    New user titles explained

    Just a note that there's a new user title system in place:

    CF newcomer 0-50 posts
    CF regular 50-300
    CF addict 300-1000
    CF nut >1000

    This versus the old system, which was:

    Junior member 0-30 posts
    Member 30-100
    Senior member >100

    Thanks,
    - George

    Looks a bit as if I were a die-hard ColdFusion fan (I'm not).

    Anyway, I like them. Is more interesting than member - senior member.

    Sorry, but i don't see the added value of those titles, since the number of posts is shown in the same cell. Its not a indication for the knowledge of the user. The new one is ok for me, so was the old one. I never look at them. The only thing thats interesting is to know if someone is a moderator.

    i like the new system much more, George.

    <edit> mostly because it now more accurately describes whammy. ::grin:: </edit>

    i think the descriptions dont describe the user as well as before

    for example "CF Addict", this person may not be an addict, but just been in the forum a long time and have a high post number, even if they are not in fact, an addict to the forum.

    on the other hand i do like the fact that it doesnt have emphasis on seniority, that could possibly distract users.

    perhaps im thinking about it toooo much

    An addict regularly comes back to whatever. I don't see your point.

    Besides, this latest reincarnation of the WSAbstract forums hasn't been around long at all, I still even haven't come close to my 6000 or 7000 post count from the old forums...

    I must admit, it is great to see that suggestions are taken into account.

    Only in the world of the coding forums...

    ok jkd, i guess technically you are right
    i was just thinking about the amount of times the forum is visited in a certain amount of time.as to say, you arent an addict if you visit the forum twice a month, but have a large post number from being here so long.although technically you DO come back.
    but who am i anyway?
    whatever WA decides is fine with me, its not my website and it wont effect the fact that i come here every day.
    i was just suggesting that the titles should be more "general" instead of trying to state what type of person the poster is.
    i do remember when you had thousands of posts heh

    I think I need to go to some CF Annonymous meetings, I'm an CF adict.

    edit: I just realised I am an addict, I always have a browser window open for the ASP forum..always oh oh and I refresh every few minutes, oh an I have special notification sounds for when a email from coding forums gets to my inbox which checks itself every 3 minutes.
