Member Classes
New Member, Junior Member, Preferred Member...

How do they define these member levels under our names (to the left of our post). At the time of this posting I'm a "Junior Member". What does this mean? How do I advance?

The levels change as you make more posts Filipe. Either by responding to threads "post reply" or starting your own "post new topic".

Is there a list anywhere of how many posts it takes to get up a ranking?


 12:41 am on Apr 30, 2002 (gmt 0)

Not that it really matters (you don't get a raise until you make "Admin" anyhow, and Brett hand-picks the Admins...), but here is one of the many recent threads where this has been discussed & explained:

Filipe...in short

Junior Member = somebody who still has a social life

Preferred Member = somebody with a social life that is definitely suffering from too much time online

Senior Member = somebody with no social life at all

I'm sorry, could you please define the term "social life" for me? The words seem familiar, but I couldn't find anything useful in the WiseNut SERPs. Most of the first page is related to "the Social Life of Documents" and paper gives me a rash now. As does natural light. And raw vegetables.

Also, remember "Foo posts don't count", and if your "RC smiley quotient" (RCSQ) goes over 2.25, you get docked 10%, rounded up, of your post count

Hey Eric - I resemble that remark.

Seriously though you do not get credit for Foo posts, unless I believe you start the discussion and we mods do a bit of talking about things behind the curtain, helping to keep thinks running smooth and those donít count so yes, senior members and mods probably donít have much of a social life ;)

And Filipe, you can keep working towards the corner office with a view!

<added>hahaha TallTroll - we're hitting the button at the same time!

TallTroll, I don't know much about how others rate being social, but if it is confined to attendance at the various pub and bar conferences, I'm not sure that counts!

Hummm, if you would be kind enough to update me as to what my 'social' calender of events is, I fear I have lost it again.....

*sigh* :(

Im just glad I still have a social life, cause I really wasnt aware of it for the longest time.

Lets see, If I do the math right;

12 hours at work + 1 Hour drive time per day on average + 2 hours misc crap (ie walmart, buying gas, passing gas :o ) + 1 hour Diablo + 2 hours deleting spam :) + 2 hours total in day for eating + 1.5 hours for webmaster world *sigh* (addicted now :) ) leaves me 2.5 hours for sleep and social time.

CRAP..... I need to post ALOT more, you guys have given me the wrong level, I obviously am a senior member......... ;)

Does it count as a post each time I reply to a topic in a thread or is the count by my username just for topics I start?

welcome to WebmasterWorld.

The only Forum where the Thread Starter is the only one to get credited is Foo. In alll other fora you will get credit for all your posts, regardeless of whether you start the thread or are contributing to the thread.

What about 'WHOOPS' posts?!

(I don't do them on purpose, honest)
