    User Title

    Let's hope there's a cache of old messages somewhere that can be recovered. It's so humbling to be a stranger or newbie after all these years! And there seems to be an internal inconsistency: my profile shows posts, but I'm still ranked as a stranger. Is this because I haven't logged off and back on yet?

    Re: User Title

    Figured you might find this funny seeing you are/were a database administrator. It seems Ken sold the old server with the old lounge on it, including the database of posts. Looks like no one knows if Ken has a backup somewhere. What a way to lose the old posts!

    I think your title changes based on the number of posts, but I would rather see a "quality measure" make the change not a quantity.

    By the way, you can attach files in your posts. (You mentioned an Access sample in the Access forum)

    fwiw

    This has been discussed over on Scream's (w3t) board. There may be a hack already or at least in the works.

    A soon as I have a minute I'm going to reinstate all the old MVP titles so then you seasoned warhorses will all get your due.

    Re: User Title

    Just for the record, I have no objection to being called stranger (people have often called me strange) but I would like to know: stranger than whom? I need some sort of benchmark?
    And I'd also like to say I don't really care about frames, emoticons or advertising in posts/signatures - the Lounge is back! Thank you![img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Do you accept "credits" from other sites ? Like http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/...sp?ta=msoffice ?

    If you aspire to a 'title' here, you have to earn it here [img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img] but you could certainly mention your EE status in your Signature.

    I see you've gone and re-calibrated user titles - still can't see 'royalty' listed!
    And you've changed your hat again!

    Eileen has always been a fashion setter, and she is not amused at the idea of spreading royal titles around. Right, your highness...uh, Eileen?

    Oh, my Go..er, goodness, I didn't know! I'll definitely genuflect before I point out a problem in the future.
