Thoughts? They might need a little more cleaning up, really. The RDM isn't married to the greyscale color scheme, that's just the one that popped into his head.

I can barely see the G on the dark blue background, but at least the white/light grey part looks cool.
Maybe that's a sign we need a new background colour?

And this is how they look on the light blue.

Maybe the Groove gradient should end short of black to make it more readable.

I think the G Groove looks better on the dark blue background. Also, the filling up for level 1 is in the opposite direction from the other grooves.

The bar colour is spot on but maybe the wording (G Groove) should be SG orange? (S Groove was red, SG Groove was orange and red).

Saw Man of TXT yesterday. He said again that he'll give me the rank bar files and also that he'll look in to removing the spam warning that Google gives. The forum is backed up, btw.

FAO RDM. I've forwarded you the email Man of TXT sent me today. It has just one image in it, but apparently it opens up (in Fireworks??). Dunno if it's any good?

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

The RDM has all sorts of legit excuses. His brand new laptop shipped with a broken touchpad and had to go back for warranty repairs...and still hasn't come back. After a month.

If we continue with the G Groove at 250 posts per rank, I think we'll reach above even my post count pretty soon. Thoughts on reducing the girth between the latter SG Groove ranks so we can make those in the G Groove smaller too?

Like adding more ranks to SG groove somewhere? Probably doable.

Nah. Just making the SG Groove not last as long so The post increments of G Groove can be 100 or lower rather than 250.

Why would we do that? Isn't it good to have some unexplored ranks for awhile?

It's just that it's likely that nobody will ever make it onto them (and if they do, it'll only be you). I have enough ranks now to far surpass my own postcount, if I keep in the 250 post increments.

The RDM might make it too!

Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is I'd like to at least not be immediately moved to the last rank. It's been along time since I had to climb ranks (since whenever I reached Romeo Dunn) and it would be fun to do that again.

What if you dial it down to 200 or 150?

Then the increments are lower than the last few ranks in SG Groove. That's the main reason I wanted to change the SG Groove.

Okay, well what does it take you to if you change those ranks back to 100 and make the G groove ranks 150?

I've just noticed that two SG Groove ranks are set are the same postcount. That's an extra one at least.
Making the whole of the SG Groove 100 posts a rank (rather than moving to 200) moves the final rank from 6600 instead of 7600. Maybe I could make them 125 after the tipping point.

That's not very much. Even at 250 that doesn't get past my current postcount (after adjusting last SG ranks). How did you figure it would go past your current postcount?

At 125 that would only go to 9100 posts. That's not terribly high.

That's still not enough to take it past Damien's post count at 7600 + 33 x 250, so I have to assume there's more to come?

The RDM thinks it's going to be 99 total ranks in the groove. A 💯 th can probably be improvised.

That'll still give me lots of ranks to climb even with only 125 posts per rank, so sounds good.

So 125 instead of 250 per rank?
I need ideas for funny rank names and time at work to set them (not as easy, as I need to put them on Photobucket and link from there).

Hey RDM. When you get the chance, could you please upload the next set of rank bars? Got a few ideas for ranks now.
