What happened to BPL Ranks??? on 04/04/2010 21:25:14 MDT Print View

Sooo, weird, but my BPL Rank was 1.50 yesterday, and now it is 0.23... what's going on??? Lifetime member and regular poster, wilderness school attendee, spent a near fortune on BPL gear... I'm kind of upset.

You are the only one that can view your rank. They have been removed from public display and meant nothing anyway.

I know I know I know... it is meaningless, and being upset is irrational, but it is still visible... click on the Community Gear Lists link on the right...

More bad news then....it's not going anywhere. Mine dropped from 2.7 or so to .39 around January and just now made it up to .40

It is the true price we pay to be Lifers...embrace the pain.

Cheers!

Whoo hoo!
I had no idea that the gear list was in order by rank.
So at 3.11, I'd be in the top 20 if I posted a gear list!

Now I gotta do it just so I can start pulling rank on nOObs!
Damn...top 20.
You just made my night James.

It's hardly meaningless when you're a winner!

Why do people always have to write noobs "nOObs" anyway?

Craig - Geez, do you have to kick a man when his rank is down? Don't you think the .23 is enough of an embarrassment?

LOL. Yeah, what it is to be a loser... Jonathan, glad I'm not the only one slammed by being a lifer! Are there any lifers in the top 50, I wonder???

Some of the 2.x and 3.x'ers have blank lists and, like, 3 posts. Soooo unfair.

How I Feel... ;-)

Arghhh!

"It is the true price we pay to be Lifers"

That's what happens when you remove all incentive for them to keep you happy. You shoulda stuck with year by year. He!!, I'd pay month to month if they'd let me. ;}

I have no way to post a gear list so I guess my rank is "0".

Im gonna guess that you had a yearly membership and even though you bought a lifetime membership your yearly one expired. I have got a couple of emails saying my yearly membership was about to run out and yesterday was my last day and now my bpl rank went from 2.66 to .41.

Im never gonna catch Ryan.

Imagine the BPL ranks are like a game of golf - - lowest score wins.

Click "My Account" at the top right of at least some of your BPL screens. Your rank appears along with other account information.
