Re: Let's create new USER TITLES for LRH
I have never looked at the number of posts by any contributor. I have never observed the titles "member," "senior member" etc. If Len wishes to assign such titles that is certainly his perogative and he obvioulsy has good reasons for starting this thread. I personally have no use for them. Years ago I worked in a store where policy was not to accept a check from anyone unless it was numbered greater than 3000. The owner felt like that meant the customer had a long standing with the bank and was customer worthy. Apparently, what he didn't know is that any bank will start your new checks with any number you want. Regardless of number, it didn't mean there was money to cover the check, as he found out.
I remember reading on another site some years ago a "new member" was bashed for posting a rather long winded but completely sensible post. One basher commented something to the effect, "oh, here we have a know-it-all and he's only posted 3 times."
That kind of attitude is completely unfair. There are some shooters out there that haven't found all the sites out there that may have lots of knowledge to contribute, or maybe they just don't like to type much, who knows. As it turned out, that new member was smarter and more knowledgeable than most other members.
That said, if there is a reasonable suggestion to make, why not assign the members with metals?
Bronze member (0-250 posts)
Silver member (251-500)
Gold member (501-1000)
Platinum member (1001+)
