Titles and what they mean - 05/28/01 03:09 AM

We have had quite a few inquiries regarding Member Titles and what they mean. I have made a few changes to the system and this is how it breaks down:<br><br>(the number reflects the amount of posts you've made)<br><br>0 Stranger<br>1 Newbie<br>25 Regular<br>50 Journeyman<br>100 Jr. Member<br>250 Member<br>500 Senior Member<br>1000 Executive Member<br>1500 Pooh-Bah<br>2500 Grand Pooh-Bah<br>5000 Master<br>10000 Grand Master<br>25000 Legend<br>50000 Immortal<br><br>I hope this explains things a bit.<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Stan<br><br>

Stan,<br><br>I think perhaps that something is wrong with the title set up, I seem to have 29 posts, according to the board (more after I post this post) and I'm still ranked as a "stranger" ..<br><br><br>Just thought I'd point this out... <br><br>Used to be at that other Mac website... like it here now.

John,<br><br>I am a little concerned. Your title should have changed by now -- sorry about that chief!! I changed it to Journeyman manually,as it should be, with the amount of posts you made, but it should change again automatically at 100 posts. Please let me know if it doesn't.<br><br>All the best my friend!<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Stan<br><br>

Stan,<br><br>If you notice people like "OSXAddict" and "Yoyo52" and "Sean" and "Cipher13" have their title set as "stranger" while the proper title is "Stranger".<br><br>I wonder is the capitalization of the titles is what's causing the problems? perhaps the BB thinks that the non-capitalized version is a "special" title and thus won't update it?<br><br>Just a thought.<br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2

Re: Titles and what they mean - 05/31/01 01:35 AM

I am wondering that too. As a test, I signed on as a new user, did one post, and was immediately changed to "Newbie" status. I think the problem is with exisiting members not changing over to the new titles. Just wanted to let you guy (and gals) know that we are working with WWWThreads to see what is happening. If worse comes to worse, I will change the existing Members manually for now.<br><br>Just know this... ya'll aren't strangers anymore. <br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Stan<br><br>

Re: hmmm - 05/31/01 04:42 PM

it certainly does have something to do with what you put in your data <br><br>..
Posted by: OSXaddict

Re: hmmm - 05/31/01 06:31 PM

so it's ME? what I put in my data? I'm confused..I don't recall entering any data that would affect my status.<br><br>Can you help me out Stan?<br><br>

Re: hmmm - 06/01/01 05:49 AM

1. Addict, I'd encourage everyone to input their "personal data" so that we can get to know each other better....<br><br>2. I recommend sending an email to cafe@macminute.com with your "forum name" and a litle note asking Stan to update your "title" to what it should be. That way he knows he gets them all.<br><br>I think the "title" issue is only for those that have the "stranger" title, which is a lower case letter... and thus isn't in the new scheme, so that the forums management interface is just choking when it tries to update the titles...<br><br>They can update them manually, but they are probably pretty busy... so give them time... we know how much you post without the title. <br><br>***<br>"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." <br> -- Ecclesiastes 10:2
