Okay, i think that we need to create a new member rank for Indydebi, and anyone else who might, maybe, ever, get anywhere close to her number of posts. I mean there's gotta be something bigger & better than "superstar"?

What about "Forum MegaStar" ... or "Forum Master" ... or "Forum Celebrity" ... or i don't know! But I think we definately need something above SuperStar.

Suggestions?

Yeah, I agree! Once you hit 10,000+ posts there should be a new category! How about "Forum Queen" or "The Big Cheese" lol jk! "Forum Leader," "Forum V.I.P."....."Forum Bigwig"...."Forum Hotshot!"..."Forum Magnate." I could probably come up with a ton more.

How about "Current Cake Central Matriarch" or "Current CC Alpha Female?"

She's the third one since I've been here - first was SquirrelCakes, then Shirley, now IndyDeby. The position seems to change annually. Up next will be kakeladi...or perhaps Jan, although I think she should have her own title of "Cake Central Human Wikipedia" since she has such an amazing grasp on where to find what information. icon_smile.gif

LOL

Glad to see you all so intrested in cake and not who has the most posts.

I never noticed that at all. I guess I have been so engrossed in reading about cake and learning from very knowledgable people who are willing to share some good information that I just missed the amount of posts a person has!

I just judge a cc member by what they share and how they share and how their ways and ideas have helped me and baffled me!

Why should people be judged by how they are ranked as opposed to the knowledge they are willing to share and the help they give?

CC is a great place but it's also a community of all differents types of personalities and walks of life, real people that gather in the same spot and share and talk and argue and laugh and cry.

So do we really need more rankings so that people can "hit and run" (people seeking out the highest ranked members for their learning and sort of not really getting to know a few of the regulars and a feel for the place)

or do we acknowledge these people through learning, show them some respect, listen to them, learn from them and question them, never be afraid to question people on their methods as that's where real knowledge lies (IMO).

Maybe we should ask the higher ranked members which way they would like to be acknowledged?

I am sorry HUGE rant it's just that I think rankings are a little silly. HOWEVER I do appreciate that they are a sign of acknowledgement but there should be a nicer way of acknowleding people don't you think like maybe the one mentioned above?

icon_sad.gif i didn't mean any harmful words... i just figured most people posting that much probably know a lot since they were sharing so much...


but i figure it's the lounge and talking about forum names is a little "silly" but what better place for silliness than away from the crowds....


anyone who ever gives me help i don't look at their rank and suddenly dismiss anyone under 300 posts, or whatever number you choose... and i would hope anyone wouldn't do that to me, since i'm fairly new to posting... i'm working my way up though thumbs_up.gif

I never hold the number of posts against (or in favor of) someone. Just cause they are new to CC doesn't mean they are new to caking. I always thought that CC showing the # of posts & giving their members a "rank" was just a fun, silly thing to do. Like allowing us to post avatars. Gives us some personality, ya know?
