Problem is I never had a chance to enjoy it, this would be on day 6 and at the end of the cay I'd be a midshipman or commander again. This is whay I voted yes to get rid of it. I think if you manage to achieve a level there should be nothing there to take it away, aside from loosing it through battle and such.
I don't know, I've always thought that ultimately in this game what should determine your rank is the breadth of your empire. It is very easy to pvp a higher ranking player and win, thus gaining tons of exp... but that isn't the only skill measured here.
Colonies, built or invaded, are what give this game it's complexity and depth. They produce hourly exp and rep, money, resources, and weapons. It only seems logical that the more of these things you have, the more successful you will be in the game- not just for a week, but for as long as you can maintain them.
If it takes you 6 days to reach a certain rank, and then you drop back down, and repeat this cycle for months on end, I can understand your frustration. But realize that just because score adjusts have been removed does not make you any better than you were before. Unless you keep expanding, you will almost always retain the same # rank, and when everyone caps out at 10 mil exp...
...what the hug kinda fun will that be?
