You go from Junior Member to Member somewhere around 30-40 posts, and Senior Member at 500.

I think you need to talk with one of the already Moderators, to become one.

Time to edit! Go up to the Members button at near the top of the screen http://forums.eidosgames.com/images/top_members.gif and click on it. Then you can find your name in there, and see how many posts you have so far, or I can check for you, if you'd like. :p

You can click on your profile, or anyone elses, to find the current post count (The Eidos Admins only took off the visable post count).

Okay, you have 217 posts, and are ranked 60th.

Post counts were disabled awhile back because a few people complained to the Moderators in the main Eidos Community Forums. And a vote was taken, that supposedly was going to speak for all of the members, which it didn't. Because although the votes in the poll were in the majority for disabling the posts, the majority of the members here were outraged that the posts were disabled, and they hadn't had a chance to vote, or even let their opinion be known.

I don't mind about not having a visable post count. The main reason it was disabled was to cut down one the spaming back then.

0 -35 = Junior Member
35 - 500 = Member
500+ = senior Member

as for post counts.....don't even get me started on that one!!!!!

Your post count isn't important.

Its what IN your posts that should matter.

Back when the poll was being taken in the Eidos Forums, there had been discussions about something to replace the post counts. One of the things discussed was karma points. These I think basically were points that you would get for being an active member, helping other members if they needed help with something, and the content of your posts. I think that was a really great idea! :)

Gawd I can't believe this is being discussed again - to paraphrase DaveJ its quality not quantity that counts!!!

the post count view in threads was taken down because it served no purpuse other than spam encuragement
