Let's not tiptoe around this. The Ubers ladder kind of blows. This is certainly a huge problem, and one that we'll be attempting to rectify here. Post a fresh alt here and hop on the ladder. Users who can get to 1500 points on their fresh alt with receive temporary hops on #ubers. Do it consistently and they may become perma hops. Users who can consistently reach #1 may be further rewarded. You may register multiple alts, but make sure they have not been used before, and try to keep it from being excessive. Do not register a second alt until your first one has been used. Do this enough and you might get forum-based awards as well.
