Just wondering how the level of site membership is determined? For example : Senior Member and Junior Member.

It's by # of posts, but I'm not sure how many.

The member titles are currently set at the default settings:

Junior Member 0 - 29 posts
Member 30 -100 posts
Senior Member 100 + posts

Hope that helps. Also, if anyone has suggestions of different titles, I would be willing to entertain the thought of changing them. I may not use them, but I will consider it. ;) Be clean and creative.

Indeed, I did.

I may not use them

:biggrin:

While your creativity and wit are appreciated, I will keep the floor open for other suggestions so as not to appear biased toward my favorite poster. :rolleyes:

Based upon Gerry's proposal I will remain a Lurker so I am not accused of looking for companionship on the net.

Yeah, Brian. I've gotten lots of grief about my internet fishing dates.

Gerry, in my case,
101 - 250 was not so much "Knows It All and Will Gladly Share" as much as "Knows Nothing but Eager to Learn"

OMG!

I just realized I'm a Forum God approaching a Paula!

I may have to rethink this

or take a hiatus...

I've never had one of those, but I think they hurt pretty bad! (A hiatus, that is.)

BTW, in case you were worried, we'll never confuse you with Paula.

This is a pretty interesting thread, too bad i'm not that creative. I especially like the chuck norris one, that's funny.

That's good to know ijsouth....

If I see someone standing in the river with a ski-boot on one foot and a flipper on the other, I'll know you're either ready for anything or from the institution. :biggrin:

And here all of this time, I thought Senior Member had something to do with my grey hair.

1-50 posts "What are you doing?"
50-150 posts "Are you going to get something done today?"
150-250 posts "Your son is trying to talk to you."
250-350 posts "Are you even LISTENING to me?!"
350+ posts "WILL YOU GET OFF THAT DANG COMPUTER BEFORE I THROW IT OUT!!!!!"

Unfortunately, according to this system I would have attained the 350+ post ranking several times already without having actually posted that many times.

In all honesty, I don't live too far from the state hospital...if you know a little about Louisiana history, it's the same hospital Gov. Earl Long was comitted to briefly, during his last term in office. His wife was behind it, and ol' Uncle Earl, still exercising the powers of the office, fired the director of the hospital and appointed one of his pals, who immediately signed release papers.

Another interesting story.....but I'm afraid my LA History is limited to that old diddy by Jerry Reed "Amos Moses."....well actually now that I think about it, there was a song, "Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton and it's actually historically accurate...


ok....back to the real discussion

I live very close to the little town of Madisonville (named after James Madison); it was the staging area for Andrew Jackson - from there he crossed Lake Ponchartrain to New Orleans to defend the city. Apparently some of the "Kaintucks" as the Creoles in the city called them decided to hang around afterwards, for there are several veterans of the battle buried in the Madisonville cemetery.

Now, people down here think I'm nuts for driving 700 miles to catch small fish that, for the most part, I release....so, sanity is in the eye of the beholder.
