I've had several requests from people to change their 'status' (e.g. veteran, newbie, Jr. member, etc). Maybe it's time to redo the 'status' system.

When members moved from the old forum to the new forum, their status was made as veteran.

The status of everyone else is based on the # of posts:
Newbie             0
Jr. Member       50
Full Member     100
Sr. Member      250
Hero Member   500

Any suggestions on better names for the status names?
I'll probably also remove the veteran classification to make the system the same for everyone.

IMO. The names are OK as is.

Why should it matter what your status is if we are all here for the same purpose. We all own and enjoy our Camaro's, some in other ways than others. We share the same interest. We share info when and if we can. I personally won't care if I stay a Newbie or become a Hero one way or another. If I can be of some help in anyway, and someone can use the help I provide, I wouldn't think what status you were would matter. We share a common bond here. Only my opinion folks, don't take it the wrong way...

I  don't even look at a members status unless they are making some statements as fact and I question it.  You are in a unique position with this web site in that you get emails and PM's from people that  help the hobby in several different ways that aren's posted on the web site.  I would think that would merrit some consideration but I don't know how you would do it.  JMHO

I thought about something like that, but I didn't want to slight people that own L6 and low-po V8's.
And a Z is higher than an L89? I don't want to go there. Smiley

I'm fine with the newbie and hero labels. I wouldn't mind better names for the middle categories, if we can come up with them.

Some sites really push the importance of the status - hence probably why some people have asked about it.

I removed the veteran status so now status is now only a factor of the # of posts.
Other than that, I'll leave the names as status quo for now.

Thanks for the input!

There's one version.  Preview your post and there's a box labeled 'Notify me of replies'.

I haven't seen a feature to see just your own threads on other sites, but it's probably out there. There may be some software changes in the future and I'll watch for that feature.

Not that it makes a lot of difference, but I got downgraded from Veteran to newbie. I've read the post and see that your status is now based only on number of post.  Like I said, it's not a big deal but I've been a member and visiting and occasionally posting since half of the members here were still in high school.   I just hate being classified as a newbie.   Please don't let those V6-Berlinetta type guys contaminate this site like they have the other one. 

First Gen Forever.    Thanks Jim

Jim,
I knew that would happen to a few people.

I'm more than willing to add another level (maybe at 25 posts) or change how many posts to not be a newbie or change the newbie name.

Is doing away with the silly & meaningless names altogether considered valid input to this thread?
I think they're purely trivial.
Post count shows how much someone posts. No need for a name.  Smiley

Hey KurtS

I am brand new here. (Although I bought my first 67 in 1976 ,rs ss 4 speed coupe)And this site is clearly invaluable. It is a Gem. For me personally the names or # of posts don't matter.
I appreciate the consideration given to aknowledge those who have been contributing to this great site over a long period of time. Do as you like  as far as the names go. If you could describe myself in a name it would be," GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY AND GLAD TO BE HERE GUY "
