts ahead of me. I got promoted to captain the day after he did, and that was only a few days ago.

...and the Spammer of the Month Award goes to.... Carlos Technology!

Ahh, I remember my days at the Academy. There was a young Antican at the academy. Brilliant physicist. I understand he made a warp core capable of going to Warp 10, but then the universe caught up with him and swallowed him whole, along with the warp core, his testing professor and a pair of goggles he borrowed from me...

Good thing too, I was running out of pet parrots for him to eat...

I don't think I will ever outpost Vanhal, (the post count that is displayed in his profile and his posts), does anyone know how many posts he actually has

To figure out Vanhal's actual number of posts, subtract 10000.

Now, THAT, is spamming.

Carlos, just to set things straight. DO NOT ARGUE ABOUT THIS. You do post replies saying you dont know, or have no idea. Don't do this. Only reply, if you do have something to contribute. OK? Just follow this rule, and people wont get mad at you. I'm not getting mad at you, I'm telling you how to avoid others getting mad at you.

No, that is spamming. And we cant get annoyed at carlos, and not at you. STOP SPAMMING OBIKO. You've got 160-odd posts already. More than some long time members.

well, I don't like being called a spammer when Im not, you should call obiko a spammer if you think he is one, another thing you could do is make vanhal show his actual amount of posts, scooter told me to subtract 10000, but I don't think he has 291 posts, I think he has more

if you want to have the most posts, maybe you should edit your post count like vanhal did, then noone would be able to catch up to you

Are you somehow implying that Simmo is the one who has the problem??

Edit: Just to say something. Spamming to me means flooding a person's fora with what we in militant circles call "smilie bombs" using a "spam cannon". What you call spamming is what I'd call talking too much. If it wasn't linked to rank, there'd be no problem. In fact, I don't think it's my problem if some guys have an inferiority complex. How did they get their rank? Hmmm? By posting everyday, whenever they could? I'll bet they did...

No, I was just saying that I would like to always have the most. Kamakazie, Scooter and some others dont like it.

I'm a moderator so I have to make sure order is kept, and make sure the rules are abided by, since they sort of say, no spamming.

I never said I didn't like you having the most posts. When I joined these forums, I managed to rise through the ranks quickly by participating in every conversation. My goal would always be to get more posts than the guy above me, then the guy above him. I would always make sure to do it without spamming to the best of my ability (everybody spams sometime in their lifetime). I gave up when Carlos started getting 10 more posts ahead of me every day. Now I happily sit in the number four position.

I can't speak for Kamakazie, but my guess would be he just doesn't like carlos having more posts than him.

I dont mind anyone having more posts than me, it's natural to happen, but I just really want to get to the next rank. I'm sick of being a captain. I want to be a commodore, it sounds more impressive.

According to my sources, the next rank is supposed to be Fleet Captain, which would work because you command the 10to5 and the Nile.

Alright, EVERYONE stop spamming Na na!

Now, Carlos, noone will be promoted to Admiral, Only ME, and I'm already an admiral so that settles that Wink And you are way off with those post counts. There is only 1 more rank to reach Simmo and you aren't toooooo far away from it. And yes, subtracting 10000 does reveal Vanhal's true post count, he explained that before, and the reason why, it was only last week. What ever!

Dobberman, the admiral rank with 5 pips is actually Fleet Admiral. The admiral rank with 4 pips is Admiral. There are only a few fleet admirals.


Quote:
Fleet Admiral is the highest rank in Star Fleet. Fleet Admirals have many years of distinguished service and an impeccable record. There are only 6 Fleet Admirals: the Judge Advocate General, the Chief in Command, the Commander Star Fleet, the Commandant of the Marine Corps, the Director of the Corps of Engineers and the Fleet Commander
