Member Titles...

We need to come up with some new member titles that represent the number of posts a member has made.

They are currently the default ones as follows:
Junior Member = 0 posts
Member = 30
Senior Member = 100

I think we should have them for the following post amounts
0 posts
50 posts
100 posts
500 posts
1000 posts

What would some creative options be for these?

As an example here is my quick idea.
0 posts = Junior Member
50 posts = Member
100 posts = Senior Member
500 posts = Sous Chef
1000 posts = Master Chef

Hopefully that will help explain the concept. So what are your creative ideas?

Before I finished reading your initial post Andy I was thinking about Sous Chef and others like that. Great minds think alike :)

Norge, you're a sweetheart! If you knew how many times my smoke alarm has gone off you'd deny any knowledge of my existence!

Here's my take on it:

0 posts = Assistant Cook
50 posts = Cook
100 posts = Senior Cook
500 posts = Sous Chef
1000 posts = Executive Chef
2500 posts = Certified Executive Chef
5000 posts = Certified Master Chef

As I understand, the ACF has certified many C.E.C.'s in the country, but there's only a handful of C.M.C.'s in this country.

Why do we need this rubbish AndyR?

Are you deliberately trying to increase the noise level in the forum?

People who read the posts of the frequent and/or knowledgeable posters know who they are, and value their input.

They do not need to know how many posts they have made.

You seem to be in the "never mind the quality, feel the width" game.

Do you think that "titles" are more important than the people behind them?

The french found way of dealing with that view of life.

Darkstream - the number of posts someone makes has ALWAYS been there - the names have ALWAYS been there i.e., forum newbie, junior member, regular member, senior member, etc. We did that at the other site. This is just a way to have the title related to in a cooking term.

It's just a different word - but the WORD was still there.

The number of posts,yes.

Assigned titles of seniority based on verbosity? I do not think so.

Still, you must take your own course.

Alot of these forums assign names based on the number of posts, they just want to change those names to be more meanful of this site.


Even my local news station forum assigns names based on number of posts.

Dark, I absolutly have to dissagree with you. The number of posts and titles are a great idea. As they were on the old site. Don't you think if someone was here looking around and checking things out and saw that people post all these posts about different things, They would wonder what we are talking about and the recipes we have here and would be interested in this site? I don't think by changing the post titles is going to cause a loud disterbance. I personly think it's cute and funny. This is a brand new site now, and more exciting, why try and keep it the same way as the OLD one.I think You did a GREAT job Andy!

Personally I dont care about member titles. Having a title would not necessarily encourage me to post more often. I belong to another forum, not related to food, which uses the member title system based on post counts, and what I found was that more members posted silly and irrelevent things just to get their member title changed.
