Request for promotion to Gold Status (Classicist)

Please consider my application for promotion to Gold Classicist Status. Following is a copy of my current stats:

Active games: 1
Pending games: 0
20 finished games
1 solo wins (5.00% solo rate)
12 draws (60.00% draw rate)
Longest streak of wins/draws (premium only) = 9
0 surrenders (rank games) (0.00% surrender rate)
0 surrenders (norank games) (0.00% surrender rate)
951/952 turns taken (99.89% consistency rate)

Game type played:
Regular: 19 (95.00%)
Anonymous Countries: 0 (0.00%)
Anonymous Players: 1 (5.00%)
Gunboat: 0 (0.00%)
Public Press Only: 0 (0.00%)

Suggestion: if Classicist is a recognized group, it would be very helpful to have the ranking included in player stats (along the lines of Star Ambassador). It would be a great way to help evaluate potential rivals in new games and would serve as a promotion encouraging more players to apply.

Thank you in advance for considering my request.

Hi Latanst,

The requirements for Gold are as follows:
20 or more games finished.
No unjustified surrenders in most recent 15 games.
At least 98% consistency (i.e. no more than 1 in 50 turns missed).
No sanction from the site admin for site violation within the last 8 months.

You have:
29 completed Rank/NoRank games (plus one 'friends' game)
No surrenders...ever
A 99.90% consistency rate
No sanctions

An excellent record. Happy to approve your application for promotion to Gold. Congrats! Once you complete 21 additional Rank/NoRank games you will be eligible for promotion to Platinum.

As to your suggestion, I will send a PM to the higher-ups. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing that happen but I can see some potential issues too with having a "tag-line" which denotes a player's current Classicist standing staying current with what it actually is.

EDIT: You could choose to add a signature to your profile which notes your current Classicist level. This is done by going to your 'User Control Panel' and then clicking on the 'Profile' tab. Under the 'Profile' tab, on the left of page, there is an option to 'Edit Signature'.

Thank you very much for confirming the promotion!

Thank you also for the feedback, well noted. I had been planning to update my profile signature to show 'Gold' status and will hope to do so within a couple of days--many thanks for the reminder as this is a useful alternative prior to any change to the "tag-line" rules.

Very excited about the promotion, thank you again.

Best wishes,
