Sandy, how exactly does the ranking system work? I mean, I know technically, but what exactly are the cut-off points? How many posts is a 2x2x2, a 3x3x3, a 4x4x4, a 5x5x5, etc.

Check this thread:

viewtopic.php?p=13144#13144

I keep meaning to compile a FAQ and post it as the first message people will see, but I haven't had time!

Thanks Sandy!

Wow, you're not even 6x6x6 yet, but you bypass that by being a moderator. Speaking of, do you think you'll be employing moderators at all, or do you prefer keeping it as just yourself? Either one is fine and I can make sense out of both.

I think it was my idea. I could be wrong. If it wasn't put your name there Sandy and take all the credit for it. If it was my idea. Big if. Could you please put my name there. If it works out.

Trevor,

Nope, I'm not a 6x6x6! I'll get there quick enough at the rate I've been posting these past few days, though! There is only one person who has enough posts from TwistyMegasite to obtain that level, and oddly enough, he hasn't registered yet!

Darren,

Yeah, I guess you were asking half of these questions before most people replied. If only I made that FAQ a few days ago, I would have saved myself about a dozen answerings of those same questions!

Sandy

Ok, Now I am curious. If I were to go back and look I could probably figure it out. Who would be the 6x6x6 if they registered on this site?

Who is the 6x6x6 candidate? Also, since you didn't make the FAQ, you've upped your postcount getting you closer to 6x6x6 :D

Hmm... There's people who've been active since the very early days of the forum. Among the people who haven't registered yet, maybe Michael Cahill, Jake Bartlett, or maybe even Tyler Robbins? Doug Mueller appears to be registered now so I wonder how many posts he'll ring up.

Just look at the bottom of the general forum and you'll see the pages past. If I recall, page 48 is the earliest page. You can see where Wayne made the first post opening the forum. It's amazing how much more activity there is now than back then. And you can get an idea of how long certain people have been around these forums.

Tyler. Two or three hundred ahead of anyone else!

Why, I do believe I said Tyler Robbins. For that I should get to pick something out of your collection for myself. Hmmm... Dino Cube sounds good... :mrgreen:

Wow, I did not realize he had soooo many. I have been browsing and posting to the twisty site long before he came around. Obviously, he was a lot more active.

Thanks for the info. Sorry, the Dino cube is under lock and key for the next 25 years :roll:
