So welcome to this site. No matter what I do I keep getting "Catastrophic Error" and "Debug Mode" on the screen.
Wrong Planet? Hell, wrong website!
And what's with this "Emu Egg" thing?
Hey I've got a great idea. How about making this all a lot LESS user friendly?

Jesus, is it that complicated?
I never got that critical error thing on this site before today, but if you get it, hit refresh!

That error is annoying though. Usually the site acts up at night and is better in the morning. Maybe it's just trying to tell me I should try to get some sleep.

THese errors are irritating.

"Emu Egg" is your ranking when you first join WP. Your rank is determined by how often you post on here.

Here is the list of rankings:

Emu Egg 0-8
Butterfly 9-17
Hummingbird 18-24
Tufted Titmouse 25-49
Yellow-bellied Woodpecker 50-74
Blue Jay 75-99
Raven 100-124
Snowy Owl 125-174
Pileated Woodpecker 175-199
Sea Gull 200-249
Tucan 250-299
Dienonychus 300-399
Velociraptor 400-499
Phoenix 500+

And when you reach 1000 posts, you have the option of creating your own ranking.

Tim

I rarely ever get that error message. Just a few hours ago. Emu egg is your ranking.

It's annoying, but with so many members it's understandable.

The default if you have a high number of posts is "Veteran" but once you reach 1000 you have the option of changing this to a name of your choice. You don't have to if you don't want to though.

usually that error means the database is being backed up
