Criteria for "membership level"?

OK, I noticed I went from a "veteran" member to a "senior" member... I don't know if that's a step up or a step down!

Just curious about the criteria, and what all the levels are. Not that it's really important, just curious as always.

Criteria to obtain a certain rank is a closely held secret here at the corporate offices.* We don't want anyone "spamming" us with posts just trying to make "Full Bird Senior".*

And by the way, we reserve the right to demote you at any time to "NEWBIE"!

Might I petition for "senior moment"? It'll take me a while to get to 100 posts or whatever that level is, but that would be more fitting.

We're also thinking about GOM and GOW.

"Veteran" seems to imply experience (like number of posts), and "Senior" seems to imply age (like length of time since starting membership).

Maybe "veteran" should be a status earned by having X number of years owning and/or maintaining a boat or boats?

Anyway, I offer these comments in what is probably a vain attempt to increase my online social standing, without knowing whether it does any good or not. Even boy scouts know how many merit badges it takes to be an Eagle Scout.

Perhaps I'll start another thread on this topic to see if there is any change.

Well, I did some research, and it turns out the TrawlerForum "corporate offices" are in the back of an old Frito Lay truck in the mall parking lot................


Brent, soon to be demoted to troublemaker.....

I, for one, appreciate being promoted to veteran but even though I like animals, I am not really qualified to treat them in a medical capacity.

Carl, we are all extremely jealous, and no idea why the moderator treats you with such favoritism.

RE: Criteria for "membership level"?

I guess I'm in trouble. I don't have a boat yet and won't for about three more years. The plans are in place but I blame my wife. She's the one who encouraged me to go back to school and get my engineer's license, I'm sailing now unlicensed. It seems it will take me years to be more then a newbie but that's ok, I like the banter between all of you. I enjoy the forum and hope I can contribute. Nice to meet you all.

Anthony
