    Wink Identity Crisis!!!!!!

    What happend to all the different titles that used to be attached to our names? Now everyone under 100 posts is just a member...and those of us that keep jamming things in are "just" "senior members"

    Default SENORITY????

    Hey Stan, I wondered about that too. I noticed it a while ago. Now I feel like I need a walker or a cane and a bottle of bottle of Gerital.

    And obviously I'm pretty new to the forum, but why does mine just say "memberzone subscriber"?

    Does that just mean I'm one of the few guys sucked into paying 20 bucks.

    Talking

    I've wondered about that myself.....ever since the MembersZone started, we lost our identity. Heck Stan...I don't even remember what the mileposts were, as far as # of posts went. Major member, new member....?????

    How does one become "Old Fart?"

    Post LEFT OUT 1

    I forgot about "Member's Zone Subscriber"...maybe that is for less than 50???

    Hmmmmm....NJFFS_A16...I can't remember either...But I do remember that in all the change over a couple of us lost a few numbers as far as posts go (but I think they fixed that). However...not all that fond of "Old Fart"

    Still think they should make some more of "Contributing Editors", "State Editors", "Regional Reporters" or something.... After all...even though we do get into trouble.... (I have been on my best behavior for almost a year!!!! .....We do make a lot of positive contributions, address many important issues, and pass on news that may otherwise go unheard of.

    Look at all of us, in the Top 20......

    We are all "members." That does kinda bother me. As a "senior member," I'm feeling a little flacid.

    Default Junior member.....

    Ok..I understand the Senior Member grumblings...but do you think that there's any way we can rename 'Junior Member' to 'New Member' or something like that for people who AREN'T actual juniors. I keep seeing that title under my screen name....and I keep thinking: 'This one time, in Band Camp...."

    Once again....the above views are my own and not that of my department. (And probably should not be construed as having any real meaning, whatsoever!)

    I think that the new cutoff is 30 posts for 'Member' status (no pun intended!!). When I posted the above is was a 'Junior' (poster, that is!) and now it says member. I guess I should've waited, eh?!?!?! Later!

    Adze is well over 1000 posts, and he is still a "Memberzone Subscriber". I think they are just trying to slip in the free advertising?

    If you had 1000 or more posts, you used to be part of the elite 1000+ club. Now just a senior member. Grouped with people with 100 or more.

    Any thoughts/comments from the Webteam. I'd be kinda interested in what they have to say.

    You are quite right Puffy!!! Why should we be associated with the lower posters?!?

    mcaldwell, "Memberzone Subscriber" are for people who can access the Member's Zone.


    I like our old system...I would be what? a General right about now? LOL

    Major used to be one of the levels, right?
