    What do we think about maybe even reserving the Wizard category as an elected category.
    Say by a majority of the Gurus at first and then by a majority of the Wizards once the category is large enough.
    That way it could be a position of honor based on a person being a true computer wizard and not just a prolific poster.

    Just a thought.

    Still have to check to see if UBB is capable of changing the status of given members.

    how about if after 500 posts or so, we can change to whatever status we want to be called, like going from jr member(1) to member(30) to a choice of either senior member(500 default) or whatever else we want - old dog, guru, funkmaster, whatever. after 500 posts, i believe members will be responsible enough to choose their title within reason.

    Once someone reaches a thousand post call him MiniToolbox, then 2000 posts MidiToolbox, 3000 posts FullToolbox and don't worry... no one will ever reach 4000 posts except me Toolbox.

    Have a nice day Jeff.

    I like the idea of having a class of memebers that is voted to be "experts" or "gurus" or something like that, something that is decided not on the # of posts alone.

    jr tech
    tech
    sr tech
    guru

    ?

    if you're a "guru" and you answer
    the wrong thing, you will be stripped
    of your status one rank below.

    Ok what about :

    30 - Byte
    100 - Kilo Byte
    500 - Mega Byte
    1000 - Giga Byte
    2000 - Terra Byte
    4000 - You choose your own title for reaching this amount. I mean it is something not any one will reach and there for he must be awarded his own title he/she chooses.

    Then there can allso be diff. stuff diff. ranks can do. Like 30 posts can only acces some of the smiling faces where as 500 can access all. 1000 and up should be able to have some other feature.

    We've already got a member called WWW, that could get confusing.
