Sorry, thread hijack over....

I've smoked for 55 years and have tried everything to quit, without success. I am now starting my sixth week off tobacco (cigarettes) and I owe it all to E-Cigarettes. Google them.

I'll see your Mc Donald's 5 stars, and raise you a Michelin one star.

No - but is that an offer??

Technically it was suggested here. Not my idea at all but quite brilliant, nevertheless. We've just fleshed out the concept a bit as it's a great idea. I can just see the howls from new members saying "What the hell - my names NOT Mary Ann, what are you people thinking; that's just defamatory.... " etc Some folks are surprisingly humourless....

Greetings,
Ms. J. Technicalities aside, why Gilligan's Island? Nautical theme? McHale's Navy has been suggested but why not The Love boat? Mork and Mindy (Mork arrived via space SHIP), 3rd Rock From the Sun and My Favorite Martian likewise. Don't even get me started on Seinfeld, Friends or Frasier-Rubbish all. (MY opinion).
If one pursues the SHIP theme even further....Star Trek (in all it's manifestations), Star Wars, or Battlestar Galactica.
Either self appointed titles or an "out" option is the way to go although I think, with all due respect, newbie or new member should be retained for a period of time. 25 posts perhaps? THEN the new member titles themselves or not.
As to post count? Why not? As has been mentioned, a new member should be able to sense in fairly short order what information, NOT based on post # to filter and use. Hopefully they will avoid any mistakes, even minor, following erroneous opinions/information.

Captain?

Maybe we should have our Meyers-Briggs personality type listed under our names. ENTP.

So, we're thinking:

0-49 Zebra
50-99 Orangutang
100-249 Hyena
250-999 Tiger
1000+ Pi
