We get this question once or twice a year. I think it has been answered, but maybe not... or maybe we lost it.

 

Where do Member Ranks Come From?

 

Members often complain that they have been members for years and are still newbies. That is because

 

Member Ranks are determined by number of posts and not by how long someone has been a member.

 

Lots of folks sign up as members and never post. Even more sign up as members and read without signing in. Some sign up as members, decide against moving to Yucatan - or leave Yucatan to go home - and never post again. Either way, time alone would not make them any kind of an expert. 

 

The Member Ranks and the range of numbers of posts for each category are: 

 

Lurker: 0 – 4 posts

Newbie: 5 – 19 posts

Member: 20 – 99 posts

Advanced Member: 100 – 249 posts

Super Advanced: 250 – 499 posts

Expert: 500 – 999 posts

Veteran: 1,000 – 4,999 posts

Genius: 5,000 – 9,999 posts

Double-Super Genius: 10,000 posts

I'm shown as a Supporter but I must be a Double-Super Genius by now! (in my own mind, anyway)

ChuckD -- "Supporters" was a tag born way back in the late stages of Malcom's ownership of Yolisto -- assigned to people that financially contributed to the Yolisto site.  Back in the day, if memory serves, that also earned a few other "benefits", like not being shown site advertising, etc.  When usernames got lost (and many recreated) sometime later, the Supporters designation carried over, though I'm not sure it actually MEANS anything anymore.

Agreed. I was a supporter so I know what it stands for. But since Khaki didn't include it in her list, it obviously doesn't have any meaning.

I for one, doubt making 5000+ posts makes anyone a Genius!

Thanks for the posting.  I'm still a "Newbie" but in my mood today I might rather be a "Lurker", has a better ring to it.
