Title: Moving the goalposts?
Post by Secret Drinker on Today at 10:34
I now find myself an "MV Novice" instead of an "MV Newbie" (and looking around I see others in the same category).

Has Steve moved the goalposts, making the coveted Junior MV badge more difficult to achieve? Or has he just changed the category names? I think we should etc., etc.  (I typed "etc., etc." just then to save myself typing the full sentence which was " I think we should be told")*

Reminds me of Catch-22 where they kept raising the number of missions whenever you got anywhere near the target  ;)

Cheers

Paul

Here at MV we have a policy of continuous improvement, especially during this initial test phase  :)
The height of the bar remains unchanged (elbow height, of course), but I thought we ought to express things in English! -- Steve

I've just registered this afternoon and read almost all the messages (except the very very technical), and I am rather dismayed that Pete is classed as a Novice. Surely he gets immediate brigadier-general status, or why are we all here?

You're right, so I've given him a personal upgrade.

Aah but looking at Pete's profile page reveals that the host machine still really considers him an MV newbie!  
Subversive Computer!

Huh! This (http://www.peteatkin.com/cgi-bin/mv/YaBB.cgi?action=viewprofile;username=Tek_Painter) should show it who's boss!
