    How new is new?

    I posted a couple of items to the Outlook list today, and noticed that I was identified as "NewLounger". I've been a member for a good number of years now. How long does it take to become an "OldLounger"? Just wondering.

    John,

    That honorific is determined by the times you post. You're up to 19. You'll find more on this in the HELP section.

    Hi, John ~

    Take a look at this page and I think that will give you an idea. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    John,
    You have 19 posts as of now, so you need 6 more to change your status to "Lounger"

    Didn't GoldLounger used to require 2400 posts, now it's 2500?

    I don't know. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> I believe the 'status' titles can sometimes detract from the quality of the post or forum overall.

    Hi Cowboy, you overestimate our power! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
    I certainly can't transfer posts from one Lounger to another, and I doubt very much that the Admins can do that either. So you'll stay a BronzeLounger a while longer. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: How new is new?

    A number of forums have "titles" of some sort.
    By themselves, the titles are not so meaningful since they are based on raw numbers of postings.

    More meaningful, would be titles on a forum by forum basis, tho still no measure of quality of response or "knowledge".

    Dang it Hans, I was trying ta help a brother out. <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15> Well it's the thought that counts anyway. <img src=/S/blackteeth.gif border=0 alt=blackteeth width=20 height=20>

    <hr>tho still no measure of quality of response or "knowledge"<hr>

    Sure there is Howard. Just look at the responces from people who have had there problem fixed. That is a very good way to measure happiness from Loungers and the Quality of responce by the people who helped.Everybody on this Lounge is important, no matter what thier title is or shows. Right? <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Re: How new is new?

    Thanks for all the answers (and the entertainment, I might add). I had no intention to provoke so much activity, but I should have known better.

    Regards to all,

    John.
