Well, Cheap Ruby is 10, I'm reckoning on 10,000 for Fonseca '63, so a few more than that. This is subject to change.

I resent being Cruz Ruby!

In protest, I will not post again until I am elevated to an improved status :evil:

You can't get an improved status until you post again... you need 10

Hi Alex,

We all had to do the walk of shame. Best thing is to close your nose, take a deep breath and produce 10 posts as quick as you can. It'll leave a nasty aftertaste for a while, but you have plenty of time to wash that away with some 'cheap ruby'.

I've just gone Noval. This is the first level that I actually enjoy drinking and would choose to buy even if it were not on offer.

'Snot on the list, but I can stick it in somewhere - before or after Warre's?

Change of plan - it's in, I'm just not saying where

Now I've been thinking about this and I've decided that I just don't believe you - think the creationism vs evolution debate.

What evidence have I got that you've all been through the Cruz Ruby phase of evolution before me? I look at the status of people on the members list and I see no-one who has evolved past Cruz Ruby. I see people who have the status of Cruz Ruby and people who don't.

I propose an alternative theory, that somewhere on this forum there is a person known only as "The Creator". He decides on the status to give each member and only he decides when this status changes to something better. Therefore I am preparing to pilgrimage to the Sky Blue City with several worthy offerings and will petition said Creator to change my status once I have presented these offerings.

If my approach works and you are all wrong about your status changing with the number of posts that you make then you will see my status change very soon, as soon as I reach the Sky Blue City!

Just wait and see who's right!!

Alex :?

This sounds fair:

Which 3 forum-ites are you going to pick up along the way, Dorothy? Sorry, I meant Alex?

The Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow?

I thought I'd look for the Bishop of Norwich, someone who knows the Bishop of Norwich and also take my pet dog (actually, cat since I don't have a dog - but I can call the cat Toto if it helps). I haven't decided on the third person but will happily consider any helpful suggestions.

To help solicit volunteers I thought I should mention that I plan to take as offerings Noval 1931, Nacional 1963 and 1966, Taylor 1927 and Croft 1945.

Of course, if the offering idea doesn't work then I guess the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Toto and me will just have to drink the bottles ourselves.....

Todd,

You just have to keep posting and you will soon evolve into something more acceptable :cool:

What, you mean no need to bring you that bottle of Croft 1945 that I have taken out of my cellar? You'll upgrade me without me bringing you that bottle of Quinta do Noval 1931?

Just for posting one more message?

I'm not sure my code of personal ethics will allow me to accept such a gift. You might be trying to corrupt me.

No, I think I will refuse to allow you to upgrade me just for posting another message. Honestly, if I allowed such a thing then where would we all be in a few months time?

I see the Creator has a sense of humour! I take it that no-one else will be permitted to post the right number of messages to be able to achieve this same exalted status.

It appears that somebody is abusing their privileges and making up ports that don't exist. It's only because he knows what is around the corner.

Back to the subject

So, I've just graduated from Cruz Ruby to Cheap Ruby. This raises a couple of questions:

The first is embedded in the discussions above and possibly elsewhere, and that is, is there a list anywhere telling us how many posts we need to achieve each level, or is it a closely guarded secret, bordering on something made up by admin as That Exulted Person goes along?

Secondly, how bad is Cruz Ruby? I've never had it, but the fact that it's worse than Cheap Ruby actually makes me want to head to Lidl (I'm guessing) and buy a bottle.
