So do the Elite units count as "officers" like you were talking about on the previous page or do only the people with gold badges count as "officers"?

Oh well, I'm pretty close to leaving that list, huh? See you all on the Top 50 list! Soon anyways...

I think it's going to vary depending upon the context. The majority of the time "gold badge" and "officer" will refer to praporshchik and higher. In conversations collectively referring to everyone with BPs, officer is more likely to mean the Elite Guard ranks entire. Technically, praporshchik is roughly the equivalent of a senior WO (Warrant Officer), which is a separate career grade between that of non-commissioned officers (sergeant and corporal ranks) and commissioned officers (second lieutenant and higher).

Apologies if I somehow doublepost - if anyone's interested, when I levelled up to Police Lieutanant a few days ago, my b/p rank was less than 1000 - I'm on 507 b/p points now and ranked in the low 900's - therefore there's still less than 1000 people with 500 blam points. Only another 1000 to go...

Thanks much =) Usually I have to "get lucky" and happen to pull someone profile up who happens to have near-rank and happen to notice that as I fly through lol

I see. Well, I hope to score a gold badge by the end of summer. I need 8000 blam/protect points, right? Hehehe... I can almost taste the Top 50 list... I need less than 100 blam/protect points to make it. You'll most likely see me on that list either tomorrow or the day after. Contrary to popular belief, I don't spend all day on Newgrounds...

If the Elite Guard is to be considered as the "army", actually less than 250.

And then a Police force and a Security Agency of thousands.

I was including them along with the enlisted Elite Guard.

I'm slowly working on that officer business..

Good for you, we need more officers.

Then again, it took me almost 4 months to go from Private First Class to Second Lieutenant, so I'll hold my breath. #;-}>

The Elite Guard are now at 221 people. I think if you get ONE BP you end up being ranked about 10k, so I presume that is what gfox was referring to ... the thousands of people who aren't ranked as Elite Guard. The Elite units in real military forces usually number well under 1% of the total forces, so I don't find our current ratio surprising.

One B/P point will get you ranked around #21,000, last I checked. Probably a bit more now, but less than 25,000. Somewhere in the 20-25k zone, let's just say. And so what I was referring to was them, yes, but also Elite Guardsmen of Praporshchik or less. The point is that in reality, you need more officers to administer and order and organise and etc. etc. all the grunts! Of course, there should still be way more grunts than officers, but it should be somewhat of a nice pyramid shape. Instead, we have a very very very narrow tip bulging obscenely towards the bottom.

And since you do get promoted from Police Captain to Elite Guard Private, BTW, I include the police in with the Elite Guard as part of the overall "army."

I was referring to only ABOVE praporshchik, actually, but if you want to include warrant officers along with the commissioned officers, then it only expands the tiny group we're talking about from 20 people (Heretik and above) to 29 people (RageVI and above). Still dwarfed by the 200+ EG and especially by the 20,000+ non-officer EG + police corps.

But why? It's easier and more precise to refer to the entire EG ranks as the EG.

Well said.

To get the gold badge? Yes. To become an official officer? Well, you need 9500 for that. #;-}>

Good luck! I wonder what's up with redrum. Has he moved at all, Dogma? I thought he'd make the top 50 list by my birthday (end of June).

Thanks for clearing that up. The gold outline to the praporshchik has always led me to believe people were including that in their comments.

Sometimes people don't take the time to be specific. I was trying to give him a rule of thumb to use when reading posts.

Prior to this past week (6 total BPs in 4 days), he was averaging 13.86/day during the 3 weeks in which I have been actively tracking people's progress. Part of his problem is people like me and staff, who keep raising the bar for getting to 50. As an adjunct, it is also raising the average/day of the 50 rank, so that it's currently at 14.68. If he continues to operate at his previous pace, I believe he'll eventually make it, but it will be substantially after biteme2514, Denvish, and Syme do. By the time those latter two get up in range, I should have a good handle on anyone else working their way up who could cause him further issues. If he suddenly gets more spare time, he could easily make it in a matter of days.

Hey Dogma, would you mind giving me wanker_'s user ID (he's 82 on you list)? I wanted to know how many points I needed to pass him, but he changed his name...

Never mind, I found his name (ahz) after some researching... I am beating him by 1 b/p =)

I probably should have mentioned this long ago in the 'level up' thread, but I haven't even really had the time for that. I gave up on the points, long ago. I'm actually surprised I was averaging 14 or so a day for a while. I haven't been doing anything the past month, I've even missed more than 2 weeks worth of depositing. Reasons? Priorities, mainly. I realized some time ago that I just really don't have the time for this anymore, and in fact, I never really did. I do plan to still hang around the BBS as much as I can, though. A lot of you guys are very cool to talk to, and I'd really regret losing contact. However, I fear that due to my scarce amount of free time on here my role as a WI/HT? member may be jeopardized. We'll have to see what the future brings, but at least now you all have an explanation for the no longer existent point gaining over the past couple months.

Sure. Well, it's just that getting to the "gold ranks" is a lot easier to grasp, I guess, than getting to the commissioned officer ranks... visually, at least. It's more of a tangible thing to be aiming for after you get past Police Captain and want to get back to the golden rank medal. It's certainly why I was always aiming for Praporshchik once I made it to the Elite Guard. Now I'm not sure what to aim for, but Captain will do for now. #;-}>

Some people don't have time to type E and G?

And since when is "officer" easier and quicker to type (to refer to EG Private and above) than just plain "EG" is? #;-}>

Just as long as you don't disappear completely, man. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we'd rather have you around sporadically than not at all cause you burned out or something.

But still, you were SOOOO close to the list. SO close.

And still are! Just try to accidentally keep getting those 14 points a day for a BIT longer, okay? #;-}>

Not sucky for me, but I've been spending an abnormal amount of time here at the computer working on my own flash, talking/arguing with my ex gf, playing with Fruity Loops, etc. and catching plenty of b/p's along the way.

I should be corporal by the weekend's end, the guy in my sig will look cool with two stripes.

~WHEW Just finished my writeup for the intro to the weekly update. Total time on it ~5 hours. I had a lot of links to follow through on. Come Thursday I'll tack another 2 hours on to it to get the list itself done lol.

a month ago there wasn't ;) If you look closely, you'll see that there's actually a lot of blanks. A few, I'm sure, are from people without profiles that I'll never find. The rest I haven't managed to stumble across in old posts, deposits, etc. Most of the additions to the list come from people I finally locate. You were the first I added by tracking from Captain up to EG.

The weekly update is delayed. Since 7, all I've been getting are white screens claiming they are done, with the rare occasion like this one where I get a screen I'm trying to get to. I can't get profiles faster than 1 per 10 minutes or so. It'll have to ride until this mess clears itself up.

well done, biteme - next stop, gold badge...

Yeah I got those white screens this morning too, I'm hoping it's cos they're changing over to the new db server - probably wishful thinking though...

Yeah, I had the same "white screen" problem all morning, but no longer. Now things are super-fast, so I assume that server upgrade has happened.

And I should be Corporal by Sunday as I thought.

Congratulations!

Noticed it myself last night when your unvisited-profile-link popped on to the top 50 list. #;-}>

Good job. Now start climbing!

I gave up on NG around 10. Providing I don't get stonewalled by that blank screen crap again, the weekly will be up as soon as I can after the maintenance this morning and just do the per day averages based on 8 days.

<vent>For reasons that escape me, NG suddenly comes to a screeching halt, insofar as connection speeds, at noon EDT, and suddenly goes back to normal at midnight EDT over the last few days. Notice the fact that by evening there still 20+ movies under judgement, some of which were from early afternoon? My average is going to go down the drain until that gets fixed up. I can't be bothered to spend 5 minutes trying to get 1 vote to register when there's no guarantee I'll even get the point for it. </vent> Thanks!! And yes, I'd like some cheese with that whine :-P~~

As you may have noticed, the weekly update was delayed a day. NG was being uncooperative during the time I had available in which to do the list. I will be out of town again this weekend, so this weekend's update will be posted Sunday evening.

There's a lot of links in this intro, which adds a ton of characters, so I hope it all fits in one post lol

A quick recap of our promotions this week among the Elite Guardsmen and women (those since last update are bold):

BWS : Private
Chromius : Private
Impetus : Private First Class
The_Mutley_From_Hell : Private First Class
Eliempee : Corporal
MielipuoliMieli : Corporal
TaiShoSpire : Corporal
bmxgamer : Staff Sergeant
Denvish : Staff Sergeant
overtired : Staff Sergeant
Syme : Staff Sergeant
ImportRacer666 : Sergeant First Class
Narcissus : Sergeant First Class
D0GMA : Sergeant Major
RageVI : Praporshchik
fixit : Brigadier General
TheJoe324 : Brigadier General

Grats also to biteme, who made it onto the top50 list on Thursday, and Crono. We ran out of movies on which to vote, so Chrono- didn't quite make it to Major. With 5 points to go, that should occur shortly.

For those of you who missed it (and gfox and mine's running debate), TheJoe324 popped in to let us know that he ranked up at 19,500. Essentially that all but precludes the chances of BP ranks scaling. Now all we have to do is wait for Ryo to hit 30k and we get to see what happens ...

The following losers will be ... oh, um ... USERS, yeah, I meant users. Anyway ...

The following USERS will be unavailable for NG next week:

fixit 110.38/day
TheJoe324 101.63/day
Crono- 101.13/day

They are currently undergoing isolation therapy after having watched too many "seizure" flash movies.

Featured User of the Update:

I've been keeping my eye on several "battles" between blammers jockeying for position, and this week's FU is a participant in one of those. He also seems to have gotten the better of his particular "fight," at least for the moment. People who are consistently getting a lot tend to catch my eye ;) Not only is he a flash artist, but is a prolific musician (and not just in the Audio portal), and a proud papa. I'm not entirely sure about the statement that his 2 year old daughter is, "also a better Flash author than 73% of the people that submit to NG." I think it's closer to 69.4%, but I'll let it slide =)

This week's FU:

........................... Denvish

FREELENS is one of his favorites, and after having watched his flash I can see why. Uusually, I'll try to give some general comments and focus on one or two flash. Freelens uses a wide variety of artistic styles, so I'm not going to be able to get away with that here. The artwork, in general, gives the impression that Freelens was simply aiming for "good enough," but don't let that take away from his product. It's not "crisp" animation in the same sense that Picasso and Monet arent "crisp."

Black Eye Boy is one of the few of his I "get" and I'm placing no bets that what I understand is what was meant lol. Even his "comedies", StupidFckn'Rbts:1, 2 & 3, Wonderlick: Episode 1, Wonderlick: Episode 2, and Wonderlick: Episode 3 are, well let's just say, out there. Wonderlick is the result of a tryst between Snoopy and an anteater. That should give you an idea. Wonderlick: Episode 1 and The Future of Pornography are the only flash of his with more than 200 votes, so I think he's one of those "hidden gems" I was hoping to find by doing this section.

My Arbitur/Final Exams, by STTWebs is a student's revenge. Well, more like a bitch-fest, but still quite good. I'd recommend turning up the volume, as the artist is German and usually soft-spoken in the flash. It's quite easy to miss comments.

Now back to Denvish =) Rather than try and go over his flash and audio submissions, I'll just send you tp Only You Know (MV) and you can do both at one go =). I'm not a big acoustic fan, but that's just me. It's defitinely worth checking out. What a Dalek is doing in a jungle escapes me though ~shrug~

Planet Bob is his homepage. Although he has a ton of his own music available there, as well as a few of his tracks at MP3.com, I'd venture to guess that THIS is the real pride and joy of his "work." You can also find some real, actual pictures of Denvish there. Grace obviously got her looks from Katy :-P~~~ I tell my brother-in-law something similar about his Grace too, so hush. I also managed to unearth Denvish Designs and some great Boot Screens for XP. This guy just oozes creativity ... dunno why he wastes time voting =)

For those keeping track, or merely curious:
There are 223 Elite Guards. 185 of them are listed here.
There are 71 Police Captains currently being tracked out of approximately 150.
The current per day average of the #50 is 14.74 since 27 January.
This is week 4 of this list.
I make spreadsheets far too often.
Popularity is recalculated at ~12:35am EDT.
The Last 50 Deposits page is reset at ~1:35am EDT server time.
Experience and BP ranks are recalculated at ~3:35am EDT.

On to the stats ...
