Good evening everyone, I just got home from a long two week trip to missippi for military training. Now before I left, this site was shut down for what I remember as being under maintenance. A few things are looking diffrent. What qualifies some members as senior, or junior members? I dont remember those encaptions being there before. I found out that they will be deploying my unit late next year. I hope they will at least let me work in the machine shop on the base I will be assigned to.

First, thanks for serving our country.

Next. Yes, a lot of changes, some are even welcomed,NOW. You are luckie you missed that mess.
As for the How many posts it seems to be over 100,unfortunately it isn't Time on board, or number of "relative" posts,IMHO.

I have wondered about this too. I have seen "members" that had as little as 47 posts and "junior members" that have upwards of 100. It is not a big deal to me but there are a lot of things that are not clear about how this system works. I really enjoy it though and love to see what everyone else is doing. When I get settled in my new digs I will have some stuff to show too.

Possibly, # of posts, divded by # of days of membership equalls # of posts per day ratio. Thus the higher ratio would change status?

To bad we don't have the "rate a member" feature turned on with this board. That would be interesting with this group... would you be in the cool kids group??????????????? ;)

I probably wouldn't, according to some folks.:D

From what I've read, It would ruin a man's reputation to claim to be part of THAT group!

I believe the default to reach senior member status on this forum software is 100 posts.

Hmmm,Is there an echo in here? ;)

The default is 100 but it can be changed to anything the forum admin wishes. Apparently some change has been made since the default is for anyone with less the six posts to be given "newbie" status and I haven't seen that. So, it may be 100 or it may not.

I like my number of "relative posts" idea.

As a side note... how many licks DOES it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? :confused:

I believe the owl came up with three. Has this proven to be the definative answer?

so far...no one has ever said any different....I guess that makes the owl correct by default. That being said, my own experience suggestes a number a few orders of magnitude higher.

Russ, how the heck do you know that terminology? too much time on the gaming sites i'd say :D

imo being a senior member goes far beyond the recognition of one who is superior at machining and with a higher level of mechanical ability and is really indicative of an all round first class chap...its a special club for only the worthy. unless of course he got there by spam and post whoring (like this)!

LOL! No it's from a couple of the other sites I hang out on (4X4 related).
They have some where you have to have a high number of posts to get certain privileges (use "for sale" sections, post pictures, etc.)
Some people "post whore" just to build up their post count.
It gets pretty ridiculous. Some people post each word of a sentence on a seperate post. Then they get flamed unmercifully :D

BurgerKing also.

As a machinist I'm very junior, although I'm senior in age. I get a lot more from this board than I give. The board gives me a senior designation, I will acept that as a reference to my age.
