Default Becoming an Active Member vs. a New Member
I'm sure the answer is here somewhere, so I'm sorry if I've missed it - but when and how does a New Member status change to Active Member. Not that it's any big deal - but just wondering.

I'm sure the answer is somewhere already on the forum - but I've looked and looked and can't seem to find anything about it. I've double checked the new member PM, FAQ's, and this Forum.

Thanks for any help ya'll! Happy Thankgiving as well! Hope you all are blessed!

Pam

Well - as I clicked submit I see that I am now listed as a contributing member! Yeah!!! That's very cool...so maybe I've answered my own post somewhat.

Still would kinda like to understand the different levels though.
Thanks again. Pam

Hi Pam, good question - and you know it isn't listed anywhere and no one has ever asked!

And as you've discovered, at 250 posts a 'New Member' becomes a 'Junior Member'. Thanks for being an important part of the community!

I notice there are different levels such as contributing member and active member. What are all the different types of members and how many posts do you need to reach for each one?

Yes, they're very basic (and actually, we are open to suggestions for levels of posts and titles so if you have any please feel free to reply to the thread for consideration)
Also, bear in mind this was set up when the site was new and hasn't been updated since - so... any thoughts?

Here's what we've got:
New Member 0 posts
Contributing Member 50
Active Member 500
Senior Member 1000

This is great! My feedback is that we should have a level at 200 or 250 also. I am only at 257 and am active but long way from 500. What do you guys think?

I've only been on the site for a few days and I'm already almost up to the 50 post mark. It's hard NOT to hit that in your first day as you read through all the information on this site!

Good to see this. So many forums have 'incentives' for their members. I belong to a writer's forum and they have pencils with notches in them - and I have a long pencil there these days

Others have funny names for their levels.

We'd love to develop that part of the forums more - but haven't come up with any great ideas yet - and frankly, it took a back seat to development. BUT if anyone has any suggestions (similar to the 'pencil' idea Kathie mentioned) please feel free to share!
