I'll bet I missed the topic where we found out the ranks according to post number changed? LOL ....I was a fanatic...today I am a regular member...hehe
I think Jackie mentioned something in the contests forum.
One reason she did this is for the contests she is thinking of making it a minimum of 20 posts in order to enter a photo in the contest.
Here is a link to the topic that Jackie mentions the new rankings.
It has been put up for discussion in that thread that in order to compete in a contest you must obtain a rank of junior member.
Hope this helps
