I woke up today in a playful mood, and put together an idea I peeled from a game I used to play (before I decided sinking time into a writing career was a more productive use of my time).
To participate, use the code below to place a badge in your signature according to what league you place in (copper, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, master, and grandmaster). It's not a perfect science, so just estimate your average total sales, and decide what league you place in. List it here. We can see where other people are at, and find the motivation to keep on writing so that we can get "promoted" to a higher league.

Paste the code into your signature after your last book, but before your website, twitter links.

CLASS BADGES INSTRUCTIONS: Paste the code and adjust the year in the code to get the right badge--In other words, change 1990 to fit the year you started writing. The following are the badges I've found so far for class year. Not every year is available--following years are: 1985, 1990-1999, 2001-2020

Copper? Why not Bronze?  also, you have a typo in Grandmaster.

My Starcraft 2 rank before I had to quit playing to save my wrists for writing was Gold.  ;)

I don't know. I haven't checked my sales in a while. Last month it was copper bronze probably. I don't check on a daily basis. I pretty much don't check until money comes in and then only if the amount seems weird.

I was a strong Silver for the last few months, but late April and so far in May I've dipped down into Bronze league. :(
Although actually, that's only accounting for Amazon sales. Across all retailers I'm a strong Silver/Gold, so let's go with that!

At least I'm doing better at writing than I did when I tried playing Starcraft online. :D

I'm not sure where I fall into this. Usually, I'd say bronze, but then last week, I had 70 sales of one book that happened on a weekend, so that kind of screwed things up (in a good way).
