Doesn't it take a little more that a few months to even have a chance of becoming a contributor? What's so special about being a contributor. I am on here to learn and eventually teach. Not to be ranked.

I'm not sure as to the actual amount of time it takes to become a contributor. Like was said earlier, I think it depends on how much you post and otherwise "contribute" to the site. Though there's no real guidelines for what that is anywhere that I can find.
Titles and ranks aren't really all that important to the functionality of the site. If you're here to learn, learn. Don't worry about that stuff.
Ranks are handy mostly for coven leaders I think. Knowledgable members can see when people have been marked a fluffy, of course we would be more wary of letting them into the coven as someone has taken the time to mark them as such.
I would question them much more than if someone who was ranked a novice applied.
Of course, the system is flawed, and I have seen people marked as fluffy who should not have been.
I tend to use the system only when people are vocally fluffy on chat or in the forums, or to rectify a mistake when someone has been labelled fluffy and are simply new to their practice, or have had an argument with the wrong person.
Simply so coven leaders have something more to go on- espescially if that person has never posted on this site before.
Interesting view Hadit, it would be nice to allow coven leaders to see who has been marked fluffy on their applications. As, I myself have to gander singly on their posts, and rate their preformances off that, but sometimes they don't even have the history. So even then it's a wage to allow them entry to the coven.
