You can change that in your profile if you want. It says senior member because you have made a certain number of posts.

Heck, I would have to be a "senior senior!"

Sorry, you aren't a borderline member....you exceed 6 feet, so you're a Clyde forever.

I was 6'4" when I was younger, so by the time I am 120 I will likely not be a "Clyde" any more.
