Demotion?
May 20th, 2010 at 3:57pm
 
I remember having been a god member some time ago, and now I’m back on senior. No tragedy, but, well... Cry  Undecided  Sad

I hope I have not committed any offence against the slinging.org etiquette.  Shocked

Maybe there has just been a sudden change in the quantity of posts required to climb up the ranks?

if being sensible is incorrect then i don't know what. when you go onto the "members" page (http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?action=ml), and sort them by posts, those beneath 1000 are now considered senior. i assume the posts number has risen than.

Does this indicate that that an extra 250 meaningless me too posts are now needed.

Well, reaching the status later is one thing. Finding yourself being pushed down from Olympus after having tasted the nectar and ambrosia of slinging.org and being just a senior (=old) again is something else.

Excellent idea, Steven. We mortals are not as powerless as we seem.

Will that be general gratuitousness that nearly all will recognize.

Will it be gratuitousness that only your special powers can recognize.

I would have put this into the 'my me too  thread' but ;

(me too)

the thread disappeared.

#15/250

Well, threads do seem to disappear more easily than they used to.

It seems to me somewhat capricious to change these thresholds, and I fail to see how it will encourage higher quality postings.

The status change post numbers are arbitrary numbers that were lowered a few years ago. I've just returned them to their original values Smiley
The value table is below.

And yes steven even very small petulant children will be able to recognise completely gratuitous posts.

It's not a new thing, usually it's the younger forum members who decided they will change their status by starting a thread and just posting lots of replies to it.
They get deleted, they always have been deleted, long before I came on the scene.

Very few threads that are not started by spammers ever get deleted.
Pointless post change treads that are obviously there just to change a members status have always been one of the exceptions.

I'm just trying my best to keep the forum a pleasant, sensible place for people to hang out.

It would have been good had you posted the new thresholds at the top of every forum as a sticky
and offered apologies to all who were effected. There would have been no surprises and we would
not have to endured your LOL message. And by the way your temper tantrums (deleting entire threads and selective posts without prior contact), just make you look foolish Wink even if you word them well.

I'm changing my sig to "Me2" as a reminder that even Administrators can indulge in capricious behavior. Cry
