I'm currently an Asternaut. Is the next rank an Ensign? How many posts do I need for that?

<<A person who posts on the Asterisk* board is immediately considered to be a (virtual) asternaut, as opposed to an astronaut. Asternaut is not misspelled -- it is the diminutive of the word astronaut. Although only a few are selected to become astronauts, anyone with a web browser can become an asternaut.

After 10 posts, an asternaut is elevated to become (also) an Ensign, and after 100 posts, a Science Officer.

At 500 posts, an asternaut is judged to be legally insane, and is therefore allowed to choose their own rank (within reason).

Deactivated account for spamming the board to achieve the 100 post rank. Don't do that.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.
