There are stars. You're starting at zero and have to work your way up. Smile

You know what. The ranking system is similar, but the numbers for each level might be slightly different than FSM. In regards to titles, I'm thinking it probably hasn't been discussed yet. You're welcome to suggest a set of titles and I'm sure the Andy and Jim will take them into consideration. That's how the titles on FSM came to be.

So let me guess, you get stars for number of post's ??
this would explain Chris and Ron's presence EVERYWHERE !!
Also David Did you get myemail Re; login problem ?
I've noticed the page that comes up shows the other ID,
but once I get past that it seems to recognize the correct ID ?
Also, I'm lousy @ HTML, even with the "Help" I still could'nt post
a pic, any suggestions of a quick and easy tutorial ??
Catch Ya around,
John

I think the titles nor ranks should go by post count, but instead be earned!

And there is a problem with this??? LOL Actually I get very little sleep(typically 4 hrs) I do a lot of work/ordering on the computer....I belong to almost 10 BB's but only really post on 2 here and FSM....Ive been waiting anxiously for this forum for quite sometime! And hey Im on the welcome wagon here as well as FSM just like Ron is....LOL Besides not like Im getting paid for every post I make....its just something I enjoy! I dont post replies to things I have no interest in....such as the Helicopter and Ship Forum over at FSM. I dont belong to a local club....I very rarely go to shows or the local club meetings....this is my local club....just so happens everyone is spread across the globe.

Personally I could care less about the stars.....without them I would still have the same number of posts and would still reply to what interested me. If you think I make a lot of posts now....wait until I get a way to post my pics online! I'll either be shopping for a new digicam(for the new home PC Im having built) or a new scanner today....Right now Im having to use my ancient 35mm and have no way of scanning in the pics since my old scanner crapped the bed.

My point is this...You have a lot of people signed up on this site! Some will post once or twice and never be heard from again. Others will post frequently but wont reply to everything...and others still never post and just lurk. Whats a BB without posts? A waste of bandwidth and a perfectly good .COM site! Now as far as my posting concerning this forum...well in real life Im a chatty person, its no different for me online either. I talk with several folks from FSM through MSN messenger....We talk about everything modeling related and some not. I like seeing pics of peoples models and making comments...I like asking and recieving feedback. I dont see anything wrong with that!

Take away the stars and the tittles.....Id still have the same number of posts!

WOW chris!!!!! Take a breath once in awhile,ok?? LOLLOL


I reflect most of what chris said!!!

With 2 kids. a wife ahouse and a dog,I dont always get alot of relaxation time, especially when i was workin.

Now that i got layed off, and i going to school, i'm actually at home at night, getting to enjoy thigs like i couldn't before,i used to work 3rd shift.

Thats where the modelling came in.... I hung out over at the FSM site, and i like it there, and then this site opened, and i would like to do my part in making this site successful!!

I'm here for the fun, freindship, and a common bond and love of a hobby. NOT to see how many stars i can get!!!

I have to agree with Chris and Ron on this!! This is here to have fun maybe make some new friends and modelers of diff experince levels with there problems and things so why make a big deal out of stars,I mean I would be right up there with um if I had more time during the day to be online and when I am is mainly at night and my 2 days a week off so lets just have fun in here and enjoy this wonderful new site...

I don't wish to be rude or to ruffle feathers, but I have a counter-opinion to post about the "rating stars". I don't feel they should be used at all, and my reason is as follows: I believe it encourages people to post just to inflate their rating, thereby leading to posts with little or no substance. My 2 cents.

Count me in on this one too. That's the worst thing about Message boards with post-rankings. I almost always avoid these types of message boards because of the "post accumulators" who reply to everything they can just to get stars. The only reason I'm hanging around here is because it's Scale Auto and I wish to give it a chance. A few more worthless replies and meaningless posts and I'm outta here.
