Junior member, Member, Senior Member titles

Hi there. Great forum. I'm learning a lot.

I was wondering if it would be possible to switch the titles to reflect registration date rather than post count?

I'm a little more chatty than some of the other users and despite being a member for under a month and being a firearms novice, suddenly I'm a Senior Member? I don't want a new forum member to mistake me for one of the seasoned, knowledgeable firearms experts on here.

Maybe do it like: first 2 months = Junior Member, then Member for 6+ months, and then Senior Member to more closely reflect forum usage?

Our current set up seems to work fine:

Junior = 0 to 14
Member = 15 to 99
Senior = 100 and up

And there's no provision in the software, AFAIK, to change it to your suggested method.

The member status means little to anyone who can read and comprehend plain English. Members are judged more on the style and appearance of their posts than on post count.

Personally, there are some members with more than 1,000 posts whom I completely disregard, and others with fewer than 300 that I hold in high esteem.

My judgement of you (based solely on this post) is that you are an intelligent (based on your spelling and use of proper grammar), thoughtful (based on the subject matter of your post) member who is considerate of others and thinks himself to have more to learn than to teach. Don't sell yourself short. There's not a single thing wrong with that! I'd rather have a hundred members like you than one self-proclaimed "expert."

Thanks for the fast reply. I didn't know Vbulletin software didn't allow for that kind of customization.

Just a minor thing I noticed today. No worries.

You can kill this thread if you want.

[edit] Just an aside, but this is by far the nicest and best run firearms forum I've run across so far. Keep up the good work. My question threads have recieved informative responses and I've learned a lot by just lurking & reading.

Please note that posters' registration dates are displayed right below their member titles. If you want to judge people by their time on the forum, that's easy enough.
