    I have it on good information from TES, that I have been promoted and am now Major Contributor. Why this is so will be a mystery to all of us, but in the role play adventure we are being offered, along with the party animal I am, I let you know I shall be doing an inspection of the troops five minutes after the bugle calls reveille at 5:30 am.

    Those who do don't answer "Present Sah" when I call their names out wil be on a fizzer, or whatever it's known as.

    I will not tolerate an unpolished boot, not even a suede one.

    Along with the message from from TES about my promotion, came another one to let me know that a courier would be arriving with a pack of throat lozenges to assist me if the shouting causes me discomfort.

    Slackers beware. I don't intend to say this twice.

    You've been spammed. You're still just a prominent like the rest of us grunts.

    I didn't think there was a role above 'Prominent Contributor'? Unless Duke received an award message? I believe there may be one of them about having so many posts, and therefore a major contribution.

    There is Top Contributor when you get to 112 points.(is it a role though?) This is the top spot and higher than Prominent. But the final accolade is the siggy when you go to TES Towers and get the sword on the shoulder like Lenny Henry.

    But there is one other regular poster who reached the status of General Irritant some time ago.

    As you are yet to possess a signature I don't see why I should listen to anything beyond this point.

    Damn I missed it, sorry sir, does that mean I have to whitewash something.

    I'm standing to attention now, in my jammies if that makes any difference.

    Maybe they are now inventing new awards because so many people are getting to the top of the existing list.
    I have no idea where I stand on the list and don't give a flying.
    But when I get to a suitable moment Duke I will give you the appropriate salute ;)

    My boots are shiny, I'm ready for anything as long as it doesn't involve going outside.

    Perhaps it means you stand out because of your unusual spelling.

    I don't give "a flying"?
    Nah. Thought you were someone I once knew but no way would he have used an expression like that. Oh well...

    I think Oldie should deliberately try to spell words wrongly. At least he'd be in with a chance now and again.

    112 points! I've got 2. At least now I know what they're about.
