What's the rank for, and how do you gain a rank?

The three user ranks are: Registered, Private and Private First Class.

It's good to see who did how much for the project.

How do you get up to a higher rank then a Private such as a general, or likewise a seargent?

These are the most common ways to contribute:
  • Find real bugs in the game and report them to the sf.net tracker.
    • If you can build a fixing patch for it.
  • Discuss with the other developers which features are needed for the next release, build them up the best you possibly can and then submit a patch with your code to the sf.net tracker.
  • Add quality information to the BZWiki (whilst regarding the wiki rules).
Additionaly you should always try to appear competent on this forum (aka the BZBB).

For example, I have made quite a few sizable contributions to the project. I'm involved in the community, help people out, etc.

Which is why I was 'promoted' to Sergeant Major ;)

I didn't do nothing and ended up with my lousy rank... I don't get it! ;-)

Lol joevano, and you think it's lousy? It's cool. But you know a lot about Bz flag so I guess maybe thats why?

And mrapple, thanks for the advice. I'll try to help out
