I don't usually start a post, but can't help but notice the categories each person has fallen into. Certain people who refuse to sign in and then post as a Guest, never get enough posts in total to move out of the "New Member" category. I originally had thought the "New Member" status may refer to how long the person had been a member of the site, but it appears that it only has to do with the number of posts. Thus someone who had a 36-hour run on this forum and posted REAL responses to every active post, could become a bronze or silver member in a day and a half. A second person who doesn't want the world to know they are signed in, may be a member for years before they get even to the metal of lead level. When does Cecil get to be gold-pressed latinum level?
