    Member Status!!!!

    okay guys, do not change the member status, base on number of posts!!! LOL Lot of Forums, BBS and Discussion sites have done this and the result is, Boo-Coo "garbage", Flame, Troll and other BUxx SHxx!!! postings just to get a higher status!!!!!

    Try and keep it like it is, come here, post, reply and damn the numbers!!!!

    For you Technical people, I'm an older member, but I do not care about numbers, I come here to get info, from posts, I reply, as a way of thanking people here for the help and to help others.

    Good example of this(post more to get a Higher rating) is on Anand's Forums, since they began that more posts equals higher status, the amount of "Flame", Troll and BS posting has made that Forum ugly to view , post or reply!!! Too bad, a lot of good info there

    So do not change the way things are here. Thanks.

    Suppose you are right. We don't want people just to post to see who has the highest number. Anyway, nobody will ever beat Toolbox

    Since we're here to do more than post, I think the posts should be based on what's *helpful*

    Sometimes we post just to converse or share an opinion or tell a joke. I don't mind that either. But being helpful is what HWC is most about.

    I'd rather have 10 *helpful* posts than a 1,000 miscellaneous posts.

    That's why it was suggested that there be two categories for members....those that are tech oriented...and those that are social posters.

    The members know who fits in what category.

    Gregory,

    I can go along with that concept. Seems workable to me.

    They should base it on how long you have been here like the following...

    1month=Jr. Member
    3month=Members
    6month=senior member
    12month=tech
    1.3years=proffesor
    1.6+years=Guru
