Should there be a countdown for G2G6 Pilots?

+14 votes
I suppose there weren't all that many Pilots when the distinction was made, but since we now have an astronaut, and there are getting to be a pretty large number of pilots, it might be fun to have a countdown to liftoff

Oooo shall I get the champagne - normally with a launch/liftoff there's a bottle about.

To be honest I've yet to find out where/how/who are Pilots/Astronauts except when a name appears in the G2G forum.

No idea how the points build up except that they appear.

How many Pilots/Astronauts are there?

Who, how does one qualify for the ?

Do we request it or it just appears?
Dave, if you click on the Members tab above, you can see the list.
Many thanks Anne B - it's been months since I looked at that Tab - when I first looked I didn't understand it.  Now it all makes sense :)

I just noticed you had another question in there about How one gets the badge and if it just appears. One of the Sysops pays some attention to this and awards the pilot badge when people go over the number of points needed. Since it's a real live human doing the awarding they occasionally miss someone.

We have 48 members who are listed as "Pilots" and only one "Astronauts". The designation is based on G2G points and you earn them by asking, answering, and upvoting on questions. Down votes subtract points and comments have no effect on points.

I actually meant this answer to be a comment, oops.
