I agree with Emily.
A small difference - I was aware that the ranking system would not carry over into the actual Narrative platform.
But several community members (myself included) had expressed a while back that it would make little sense if the platform launched without extracting some form of basis for reputation from the very important activity that takes place up until launch.
I had assumed that our user accounts on the main platform would indeed be credited with some form of recognition of our actions here. I try not to assume too much in life, but I did assume this because it seems so natural that this would be the case.
