True enough intrepid, true enough, but I do come up with some good threads, and ideas for the site, every once in a while, wouldn't you say?

Welcome to the club.


Well just take solstice in the fact that your applause might out number your flags and your stars outnumber your total number of posts...like me.


BTW---my math shows 30 more years of quality posting to go with my moderately unnoticed threads.

In the end, I am not overly concerned. Never applied myself towards the Writer, Fighter, Scholar tags. And I make it known to the person should I add them to the the old friend list (short as that is). However it is my feeling that someone should continue receiving the ads. I mean once there is no one to view them, how much would they be worth to the site after all?

Over all, I support this idea. Sure there are some things that can be exploited in the process. But flags, like mail..requires effort, in this case writing, to get them. Now if we could just get the number of individual members that view a thread started back then we would be back in business.

Ok, i'm really confused, there are NO ads on this site, well for me at least.

So....confused.

Hey i'm part of the new club! Thanks...it's nice not to have the ads. I was having problems with them before..although it has been much better lately.

I also like the applause idea someone else mentioned.

I also don't think this is a popularity contest as someone else mentioned.

I look at the stars and flags as good things...that means what you have to say or represent to those here who search the threads on ATS...it has relevance to them.

That's the best reward in all..IMO.

This is an added bonus!

Dang, I don't even care about getting rid of the ads, but you guys are making me feel left out.

I have more applause's than I do flags. I have a better chance of getting 250 applause's than I do flags. Way over 250 on the other 2 requirements though. Nearly 3k posts and 1400 stars.

Maybe the requirements are disproportionate?

My competitive nature is getting at me here, as I could care less about the ads, but have an odd desire to meet the requirements of a "quality" member.

Silly I know

How about merit badges?

Maybe I should shut up, since I like no ads, but I have 1999 posts and 255 flags (both over 250, this is 2000th post, by a fluke) but it says I only have either 14 or 15 flags, depending which number I use. I think one is how many flags I've given out and the other is how many I've received. I have no advertising anywhere.

There are the (possibly) relevant numbers.

I don't know, that looks more white to me than it does gray. Besides, any set of 3-in-a-row between 1 and 254 could be construed in such a manner.


Anyway, I thought I wouldn't meet the stars requirement, but to my shock, I easily surpassed it. It's nice to have a flag and star counter to keep track of it.

Wow, I was almost about to start querying why my profile has 250/250/250 linking here.

But I read and found out.

Cool, 250 clubs..

Another great idea guys. I can't wait to see it implemented! Thanks again!

I apparently have only 20 flags?

I have over 3500 posts,
almost 3500 stars,

but only 20 flags?
I'm quite positive I've gotten more flags than that over the years.

No biggie though... I've gotten kinda used to the ads now.

Big thanks to Bill and Mark for giving us this free pass out of pop up hell. I logged on the other week as an outsider and the ads literally froze my computer.

I hadn't been on here in several days and was curious as to what the 250/250 bar on my profile indicated. I was definitely pleased and relieved to learn about this new feature.

And here I was confused and thinking I had been marked for termination




Thanks again fellas

This is awesome, thank you staff at ATS. Much thanks.
Its nice not to have irrlevent ads that are annoying. Finally I no longer have to look at them.

Tools --> Pop-up Blocker --> Pop-up Blocker Setting --> High does the same job.

These adds that ocassionally divide the posts are okay, though. I like them, coz you don't have to click them off your screen, and sometimes they are more interesting than what they are flanked with. I would flag some of them but I don't know how.
