I've gone from being Rorthron the Wise to Rorthron the Berk!

Probably more accurate....

I always like the old WoSF gradings - think I got up to Manic Miner. Be damned if I can remember what they all were though.

An obvious one could be the Elite ratings: http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/Pilots_Federation, but personally I'd prefer something a bit more Speccy-fied.

For those wondering why they have 'Berk' under their username, it's because we quickly set the forum ranks to the first Spectrum characters that popped into our heads. It then goes onto Dizzy, Manic Miner and others, but doesn't mean much as there is no obvious gradation.

If anyone has any good ideas for forum ranks could they post them here pleez. Then in a few weeks we'll have a poll.
16k
48k
48k+
128k
+2
+3
I think that could be expanded a bit if hardware is the "thing"...
  1. ZX80
  2. ZX81
  3. Spectrum 16k
  4. Spectrum 48k
  5. Spectrum+ 48k
  6. Spectrum+ 128k
  7. Spectrum+2
  8. Spectrum+2A
  9. Spectrum+2B
  10. Spectrum+3
  11. Spectrum+3B
Best that any more modern (and maybe controversial) machines are not included...!

FTFY :lol:


p.s. it should be Spectrum+ and Spectrum 128. Also I think when I have seen any official designation for the amount of RAM in a ZX Spectrum it was styled 16K and 48K (yes I know that is wrong for kilo)

My rubbish website including the redrawn Amstrad schematics and the new home of the Sinclair FAQ wiki.

As if the +2A is an advancement over the original +2!

If you ban a user can his rank be set to "ZX Vega+" ? :twisted:

Oh, and I was actually thinking that twelve ranks would be nice number, but could only think of eleven at the moment... then I wondered if a "space" should be left, depending on how we look back on recent past events from a perspective in the future...

Of course it is an advancement, it has crap sound :lol:
More seriously, at least the +2A is the correct colour :P And they quickly produced a new +2B PCB with the sound problem "fixed".

And to be fair, Amstrad were just continuing the Sinclair tradition of not getting it 100% right (See the QL story...).

Back to the thread subject (sorry, forgot that most of you are used to WoS thread drift).

If not hardware, then what other lists do members think would work well?

I quite like the current ranks. I'm hoping if I post enough drivel I can be the first to rise above Berkdom!
