I just want to say that this post is so pointless it should be considered clickbait. To get promoted within a gaming community you have to put in work and do something for the community. Being here for a year and only having 6 posts doesn't show much initiative. Become an admin, host events, do something that can help Defy, not just "I've been here for a year you might as well give me Veteran." Trace has most likely worked to get to where he is and it looks as if you've done nearly nothing. Put in some work and you'll probably be there in no time.
