It occurs to me, that "Ranking" is irrelevant, WE are a COLLECTIVE GROUP of friends, and fellow, Culinarians. As a "Team", Family, Group, Friends' (please don't ban me) (But I think it is Far more important, (the Validity of the Data Deliniated) (a oppossed to, ie. "yeah, I posted 12,000 tomes about my car) (Example given) (Yet I Understand, the process of what is trying to be done here) Atomic Jed! (Said) Vote 5 Stars for DC!!! 70.3 (more and WE WE Advance to 6th!US!!! TEAM!!! Friends!!!!

To tell you the truth I've never even bothered looking at titles or post counts, I just don't care. But I like the idea of the cute ones that are up there now. I see nothing wrong with adding the titles, it's the norm on nearly every other message board out there and nothing to get all choked up about.

I won't be participating in thread that I wouldn't normally post on to boost my count, I don't assume that someone with a lowish post count doesn't have relative information to share and I don't believe that those with super high post counts have any secret knowledge that the rest of us don't. Matter of fact I hardly pay attention to who posts what, my focus is on the content of what's being said. /shrug

It's all in fun. Why not acknowledge those with the gift of gab with a cute title?

Yes, Zereh, (yet I ponder, Imagine, anyone of us, just Proudly got a Culinary Institute Certification, "Posted" here with Us, for the first time, And is "Ranked" "Grease" drainer" (ala, (only 1 post) I have driven on Icy roads to get to grocery store to, answer a persons question on here 2 years ago, Me reading ingredient labels, while others were frantic to go. I have been "head Chef" at a restuarant yet, are we to to be "Ranked" on our culinary skills and knowledge that WE Share Cumalitivly , merely by our "number of posts"? (just an observation, and opinion) (Gotta Love US!!!!) Atomic Jed!

Well once we have some other things taken care of we will try a 90 beta test of a Karma system. This is a way to awknowledge and thank those that contribute to the community. Then I'd like to figure out a way to use a members tenure, karma points and post count (secret formula) to create some more perks for "contributing members" like more Private Message space, a bigger avatar, custom title & more... But it will take a while to get there and refine the formula, etc... But you should get the theory from that...

Quit being a wet blanket, Darkstream! This website isn't going to **** just because titles are being awarded on the basis of posts or karma or whatever. I could care less what title I get, why should you?

Arrow Please listen to my idea on Title Ranking

Ok, i know im the new kid on the block. But, i have an idea. First off i do not agree with new people or under 50 posts being called Grease Trap Cleaners!! lol. Im hoping that was a Joke! Cause this here girl cleans no Grease Traps for anyone hahahha. Ok to my idea........ The owner of DC or Administrator could come up with a College Culinary Arts Test. For volunteers ONLY!! Or the people that want a ranking. And, it would depend on your scores, to what rank you recieved. I feel the number of posts should be by your name. But, it should not count against you for not posting as much as the next person. I seen a posting yesterday that said only "DITTO", if i wanted to i could sit all day on here and get the highest score of anyone with the word Ditto. Haha. Anyways, thanks for listening. Just giving my opinion and ideas.

As you can see Heat you cannot just make posts that say just ditto or just quote a post as you did with the one that I deleted. You see, this forum is moderated and that kind of posting will not go on here. So your theory is foiled - with heavy duty

And if you'll notice - those were all suggestions - that is not what we are doing now - you are Assistant Cook I believe - and remember - this is "virtual" cooking so there can only be "virtual" grease trap cleaning.
