...... I found the list of Rankings.
However I notice some Posters have rankings, eg. Lithgovian Ambassador-at-Large and The Snow Lord, not on the list.
Are they special people, like, part of an Inner Sanctum or something?.
Would someone be good enough to enlighten me about this?.
Here is the "official" list of the rankings:
1 post - Beginner
10 posts - Station Staff
20 - Station Master
50 - Locomotive Fireman
75 - Locomotive Driver
100 - Junior Train Controller
200 - Train Controller
300 - Chief Train Controller
500 - Assistant Commissioner
700 - Deputy Commissioner
1000 - Chief Commissioner
5000 - Minister for Railways
10000 - The Ghost of George Stephenson
15000(?) - Dr Beeching
20000 - Sir Nigel Gresley
However some of the elder statesmen of the forum have unique and personalised rankings, to get one of those you really need to be here for years. Usually Admins and Moderators have these (or simply "Site Admin" or "Moderator") but only these people, or as I said the elite members on here (users who literally have been here forever), have unique rankings, such as the ones you mentioned.
As for the medals/stars under your username, I don't think anyone knows what they are for.
