I got upgraded!

Post by Notmikeb » Sat Jul 11, 2015 6:28 pm

It seems I am no longer labelled "newbie" but am now a "member"! Are these labels based off of post count or did I just do something to please the Tercel Gods? Is this like joining a biker gang and I just got "patched in"? Does anyone know what the thresholds are?

And yes, I realize this is kind of silly but a man needs to have goals!

you have to have a special title for the one with the highest number of posts. Perhaps something along the lines of "suffering a form of mental illness".

BTW, would that still be me with the most posts?

wow, I am almost 2000 posts ahead of the next closest member! That should qualify as a special form of mental illness.

there should be at least another rank, since the highest ranking is only 500 posts, and there are a number of members with ten times that amount. They should have a special category just for them.

Perhaps have thresholds for number of posts at 500, 1000, and 5000 posts?

Ooh!! I got upgraded again! "Advanced member" now! Maybe soon I'll be savvy enough to actually answer questions instead of asking a bunch of them.
