As you may have noticed, some of us (Notably Staff) have already received their own rank badges. As I speak, Zeth is working on the rest of the badges for general consumption. Expect to see them sometime today. If you have any questions or comments, please direct them to this thread.

All the badges are now up, and correct (I believe).

Now a few of you--well, any of you with Veteran rank or above--may be asking: "What's with the Fire Emblem theme? Didn't we reject that?"

To put it quite simply, the alternative to the Fire Emblem theme I originally presented ended up being the contest for submitted art to be used in the badges. This contest, despite having reminders posted/sent, had zero--that's right, not even one, from amongst those who were against the Fire Emblem, VC2, and Riftweaver themes--piece of art submitted. By zero submissions, the memberbase forfeited their right to decide what was in the badges.

The next attempt actually came in the form of the VG H&H posted in the Gym. Whichever one survived would be the highest ranking badge material, the runner-up for the second rank, and so on to the bottom. Quite frankly, I tried to make this work, and could not, so I fell back on what I knew: that is, Fire Emblem.

And furthermore, on the topic of rank, Dinowoman has been promoted to Veteran status. Feel free to congratulate her here.

Congrats Dino. It seemed natural seeing as you're already a veteran of life in general ("old" jokes to a minimum please) not to mention the fact that you are pretty much one of the two or three most mature people here.

Me? I'm surprised this didn't happen a month ago.

Thanks, Cata. :) (And no need to worry about "old" jokes. One of my friends reminds me how old I am at every opportunity. :P )

Thanks, FiA. :)

(I know that's not a very thrilling post, but I can't just ignore a well-wisher.)

Oh right, forgot that I hadn't already congratulated you Dino... Frankly, we would have promoted you earlier, but things kept coming up. Can't remember what they were of course... I'll stop rambling.

Lol. Feel free to ramble. Rambles often turn into interesting (if spammy) discussions. :P

And thanks to everyone for the congratulations.

And I've just realised that I never congratulated Zeth on the badges. I think they're great. :)
