  • More member "titles"?

    Is there any way to add more member titles based on how many posts individuals have contributed to the forum? I'm still relatively new here, yet my posts are marked with "senior member" which is the same as the forum veterans who have posts numbering in the thousands. It's not really a critical issue or anything, but I think it would be a nice way to recognize the people who have made this site a useful resource, I know I've benefited greatly from their knowledge and expertise these past few months.

      Sorry but titles are just a bunch of letters in a row. It's the content of a posters message that really counts. I'd rather receive good sound advice from someone with only a dozen posts under their belt than gibberish from a mega poster.

        Like all of Woussko's totally worthless howling posts. ARRROOOOOOOO

        With that out of the way some of the junior members have posted some very valuable info for all of us to read.

            Why even bother with "titles" in the first place?

            We track the number of posts to massage egos that feed on that stuff....so titles should be moot!

            I also agree with the only important thing here is the content of the post.
            You ask a question....

            you get the following.....yelled at for asking a stupid question, defended for asking a stupid question, some guy posting a comment starting out with "I don't have or know your question but my ball point pen has blue ink", misinformation, complaints that if I give you the answer I'll have to kill you, If I answer your question I won't be able to put food on my table, ......finally after all that either a veteran poster or a new member replies with the correct information you desire.....

            But then you fall flat by never following up with the results..

            It would be really nice to ask a question, identify the problem, get a reasonable response, then follow up with results...AH the art of problem solving....

            Then the next person can initiate a search when they have a question and actually find a solution eliminating so much duplication of effort....

              I see your point where good advice can come just as easily from someone who has posted 5 times as someone who has posted 5,000. If someone has been working a trade for the last 25 years, and just joined the forum yesterday, they are going to have the knowledge to answer a post well without a high post count. I also agree that turning it into some pointless posting race, or see who can attain the highest title would be a bad idea.

                        yeah.......how many posts you have doesn't mean a thing.

                              Or at one million posts you get your pick of prizes from behind one of three doors which hide some new and yet to be released RIDGID Tools.

                              Yes, you too could be the first on your block to own a multi-speed, waterproof, whiz-bang, thing-a-ma-jig that runs on battery or AC power in vibrant RIDGID orange and black.
                              "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
