It is done (afaik) by the amount of posts you make :)
I don't know when Brett's birthday is, sorry :)

Glengara, maybe you had 200 posts but some got wiped somewhere along the line
You will be preferred once again soon ;)
No, something has changed with the member status. I remember a week or so I ago I finally made Senior Member (300th post) and am now a Preferred Member. A demotion? Okay, what did I do wrong?
Maybe he changed where each status started/stopped and make some more rankings, couz we all know that we want new ratings all the time! Once you get to the top we want higher!
200 - Preferred
400 - Senior
There is a post in Foo about this... just a second. let me find it.
Hey, there should have been some sort of Grandfather Clause! ;)
Here it is, Brett formula for membership levels
$mtlevelonetitle = "New user";
$mtleveloneposts = "0";
$mtleveltwotitle = "Junior Member";
$mtleveltwoposts = "20";
$mtlevelthreetitle = "Full Member";
$mtlevelthreeposts = "80";
$mtlevelfourtitle = "Preferred Member";
$mtlevelfourposts = "200";
$mtlevelfivetitle = "Senior Member";
$mtlevelfiveposts = "400";
quick, post 4 replies in this thread ;)
My post count seems to have slipped - I looked at a saved page from feb 2 and it was 162. - noticed it because loss of "Preferred" status. I guess a reversion to a prior data set. No big deal, but had me questioning my sanity for a moment. :)
Yes, everyone thought it was time to slowly raise the bar a little bit again.
I suppose as a mere junior member, I shouldn't make a fluff post to bump up my count ;), but this discussion reminds me of a discussion I once heard between a distressed student and a professor.
Student: I don't understand how I got a D in your class.
Professor: The grade is based 50% on participation.
Student: But I often said things in class.
Prof: Yes, but not a single one of them was interesting.
