Hey, girl! I just noticed that you are a Commodore now! Congratulations!!!

If you want a real laugh, look in the Commie Lounge for "Sector 7's Farewell to the Troops" thread. I may be dumb, but I'm cute...OK maybe not cute, but I'm... uh never mind.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Thanks but I can't get into the Commodore Lounge yet - not been a member of trekbbs long enough. I only joined back in November so only made it to the Captains' Lounge last month. Got a while to go before I get to the Commodore Lounge.

When you get there, remember to look it up. Perhaps, if you are better than I am at math, you will know the day you get promoted to the next Lounge. From what I have seen, most are surprised when it happens.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

I got promoted a day earlier than I thought! But I'll have a rough idea - I've got about 2 months to go. I think 180 days is the next "promotion" day when I'll get to another lounge.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

TrekBBS uses compound dating [hey, I made up a new term!]. If I recall correctly, it will be 180 days IN ADDITION TO the time it took to make the last rank. This is what usually confuses me... and others.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Yeah, I think you need both. As in, the required amount of days membership and the required number of posts. Is that what you meant?

So, it's really 270 total days to make it to the Commodore's Lounge??

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

By the looks of things, yes. But we'll get to the Fleet Captains' Lounge first. You have to have been a member for 180 days for that and 365 days for the Commodore's Lounge.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

It is probably the most complicated part of TrekBBS... figuring out the exact time of your next promotion. My statement is based on observation; most people who come up from other lounges are surprised when it happens. Therefore, it must be difficult to calculate... unless you are some kind of... I dunno... a math genius... or... wait for it... a Trekkie Nerd.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hmm....well I'm not a maths genius (oh dear, that wasn't meant to be a McCoyism - I only realised after I'd typed it - DOH!) but I'm not sure I'd class myself a Trekkie Nerd either!

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hi Everyone,

I came into my Fandom later than some i guess, when i was a kid and ST was on tv for the original runs of TNG, Voy, and DS9 i would quickly change the channel, or find something else to do... like chores...

Later on though, in a re run of the series of Vogager, my brother got me into it and i quickly became a fan. Voyager isnt my favorite series, but if i hadnt watched it i never would have gotten to know Picard as well as I do today.
