Three more months, and I'll be Jedi Knight, that is, if I don't die before that.

Jedi Spirit is a new level added just a few months ago. The original levels were once much lower. Jay explained that he never really believed that people would post so much on this site. We proved him wrong. I think the original level for Jedi Council was something like 1000 and that was the highest. Remember that motti?

It was 3K for Council Member, but that's still pretty low; if it had stayed that way, DAYV, Shimmy and I would have been Council members long ago.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Our Council would be quite large. As it stands, you guys are pretty damn close to crossing that barrier anyway.

You guys need to create another rank...

Maybe. However, it will only be me and motti at Jedi Spirit for quite a while before anyone else catches up. So it's not really a concern at the moment. Once you get dozens of people either at or encroaching on a level, then you need to worry about a new one. Til that time...

They've all disappeared due to the archiving error. Even our rankings thread. Had to go and create a new one.
