I'm open to community contributed ideas. Doum sits just under my radar having been here for a long time but posting relatively rarely.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

rare (adj.1) "unusual," late 14c., "thin, airy, porous;" mid-15c., "few in number and widely separated, sparsely distributed, seldom found;" from Old French rere "sparse" (14c.), from Latin rarus "thinly sown, having a loose texture; not thick; having intervals between, full of empty spaces."

rare (adj.2) "undercooked," 1650s, variant of Middle English rere, from Old English hrere "lightly cooked," probably related to hreran "to stir, move, shake, agitate," from Proto-Germanic *hrorjan (source also of Old Frisian hrera "to stir, move," Old Saxon hrorian, Dutch roeren, German rühren, Old Norse hroera), from PIE root *kere- "to mix, confuse; cook."

Thanks!

I was thinking that if I cleared 500 posts, I could change the rank to something I picked. I was hoping to pick something along the lines of "slow learner", because even "Science Officer" sounds too well-informed for me. Instead, an Admin will pick it? But only if I'm "interesting". I guess I won't hold my breath. (In space, no one can hear you holding your breath.)
