    Default I'm not a Novice! - the 'status' debate

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    It has come to my attention that our User Titles may need some revision. Specifically the use of the title "Novice" to describe new members may not be appropriate because it could be construed to mean an AutoCAD novice, whereas we all know that some new members are actually AutoCAD experts.

    So, I'd like to change this to something like "Forum Newbie".

    Other suggestions will be considered - let me know.

    What are the other categories of classification?

    Maybe 'plebeian' would be appropriate?

    I think it's already clear.

    I mean it's well understood that the rank is related to the forum and not to ACAD skills although "Forum Newbie" would be fine.

    With only over 9 posts required to get out of the novice category, it shouldn't be a problem.
    See, I did it.

    Not to nit-pick but I think something is broken. I lost my "Forum Deity" status when you switched over to the new board. Not a big deal but you might want to check some code to see that it is set correctly. I thought that you just changed them. Anyway, no big deal.

    Yes, your Super Moderator status overrides your Forum Deity title in vBulletin. I'll see what I can do about that - only fair to give credit where credit is due.

    You're right, we all did it, but some people have very fragile ego's and being called a novice just really bothers them. I think "Forum Newbie" would probably be a better title, it's much more obvious that the title refers to their forum status and not their experience level.

    I also think that having more titles, spaced out at maybe every 500 posts might be nice. Just to have a little more variety. It's a long haul from 500 to 2000, and even further from 2000 to 5000.

    That's exactly the issue.

    Well, if you can come up with an amusing naming scheme, I'll consider it.

    Neophyte at the beginning and Grandmaster at the end. Or...

    Grasshopper at the beginning and Megasauraus at the end. No, that's not mega-sore-ass which is a completely different forum.

    Corporal at the beginning and Command-in-Chief at the end. Although I'd love to hang out for awhile at either Sargent-Major or Left-tenant ha, ha.
