I just look at it as a silly, fun little thing.  No real usefulness, but what does it hurt?

says the guy who's lapped us all 4 times - ba-zing!  ;) ;D

Good thing you look at it as fun since it now seems to have mysteriously vanished... or has it?

I view the cellerman as a skilled job.  At least in England it is.  Enough so that there was an excellent talk on it at the NHC.

Kegwasher would be the entry level position.

I see where you're going with this and think I agree but I'm not sure that keg washing requires no skill... cleaning may be the highest priority skill any of us should have.   :D

Exactly. My point with the "does it matter" comment was a reaction to people taking it perhaps a bit too seriously.

In my house, I'm all levels (deep, huh?). Especially cellarman. My wife won't go down there.

LOL Denny's now a "brewmaster"... just like the rest of us. ;D

It is fun How about next year at this time when more people have thousands of posts? Couldn't there be some "hidden levels" albeit with amusing titles? For example such as @ 4000 might produce something witty and random based on the high post count.

I think  Denny Level = Denny's total post count ...as a moving target

...that way no one will ever acheive his level.  :-\

I for one... never want Denny to be behind me.  :D

Yeah - Denny level is where-ever Denny is at.
