    Member "status"?

    First off, I could care less about this as a membership "status" feature, but it was interesting to see as I was looking at some of the members here and how their profile was designated. I took a random sampling and saw Junior Members, Members and Senior Members. There may be other classifications as well, aside from staff members/owners, but I didn't find them in my quick sample. However, I am now curious as to how those are determined. As best I can tell, it is not based strictly on a join date or a post count. Is there some other mysterious magical formula?

    For example, I joined in 2010 and at this point have 1683 posts. I am a "member".

    Another person joined in 2012 and has over 1650 posts and is a "senior member".

    I see another person joined in 2008 and has about 1400 posts and is a "member".

    Yet another person joined in 2008 as well, but only has just under 1200 posts and is a "senior member".

    See, there doesn't seem to a be a rhyme or reason to it. I am not angling for a change, maybe those designations don't update anymore, but just curious. I'd never really noticed until this evening for some reason.

    All I can say is you must be bored out your mind.

    I see no reason why I have senior member status while mrmopar is just a lowly, common member.

    For real, this is strange...

    That join date is off by quite a bit too, as is my post count. It should be several thousand higher as well. @cgilmo accidentally deleted my account once and I had to register again.

    I am a little uncomfortable with everyone talking about their members.

    I have found as a member with senior membership status that sometimes it needs to take the little blue pill.
    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    I think I'd rather be a senior member then have a junior member, if you know what I mean

    To be a senior member it requires some "palm dusting" I'll be accepting credit card numbers in my pm box.


    Totally kidding, if you send me your cc number I'm deleting it and calling you an idiot.

    The real answer is that sometimes ranks have to be manually compiled. I just started the process and ranks should update today as we have not done this in a while.
