Default Profile questions

Questions about my profile ...
I understand the "pieces of eight", referring to old Spanish money (or something of that sort), which is a score for contributions, or guessing the game trivia of the day. What about the rank? I currently have a rank of above 1000, but I thought yesterday I had a lower rank. This is confusing, as I see that long-time members appear to have lower ranks.

Am I just looking at things upside down?

And what is the thing about CGA/VGA? Is that just a joke?

some of the questions can be answered if you search this forum.

However I'm a good mood
CGA/VGA is about which games you like. The ones with VGA or CGA graphics.

I'm glad you're in a good mood ... because I'd hate for you to rip my arms off with those android arms.

I found the information on the pieces of eight. But nothing on the rank. Searched the forums (title scan), FAQs, but didn't come up with anything.

The rank is a combination of PoE and alphabetical queue I thought.
Has been a discussion before, somewhere.
Or something.
Whatever.



Not interesting at all.

I think it's just PoEs. Well, sorted alphabetically after that. I've only been here regularly for a couple of months and I'm already up around 330.

EDIT: Which tends to put me on top of those with the some number of PoEs as me. :laugh:

Yea man. Rank number 1 is the best you can get. Over 1000 means total noobage.
