    In my place of origin, i had a certain standing in the community. Over 3000 doctrinally pure posts of exceptional quality ensured that appropriate privileges were automatically available.

    Here, i find that i am reduced, not even regarded as a 'new member'..

    i notice that Stevens's seniority rating is already considerably in advance of my own, which is clearly ridiculous, especially when one takes into consideration the lower quality and often semi pornographic nature of many of his offerings.

    i protest at the evident injustice involved in this situation, and insist that appropriate steps are taken - perhaps a degree of positive discrimination (in favour of those from the unprivileged Moray Firth region) might be in order?

    I think that if you whip in another 10 posts you might become a New Member (I think I became one on the post I made before this one).

    How the blinkin flip has Keith got to 55 already?????? He's been here less time than me, but has more than double my post count. You really can't keep an obssessive poster down can you???

    Glad you're here Keith!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The output in a capitalist society is far higher than in a socialist one because people work harder. Furthermore, suppliers have to supply what the people want. Hence my 13,000 posts of smut, filth and innuendo in "the other place."

    Being unencumbered by the need to `work` to put bread and jam on the table, the `upper classes` have more time for `other things` (a bit like being retired) :blush: .

    Might I suggest simply removing the 'seniority' thingy and post count? They don't really mean a great deal.

    unless we can make a cunning pun (like we could on C+). ooh and how impressive is it that our top poster is a "junior member" :blush:

    You could always change your name to 'The Most Senior Member'. Then you will always be the most senior member. :blush:

    I can't help thinking there's two problems with this.
    One, in that you have a number of stars, some of which are filled in presumably more as you make more posts. But this implies that there is a 'target' - i.e. once you have got all the stars filled you will have 'arrived', when I can't really see how this is the case.

    Secondly, surely a much more meaningful indicator of how active someone is would be their average post count per day over the last week/month?
    That way if people stopped posting so much they would rightfully go down, and people would get an indication of who's currently the most active, as opposed to being a system akin to 'caps' in football.

    and why am I now 'new' member when only half an hour ago I was 'active' member with three stars?

    ... because I'm changing the ranking system and images.

    You should think of ranking in terms of how active someone is, rather than how clever or expert they are.

    I'll try to change the ranking names to reflect that :?:
