The Rankest Thread Imaginable

Postby alietr » Tue Oct 18, 2011 1:03 pm

Maybe not that bad. As people may have noticed, the Board software can automatically assign you a 'Rank' according to the number of times you've posted. In the alternative, like RandyG, I can assign a specific Rank to people. I am going to propose that the following can be used: Jeopardy TOC'er (for those esteemed folks among us), Jeopardy Champion (for those lucky enough to have won a game), Jeopardy Contestant (those who appeared on the show but didn't win), Swimmer in the Pool (for those who have current high hopes), and About to Be Jeopardy Champion (for the rest of us). If you would like to have one of these assigned to you, or even a custom one like 'Village Idiot', please post here and I'll get around to changing you. And sorry, but JBoarder of the Month is currently unavailable. Hopefully you'll like this idea.

ADDED: If you are changing your rank such that it might be a spoiler (i.e., you just won and want to be Jeopardy! Champion), PLEASE WAIT A WEEK so the change in rank that people see will not be a spoiler itself.

I was going to post something about "village idiot", but I decided against it. One never who might hear ;-/

So, "About to be J Contestant - eventually" sounds about right for me ;-)

Swimming in the Pool is the best fit for me, though Drowning in the Pool might be more accurate. :D

Great idea!

I'm a Swimmer: Online test in February, L.A. audition in April, THE CALL in August (but couldn't accept due to a schedule conflict on the requested tape date). (Which I guess makes it A CALL rather than THE CALL.) (And it wasn't very much advanced notice, so I assume they were trying to fill a last-minute spot with someone who's semi-local [San Diego].)

So sitting by the phone again ...

(Actually, in hindsight I'm sort of glad I wasn't able to take the August date because I most likely would have come up against Joon, and I'm not sure how well that would have worked out for me [not that it wouldn't have been fun to meet him as he seems like a great guy - Congrats, Joon, btw, in case you're seeing this!].)

I have been a swimmer, but at the moment I an About to Be Champ.

I hope you won't mind changing my status back to Swimmer, assuming everything lands jelly-side-up next year?
Teems with quiet fun.

Occasional swimmer. Currently toweled off and lounging with a fruity drink and enjoying others swimming.

Lazy Bum would work best. ;) I've been very lazy to actually take the online test.

Well, currently I'm "Moderator Extraordinaire", which is a total load, as I'm not "extraordinaire" at anything, really (especially moderating, as I just got the job and haven't had time yet to implement any nefarious schemes). :twisted:

AtBJC is probably the best descriptor of me - perpetual test-taker, but I haven't even been asked to audition, so I don't think that that even technically makes me a "pool swimmer", does it?

Of course, if Ken Jennings ever joins our board, he should have a rank of "Ken Jennings". :)

Out of courtesy, I'm only going to change someone if they ask. I know the status of quite a few people, but don't feel it's my place to do so.

You are a fair and just ruler of the JBoard domain.

Besides, I was just doing it for the Shatner imitation.

Although "Valued Contributor" is all well and good, I feel I should mark the fact that I just ended a second unsuccessful stint in the pool. Could I be called "Two-Time Swimmer"?
