Automatic user titles

this got brought up in the off-topic section, so I figured Id throw it in here....


I think the automatic "senior member" title should be changed from 100 posts to 500. there are a lot.... correction..... A LOT of new people coming on here that get 100 posts and all of a sudden start acting like they run the show. I understand that the 100 posts thing was started when the site was young, but now we have grown larger and I think it should be changed. or even have a few more automatic titles added. I also understand that the user title can be changed, but some people dont know how or care to change it.


Something I was thinking of:


0-500 posts Junior member
500-2000 posts Senior member
2000-5000 posts Veteran member
5000+ posts Sage/Senex member
10,000+ posts OMGWTFBBQ member (or something along those lines)

Don't worry, the current ones were never meant to be permanent. We'll have something fun and unique soon.

I agree, its time to revise things. As it is, there's only two tiers of membership: junior and senior. Expanding that out to 3 or 4 is a good idea. How about some more suggestions for different 'levels' of members

Generally speaking, I prefer something that is related to the forum, I don't know how many would agree with me. But off the top of my head ... LS (<100), LT(<1000), and SS (<10 000)? And perhaps later .... Z28 (>10 000)?

I think you should have to get your custom title approved by a mod from now on if you're under a certain post count. That was one of the perks of participating in conversations on other forums.

I can't speak for the others, but that sounds like it would just be an annoyance for everyone involved. We do more moderating and less participating than we like as it is now. I don't welcome the creation of extra work for us.

Personally, I don't put any weight in what a user title says. It's more about the content of the post than the #'s for me.
