    This comes up to anyone that doesn't post to Wilders - well how, frequently?
    It would be nice if the "wording" of this was changed to something somewhat more board-friendly?

    Frank Zappa isn't alive to comment, although I sincerely wish he was.

    It's a "board-friendly" incentive for them to make that 50th post o_O :p

    Just for kicks and grins....what names did you have in mind ?

    I wasn't aware that Wilders had such an incentive. 50 posts and you're OK?
    Hmmm....

    BTW - I'm an Infrequent Poster.

    Nobody in mind, just throwing out that comment for consideration.

    We've had a lot of different member title steps here, and all have suffered from various objections. Early on, we used the default ranking steps that came with YaBB SE. It started with 1-50 posts being a Newbie. We got lots of complaints on that one. I'm not a newbie. I've been doing this for years and know more than you do about xyz!. Fine. :doubt:

    So, we changed the first three steps to some used at other boards: Junior Member, Member, and Senior Member. Then came the complaints on that. Junior? I'm 65 years old. or I'm not junior, I've got a Computer Science degree and 17 certifications!. And the ever popular, Why does that guy get to be a Senior Member, from what he posts it's clear he doesn't know half of what I know in this area! Fine. :doubt:

    So, we thought about it for a bit, and came up with our current steps:

    current-member-steps.gif

    And yes, there are complaints about these, too. The best complaint is from those in the upper "Massive" title ranges. They say it makes them feel fat. Well, I like to say it's not a matter of being fat, it's just we're "big fonted". :shifty:

    Anyway, we're going to stick with this title set for awhile. :D

    How can I change from a Infrequent Poster to a Frequent Poster ?

    I just want to know how many threads or replies I have to post before I become a Frequent Poster ?

    Is there any higher level ?

    Thank you.

    hi LMW!

    well, I think that the given title set is incomplete.

    For example...Pls. have a look at these titles enjoying by some members:-

    Member Name - Title
    =========== ======

    Wildman - Wild Thing !!
    Mercurie - A Friendly Creature
    NicM - nico nico
    BeetleBoss - She who posts lots of smileys
    Marja - Honestly, I'm not a bot !!
    bettlejuice - Forum Friend
    .....
    .....
    .....and many more.
    ==================

    I personally do not hv any problems with the given titles.

    Just for my curiosity... If you could explain

    what are these out-of-line titles for? ...and

    what criteria you have set for these out-of-line titles?

    There are a 'few' and I do mean a few different titles, they are given occasionally by Mike or Paul (The site owners). They aren't asked for, they're simply given. ;) There is no criteria - Well actually there is one criteria if one is requested ... it'll sure never come to past. How they come to be, is usely derived from a personality trait, a unique thread ... or something alone those lines - it's a spur of the moment thing. :)

    Well I used to be an infrequent poster and now I'm a regular. :rolleyes:

    WTF, it really doesn't matter. What matters is if you get your question answered or not. :cool:

    Fellow spelunkers,

    I don't mind 'infrequent poster' 'cause I'm an old man and got lots of time to post. I am on a another forum that uses military titles. I really don't like that. If I had wanted to have a martial title, I would have remained in the military.

    Why not just put the number of posts as the title? Would that insult any one? We would have your number.

    itd be boring not to have titles and besides, they make identifying staff easier. their names have colors but the titles give a nice touch.
