    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    "VIP Emeritus" is a title given to posters of who used to hold the title of VIP before the new thumbs up system was in place. It's a title of recognition of past contributions.

    We're still working on when that will happen, but for now I do not know.

    This:

    Every few weeks, Lounge administrators and moderators carefully read the last three months' posts by members who've received more than a couple of thumbs-up votes. Loungers who've made the best contributions to the knowledge of all Windows users will be promoted to the status of VIP (Very Informed Person). VIP badgeholders can participate in private discussion forums and communicate directly with the leaders of the Lounge.
    From the following thread:

    http://lounge.windowssecrets.com/ind...owtopic=775826

    makes the knowledge fairly "common"

    Since you never had the "title" VIP, you would not be aware of any small entitlements given to VIPs.
    Now that VIPs do not exist any more here, I don't care to go into the details with you. Loungers who did
    have the title, know what I'm speaking of.
    The status of the VIP Room Forum apparently has fallen into the black hole of space in WSL.
