I'm not sure 500 is right

cause I was looking at the top posters and Xcom is one of 'em but only half a dozen are senior members and one who had about 672 posts wasn't a senior member.....

unless he/she had their post count pushed from the old forum, then maybe they don't count toward senior member status

Xcom

given that you know all the postees in this thread as members from the old forum, who are all (in reality) Senior members.

To save us worrying our selves anymore what about changing us to Seniors :)

No, 500 is pretty much right. I am not sure whether it was like this from the beginning. Look again at Top10 posters, pages 1 and 2. Everybody beyond 500 is a Senior Member while someone with 497 posts (at this moment) is a plain Member. Sometimes, this title is changed by an admin.

Can't do, sorry. But, you'll get there, eventually, as you so noticed yourself. ;)

Ps: this forum didn't show new replies. :confused: That's why I didn't bother to check this thread.

Why?

(Re)spawning is getting back in the game after you got killed (= fragged) in a game like Quake or Unreal Tournament or other.

Another user had the Status of "Roont"

Any idea what that is Xcom?

Also check out Willow (http://forums.eidosgames.com/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=314) 688 posts and just a member

Something that user has entered in his status field while he had the chance and there are more people with custom titles. There was a time (coupla days after the opening of this forum) when RedLegg was experimenting with the software and enabled custom status for members and forgot to disable it afterwards (he did disable it but only after few hours). Some people noticed that; so they used the golden opportunity to enter custom text. And they have it ever since. And don't ask me why it hasn't been restored back to normal because I don't know.

I also don't know about Willow and what's the story with his status or counter but that's an exception, I guess.

I moderate the Desperados forum on the Infogrames UK site, and they have been using vBulletin Version 2.2.1 for about a year now.

Anyways on that board you can change the status of your Custom User Text to whatever you want. E.G. King of the World or Roont.

I haven't check to see if this feature is turned on for this board or not, but that sounds like what it is.

I posted that cause it was obvious that Thorup didn't know the differance between Spawning and Spamming.

Again it seemed that ragsy didn't know about this.

We all can't be all knowing like you 1shot. ;)

Is there a consideration to reinstitute the post account? In other words to make it visible again?

Thorup this is a family site, be careful with that kind of talk. Besides, you can't keep just irresponsibly spawning -- think of all those illegimate children running around your town!
