Junior member, member, and senior member

I want to see if anyone agrees with me on this: Shouldn't the amount of posts to be a senior member be something much higher than 100? Is doesn't take much to get 100 posts. I think it should be this way:

0-99 junior member
100-999 member
1000+ senior member

I'm not sure if the mods would be able to change the number or not. It's prolly the default in the software and doesn't really mean much.

I don't know about the increment you propose, but I think there should be a change if they're even going to have it. I don't think it really serves much of a purpose anyway. I've seen members that have been here since 2000 with only a handful of posts and others that have recently joined and have several hundred in no time.

You hit the nail on the head. Post count is pretty much a meaningless number. Post quality is what counts, and that comes through loud and clear, one way or the other, when reading a member's posts. The post count and consequently their "status" mean little to nothing.

We are using the vbulletin default numbers. Sure they could be changed, but how would that improve post quality or further the TFL mission?

Now Wild, you know when you have 6920s for sale, the one post announcing it in the For Sale forum makes you Supreme Overlord of TFL.

LOL

i like guns too.

Make posts like the above and you rack them up in a hurry.

Come to think of it this post falls in the next to worthless category as well.
