  • g* See Peter's most recent thread here in System Talk. It was a bug added when the latest tweak was made, which halted all budding members at that rank.

(Hopefully moot now, but I also completely disagree with what you said above. TP doesn't have to do anything. This site isn't a democracy, and no one is entitled to anything, least of all some silly string put under someone's member name which is here to help newly arriving users, not to make longstanding members feel good about themselves. I've seen good communities rip themselves apart in controversy over default member titles on basic message boards, and nothing is more stupid. Use the site as a whole because it's useful for you, and/or you like helping people - or not. Everything here is freely given, no one pays. Be happy with that.)

It's exactly because that kind of thing happening that I'd advocate abandoning the ranking system altogether... but as I said, it's not very important to me either; I just enjoy fussing about these issues :)

The fact of the matter is that a lot of people DO like the member titles and attach some sort of value to them. Yes, things can go wrong. That's true of this entire website, which like anything that involves computers, suffers from bugs from time to time. But that seems to me the worst reason to not do something.

I'd go on about why I think the member titles serve a purpose, but I can't be bothered.

They're there, even if they are just to amuse me.. mwuhahaha

If you can't amuse yourself - what's the point!!!

I was hoping that the extermination of the bug problem would have elevated me to Admin status... But alas, it did not seem to work. Are you sure that bug is fixed???

I would very much attach some sort of value to them if they came with chocolate rewards....;)

(All this time I thought post count was somehow calculated into pounds of chocolate....or maybe some sort of point system with Godiva....:( )
