It's not the number, but the quality. They reviewed your posts and thought they were all super-top-notch quality and helpful so gave you senior member status.


That's great....it took me 3000 posts to get senior status.

KT, I think what really happened is your posts were SO brilliant that they assumed they were being written by a 60-strong team of trained monke... erm..writers.

And we felt sorry for you too. The plate of fresh cookies was a nice touch, that probably went farther than anything else for you KT.

Good to know. Don't ask for the recipe though.....you DON'T want to know what was in them.

He fed the cookies to his kid. As an "I don't trust you" test. Poor thing. Didn't you see that pic of him on the toilet?

(next time don't use so much ex-lax, KT!)

Maybe the newbie/junior/senior limits were set when BF was just getting started? What limits would you suggest? After a year and a half and about 3,000 posts I still do not feel like a senior member.

I don't feel qualified to answer that but I'd certainly think more than 50. Good point on the limits being set when BF was getting started. That is understandable.
