    What is that fruity red star beside everyone's name for?

    I want a gold one.

    Actually, it is a participation star. New folks, like yourself, or folk who post utter nonsense generally have no stars. Those with red stars have demonstrated themselves with useful, well thought out posts.

    Those with blue stars used to have red stars and now are on the verge of losing their star because of posts with lots of nonsense.

    Red star is a paid subscriber and blue star is either Admin or Moderator.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    But now you have a red star--does this mean that you have demonstrated the ability to post useful, well thought out posts?

    No, if anything

    Non paying member - high quality and quantity posts
    MOD - good quality, still high quantity
    admin - good quality but I never posted
    Paying member - good quality - semi high post count

    take that as you want, but I find the threads in general today more diluted than they use to be (in mtbiking specifically), I miss some of my adversaries that really took to fighting points and talking shop.

    so to answer, My posts have likely become less useful and less thought out because they don't need to be...

    I tried to go post in the MTB thread. It sucks. They just ask the same things over and over: "What do you carry, what kind of bike to get, to have or not to have clipless pedals, etc, etc, blah blah blah." Foo is way better. You could be talking about dogs, mice, poop, quail, hijacked threads, dying, cheating girlfriends, beating baby seals, Chipcom, beef jerky, who's hot and who's not, or whatever else you can think of. And now that I think about it, I want to talk about the effect global warming is having on the polar ice caps. Either that or the number 42. Take your pick.

    If you want to be one of the cool kids, click on a red star and you can help support your new addiction. No, I didn't mean that one - this one.

    By the way, I went to do it, but the only payment method was paypal - which I don't have. Do you have an easier method to accept money?

    Probably worth more, then again, I still don't think the new owners would appreciate Joe making money off of your star

    Well, I understand that my posts are not necessarily 'high quality', but they are usually friendly, and sometimes helpful .

    I don't really mind seeing the ads and I have used some of the sponsors - works better for me really.

    whoa...I didn't mean it as an insult...ahahaha..I was commenting on my quality of posts having gone down. And thats more due to a lack of the discussions we used to have early on. Really technical discussions about suspension, braking systems etc. Actual science behind the machine. Thats lost in the mtb forum now.
