I am sorry that I can give some details on it just now, but it was not sure if this info should be shared at all till the moment Frank started using the terms "officer" and "general" in public.
- There are 118 mio Protoi Alliance officers worldwide (only talking about incarnated people here).
- Your officer's rank depends on your loyalty to the Protoi Alliance and on the jobs you have accomplished up to date. We have no influence on that. We only forward the info we get.
- You can only become a general if you are an officer and apply for 3d active membership, suitability provided. (There are also a few more generals that were generals before incarnating. Their rank stays untouched by the recent changes).
- You can only become a general if and as soon as your application is approved.
- Only people, who we know personally (includes also email exchange) or have supported the community and the forum in any way are eligible for generals. We have NO influence on the results.
Up to date there is a total of 5.3 billion skills available and 122 millions macros (=combination of skills).
As already stated elsewhere there are 24 officer ranks and 6 general ranks.
Every officer and general has access to an own skib (=skillbox) and a handbook (according to Drack there is also some audio version of the handbook available).
~2% of the total skills and macros are available to officers independently of their rank. This doesn't change the higher you get.
Generals can use a much wider spectrum of skills according to their rank:
- 21% * generals
- 26% ** generals
- 42% *** generals
- 62% **** generals (9 up to date)
- 83% ***** generals (2 up to date)
- 100% ****** generals (Protoi, no one else up to date)
For lurkers and other readers:
If you want to know if you are an officer or even a general, you'll need to ask for your classification first. This is NOT for free! Classification costs 10 € per person (i.e. if you want to have 2 people checked then you'll need to send 20 € and so on).
If you are L1-L4 it is quite possible to be an officer. There are less than thousand L4 people around. Most of them have already upgraded to L3 or higher. If you are not an officer yet, you'll become 1st rank officer straight away if you apply for 3d active membership (no cost!).
G1 and G2 will be able to join the Protoi Alliance in future. We need some time to create the necessary applications. Please let us know and be patient.
