Question from a user:

I wanted to change my rank in my profile but i am unable to change my rank as it is showing 'tanktop cleaner'. can you send me some instructions to change my rank in the profile.


Your rank as a user of the forum is not an option to change in your profile. As on the ship, it is on The Common Rail, rank is earned, here, by the number of posts to the forum - as in, how much one contributes to the community.

Below is the ranks scale and how many posts it takes to earn it.

Bilge Dweller 2
Tanktop Cleaner 10
Deck Plate Wanderer 20
Leak Patrol 30

Chief Engineer 200
Superintendent 325
Fleet Engineer 500

Why is engineer on day work a higher rank than officer of the watch?

uuuuh, good question. Geeez I always like these questions that challenge me to explain my instinct.

I would have to say that they get to sleep the night, generally, as opposed to sitting a watch, therefore less wear and stress, higher rank.
