Andrew, What are the member titles all about?
« on: April 12, 2004, 05:43:59 PM »
Please forgive me if this is off topic (not a suggestion) or if it is located in a FAQ somewhere that I am oblivious to... What are the titles for memebers (i.e. - Jr. Member, Full Member, etc.) and the requirments for each? Is it based off of time being a meber, number of posts?

I'm pretty sure it's based off of the number of posts. You get to Full Member around 15 posts or so. I hear Sr. Member is 100. Whoo-hoo!

It is based on the number of postings, which indirectly relates to the amount of spare time times the interest in law school divided by typing speed.

The names are a standard feature of the software that powers the board.  They're changable at my whim, which explains the recent change from "Senior Member" to "Senior Citizen".  Just a little joke.

The categories are based on number of posts - but that too is changeable at my whim.

I never paid too much attention to the membership categories, but I suppose it's good actually to show people's seniority (in terms of number of posts) as it gives everyone a chance to develop a sort of reputation.

Sorry, i couldn't help it--I need rep points too.

Andrew, what are the cutoffs, by the way? Is there anything above Sr. Citizen? 500 posts and you turn into Zeus?

I made the next category impossibly high.  I didn't want people trying to "get there" by just posting a bunch of pointless sentences.

It was called "God Member" actually - but that's dumb.  I'll think of a better name.

I think three categories is plenty though - either you're new or you've been here a while or you're one of the most active participants.  That's all the categories need to say.

NO, I must have room to improve myself!   :D
