Not promoted

Not sure how the promotion works think its the "system" that decides promotion. I'm sure you'll be promoted soon dude.

    I was gone for the weekend and could not post but I posted loads since I came.... Then u see people with only 30 posts promoted, sorry for the argument just annoyed

    I had full rights from my first post but then I'd spent years of my life on other EA forums so its probably cumulative with your EA/Origin account.

    I read somewhere that it has to do with the amount of posts leading up to the promotion day.
    So as you were away for the weekend it skipped you, even though you are more active than many, including myself.

    Its definitely a flawed system. it should really take into account your activity over the previous month. But i suppose with the amount of monitoring that it would need to do with all of the different users, it would be a waste of EA's server space...or whatever gets used up with monitoring for two or three days, instead of a month...

    Yeah, I got promoted with less than 35 posts. I wasn't even expecting it.... saw I had a PM from weeks before saying I was promoted. I hadn't been posting much.

    But I'm not complaining! It just made me post more. ;)

    You are promoted I see your Homer avatar. I have seen mods say that post count doesn't matter in promotion, it's random. I also saw someone with 10 posts promoted, LOL.

    I don't think its completely random, I think you just have to be active for a while. And by active I mean just a post per week or so. But congrats! I just finally got promoted too.

    I didn't get promoted but I figure I don't post much. I'm just a lurker :mrgreen: who comes here everyday looking at information or ideas for my town. Also look at comments and see what all you guys are talking about :D

    I think it has more to do with "content" than number of posts.....the hint is in your promotion message.
    Answering other forum members questions is helpful to EA :wink:
    Oh and congrats on your promo

    Anyone know if promotions are permanent, or if you can lose it after not posting for a long time?

    Maybe it's because you're not very active? 28 posts in over 2 months. I joined on the 16th of this month and was promoted on the 22nd, but post a fair bit, cause I have a backwards sleeping pattern and up all night with nothing to do lol

    I do exactly the same thing, up all night, sleep half the day! I've got till Monday to change back around before my husband gets home from work for his week off, cause he's usually waking up by the time it's my sleep time.

    I tried changing mine so I can sleep at night by staying up all night like usual, but instead of going to sleep in the morning, I stayed up all day so I'd be wrecked by night time. But that back fired cause I passed out at 4pm and was awake at midnight lol I have given up trying to now lol

    Lol, I've tried that many a time, I usually last till lunch time tho, and back up at dinner time to feed animals and do other stuff. I think I've given up trying a long time ago! Lol I've always been a night owl for as long as I can remember
