:)I just made my 100th post, and I was sure that was going to qualify me for Senior Member instead of Preferred Member. But it doesn't! What do I have to do? Write a book on this stuff? :)

I just had the exact same question. And now I have my 101st! :)

Apparently Foo posts (maybe for moderators?) don't count. :(

hehe - Foo posts don't count for anybody. It was the only way we could keep rc's post count from breaking the board as it cranked up odometer style.
Really - it's too keep the post count reflective of contributions to relevant SEO topics. It better represents the members contribution to SEO and webmaster issues.

Well, there is a bug, cuz that foo post counted. Maybe starting a foo topic counts. I dunno, but it did.

hmm - well, how about that. Perhaps I spoke too soon....maybe it is only mods. I can't remember ;)

Xoc is right... (it's just a little something for the true Foo supporters ;-)

Congrats Xoc and Webguerilla. Now that you have earned the stars on your shoulders, perhaps you'd like to join the halo lobby. We're lobbying for more stars every 200 posts and a halo when you reach 1000.

Oilman has made it very clear that he wants epaulettes -as a minimum. We're still in negotiations over the sword.

Nothing like nice full dress uniform to impress the ladies ;)

Or how 'bout a face at 500? LOL... or after 1000 posts, you get to pick your own icon? Maybe a change of hairstyle every 200 posts, with hair first being introduced at 200? Enough posts, and you graduate from the ranks of the faceless muppet people?

Ok, how many had to break out the dictionary? lol That's a term you don't hear thrown around in casual conversation much.

Former 2nd lt. Rencke begs to differ politely. Sir.

I believe most US officers just call them shoulder boards.
