I honestly don't think it matters as long as it fits the given parameters.

 

p.s. also fixed your location for you :smileyhappy:

Thanks for the light, Andy.

 

Out of curiousity, is actual geographical location required here?

I'm coming to this sooooo late -- but shouldn't the initial/earliest rank be something like "difference engine"? If I worked in marketing, I'd back this up by saying "Post in a forum: make a difference!". But I don't, and I think it's obvious why (I also know that it's not that kind of "difference" for a start.....).

Oh, ha! That would have been a great one, MG - I'll keep it in mind in case we revamp the ranks again!

JaneL - After so many people who are very competent and could be expert contributors to this forum have expressed that your ranking system is insulting, it would seem it is time to change it.  They have pointed out that your rankings are not even correct in the order of computer history regarding the order in which paper tape, punch card, and DOS were introduced.  It would seem if you want to depict level of experience you could have at least gotten the technology levels right.  Time to change it.  I am a new user, but had exactly the same reaction to "What's DOS?" as my ranking.  I worked on testing the joint development of Windows by IBM and Microsoft, so needless to say I not only know DOS but Windows intimately.  You really do not characterize me correctly with this ranking system.  I suggest something like "Community member since mm/dd/yyyy".

Since I started my IT career in the days of punch cards and paper tapes, it's entertaining when we get flack over the ranking system..

What's DOS? was placed first because Mark wouldn't let me put Moth there and I wanted something eye-catching. Nailed that!

The rank names don't mean anything at all other than an entertaining, random walk through tech history. I could have just as easily called them 1, 2, 3 etc. It's the formulas behind the names that matter.

We're looking into revamping the whole ranking system to include our Moto friends, so it's unlikely any changes will be made to the existing structure until then.

That's asinine.  I know what DOS is!  I know it so haard!

This is me participating in the hopes that I will move up in this world.
