hello all. i've been reading this site for a long time now and only just got around to registering. i must say thank you for maintaining this incredible resource; i have learned a hell of a lot through WW.
IMO one of the weirdest things about Webmaster World (besides not indicating "visited" links) is when it comes to your rank ("New User," "Senior Member," ect.) it apparently goes by the number of posts a user makes instead of how long they've been registered, e.g., I've been registered since 2006 but with a modest 33 posts I'm still a "New User."
It would seem to me this encourages a lot of "me too!" posts and not posts that add significant contributions to a thread.
