It was tough dealing with the first one sneaking a post or two every chance he got, now we have a secnod one ? Looks like our work had been cut out. With two of them on the loose, the board is not safe for us 'normal' posters, YIKES !!!!

any1 wanna make predictions on how long until i become a freak?

December 7, 2002, 04:51 AM
That's enough time for most of you, isn't it ?

I think I need to slow down. I like the sound of Senior Member better than Posting Freak. But yeah, by the end of the WC, I bet most of us will become freaks!

If you two want, I can change the settings to change you back to senior members. :)

The whole point of ranking is "motivation" for the members to post frequently. But the this ranking system is working reverse. Also, only 500 posts - "posting freak" - it's a little harsh.

So my suggestion would be to change the whole ranking system to a more "cricket rank" system. You ppl are more creative, so you figure it out... but an example would be.

0-10 Debutant
11-99 ??
100-199 Centurian
200-?? Double centurian (can be different)
??-?? Test Player
??-?? etc etc

There will be some exceptions to the members ranking. Ex: Tehsin

Tehsin : Chairman of BCB (tehsin bhai, joking :))

There might even be on request ranking after certain amount of posts-- let's say 500

So, Raj, fwullah can request -
ex: Rajputro - ODI Specialist

Be Creative!

Post your suggestions/the name of each rank

Wanna hear from the "freaks" on this one. :)

Great idea Orpheus. We can do that. Or just change the freak to "VIP Member".

That will motivate all.

I agree with Rajpurtro. VIP member sounds better than a posting freak.

Thanks Tehsin bhai. Now I feel normal.

have the Millenium Club in there, too, the freaks are making progress towards the elusive 1000 mark.

After immense pressure from the said, we can't call them freaks anymore. I believe that you ought to apologize to them and maybe call them former freaks. otherwise, my mail boxes will be filled with complaints. As you can see, they don't hessitate to spill their mind. 500+ post ain't that easy.

It takes a big man to to admit their mistake. I am just glad that you realize that they are freaks no more. They are VIP members.
