Default I think it is based upon the number of posts you make.

The more posts made means you get the most 'member'

Sounds like something a heterosexual man might not like to aspire too

The settings changed and then reverted. It pays to stay on your toes around here...

The "promotion" occurs at something rather minimal like 30 posts, so it's hardly a permanent condition. Personally, I can't see what all the fuss is about, and I imagine it will be a very distant hangover memory in less than a week.

I read the "MWR promotion policy" as we start out as Member (JG), and then we get promoted to Member, huh??

What's the next grade after Member ? One has to plan ahead

And as for you old timers wondering why you have had to start out as Member (JG) and work your way up the promotion ladder, you have nothing to complain about .....wait until you hear about Bob's planned "Member Candidate School" .... that future MWRines must complete before registration is even authorized!!

I'm going for a minimalist approach, to see how long I can remain a Junior.

At my age, I'm happy to have a junior anything. Just think what'll happen when it grows up.
