The number you are looking for is 75.

After that it's 110 (why not 100?), 160, 250, 300, 500 and 1000

Do people post any old inane stuff just to get their number (and therefore, status) up?

Ah! Ha! At last I've seen the various thresholds revealed. So, Kay, what descriptions do you get with each threshold? Been wondering for ages...

Yes Mr robjones, I've wondered too. There's various stalkers, heroes, addicts and abusers but how far do you have to go to become a 'Loser' or even a 'Dweeb'?
I'd quite like to get to 'Nerd' as I think there's a certain kudos in that.  :bow:
Maybe when you get to 5 figures it should read 'No Friends'  :(

Cheers

George

The term you seek is "Billy", I believe.

Look, I've already trawled through the members list once to find where the thresholds are, I'm not going to do it again just to find what the levels are all called!

OK - may not be quite right:

75.        addict
110       menacing presence
160       stalker
250      obsessive maniac
300      forum abuser
500      junky
1000    forum hero

It's vaguely interesting statisitically - it's a markov process type thingy with an absorbing state of 'forum hero'  - given sufficient time we'll all get there eventually. But the other interesting thing is once you get amongst the real enthusiasts at the top, the size of the differences between the numbers of posts of various people are such that it gets quite difficult for the order of posters to change - Peter Burgess will need to post 2000 more posts than Cap'n'Chris if he wants to steal the top spot.

If he tries harder he might* jolly well succeed.

Not far from being wired into the matrix, me.



* Yeah, sure. Right.

Hum...  I'm still only a miserable abuser, at 595 596 posts now...
Don't suppose I'll ever catch up with the Heroes    :(

I think Roger that you have just proved the list incorrect...  Since you have 596 and that's meant to be Junky?
P.S.    It wazzn't me!   It waz an illusion!

Thanks, Bubba.

That's only 153 or so to go to make me a junky, then.

Do my best to make 'em worthwhile and not waste space on your new server.    :)
