K my 0.02$ on this subject.

I think that alot could have been avoided here by simply adding a new rank ABOVE CBN that way you did get something NEW to shoot for not something OLD.

If you wanna make a change then make a change in the NEW direction. that way CBN'* stay that way and some new title would be made. Even better than CBN.



Also Bonnephile, each post you made seems that you were simply trying to antiganize people more. And some say you have been around for a while as the other member with was a new member as of July of 2003 not that old.

I have been around for nearly 2 years and my post count is less than 400 cause I don't beleive in making useless posts in sections that don't count. As for lounge well that is fair game.

Maybe next time you decide to make comments like you did in here you may want to think about it.

This was something we've been planning since before the crash. We really needed to add the extra rank to account for the GXP/Northstar drivetrain. It made sense to further 'specialize' CBN by pushing it up to 6 stars, rather than having L67 and CBN both be 5. We also thought it would be VERY fitting to have the actual post count for CBN to be something 'familiar'. Did we go too far? Or is it only one or two people that have a problem here?

Thinking here.....Don and I really need to know what the majority thinks on this. We need everyone to sound off. I'm not going to let one voice dominate the discussion without everyone having their chance to speak up. PLEASE everyone state an opinion on this.

There was more to this. Who'* noticed? Something alot more important, and I'd hate to see this ranting spoil their day. Look around.

All the antagonizing aside, I have stated my opinion and reacted as proper as I could granted the nature of the comments directed towards ME.

Lets keep the new structure

I do see the reason behind it and do agree with it. I know that this is not the first time teh ranks have been "tweaked" and CBN at 3800 should have been done a while ago.


As for having just added above what was there may have been better as for what well we would have to get realy creative. Something better than CBN if that is possible.

Thanks, Mice. We tossed that idea around awhile, but CBN just had too much history here as the 'ultimate'. We're trying to preserve as much of Jeff'* vision as possible. This is his baby. We're just babysitting.

THe fact that whoreboy, I mean BonneMeMN is a CBN once again.

But we all knew he was certifiable, hell he even admits to being an idot, LOL.

Step one
Admit you have a problem.
