    Numbers
    25 (?) Member
    1000 Senior Member
    3000 Veteran Member

    Moderator, Retailer and Manufacturer are post irrelevant and for info purposes.

    I see i'm not new now... 25 must be!

    How does "one" become a moderator? Do you have to work for the forum owners?

    I often wondered about the insertion of another grading level at say 500 posts. These people could be "Experienced Members" or something. It often seems like a very long time between 26 and 1000 posts :).

    How do you get from "Moderator" to "Senior Moderator". Is that a post count thing too?

    I think the Junior -> Member transition is at 30.

    I'm surprised that Stuart hasn't implemented a further status for the likes of HD who are head and shoulders above the 3000 post count since he could enter it manually.

    When I originally joined the forums we were allowed to enter our own label so I was an EvilMember. :devil:

    i had some good member tags as a rule that was a while back pity as being the only none retailer/moderator in the top five posts (was top 10 but Rasczak has been doing stirling work)i do feel veteran is somewhat inadaquate i think i do now have the highest post count ever od did the bushy tailed one make 20k?????????
    i feel an average of 10 posts a day is suitable number to make.............(best make it 11 today hadnt i)

    And if you want to polish your post count try and buy a black DVD recorder...............(or VCR or VCR/DVDR or PVR in black)

    The bushy tailed one used to do 1000 per week if I'm not mistaken, 99% of which weren't necessary :D

    Who's the bushy tailed one...are they part of AVforum folklore? A prodigious poster of posts who no longer exists - a story told to young AVforumites who think they could become the top poster ever?

    Couldn't it be changed from "Member"?

    It makes us sound like a bunch of D :devil: C :devil: S.

    It's odd that this preoccupation with post counts and status only seems to be amongst the denizens of General Chat as others don't seem to be that bothered.

    If you look at the "Member List" and click on "posts" it will sort the members into descending order according to post count ( link here. It has oft been my view that those with high post counts either don't work hard enough or don't get out enough and my own position as the second highest poster has long been a source of embarrassment to me.

    In my defence I freely admit that I don't work very hard :D

    As well as the post count list which Ian has just linked to there is also a trader summary here for those who are interested. :)
