got an invite the other day. I'm fuzzy on ranks. How do I upgrade from a recruite? And I have a tried to deposit some items, but the bank was full!
I cleaned the vault out a little. Sold the items and put the cash in the bank.
As to ranks, people who have been BBS members for a while (this means before STO) usually get bumped up to Member right away. For others we wait and see how they do for a while before that. Members get access to the vault so we are a little careful about that.
