I agree, I would prefer to know how long someone has been here, rather than how chatty they are. And even if it is related to the number of posts, I would like to SEE a LIST of how many posts one needs to have before they change levels, and what order the levels are in. To me, Elite would be the best of something, and would land higher on a list than Premium or even Platinum, but not knowing who made this list or what order they put them in, it is hard to tell what each of the levels are.

I do realize that this is something that won't get much attention any time soon, there are other more important things to tend to on this site. But even if there was a link to the provider of the forum, that explains the list would be helpful.

I think I became elite when I reached 200 posts. Won't be platinum until 500. I have been watching the numbers. Janet

Personally, I'd rather see how long someone has been a member than how many posts were made. I show up as Premium and I have been a member since the beginning. I prefer the stars. Fi

I think someone already suggested the platinum, elite, etc. are related to the number of posts. It is a generic designation that came with the software for the site.

Perhaps I can add something to the list of "things to update" to make it more personal for this site. Say, why don't you all suggest some titles for various levels of posts, i.e. "Chatty Cathy" for a lot of posts or "Too Busy Quilting" for someone with not so much, LOL.

Please understand that suggestions and updates will be done on a priority basis, according to John and Bob's schedule of work. That one will likely be further down the list.

Terrie, I don't think it has to do with the length of time someone has been a member. I am only Elite, and have been a member since before they opened the first site. I have never let my membership lapse, so it couldn't be that either. Granted, I haven't been very active lately, but now that I'm retired, I plan on coming here more often, since I will have more time to quilt. So I guess we wait to see if any ones "membership" changes when they cross a certain threshold of posts... or someone tells us what all the different levels mean.

My thinking (could be wrong...) is that Platinum members have been members longer than Elite members etc. Does this make sense?

Yes, tribble is from the original Star Trek series - an episode called "Trouble with Tribbles" (you can watch it on YouTube). My dog on the left is named Tribble and I am his mom, LOL. He is a shi-tzu/poodle mix. When we got him at two months old he was all black and with black eyes, lips and nose, we couldn't see his face very well, so he looked like a little fur ball just like a tribble. As his hair grew and I trimmed him he started to turn gray and is now all gray. The other dog on my lap is a Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix named Pepper because she is black, white and gray.

Is tribble a Star Trek reference ? Cause that's a cute play on words.

Sherry, Dana and I were discussing this just the other night! You are platinum and have made more post than I have. Dana is also platinum. There must be a number around 350 that switches a member from elite to platinum!!! That's our guess anyway! ;)
Happy Quilting,

Maybe elite are the ones who signed up before the web site launched. Oh well. We will find out eventually and it's not as important as other things on the site.
