There are still some things I haven't figured out:

1) What are the "member" labels about? Why are some people "new members" while others (who may be newer) are "intermediate" or "advanced members"?

2) What do the ratings mean and how do you vote?

...That's all for now...

Nic,

I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong, so here goes.

1.) The member status isn't based on time, it is based on post count. Once your posts reach a certain number you move into a diferent member category.

2.) You vote for someone by clicking the small link that is under their avatar(if they have one) or under their name and login name. It's the last thing under a person's information. The rating that a person has is based on the vote(s) they have received.

A very minor quibble:

With the "message board" could the intermediate link be deleted?

In the past there has been some drama concerning bad behaviour, flaming, name calling and infantile BS like that. As a result a board of moderators was formed to baby-sit, and a statement of policy was placed on that "intermediate link". Believe it or not we'd actually like you (everybody) to read those words, and not treat our (everybodies) board like every other internet sink hole.

It wasn't meant to inconvenience you, it was a reaction to the 10% who muck things up. So - no it won't go away.

Regards

Nic: The member labels (new, intermediate, etc.) are a lame feature of Discus, the message board software. They equate quantity of posts with quality of posts. Maybe we should scrap the labels.

Paul: What do you mean by "could the intermediate link be deleted"?

Regards,

Brian

I think the labels are obnoxious. The only thing worth keeping is the "moderator" designation.

I wonder if they are misleading. I post a lot and so that gives me a "higher" status than others who may or may not have more expertise in a particular subject.

I think it would be very useful if we could come up with a "coach" or "CF authority" disignation. Some of the newer members may not have a clue who they are getting advice from.

Pass those out to our heavy hitters who aren't moderators. Coach Sommer, Rodger H., Tyler, etc., etc.

What do you think? Is it even possible?

I don't find the member label obnoxious .. but it could certainly be misleading to the unitiated. Removing it would be fine, but the designation of "coach" or "CF authority" could be just as misleading and problematic. The moderators are here to keep the board civil and on point.

I think people need to take some responsibility for using the advice dispensed on this site (or any other) in a judicious manner. Read the posts for a while, make your own judgements about who is credible, and then go forward from there.
