A graycel or greycel (formally called a recruit) is a user on the forum (formerly who has 499 or less posts on the forum. They are called graycels because their username is shown in gray text. Once they have posted 500 posts, they are no longer a graycel and have achieved Officer rank on the forum.

Stigma[edit | edit source]

There is a lot of stigma against graycels on Users often might spell graycel as "GrAYcel" to make fun of graycels. If a graycel types a thread that incels disagree with, users might reply with "typical GrAYcel thread" or "ok GrAYcel". Sometimes when a non-graycel types a thread that users think is dumb or noob-ish, people respond with "GrAYcel-tier thread". If a graycel ever types a controversial thread that is likely to be featured on IncelTear (an anti-incel subreddit), users might show the graycel's number of posts and join date. If a graycel had just joined or joined long ago but is still a graycel, users will worry this might be an infiltrator from IncelTear trying to screenshot their own threads on IncelTear. As a result, users often are suspicious toward graycels.

Rules[edit | edit source]

  • You earn one star per 100 posts, up to 5 stars.
  • Once you get 500 posts your rank and color changes, and you reset to one star again.
  • For each rank you need to have been registered one extra week on the site, this is so spamming to skip ranks isn't possible.
  • You can see all ranks in the Members section's sidebar.
  • If you have the post count + registered time required for a rank, be patient; the 'upgrade' process runs every hour.

This is not entirely true as there is an exception in the Overlord > Paragon gap which is 5,000 not 500.

  • Although this ought to mean a star accrues every 1000 posts not every 100, this is not the case, meaning 5-star Overlord status happens at 5500 and there is no distinction between that all the way up to 9999.

5 stars are presumably not seen often for lower ranks (or at least not shown for LONG) due to the auto upgrade, unless it is delayed by the weekly limit except for spammers. It's more often seen in Overlords/Paragons due to achieving it long before upgrade (for Overlords) or there being no higher rank (for Paragons) Legend lists rank in descending order
